Toddler Baking Ideas

8:37 am

Myself and the boys have been busy trying to spend as little money as possible whilst still having fun. One thing we love to do is bake, Alfie is at that age where he can really do most of it and well..... Archie is the supervisor/chief bowl licker! It's also really cheap because we have most of the ingredients all ready.

Below I have list a few easy things you can make with your littles ones, that won't break the bank and still provide you both with a fun activity.


These are super easy to make and the boys love to get messy mixing everything and then putting it all in the cases.
The good thing with cupcakes is that you can be as creative as you like!

Millionaire Shortbread 

This was a super quick recipe and there was no baking required! The only thing is that you do need to  do is wait for the shortbread and chocolate to set, we watched a movie in-between to pass the time! 

Chocolate Eggs 

I brought this mould one easter and use it occasional to make the boys little chocolate treats. 
I have my eye on some Disney ones so we can make some cute Mickey Mouse chocolates! 


We love to make these chocolate ones with white chocolate chunks inside. Alfie loves making these as he can get his hands messy in the bowl!  

Rice Krispy Squares 

This is my childhood in one! These were so popular, I remember them being in every school cake sale or baking class. 
You can make them into squares or in cupcake cakes, you can ombre them, you can drizzle chocolate on them, cover them in sprinkles! There are so many combinations!

Angel Delight Mini Flan's 

Probably one of the quickest recipes and no baking required. 
Just buy some mini flan cases, make some angel delight and add to the flan cases, chop a couple strawberries up and sprinkle some chocolate flake over the top. 
A yummy treat made in minutes!

 Jam Tarts 

Yummy jam tarts that can be made with a variety of flavouring. All we did for this was cut out circles from the puff pastry using Archie's bottle top and placed them in a greased up cupcake tin. We then added a small teaspoon of strawberry jam and cooked until the pastry had risen and had turn golden. 

I hope this post was useful, what things do you and your children like to bake?
