My kids like to make holiday gifts for a few special people in their lives, and while I would definitely consider myself a crafty person, weekend hockey keeps me from committing to making Grandpa a wooden bird feeder or Aunt Beth a Pollock-esque painting. Instead, I turn to my kitchen cupboards and cookbooks and let the kids pick out something quick and easy that we can package up prettily and hand out to multiple people.
Jackson (my youngest), took this recipe straight from the December issue of Canadian Living. ‘Easy’ and ‘fudge’ are two words that speak loudly to him, and I suggested that we replace the walnuts in the recipe with graham crackers and marshmallows for a more kid-friendly concoction. He accepted the challenge and we successfully made this no-bake sweet in less time than it would’ve taken me to go to the store to buy some fudge.
Using only seven ingredients, I’m confident that children of reading age could likely make this recipe themselves, with only a little help from a supervising parent. I’d suggest opening the can of milk for them, and overseeing the melting of the chocolate, but other than that, I’m sure your little chefs could make a batch of this with only minimal assistance.
Do your kids ever make edible gifts for loved ones?
