10 No Bake Treats Kids Can Make Themselves
Kids these days are very independent. They want to prove that they can do certain things themselves such as riding a bike unassisted or preparing their food.
Is your child like one? Do you let her make her own food? If that’s the case, then you will love these 10 no bake treats that your kid can make. These are super easy recipes that I am sure your child can do.
I’ve shared many desserts like cake pops, but I can assure you these 10 recipes are a lot easier to make.
1. Carrot Cake Bites
You’ll need 3 medium carrots, 6 medium dates, ½ cup of chopped pecans, and 1 tablespoon of almond butter.
This is very easy to make. Process the carrots until they are finely grounded. Transfer the carrots to a plate and then process the pecans and dates. Combine the carrots, dates, and pecans in the food processor.
Process until you can see a dough forming. Then roll them into balls. You can also add flaxseed meal if the mixture is too wet. Store the balls in the fridge.
2. Nutella Bars
Prepare a sleeve of graham crackers, a cup of melted butter and a cup of powdered sugar for this recipe. You will also need ½ cup and six tablespoons of Nutella and 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips.
Mix the crushed graham crackers with melted butter, sugar, and ½ cup and two tablespoons of Nutella. Press into an 8×8 pan lined with aluminum foil.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Spread 4 tablespoons of Nutella and add the melted chips. Cover and refrigerate. Cut into bite-sized pieces before serving.
3. Kitty Cat Rice Cakes
You will need two SunRice original rice cakes for this recipe, as well as a small tablespoon of peanut butter. You should also prepare a quarter of a carrot which should be thinly sliced and trimmed into triangles. This will be the ‘ears’ of the cat.
And you will also need a half of a banana which should be sliced for the cheeks. For the whiskers, you must have coconut thread. You should also prepare 2 raisins (for the nose) and 4 currants (for the eyes).
Ask your child to spread peanut butter on the rice cakes. Then place the carrot and banana slices. Arrange the raisins, currant, and coconut so that the cat’s face will be formed. That’s it!
4. Nutella Popsicles
Prepare 1/3 cup of Nutella and a cup of full cream milk. Blend until thoroughly combined. Then pour the mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze them for 4 hours before serving.
5. Trail Mix Cookies
This recipe needs the following ingredients:
- A cup of dried figs
- ½ cup of quick oats
- ½ cup of raisins
- ½ cup shredded coconut and another ½ cup for rolling
- ½ cup of sunflower seeds
Put the figs, raisins, oats, and half cup of coconut in the food process. Blend until the mixture.
Remove this once it has lifted away from the ends of the bowl. Knead the sunflower seeds into the mixture. Make a log which you can cut into even slices. Then roll each slice into the remaining cup of shredded coconut.
6. Strawberry Fudge
Unlike the other recipes here, this one only needs two ingredients— 250 grams of white chocolate buttons and 459 grams of tub strawberry frosting.
Put the white chocolate buttons in a metal bowl, which should be then placed over a saucepan of hot water. Once the buttons have melted, remove the bowl from the saucepan. Add the strawberry frosting. Stir well.
Pour the mixture into a cake tin. Then use the back of a spoon to smooth down the mixture. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Cut into smaller pieces before serving.
7. Peanut Butter Brownies
Prepare a box of brownie mix, a cup of peanut butter and four tablespoons of milk for this recipe.
Combine the brownie mix and peanut butter in a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir well and knead until the ingredients have been thoroughly combined. Add milk and stir.
Roll the dough into small balls. Store in a covered container and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before serving.
8. Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice
You will need ¼ cup of chunky peanut butter, 20 mini chocolate rice cakes, and 3 oz. semi sweet chocolate baking powder for this recipe.
Spread half a teaspoon of peanut butter on each rice cake then arrange them on a sheet of parchment paper.
Break up the chocolate baking powder into 1 inch squares and then put them in a microwave safe bowl.
Heat them for 30 seconds or until the chocolate has melted and smoothened. Drop ½ teaspoon of chocolate into the rice cakes. It shouldn’t take more than an hour for the chocolate to harden.
9. Peanut Balls
Prepare 3 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter, two tablespoons of rice syrup, a cup of almond meal and a cup of shredded coconut.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and shape them into balls. Roll the balls in extra coconut.
10. Watermelon Popsicles
You will need ¼ seedless watermelon and several popsicle sticks for this recipe.
Help your kid by slicing off the ends of the watermelon and then cutting it into larger wedges. Cut a small slit into the green skin of the watermelon, so that the pop stick will be able to slide into the wedge.
Lay the watermelon popsicles on a large plate and then freeze. After a few hours, serve these popsicles and enjoy.
These are all easy to make recipes that you can teach your kids. So why don’t you get them started on cooking today?
