We are living Easter spirit to the max; Crafts, decorations, egg hunt… and today we are making a colorful “eastery” treat, just on time to satisfy the kids sweet tooth and boost the festivities mood.
Very simple recipe for kids to make, doesn’t require skills or baking. You will need for almost (18-22) balls medium size
- 6 packs of oreo (24 pieces)
- 4 cubes kiri cheese
Roughly crush oreo and mix with kiri until u get a consistent batter. Let it rest in the fridge for half an hour before shaping it into balls.
Dip it in melted white chocolate, or color it with springy colors, using food color gel. Insert the bunny picks, and let it chill a bit in the fridge before serving.
If you can’t find the bunny picks, you can also use chicks, carrots, flowers, any item of spring theme, then you can color the balls accordingly.
No doubt, cooking with kids takes more time and effort, but for the many learning experiences you can embrace while your kids are in the kitchen, i encourage you to do it more often. Trust me the benefits to their development justify the extra efforts.

It’s the season to be jolly … I think it can be also it’s the season for serious chocolate lovers! When you say Christmas you think chocolate, they come together like best friends. Kids and adults indulge in all kinds of chocolate desserts with no guilt, it’s Christmas!
This is an easy kit kat chocolate dessert with lots of fun preparing it with your kids. Not just looking cute, but it tastes nice also.
You will need Kit Kat chocolate bars (the one of four parts), as many as you want, depending on how many piece you want, keeping in mind each one makes 2 to 3 trees.
White chocolate melt colored green.
Confetti and stars (made of sugar), you can also have any small sugar Christmas decoration, as cane, santa, snowmen….up to you.
Cut 2 or 3 triangles out of each Kit Kat bar, keep the trimmed edges to make the tree trunk. Place on parchment paper. Put the green chocolate melt in a ziplok bag and make a very tiny cut at to pipe the garlands. Sprinkle the confetti (and the decorations you find), and finally place the star.
PS: to attach the trunk to the tree put a little chocolate melt
Place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes before placing them on a tray, using a little chocolate melt that serves like glue to prevent the trees from falling. Sprinkle coconut powder to look like snow between the trees.
So cute to be eaten! Try it with your kids and have fun, these are the best moments spent with your kids especially during the magical Christmas season. Enjoy!

Edible art sounds really fun. When i told Nady that we are going to paint the bread he was really excited, i knew that my plans will work. Beside fun, the aim of this activity was to encourage Nady to have his dinner. And it worked 🙂
This edible paint is easy to make. All you need is milk and food coloring. Hand the clean brush (preferably new) to your kid with white bread slices and let him prepare his sandwich.
With this process art activity, the end result was fun too. Do you find difficulty to let your kid eat his sandwich? Try this creative and fun art activity, at least it worked for us, we added cheese and zatar and we all had dinner from Nady’s bread design.

This simple and quick recipe is packed with chocolate flavor just as your kid loves it! It’s a basic recipe every mom should share with her mini chefs!
You will need:
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder sifted
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- M&M for sprinkling on top
Mix all dry ingredients; flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Let your mini chef sift the cocoa powder.
In a separate bowl mix eggs, vanilla and oil then add them to the dry ingredients.
My son loves mixing! It is the best part for him, but don’t over mix, just the time to let all ingredients combined.
You can’t imagine how beneficial this exercise is, especially on the cognitive and motor skills. Click benefits of cooking with your kids to learn more about it.
Back to our delicious brownies, pour the batter in a greased baking dish (8×12”) and sprinkle the top with M&Ms.
Preheat oven (200°C) and bake for 20-25 mins or until skewer comes out clean.
You can add more M&Ms after baking, some might drown in! My mini chef suggestion!. Wait until is set to room temperature and cut. Get ready, by this time you will be asked thousand of times if it’s ready to be cut!
As i always say, the best part is when your kids taste the reward of their efforts. Now it’s time to pack some for the teacher in the nursery, friends and uncle to taste Nady’s chef d’oeuvre. He loves to share being proud of what he did!
I can assume it’s one of the best brownies i tasted. Crispy edges with chewy inside. Can’t get enough of it. It’s going to be the brownies recipe from now on!
Try it also with ice cream or chocolate sauce! Enjoy your time with your kids and have loads of educational fun !
