It has been about 13 months since quarantine began. In those 13 months, many fads and hobbies arose to fill in the time. Tiktok videos, bracelet making, and DIY crafts became common ways to enjoy our lazy, long days.
One particular hobby for me was baking (because who doesn’t love treats!); in fact, baking became not just a quarantine hobby, but a BBYO trend. Events across the International Order included cake mixing, challah making, sweet treat sessions, and more.
As an amateur baker, these events were so much fun, but sometimes so infuriating. I loved baking with my chapter and enjoyed having a fun and easy way to connect with my friends over zoom. However...there were difficulties. A big issue was that not everyone was able to join in on the baking. If they did not have a mix, the right ingredients to make the recipe from scratch, or the time to buy these items, then it made it hard to participate in the event.
To resolve this issue and make baking programs even more perfect, here are 3 Quarantine-Ease Easy Recipes! These recipes require minimal ingredients that result in maximum yumminess!
For this delicious recipe, all you need is 4 overripe bananas, cinnamon, 12 dates, and ½ cup water. With these four common ingredients, you can create a great dessert.
Sugar cookies are classic cookies that deserve a lot of love. With this recipe, you can make amazing cookies with 1 stick + 2 TB salted butter, ⅓ cup sugar, 1 cup flour, and sprinkles (if you wish!)
For all-out chocolate lovers, this recipe is heavenly! Using only 3 cups of semisweet chocolate chips, 1 can condensed sweet milk, and ¼ cup butter, you can create an amazingly delicious treat.
Using these easy recipes, you’ll be sure to have a fun and easy chapter event (and a lot of yummy bakes!)
