  1. Ask a grown-up to tear off some big sheets of baking parchment. Draw around a glass or saucer with a pencil to make big button shapes. Turn the paper over.

  2. Spoon a blob of chocolate into the middle of each circle and use a paint brush to spread it to the edges of the circle. Don’t worry if it isn’t neat.

  3. Decorate each button with sprinkles, sweets or blobs of other coloured chocolate.

  4. Leave the buttons to cool and set really hard, in the fridge if the room is hot. Once they are hard, peel them off the paper carefully and wrap up or eat.

It's the second year running that my 5-year-old son and I have made these for his teachers at school, as a thank you gift. They have gone down a treat! My 2-year-old daughter also enjoyed getting involved, but she was mainly keen on eating the mini marshmallows! :)
