Mom and me – simple recipes to make with your kids
Do you love to bake but find it a challenge to involve your kids? Baking can be a bonding time for you and your little one, especially if you use the right recipes. Here are some great simple recipes to get your kids involved in your favourite activity.
Turn a simple cookie base into a work of art by icing cookie shapes, taking it to the next level. Make a simple royal icing in multiple colours and let your kid’s imaginations run wild. From Easter eggs to numbers and letters, there is a whole world of creativity waiting to be unlocked with this activity.
You don’t have to use the stove or oven to make tasty treats with your kids. The microwave is the perfect tool for a simple yet delicious fudge so that the whole family can get involved – no matter how young or old. It’s as simple as 1-2-3 ingredients.
Rice crispy treats
Rice crispy treats are the ultimate level of tasty but let’s be honest, they are totally overdone. Take this classic, all-ages recipe to the next level by adding something different. Perhaps add melted chocolate and chopped cherries to make a crackle treat of epic proportions. Or turn it into a celebration cupcake loaded with lashings of chocolate whipped cream, melted chocolate or glace cherries – talk about elevating a classic recipe.
No cake and candy day would be complete without the obligatory coconut ice to add to the mix. The iconic pink and white layered sweet is the perfect treat to adorn the colourful tray of a bake sale. Not to mention the recipe is super simple to make with kids of varying ages.
Fondue is not just about the food but also about the experience. However, not too many kids are keen to dive into a melted pot of strong cheese. So, make this food experience more kid-friendly by making a chocolate fondue instead. Opt for dippers such as meringues, strawberries, marshmallows and even cake cubes. You can use your favourite vanilla cake recipe to turn a chocolate sauce into a fondue experience your kids will never forget.
It’s time to get your kids involved in your favourite activity. These recipes are the perfect start to a long and prolific baking project—three cheers for bonding with your kids while participating in your favourite experience
