Father's day is this Sunday (June 17th). If you haven't bought your dad a card or gift yet, don't worry, there's still time. And if you want to make the dad in your life's day even more special, why not whip up some indulgent snacks for him to enjoy?
You can get the kids involved the activity as well, as there are plenty of scrumptious recipes that are kid friendly - just make sure they're wearing their aprons for children, so they don't get their clothes messy!
If Dad's a bit of a chocoholic, some crispy rice cakes will go down a treat. The basic recipe simply involves melting some chocolate and mixing in crispy rice cereal until you have the right consistency. Then, press the mixture into a cake pan and put it in the fridge to let it set.
You could also jazz up the traditional recipe by replacing the standard chocolate with your pop's favourite chocolate bar. Mars bars are one fabulous choice, as the caramel adds another layer of flavour. But you could do the same with a Snickers, a Bounty or even a chocolate orange.
Coconut balls are another super-simple treat.
Start by pre-heating your oven to 190 decrees C. Take a can of condensed milk and pour the contents into a bowl. Then add a bag of desiccated coconut. You could also add a few drops of food colouring if you wish. Mix it up well then line a baking tray with non-stick paper. Now it's time to get sticky!
With your hands, press the mixture into balls about the size of golf balls, and place them on the baking tray. When they're ready to go, bake them in the oven for about ten minutes - until they turn a lightly golden colour.
Whatever you choose to cook for Dad this Father's Day, don't forget to decorate the finished product. Sprinkles, icing and small colourful sweets are all good decorations, and you can let the kids' imaginations run wild.
