        I am getting my daughter an easy bake oven for Christmas and I found this site when looking for inexpensive mixes. I'm THRILLED! But I have a question about this recipe. I love that it makes up several mixes but how do you mix up the individual batches? I'm assuming butter but I'm not sure. thx.
