When you are thinking about party food ideas for the kids, it is advisable to keep it simple and easy. It is even better if you can find a recipe that the kids can help you make. This recipe is not only easy but also super friendly on your party budget, with very few ingredients required.
Honey Joys are perfect as cute Easter desserts due to their ease in preparation and also because they taste delicious. They are crispy and sticky and are an absolute hit with the kids. You will find that the big kids love them too!
Most of the time Easter desserts are based around chocolate, so these cute Easter desserts throw something a little different into the mix yet still satisfy the sweet tooth.
Make the honey joys into small baskets, then nestle some chocolate eggs or jelly beans into the centre. They will look gorgeous on any Easter dessert table…..if they stay there long enough!
These honey will take you no time at all to make and are especially great if you are looking for a last minute idea. Follow the recipe below and have the kids help you for some added fun.
Ingredients you will need:
♥ 90g butter or margarine
♥ 1/3 cup sugar
♥ 1 tablespoon honey
♥ 4 cups cornflakes or rice crispies
♥ Cadbury mini eggs or other Easter treats
How to make these Honey Joys:
1. Preheat oven to 150C
2. Melt butter, sugar and honey together in a saucepan until frothy
3. Add the cornflakes or rice crispies and mix well
4. Spoon mixture into patty cases, leaving a well in the centre for Easter chocolates.
5. Bake for 10 minutes then cool. Once cool, add the chocolates or jelly beans.
If you would prefer to keep with the chocolate theme over Easter, then you could make these same treats but make them as chocolate crackles rather than honey joys. You can find the chocolate crackle recipe here.
