    These sweet treats will brighten any day of the week, but we think they’re extra-special on Mother’s Day. It’s a great opportunity for your child to hone their cooking skills too – choosing their own recipes, getting the ingredients together and then making the treats.

    Included on the list of these Mother’s Day recipes are cake pops (a fun twist on classic Mother’s Day cakes), cheesecake and flapjacks. Plus many more recipes, perfect for an exciting day in the kitchen treating Mum.

    Adult supervision: The only heat needed in the majority of these recipes is to melt chocolate. This can be done in the microwave and cooled before the kids use it, so you don’t need to worry about them burning themselves.

    We love the no-bake cheesecakes, which are especially great to make with the kids. For a special twist, why not try the lemon and lime ginger crunch recipe pictured above?? Get them to crush the biscuits (they’ll love this bit!), then whip the simple condensed milk and cream topping. They can decorate as they wish once it’s set.
