Easter Bunnies Little Helper

Saturday, 19 April 2014

So as its Easter, I thought I'd share my first recipe on littlelondongirl.co.uk, its quite a tough one so I recommend you grab a little person to help. This little one is always my first choice - my brother! When I'm back in the Shire for the weekend, we always get our aprons on to do some baking. Sadly they don't do a Gruffalo apron in my size. 

Ingredients:
Your favourite chocolate - we like Cadbury's Dairy Milk
Cornflakes
Cupcake cases
Mini eggs
Little chicks or Easter bunnies 

First step, get your little helper to break the chocolate into small pieces. You need to keep an eye on them at this stage as chocolate does tend to go missing. 


Next its the grown ups job (but as mum was away for the day I had to do it myself) - melting the chocolate. Boil some water on the hob and place the glass bowl on top making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water. 



Lots of stirring until all the chocolate chunks have melted. 


Get your little helper to start chucking handfuls of cornflakes into the bowl whilst you keep mixing.
 Warning: if your little person is as messy as mine then the cornflakes will end up everywhere!


Once all cornflakes are covered in chocolate start spooning the mixture into the cupcake cases. Get the little one involved if you want the spoon to be licked clean after filling each case. Clearly we are very hygienic so we did not do this till the end, honest!


Here's the cute decorations for our cakes. 


Pour all the decorations on a plate and leave your little helper to get creative.This is their time to shine!



Our cakes are very egg heavy and don't they look great. No eating allowed until Easter Sunday!



As you can see this recipe is a tough one, but give it a go!


We were in a crafty mood so the fun didn't stop there......oh no! Next we made this Easter basket which took ages and I got quite protective of it so it was mostly my handy work so the little bro got bored and played with his lego instead. Its pretty impressive, right!?


I did let him do this own thing with painting though. It started off very neat....


Then he went all modern art on me and mixed the whole lot together. 


We had a great day together, its always fun being 4! Tomorrow will be all about Easter egg hunts, chocolate and family time. We'll be making some amazing Easter bunny bread rolls to go with our lamb casserole so look out for a pic on twitter. 


Happy Easter!
