Kids in the Kitchen – Choco Leibniz Chocolate Shortbread

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen, this week I’m trying something different, I’ve made a video of the Little Man cooking this weeks recipe. I had to make a video to take part in the Bahlsen Bake Off Challenge and we enjoyed it so much I’ve decided to do more! Of course we are still enjoying the Bahlsen recipes, they really are yummy and not too difficult to make.

First though, as always, I’d like to say thank you to last weeks contributors to my linky.
We have two delicious recipes from the children at the Brick Castle, Cheese and Marmite Helter- Skelters and Cat’s Biscuits. 
Miss T from The Beesley Buzz has also made two yummy recipes, Tuna Pasta Bake and Spring Rolls

I love reading your recipes and how your children got on with making them. I also love to share them on Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ so please do join in. I will also keep mentioning those that do here on my blog.

Choco Leibniz Chocolate Shortbread

85g golden caster sugar
200g plain flour
2tbs cocoa powder
100g Choco Leibniz biscuits, crushed

Slice the dough into rounds and put on a baking tray

Here is how my little man got on:

 Now it’s your turn, please come and share your recipes that you have made with your kids help and link up to my linky.

    Priceless, Joe is a little star, and looks like a tidy worker too, moving the pestle and mortar out of the way before stirring the mix.

    He did a great job. He's so confident in the kitchen, it's lovely to see. I'm certain all 3 of your children will be excellent cooks when they're older 🙂

    That looks like a great straight forward recipe to make. Your little man is soooo cute – He's a real little expert in the kitchen – he knew just how to sift the flour and he was brilliant measuring the ingredients and adding them. I especially loved the licking the spoon bit at the end! Well done little man. Probably won't find time to link up this evening but Miss T has been doing lots of cooking so hopefully will join in next week. Will pop over to see the other recipes linked up though xxx
