This morning, we had great fun for our Christmas Cooking activity – making snowman skewers! We had Christmas music playing to get everyone into the Christmas spirit 😀
The idea was to combine all of our ingredients to then place on a skewer and decorate to look like snowmen… and whatever other ideas we could come up with!
The first thing we did was make our chocolate bliss balls so that we could place them in the fridge to set. They were a combination of dates, almond meal, walnuts, honey and cocoa with a pinch of salt and some vanilla essence. (It is a naturally gluten-free recipe so it suited our GF students too 🙂 )
These were all blitzed in the food processor and then hand-shaped by everyone. They were then finished by rolling them in desiccated coconut – the ‘snow’! 🙂
Once these were set, everyone began making their snow people – we even had an octopus! They used marshmallows, M&Ms, chocolate chips and jellies to mimic buttons, eyes, hats, scarves and anything else they could think of. It was a very fun activity, enjoyed by all and the best part – they were delicious!
Check out the final results! 😀
