Fancy an easy and no-fuss bit of baking time with the kids, but can't be bothered with the mess and fuss of a full-blown cake mix extravaganza?
Fancy letting the kids indulge in their own creativity while you 'supervise' and get to eat the proceeds?
Why not try some Digestive Art?
You will need:
1 pack of cheap-ass digestive biscuits (the cheaper they are, the more you get in a pack, the more time that the kids will be 'creating' thus leaving you in peace to indulge in some 'you' time!)
1 pack of writing icing in quite a few colours
A bowl of melted chocolate (or 2 if you are feeling like some white chocolate and some milk chocolate!)
First, we put two marshmallows between two digestives and blipped them in the microwave for 10 whole seconds. This made the marshmallows nice and squishy, providing a nice sticky centre (and the kids feel like they are 'baking', ha ha!)
Next, I loaded my 'baked' goods onto a plate, laid down some tissue and let them loose with some melted in the microwave hot chocolate.
They dipped, and wrote with the icing and covered the biscuits in sprinkles.
|Busy, busy, busy!|
|Oh, the concentration!|
|Ok, I might have made one too - it was pretty fun!|
|M is for Mum! My biscuit!|
