I think we are on the 2nd week of the holidays, although it feels like 20th!!! It’s tricky keeping the kids occupied and I am not doing a trip out every day. If I let them screen time would dominate their lives and they would just fall into a device induced coma by the end of the day.

Both like pottering around in the kitchen, although not healthy this fudge recipe is right up there with the kids as more time is spent licking the bowl and spoon than actually making it.

Give it a go with your  smalls – but be prepared for a sugar rush at the end!
