Well it's a new month and a new linky so I'm really looking forward to see what you are up to in the kitchen with your kids this month. Please join in whenever you can, I'm happy for you to link up old or new posts and you don't have to include a recipe so long as you are showing your kids having fun in the kitchen. All posts get pinned on my Pinterest Board and I will also tweet them and give them a mention here on Kids in the Kitchen each week.
Follow Anne's board Kids In The Kitchen on Pinterest.
After our marshmallow disaster we decided to have some fun with chocolate. We made some mini eggs and chocolate bark. The ingredients are simple...chocolate and mini marshmallows.
We actually used Candy Melts because they come in lots of different colours and set quickly. Real chocolate does taste nicer though.
You can melt your chocolate in the microwave, but be careful, burnt chocolate is really not nice. I prefer to do it in a bowl over simmering water.
We used a mould for the mini eggs but the bark is really easy, you just pour the melted chocolate onto a baking tray and then add the marshmallows and mix it up. Try not to add the marshmallows when it's too hot though or they will melt.
The mini eggs in the mould, we decided to do all three colours
When the chocolate had set we removed the eggs from the mould and broke up the bark into pieces. Previously we'd been able to cut the chocolate with cookie cutters but the candy melt was too hard so we just broke it up.
The chocolate bark and eggs looked pretty when put in little gift bags tied with ribbon.
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
