Stage one – Melt chocolate in a bowl either in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water (to be completed by an adult). At the same time crush biscuits and maltesers in a bowl. This is the first chance for the children to get involved, just be careful with your crushing method.
Stage two – Put all of the other ingredients (cranberries, cake crumbs and mini marshmallows) into the bowl. You can then add the chocolate and golden syrup, ensuring that you mix well.
Stage three – Pour the coconut onto a plate. Here comes the messy part! Put a spoonful of mixture onto the plate and roll around into a ball until it is covered in coconut. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
Stage four – Place on a baking tray and leave to cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour. To make them pretty you can also get the children to cover them in sprinkles as well.
Stage five – Now this is the best stage…. Tasting time!
