Bitter Sweet who made these Cough Syrup Cupcakes.
I must admit, I don't think its the ideal way to get your kids to take their meds or vitamins but it iscertainly an alternative.
When the medication makes your Kiddiewinx gag and you know they really need to get the meds in, wouldn't you rather give them something that makes them happy?
I think its ingenius!!!
Remember that chocolate cake with the "bits" in it that gave you the giggles? We've all done it...
Make teeny weeny muffins or bake the legal meds into a biscuit and dunk it in yer morning tea!
So, go grab your favourite recipe and incorporate your meds into it.
My Favourite McVities Biscuit Recipe
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon rolled oats 4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons milk (replace 1 of the tablespoons with your meds)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Mix in the oatmeal. Cream together the butter and the sugar and add to mixture. Stir in the milk until mixture forms a thick paste.
3. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth. Roll out dough to approximately 1/8" thickness. Cut into rounds with cookie cutter about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Transfer to cookie sheets and prick with a fork.
4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden. Let cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight tin.
Don't forget to share your meds in a treat recipe with me. Looking forward to swapping drug recipes...
