Sporting legends Matt Dawson and Greg Searle have fun and get creative in the kitchen!
If you’re looking for something to keep your kids busy and away from the TV, why not try making some fluffy sheep as an ideal solution to an afternoon in the house with the kids? Even sports stars can be encouraged to get stuck in to food art with a little friendly competition.
Using simple techniques, Matt Dawson, former England rugby player, and Greg Searle, Olympic gold medallist rower, show how to make fluffy sheep made from a Cheerios and marshmallow mixture, with black grape heads and raisin legs.
The kids won’t need much persuading to get their little fingers into this gooey mixture. Just like Greg and Matt, they’ll love to compete with each other to make the best sheep. If your little ones want to have some fun, food art is a great way to learn about the food they eat. This easy-to-follow recipe uses Cheerios which contain whole grain, an important part of a healthy diet.
These recipes would be brilliant for Easter too!
Watch this video where Matt and Greg show you step by step how to create these tasty fluffy summer sheep.
20 Large Marshmallows
40g Desiccated coconut
6 Black grapes
50g White chocolate
Use the melted chocolate to make 2 dots on each head to make the eyes and push in a currant to form the pupils. Use a little melted chocolate to attach 2 currants to make the ears.
