The school holidays are a great time for kids to become creative in the kitchen! However, when they realise cooking isn’t just about licking the bowl and they actually have to put work in, it suddenly isn’t so fun. To help you out and bring the fun into cooking, we have compiled some “no-bake” recipes so you can make yummy treats without hearing any complaining from kids that it’s “taking too long” and asking, “is it ready to eat yet?”

No-Bake Milo Balls
Milo is a classic Aussie treat that is hard for children to go by. There’s only one thing that may be better than an icy-cold Milo on a hot day and that is these easy no-bake Milo balls! They are made up of Marie biscuits, condensed milk, coconut and of course Milo to give it that chocolatey-malt and delicious taste.

No-Bake Chocolate Avocado Mousse
I know you’re probably thinking, “chocolate with avocado – no thanks!” but I can reassure you that it doesn’t taste like avocado and the consistency of this mousse will knock you and your kid’s socks off!
