A Family Favourite Easy Christmas Recipe For Kids … (in English and Spanish)

Christmas is a great time to get messy in the kitchen with your children. This easy Christmas recipe for kids is one of our family favourites. We still have stains on our kitchen walls (we call them trophies 😉 ) from when the kids were younger and we got messy making these.

The alcoholic tipple is totally an optional extra, it is a good idea to separate the mixture before making a bowl of adults and a bowl of kiddies truffle mixture 😉

The children love getting messy when rolling the mixture into balls …
