Hi Guys,

Today I have cooked up a storm in the kitchen and brought you three easy kid friendly recipes that I personally think are GREAT for Christmas!

The three things I have made are

  1. Marshmallow Rice Bubble Slice
  2. Christmas Tree Brownies
  3. Coconut Ice

Marshmallow Rice Bubble Slice!

I got the measurements from this website: http://www.foodtolove.com.au/recipes/marshmallow-rice-bubble-slice-30558 before making a few adjustments

Instructions:

Ingredients

  • 250g Marshmallows
  • 90g Unsalted Butter (coarsely chopped)
  • 4 cups/140g Rice Bubbles
  • 55g White Chocolate Drops
  • 100g Glacé Cherries (halved or quartered)

Method

  1. Grease a 20cm x 30cm rectangular pan, line the base and sides with baking paper, extending paper over the sides.
  2. Combine marshmallows and butter in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until smooth.

 

3. Place rice bubbles, white chocolate drops and half the glacé cherries in a large bowl. Add marshmallow mixture, mix well. After wetting your hands, press mixture firmly into the pan, then press the remaining glacé cherries into the top. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm before cutting.

 

 

Christmas Tree Brownies

I came up with my own recipe after seeing a picture on Pinterest. Later found out it was first created on this website: http://onelittleproject.com/christmas-tree-brownies/ I got my icing recipe from this website: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/38244/basic+icing

Instructions

Ingredients

  • Ingredients for your preferred Brownie recipe (packet mixes are fine (If you don’t have a fav recipe click on the picture to the left for my top 2!)
  •  Candy Canes
  • Sprinkles

For Icing (you can just tint ready made icing if you prefer!)

  • 1 1/2 cups of Icing Sugar Mixture (Sifted)
  • 25g butter (softened)
  • 1 tbs and a little bit milk or water
  • Few drops of  green Food Colouring

Method

  1. Make your preferred brownie recipe
  2. Once it is cool, cut it into triangles as shown below
  3. Unwrap the candy canes, and use a sharp knife to gently cut/break the candy canes into 1.5″ long pieces.

4. Press one end of the candy cane into the bottom of the brownie triangles.

5. Spoon out approximately ½ of the tub of icing into a bowl.

6.Add green food colouring until you’re happy with the colour.

7. Spoon the green icing into a zip lock bag.

8. Seal the bag and cut off a small corner of the bag with sharp scissors.

9. Starting at the top of the brownie triangles, gently squeeze out the icing in a curvy zigzag as you go down the tree.

10. Add some Christmas sprinkles and a small star sprinkle at the top.

 

 

Coconut Ice

I got my recipe from The Australian Women Weekly’s Old Fashioned Favourites Cookbook. I made several edits to incorporate a third coloured layer.

Instructions

  • 2 1/2 cups / 225g coconut

Method

  1. Line a deep 19cm square cake pan with baking paper
  2. Sift icing sugar into a large bowl

 

3. Stir in coconut then milk and egg white, stir until well combined

4.Press a third of the mixture into your prepared pan

5. Separate half the remaining mixture into another bowl then tint the mixture in one bowl red and the other green

 

6. Press one of the bowls content evenly over the first layer.

7. Repeat step 6 with the remaining bowl of tinted mixture.

8. Cover and refrigerate several hours before cutting.
