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
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.
Welcome to this weeks kids in the kitchen. Ours almost went pear shaped this week when I had two very naughty children get a little over excited while making chocolate shortbread. More about that later.
If you’d like to know more about Kids in the Kitchen it has it’s very own page here. The rules are simple though, just do some cooking with your kids, post about it and link it up. Short or long, old or new, I really don’t mind.
Chocolate Shortbread Hearts.
I’m a big fan of shortbread but I’ve not tried making chocolate shortbread before. I’ll definitely be making it again though. Because it was Valentines Day we decided to make our shortbread into little heart shapes using a chocolate mould.
260g plain flour
100g caster sugar
40g cocoa powder
We put the the flour, sugar and cocoa powder in a large bowl and mixed it around.
We chopped the butter into cubes and then rubbed it into the flour until it became a sticky dough
We pressed the mixture into the mould to bake in the oven at 180C or gas mark 4 for 15 minutes.
Everything was going well but then my little monkeys got a little over excited and began making a terrible mess all over the table with the mixture, which then spread to the floor. I stopped them and sent them to wash their hands and on return I got them helping to clean up their mess. I don’t know what got into them but once they had calmed down and cleaned up they were happy to enjoy the finished biscuits. They are usually quite co-operative in the kitchen, but I guess we all have our ‘off” days. Maybe I’ll still keep cooking with them.
