Chocolate-y Fun For Kids

Some of you already know that when it comes to cooking, (in our house) we have to be super careful because one of our nieces has Celiac Disease (gluten/wheat allergy) and both she and her sister have nut allergies. Here's a quick and easy (and oh so yummy) recipe that both our nieces can enjoy :) Today I had my nieces and my two students all help make 200 of these cookies for the baseball game and library fundraiser (as per my sister-in-law's request).

Chocolate Drop Cookies
Yields 2 dozen

2 c milk choc chips
1 tbsp vegetable shortening
1/2 c dried cranberries
1/2 c sunflower seeds

In a double boiler, over simmering water, melt the choc chips and shortening, stir until smooth. Remove from heat, stir in cranberries and sunflower seeds. Drop by tbsp onto waxed paper. Chill.
