The latest from our resident kid baker

Lily Barnes is our 11-year-old resident kid baker. Each month she shares an original recipe that kids can make at home with their parents, plus a few behind-the-scenes tips and tricks to make your treat extra special. Here is Lily’s recipe for Snicker Cake Mix Cookies:


I chose to make this dessert because I love chocolate and I thought it would be fun to add my favorite candy bar on top of the cookies. I think others would have fun making this because they can pick their favorite chocolate candy bar as the topping on each cookie.—Lily
