My kiddos LOVE cooking. It’s an awesome way to work on sequencing, following directions, expressive and receptive vocabulary, fine motor skills, and more all in a super motivating way. Last week my guys made double fudge. Now normally most things they make are not super appetizing to me. We are working (tirelessly) on good hygiene etc. but I swear – every freaken time they cook someone sneezes a little to close to comfort to the mixing bowl. Every. time. But – I have to admit – I tried a little piece of this double fudge recipe after they made it (I have a crazy strong immune system I figured) and it was dang good.
My seriously amazing speech therapist kindly let me share this recipe with you all! Hope you love it as much as we did!
There is a two page visual recipe for your students who needs some visuals! Double Fudge Recipe with Pics- 1 and Double Fudge Recipe with Pics- 2
There is a visual comprehension worksheet to use after: Double Fudge Questions
… and then there is a harder version of the recipe with no visuals for your students who can handle a little challenge! Double Fudge Recipe- text.
Happy friday! 🙂

I love the visuals go along with the recipe! Any chance you or your SLP would be willing to share some examples of the speech and language goals your kiddos have?
Here are a few goals:
Using classroom materials, Brian will verbally answer “where”, “who”, “when”, “why”, and “how” questions using a 3+ word utterance after listening to a story, reading a story, or completing a sequential task in 8/10 trials given moderate visual and verbal prompting within a structured setting.
Using classroom materials, Adrian will choose a single picture from a field of 2 or 3 pictures and exchange it with a communication partner to label an object/action, request an object/action, or answer a question during a structured language activity with moderate verbal/visual prompts in 8/10 trials.
Hope these help! 🙂
We did this activity this morning and it was a HUGE hit!! The kids loved it and did a great job! Do you have a packet of visual recipes? We try to cook every Friday and I love your layout of recipes and worksheets:).
Yum! Happy you liked it! I have some freebies on here: https://theautismhelper.com/tag/cooking/ and some products:
