Anzac biscuits, chocolate crunch & lollies

The girls really wanted to do some baking on Thursday so we got out one of our favourite kids cookbooks (its our favourite because the recipes are mostly measured in cup sizes, which is so much easier and quicker) the recipes are really simple but very delicious too! Cordelia decided on making a Chocolate Crunch
She had to sift the flour and cocoa into the sugar, cornflakes and coconut and then add the melted butter.
Then the mixture had to be pressed into a greased dish to go in the microwave, never heard of this before so was a bit dubious, the first dish we used was too big for the microwave so Cordelia had to move it to a round dish. It then went on full power for 5 minutes

She then made a delicious fudge icing for the top and sprinkled sugar starnds on the top. I forgot to take a picture of it decorated so this is before it was iced but it was very, very yummy.
Piper picked this recipe for Anzac biscuits, they are named this because traditionally they were made and sent to the ANZAC'S (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) serving in Gallipoli. 
 They were made using, flour, oats, coconut, golden syrup, melted butter and bicarb
 Pier had to cut the butter into pieces ready to be melted
She added the syrup to the melted butter
 Then it was added to the sugar, flour, coconut, oats and bicarb. In the oven they went.

 No pictures at all for these as I totally forgot! They spread so much in the oven that we had to leave them to cool and cut them into biscuit slices with the pizza cutter, they were really delicious though and we will be making them again very soon. Whilst the biscuits were cooking the kids went into the garden and had an ice lolly to cool down, we are so not used to such hot temperatures in April!
