Homemade Churros & Doughnuts: Kizmos Kitchen Tools Giveaway
Print Friendly

This post is brought to you by Kizmos.

Do your kids like to help you in the kitchen? I use the word *help* very loosely! In any case, they will love using these wonderful Kizmos kitchen tools featured in today’s post- An easy recipe to make churros and doughnuts .

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and keep ready.

Measure and mix the cinnamon and sugar to create the cinnamon-sugar mixture. We used the cheery and bright measuring spoons from Kizmos’ “Get Happy” Collection. The tools did justice to their name- they were colorful and my preschooler enjoyed using the “happy spoons”.

The joy of cooking increases with gadgets that make cooking look seamless and so much fun. Kizmos does just that. There is countless research that recommends to let kids assist you in the kitchen so they are comfortable with the ingredients and so take the pressure off in trying something new . For my picky eater to try any food without rejecting it instantly,  is a huge effort. Working with Kizmos has broadened the scope for her to try to get more hands on with me in the kitchen which has helped her open herself up to trying foods just because she’s played a big role in creating the dish.

Next step in this simple recipe, unroll the dough sheet and cut it into 4 rectangles.

We used Kizmos Pizza Cutter for this.. They are gentle than a sharp knife and a tool like kizmos cutter erases the fear of using a regular serrated knife.

Brush the melted butter on the 4 rectangles and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon – sugar mixture.

We again used their measuring spoons to sprinkle evenly on the sheets.  We then laid  two rectangles one over the other like a pile and cut into strips along the longer side. We twisted them  couple of times to make the churros. [ Great fine motor exercise for the young ones]

On to the doughnuts.

We used other 2 rectangles to make a pile one on top of the other and we used the Kizmos Nesting Cups ( the largest 1 cup measure) to create doughnut circles. We used a small round cookie cutter to create the doughnut hole.

A quick note: Kizmos Nesting Cups come in a set of 3 and each part ( in total 6) is a measuring cup of a different size.

We laid the churros and the dough nuts on a baking tray and baked at 350 degrees for 9 – 11 minutes.

Time to enjoy the treats made with these fun little tools.

In terms of play ideas, the cups and spoons also can serve as wonderful scooping and pouring tools in a sensory bin. The nesting cups especially can be used in multiple ways during play and play based learning. Try hiding wooden letters and numbers inside the cups, counting exercises with the cups as storage boxes, ordering according to size, perfect stacking toy for the baby and many more.
