Big Cook, Little Cook

I was thrilled to discover last week that we had won a competition on the lovely blog of A Small Hand in Mine. Our prize was a Kellogg's Rice Krispies Goodie Bag Giveaway! I was ever so excited, and as much as I tried to enthuse The Boy, he seemed to have a little difficulty joining in!

When it arrived look at what was in it:

Yum, scrum, in our tums!

I could put it off no longer, the trauma that I anticipated with cooking with The Boy was going to have to happen.

Only it didn't. Which quite frankly is marvellous. He was a really good boy, actually managing to stand on the chair for a start (last time we tried, he wouldn't because we'd taught him not to stand on chairs, d'oh!) and following all of mummy's instructions. I know it wasn't 'proper' cooking because there was no eggs (bleugh) or baking in the over involved but he had such fun doing it. What's more is after he'd done all the cooking he had a bonus play of 'washing up', clever mummy!

I can't tell you the exact recipe because we made it up as we went along. It contained something along the lines of:

  • a melted down chocolate bunny (blitzed in the microwave for 30 seconds, stirred, then 20 seconds)
  • three marshmallows (melted in with the chocolate, I'd probably do one or two next time)
  • a dash of milk (to thin it out)
  • a squeeze of golden syrup
  • three shakes of the Rice Krispies box
  • bags and bags of fun.

Thank you to A Small Hand in Mine and Kellogg's.

    Wow looks like you both had bags of fun! Looks like the boy enjoyed doing the dishes afterwards as much as 'baking'! Hope the fruits of your labour were tasty! 🙂

    great photos! I love the one of him in his hat & apron, he's a pro at this cooking & washing up now, need to get him to do some cooking with Jack, they would make a great team licking their spoons!

    Hi there,
    I was hoping to use the lovely photos of your little one making Rice Krispies on the netmums site. (I work for the brand team here at kelloggs). Would that be possible? I would of course send you some Rice Krispies as a thank you!
    Kind Regards,
