It’s holidays, so we’ve got the time to round up the children and have a family baking session. We found the recipes that kids of all ages can accomplish – some harder than others – to get into the festive spirit.
Try out these treats and watch their eyes widen with delight as they see their cookies rising or their masterpiece coming together. We’re not going to lie – the cleaning up can be a bit of a mission, but if you let the kids lick out the bowls, you’re halfway there!
Look, we have never really been able to hide it, but we love unicorns, so when we found this recipe for unicorn white chocolate bark, we were super excited.
Candy cane delight
Jamie Oliver has five kids, so if he says a recipe is kiddy friendly, you know he’s talking from experience. (Although… he might be a bit of a better teacher in the kitchen than we are.) His candy cane chocolate cookies have a little burst of mint and are decorated with crushed candy canes. He hangs his on the tree, but somehow we don’t think ours will hang around long enough to make it to the tree, let alone stay there!
Chewy and crunchy
If you need a less intimidating option, then Nigella Lawson’s marshmallow crispy squares are for you.
