It needs to be delicious, obviously.
But preferably quick to make and not requiring more than two bowls, max.
It should probably have chocolate in it, because if it doesn't I'll end up scouring the kitchen for something else that does.
It should have some sort of vaguely redeeming healthiness about it, so that I don't feel too bad about making it (and eating it).
But if it's too healthy, then it's not going to qualify as a) delicious or b) chocolatey.
If it's too healthy, or lacks chocolate, the children will not eat it.
But if it's too delicious the children will fight over it and I'll regret making it at all.
I could make it and hide it from them, but that requires tricky logistics.
And if I make it and hide it from them I'll end up eating it all, which won't be good for me.
It's going to be pumpkin muffins (with chocolate chips) again, isn't it?
I suppose there are worse things.
