HOMEMADE ICE CREAM

I suspect it’s the peppermint crisps, the crunchie bars or whatever chocolate treat you feel like adding that will be the main appeal of this ice cream for the kids.  Even so it’s something they can make themselves, although I doubt all 3 bars will make it into the mix.

VEGEMITE CHICKEN BITES

Inspired by my 9 year old granddaughter, who is cooking up a storm while isolated at home, this week I looked for recipes that kids would enjoy cooking.  This one needs some peeling, some grating and some rolling – all easy things to do and it includes vegemite, so I thought that might be an added bonus……

FLOWING CHOCOLATE CARAMELS

This is an old 1950s (or thereabouts) recipe for chocolate covered caramel balls.  With the schools shutting down for an extended time it could be a project for the kids.  Obviously, they’ll need supervision with cooking the tin of condensed milk, but the rolling out of the balls could be a fun and messy job for them.

CHOCOLATE ALMOND CAKE

I decided this week to hunt out recipes from Mum’s collection that you could make without flour, pasta or rice, which sadly panic buying wiped off the supermarket shelves last week.  I found this Chocolate Almond Cake, it’s heavy on eggs, but if you have enough to make it I reckon it will cheer the family up.
