Five Rainy Day Recipes for Little Hands

When the weather is gloomy, there’s only one thing to do: get in the kitchen! If you’re cooped up with tiny helpers, whip up something together. These kid-friendly recipes are easy to make and even more fun to eat.

Athens Foods - Cherry Cordials

Phyllo Cherry Cordials

We think the cherry on top is the best part of a fudge sundae. If you agree, you’ll love these maraschino and milk chocolate cordials. Chocolate gently warmed inside phyllo shells in the microwave makes this safe for younger children.


Athens - MeatLoversPizza

Meat Lovers Mini Pizzas

Pizza on a mini bagel? That’s old news. For a fun take on a classic recipe, fill phyllo shells with pizza ingredients. This easy snack comes together in no time and can be customized with whatever toppings suit your tiny chefs’ tastes.


Turkey Sloppy Joes

Not-So-Sloppy Joes

With a little supervision, older kids can cook up this simple sloppy Joe recipe. By combining ground turkey, pre-made tomato sauce and flaky phyllo, you’ve got a healthy treat that makes minimal mess — meaning you can bring dinner out of the dining room and into the den.


Phyllo Flower Pots - Athens Foods

Phyllo Flower Pots

Too wet to get out and garden? Plant assorted berries and fruits in a bed of chocolate pudding instead. To create a more dirt-like effect, crush your favorite sandwich cookie in a plastic baggie and sprinkle over the pudding base.

PBJ & Banana Mini Shell Tarts

PB & Banana Tartlets

A lunchbox staple gets a phyllo upgrade. Pre-swirled PB & J makes this recipe a cinch, but you could just as easily mix your favorite jam or jelly in these simple shells and top with banana slices. For an added crunch, add a dash of granola.
