This week is not a real recipe as much as an idea to create cookies decorated with children to exercise their manual skills and fine, as well as of course to enjoy a scary snack for Halloween!
- Chocolate pralines
- Gel edible black in pen
- Eyes of sugar
- Icing of white sugar
We prepare a frosting with powdered sugar and water. The doses are a few tablespoons of powdered sugar and a few drops of water. We advise you to proceed gradually and adjust the consistency by adding the ingredients gradually.
Let's start with spider cookies, ideal for Halloween. Cover a biscuit with white icing and a black gel pen (if you can not find it, you can add some colorant to the created icing) to create concentric circles.
The child with a toothpick starting from the center of the cookie will create lines gently bringing the toothpick to the outside, to create the designs of a frightening spider's web.
There is no web without spiders .... and then we create cookies with spiders. We take two chocolate pralines (we used chocolate-coated peanuts). We place them on the biscuit to form the body of the spider. To "glue" we use glaze.
With the gel pen we create 8 legs, just start from the body and bring the glaze to the outside. This activity, in addition to stimulating fine motor skills and coordination, will give the child the opportunity to practice the numbers.
Finally we add the little eyes, we have found some little eyes of sugar, but in case you do not find them you can opt to create some drops with the glaze to create the eyes.
Last ... there is no Halloween without bats! We covered the biscuit with black icing, helping us with a toothpick to exert the pinch grip.
We liked a lot, and you?
