How to make your own wagon wheels!
Although both of my children can happily cook a cake and ice it on their own and independently bake semi-complicated dishes, sometimes when they ask to cook I like to keep it simple. Simple means less mess for them to clean up and fast action on a completed recipe.
So, I thought I'd share my easy peasy wagon wheels. They're a big hit here and super fast for children to make.
♥ Round biscuits - we used plain Marie biscuits by Arnotts
♥ Strawberry or raspberry jam
♥ You'll also need a micowave!
Step 1: Spread the biscuit with jam and pop a marshmellow in the centre.
Step 2: Pop the marshmellow and biscuit in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. You'll need to watch the marshmellow carefully - as it starts to squish and melt, remove it from the microwave quickly and pop the top biscuit on.
Step 3: Melt some chocolate and spread over the top of the biscuit. When it's dry, flip over and coat the other side with chocolate. Ta-da! Easy peasy wagon wheels! For the fuss-pots of the family that don't like jam (we have two of those in our family) just omit the jam.
Here are some more of my easy peasy favourites for little ones to make:
♥ Fairy bread
♥ Icy poles - chop us some fruit to add in
♥ Make your own pizza
♥ Toasted sandwiches
♥ Banana split - banana sliced in half with ice cream, nuts and topping.
Don't forget to pop over to Tamar's blog to see her recipes for today. I'll be back later on this evening with a sneak peek for tomorrow :)
