For our younger chefs: Remember to ask for help from an adult when completing these recipes, but most of all have fun!


  • Bananas (one per lolly)
  • Dried apricots
  • Chocolate
  • Mini marshmallows


  1. Peel the bananas and ask the adult helping you to chop the bottom off so they can stand up later. Eat the bit you’ve chopped off, a snack for the chef is very important!
  2. Ask your adult helper to melt you some chocolate, you’ll need a couple of squares melted per lolly. You can do this in the microwave (keep an eye on it) or in a bowl over hot water. 
  3. Once the chocolate has melted you can dip the bananas into it. About a third of the banana should be covered in chocolate.
  4. While the chocolate is still wet use it to stick apricot feet and a beak and marshmallow eyes to bring your penguin to life. You can freeze your bananas to make a frozen treat or you pop them in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
