Baking is an art form that requires practice to master. You don't have to be a whiz with flour and sugar to make delicious desserts, however. These easy baking recipes use few ingredients, making them perfect for kids and novices. According to KidsHealth, cooking with kids can help boost basic skills and confidence. So, tie an apron on and try out these five no-fail baking recipes.

1. Coconut Macaroons

No-fail baking recipes often have minimal ingredients — like these two-ingredient coconut macaroons packed with sweetness and flavor.


  • 12 ounces shredded coconut
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and mix ingredients in a bowl. Shape into bite-sized cones, and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are slightly brown. Cool before serving.

2. Cake Bars

When it comes to baking recipes for the whole family, these cake bars really take the cake.


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 1/3 cup sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine cake mix, egg, milk, and oil in a large bowl to make a thick batter. Add baking chips and sprinkles. Spread mixture into a greased 15x10-inch baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.

3. Rocky Road Cookie Cups

Less than five ingredients and bite-sized portions make these rocky road cookie cups one of the best baking recipes for kids.


  • 1 tube chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a mini muffin tin and press a piece of dough into each cup, shaping it to the sides. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Make an indentation in each cookie cup with a spoon. Add marshmallows, chocolate chips, and almonds. Bake for 2 more minutes.

4. Double Chocolate Biscotti

Double chocolate biscotti go with multiple meals for the whole family. Have a piece with a cup of hot coffee at breakfast or serve as an after-dinner treat.


  • 1 tube chocolate chip cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup white baking chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 375F. Knead ingredients until well combined. Divide the dough in half. Flatten each portion onto a greased baking sheet to a size of 13 inches by 2 1/2 inches. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces. Separate pieces approximately 1/4 inch, then bake for 5 more minutes.

5. Apple Pie Bites

These bite-size apple pie pieces require a lot of little hands, making it a great option for baking with children.


  • 1 package refrigerated pie dough
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat oven to 425F. Unroll pie crusts on a lightly floured surface and cut into an 8x8-inch square. Brush melted butter on the crust and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Cut the crust into 1-inch strips. Wrap around a slice of apple and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Top with more butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Bake for 15 minutes.
