Looking to spoil a mum? Help your little munchkins whip up something seriously special this Mother's Day.
Nothing beats a homemade gift when it comes to Mother's Day and you'll be surprised at what the smallest of hands can help whip up. When the mini pinnies have been bunged in the wash, let the kids loose with ribbons, edible glitter and homemade gift cards. You will definitely win points for bravery even if your creations don't turn out picture perfect.
These simple yet scrumptious chocolate bites make a present kids can be proud of. Carefully melt the white, dark and milk chocolate, then let the children take over, swirling to create a marbled effect and decorating with pretzels.
Kids will love shaping, rolling and dipping these nutty sweets in melted chocolate - just make sure that the lid is firmly on the food processor to avoid decorating the walls with any stray ingredients!
Kids are bound to love smashing up pretzels with a rolling pin (though these might need to be made in advance if a lie-in is on the cards). This recipe is super-simple but the results are scrumptious.
Peppermint candy biscuits
These cute candy-filled biscuits are sure to melt a few hearts, place them in a box with some pretty coloured tissue for the perfect present.
Help the kids make the truffles then let them loose with the rolling and decorating. Get creative with toppings like crushed pistachio nuts, lightly toasted desiccated coconut, orange zest and cocoa powder for maximum wow factor.
These beautiful little squares couldn't be simpler to make and look really special. Decorate with raspberry flakes, pecans, candied peel and a swirl of melted chocolate - the kids might even let you take a turn as chocolatier too.
Feeling under fire? Hardly any cooking is required for these moreish sweets, and kids can get completely stuck in - just chop some dried fruits, crush some biscuits and mix them into melted white chocolate and butter. Your main job will be keeping the spoon lickers at bay.
