January 27th is Family Literacy Day here in Canada, a chance for families from coast to coast to reflect on the importance of learning together as a family. ABC Life Literacy Canada is marking the occasion by encouraging families to enjoy at least 15 minutes of fun learning together every day. According to the organization’s website, “Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.” You’ll find some fun 15-minute learning ideas over on their site.

ABC Life Literacy Canada also offers a downloadable “Journey to Learning Passport” with fun ideas for learning at home and in your community. One of the activities on the passport is to follow a recipe together, and we have just the one for such an occasion—a batch of delicious, chocolateyRead-to-Me Brownies. This recipe involves just 10 minutes of prep and is a great one for junior chefs to help with.

What you’ll need:
• Unsalted butter
• Unsweetened cocoa powder
• Eggs
• Brown sugar
• Flour
• Mini marshmallows

You can find the full recipe for Read-to-Me Brownies here. And if you’re looking for a good book to cozy up with while you enjoy your treat, we’ve rounded up 101 great reads for the whole family:
