Christmas is a great time to get creative when making treats either with or for the kids. And that includes the big kids too! The best thing is there is something to suit everyone’s skill, time and patience (and sometimes the simplest of recipes can be the most impressive!) Check out the links below for some great ideas.
For more inspiration, make sure you check out our Christmas baking with kids Pinterest board.
Reindeers are always popular at Christmas time and these ones are super cute. Chocolate, caramel, googly eyes… what more could you want in a Christmas treat?
Reindeers again (told you they were popular), but these ones turn boring sugar cookies into something cute with just a few lines and smartie. These are a great option for group presents, really simple to put together but really effective too. Save even more time by buying the biscuit bases ready made.
For those who are more adventurous (and have a bit more time on your hands), these iced Christmas trees are ah-maz-ing. Make sure you practice your piping skills before you get started though.
These are a simpler version of the Christmas trees. Brownies are super easy to put together, and are only made better with icing. The kids will love adding the bauble decorations – and the best bit is they can’t get it wrong!
These biscuits always remind me of Christmas lights because as a child we made sure the stained glass ornaments had a light bulb sitting behind it when we decorated the tree. These are a lot simpler than they seem (but no-one needs to know that).
Who doesn’t like cupcakes, especially layered red and green cupcakes loaded with icing?
