3 Simple And Fun Christmas Recipes to Try Out With Your Kids

The Christmas vibes are here and you need to prep your kitchen to make all the tasty Christmas treats. And what better way to bond with your kids than cooking some kid-friendly delicacies with them? Here are some tasty recipes to satiate your sweet tooth and have a fun time in the kitchen with your kids.

Fun Christmas treats to make with toddlers

1. Christmas Tree Brownies

These cute Christmas Tree Brownies will light up your child’s face like anything. You need to set the stage by preheating your oven to around 180°C. Now, line a cake tin with baking powder.

Keep it aside and grab a bowl. Beat some sugar and eggs to make them light and fluffy. You could also ask your kid to help with this. They might create a bit of mess doing this, but honestly who cares!

Now, add some flour, butter, vanilla, and cocoa powder to the bowl. Again, your little one could pass the ingredients to you. Beat them until they all come together. Then pour this batter into the cake tin.

Wait for about 25 minutes as the cake gets baked. Once done, cool the cake and make wedge-shaped slices out of it. Now, you and the kids can pipe out some green icing on the cake slices to make them look like Christmas trees.

Decorate them further with sprinkles, stars, and pearls. And don’t forget to stick in a rice cracker at the bottom to make the tree stump.

2. Reindeer Cookies

Christmas isn’t complete without reindeers, right? So, let’s make some chocolate reindeer cookies with the toddlers. First, you need to grab a bowl and whisk some flour, salt, and baking soda.

Take a saucepan and place some butter, water, and brown sugar in it. Stir it on low flame until the butter melts. Remove from the flame and add some chocolate chips into the mixture. Now, add this into the flour batter along with some eggs and vanilla extract. Stir them all until combined well.

Let it rest and meanwhile preheat the oven to 350°C. Make small dough balls and place them on a tray lined with a greased baking sheet. Flatten the dough balls and bake them for 12 to 14 minutes.

Now, put your kids to service and ask them to coat the cookies with chocolate. Then, make reindeer faces on them with the help of candy eyes, peanut butter cup snouts, pretzel antlers, and M&M noses. For the final touch, pipe out the mouths of the reindeers.

3. Snowman Marshmallow Pop Sticks

What could be yummier than white chocolate and marshmallow? These snowman sticks are easy to make and delicious to devour. Start with melting white chocolate on a bowl placed over simmering water. Once done, stir it thoroughly with vegetable oil until its texture is smooth.

Now, take a skewer and push 3 marshmallows into it. Then, dip them in the chocolate until coated properly and drip off the excess.

After that, decorate the marshmallow sticks with M&Ms to make eyes, buttons, and nose. Lastly, make the snowman’s mouth with licorice.

Final Thoughts

Creating Christmas titbits with your kids could be a really fun activity to laugh, bond, and eat together. But, be careful while cooking with children. Make sure you do not allow your child near the stove, oven, or any sharp object. Allow them to do easy tasks like decorations and mixing. This way they will be able to enjoy the tasty recipes without hurting themselves.
