Sunday night is treat night at our house. We’ve been doing this for so long now, I can’t even remember how or when it started, but it’s something our whole family looks forward to the entire week. We take turns choosing the treat, and then we make it together! I love all of us in the kitchen–talking, laughing, and figuring out whose turn it is to break the eggs. It’s those family moments that I love best, when there are no distractions, and we’re just spending time together working in the kitchen.
Cupcakes and brownies are always popular choices around here, so I always make sure to stay stocked up on Pillsbury cake mixes, brownie mixes, and frosting. I always like to be prepared for any Sunday night treat requests! This week the pick was strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and Pillsbury made it so simple and easy to make these delightful Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes and mix up a moment with my family!
My kids like to help with every part of making the cupcakes, from breaking the eggs to filling the cupcake liners, and everything in between. They stand over the mixer, mesmerized by the beaters, and can’t wait until the frosting goes on so they can have a taste. Not only are we sharing some really special family moments, but they’re also learning some great life skills, and gaining self-esteem as they go. Love that!
Once the treats are done (and even while they’re baking), it’s time for games or a movie. It’s the last bit of family time we get before the busy week starts, and we relish it.
Walmart makes it easy stock up on all of our favorite Pillsbury mixes and frostings, and I love that they’re easy on my wallet too. It means that I can always be ready for any requests that come my way—they are just a family moment waiting to happen!
The cupcakes were a huge hit, and we even have some leftover for school lunches tomorrow!
