Welcome to #CookBlogShare Week #24
#CookBlogShare is a weekly link party where we share recipes, comment on each other’s cooking creations and generally immerse ourselves in the world of gastronomy! If you’ve got a recipe this is the place to show it off!
I have the pleasure of co-hosting this link party together with 2 fantastic bloggers and each of us gets to host about once a month. The other co-hosts are: Eb@Easy Peasy Foodie and Jacqui@Recipes Made Easy.
#CookBlogShare is also occasionally guest hosted. Next week it will be hosted by Rebecca from Glutarama.
If you are new to this link party please take a moment to read the guidelines below. Joining is very simple and you are welcome to share your old and new recipes (there is no specific theme and all recipes are welcome).
Thank you to everyone who shared their recipe with us last week.
Chocolate recipes for kids
I was initially planning to just feature chocolate recipes. But when I had a closer look at each one of them I realised they all had another thing in common – they were all perfect chocolate recipes for kids!
All 4 recipes are very easy to make and one of them had actually been made with kids. Helen from Cooking with My Kids involves her children in the kitchen quite a lot and her featured chocolate cookies recipe has been made with the help of her little ones.
So Helen, you’ve inspired this week’s features!
I also had a look at my own recipes and realised that I too have a couple that would definitely work as chocolate recipes for kids.
One of them is this healthy chocolate cookies recipe with hazelnuts. They are wheat free, so make a great gluten free snack that’s also low in sugar and fat. You might want to supervise the step that involves using an electric mixer but the kids will be able to handle the weighing of ingredients, stirring and making the cookies.
Another easy, fun and delicious recipe that’s perfect to make with children is my healthy chocolate granola recipe with coconut. This is a one-bowl recipe that simply involves combining all the ingredients and spreading the mixture on top of a tray before popping in the oven.
Children will be so proud they’ve created this delicious homemade granola themselves they’ll never want to eat sugary shop bought granola again!

Check out this week’s features for more chocolate recipe ideas you can make with your children!
The features: 4 chocolate recipes for kids
These delicious chocolate fork biscuits from Helen at Cooking with My Kids are so easy to make even very young children can help out. These biscuits contain only 4 ingredients, which are simply combined using a spoon to form a soft dough. Children will love to form little dough balls, making a fork shape in each one and baking the biscuits!
These gorgeous homemade chocolate hobnobs from Donna Dundas are also made using a handful of ingredients. Kids will love to get their hands dirty, stir the ingredients together, form the cookies, not to mention dipping them in the melted chocolate at the end! These hobnobs make a fantastic easy lunchbox idea too.
This zesty delicious chocolate lime cake from Tin and Thyme is perfect to make with older kids. It’s very quick and easy to put together but does involve cracking the eggs and handling an electric mixer. I just love the combination of sweet and zesty in this cake and pairing chocolate with lime is simply genius! The salted chocolate shavings over the top add a fantastic flavour twist to this cake. This chocolate cake oozes character!
Who wouldn’t want to sink their teeth into these gorgeous chocolate crinkle cookies – brownie-like in the middle and crispy on the outside? I definitely would! These chocolate cookies from Kate from Gluten Free Alchemist are also pretty easy to make, even if they don’t look it. You will only need a large bowl and silicone spoon. The best bit is coating the cookies in the icing sugar just before popping in the oven to create the lovely cracks! Another fantastic recipe to make with older kids.
