When it comes to snacks whether it is in the lunch box or throughout the day, fruit is always a great go to in our home but sometimes it is nice to have something different and keeping it healthy too! So, recently we experimented and came up with a new favourite in our home and hopefully yours too!
As we all know, Santa has a lot of houses to visit on Christmas Eve across the world and in each house there is always a little treat for him to enjoy! With treats varying from chocolate chip cookies to mince pies, wouldn't it be nice to give Santa a healthy option in your home to help boost his energy as he travels from house to house?
Below is a simple recipe shared with me by The Cool Food School that you can do yourself and the great thing is, there is no need for any baking so they are ready in no time (and some extras for you to do a taste test!)
I love to make biscuits and one of my favourites to make over the festive season are gingerbread biscuits. Today, I would like to share with you a simple recipe I found on Netmums and together for Day 8 of #DarcysAdventFun I would like to make these with you to see how we get on!
While Halloween is now long over, it is still visible in our home with the number of treats left behind even after a lot were retreated on the night! While some will be kept for Friday treats in school, Darcy thought it would be nice to have some baking fun like we did with some other recipes earlier this year which you can try here and here.
After Darcy rummaged through the treats he came up with a couple of recipes. One recipe we tried but it is still in need of some tweaking before we share it with you but this recipe is one that we will continue to make! It is already our second time to make it this week and it is so easy and simple to do!
There's nothing like looking through cookbooks for baking inspiration on a rainy day and when Darcy spotted this recipe it was a rummage through the cupboards to see what ingredients were there to make a batch of cookies. With most of the ingredients on hand, Darcy made a twist on the recipe and created the recipe below.
Has your home been invaded by lots of Easter Eggs today? Are you already wondering what to do with them all?
These brownies created by Darcy, were inspired by an Odlums recipe he saw. With some of the ingredients he required missing, Darcy came up with the recipe below and it's quite delicious.
There is nothing like combining some ingredients to make a tasty treat and that is just what Darcy did when he made his "Darcy Mess"
What Darcy used!
- Meringue nest
- Melted Chocolate
- chocolate chip cookies
With the New Year nearly upon us, I thought this would be a great recipe to help clear out the cupboards of the last of the biscuits and chocolates and I'm sure my friend Karen where I got the recipe from would agree that the recipe is kind in that it can me tweaked to do so.
Recently I was looking for some treats to make with Logan and Elise and their friends and when I saw this moreish recipe on Karen's blog Yankee Doodle Paddy I knew I had to make it! These s'mores are so simple to make and more importantly they are DELICIOUS! You'll see that Darcy had no problem in helping too and tucking into some when they were ready!!
