Things go in cycles with my kids. One month they are really into something and then the next, they have moved on to something new. A while ago my twins were really into The Wiggles. They loved their music and videos and we even took them to a concert. Then all of sudden they lost interest. They never asked for me to play The Wiggles music anymore.
But one day, a few weeks ago, we were driving somewhere, and I found a Wiggles DVD in the car and popped it in. Well ever since then, the kids only want to listen to The Wiggles. Their current favorite song is "Crunchy, Munchy Honeycakes." One of my kids started asking "when can we make Crunchy, Munchy, Honeycakes?" I gave her the standard mom response - "one day we'll do that." That usually satisfies my kids and they forget about it. But this one daughter of mine did not forget. Every day she would say,"maybe we'll make Crunchy, Munchy Honeycakes today." She sounded so hopeful every time she said it, that I finally gave in. Read on for the recipe for this easy kids snack...
If you are going to make Crunchy, Munchy Honeycakes then you need to use The Wiggles recipe. We changed it up a bit for our tastes.
You will need:
- 3 cups of Muesli flakes
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 cup self-rising flour (or see handy substitution here)
- 1/2 cup (125 grams) of butter
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 3 tablespoons of milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
The Wiggles recipe calls for 1 cup of coconut, but we are not coconut fans, so we left that out and they still turned out great. We also used muesli that had raisins in it and I actually think this made for a tastier treat.
In a saucepan, heat butter, honey and milk.
In a large bowl, mix muesli flakes, sugar and sifted flour.
Pour the melted butter, honey and milk mixture over the dry ingredients in the bowl.
The kids really loved helping out with rolling the honeycakes. I put a bunch of dough on a plate and just showed them how they could roll it into the size of a walnut and add it to a greased baking tray.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Ours took closer to 25 minutes.
You now have a yummy cookies recipe that makes a great snack while watching what else...The Wiggles!
