During the Easter holidays the Little Cooks Co kindly sent their Easter box for me to try out and review with the help of my little one.
There was much excitement when we arrived home one day to find the Easter Little Cooks Co box, which had fitted perfectly through our letterbox, ready for us to try out during the Easter holidays.
Upon opening the box we found packets of labelled dry ingredients (a selection is shown in the above photo), three recipe cards including an evening meal suggestion and a kit for making an Easter basket. The recipe cards were for chocolate cookies, homemade chocolate and homemade fish fingers. All the dry ingredients in the box were for making the chocolate cookies and chocolate (very apt for Easter!) and the recipe card for the fish fingers was to inspire us to do a bit more cooking one dinner time. We still have to try the fish finger recipe but are looking forward to giving it a go.
The recipe cards in the box were appealing to look at, straight forward to follow (although I did read them at night when my little one was in bed to give me time to read and digest). My little one and I cooked the cookies and chocolate together, which was great fun. We enjoy cooking together regularly but one of the biggest challenges I find is not being organised enough to pre-measure the ingredients and ending up with ingredients everywhere as the little one is enthusiastically mixing whilst I try to get the other ingredient ready to add! The Little Cooks Co box helped with this as all the dry ingredients were already weighed and ready to go, we just had to add the wet ingredients. Once we had finished making the cookies we put them in the oven and then went through the tradition of licking out the bowl.
It was great to have a crafting activity in the box as well, this was a really well thought out addition. We actually made the Easter basket as soon as the box arrived as the stickers were too appealing not to be used, so our basket was ready and waiting for when our cookies had cooled. The cookies were tasty and we found that the recipe made plenty.
We also made the homemade chocolate together, it was made a rich dark chocolate and was so simple with just 3 main ingredients, in addition we added orange peel to half the chocolate mixture and dipped the other half of the chocolate into dried apricots. The chocolate was dark and rich but delicious, I will keep the recipe safe for Christmas as I think it could make some lovely homemade Christmas gifts.
