Ready, steady, cook.....(Make some more delicious chocolate-themed recipes).
Ready Steady Cook
We had great fun visiting 'Willa Wonka's Chocolate Factory' and making sweets at school. Here are a few more chocolate-themed recipes that you might want to make at home!
Following instructions is a great way to practise both your reading and comprehension skills. You need to check you have read the words properly, remember what you have read and understand what the words mean. So what are you waiting for? Find a recipe and get cooking!
All recipes are nut free and can be made dairy free (alternative ingredients are listed alongside anything where dairy would be used). Instructions to melt butter/chocolate are for the microwave but if you do not have one/would prefer to melt using the stove-top bain-marie method then fell free to adapt this section of the recipe.
Chocolate Cake Pops
Delicious cake and buttercream balls on sticks covered in melted chocolate and hand decorated with your choice of topping!
Mayan Hot Chocolate
Hot Chocolate - but not as you know it! The Mayans were one of the first civilisations to enjoy this spiced chocolate drink. After tasting it, Europeans brought the ingredients back to Europe and over the years it has evolved into the drink we recognise today. See how hot chocolate used to taste....
Mini-Mississippi Mud Pies
A dessert popular in America - especially around the southern states. With a chocolate biscuit base, chocolate and cream filling and topped with whipped cream and grated chocolate you can see why it is enjoyed all over the world.
