Cooking with Children

Chocolate chip drops

These are an ideal gift for children to make when a visit to Granny is imminent, and they are only too happy to help eat them up...

Peppermint Creams

These are simply delicious and inexpensive to make. They require no cooking and could be made safely by children...

Cornflake crunchies

Children enjoy making these. Use the other half egg in scrambled egg or to glaze a pastry pie...

Caramel Crispies

My daughter’s favourite! These would make a nice present...

No Cook Fudge

Children love to make this, and the only difficult part lies in persuading them to leave the fudge to harden overnight...

Summer fruit smoothie

Smoothies are not as sweet as milkshakes and are a little healthier too. If you like yours sweeter, just add more icing sugar. To enjoy this smoothie all year round try it with frozen berries.
