This was the birthday bake of request from my youngest, Fin, just recently. Lots of you asked for the recipe so of course here it is. Whilst not strictly baking, I’m sure you’ll forgive me! I’m including instructions to make the toffee layer from sugar/butter and cream so you don’t have to use condensed milk if you don’t want to.
Always good to have a quick rainy afternoon activity so here’s my top 3 recipes for the kids to have a crack at!

Chocolate Chip Cookies – who’d say no to one of these?
I know I’ve done flapjack before but this one is a bit different, its a thick buttery fudgy type bar flapjack, like you might pick up when you’re out and about. Great big slabs of flapjack with a good old layer of chocolate on the top.
Lots of fun, bright and breezy and no complicated bits and pieces required. The only trouble is they can get eaten up faster than you can make them!
They can be done with all sorts of sweeties – I’ve used Smarties here, I ate the skittles before I had chance to use them
You will need:
Well once again it’s not quite baking but they are sweet treats, anyone would think my oven is broken! (Don’t worry it isn’t)
The boys love them, hey I love them too – there’s all sorts you can do with them.
Just a bit of fun with the children – these meringues will not win any prizes in the taste stakes but rate highly in amazement factor! The boys have loved doing these this holiday, they’re so quick and easy. I never knew you could do such a thing until a chance conversation with the lovely ladies at Baking Hot Celebrations (and if you’re not sure who I’m talking about head on over and have a peek).
