If you want to try out some new Christmas recipes this year, the library has a bunch of excellent Christmas cookbooks with tasty, kid friendly recipes to try.

Flicking through the book Christmas Cooking by Rebecca Gilpin & Catherine Atkinson provided photos of lots of tasty looking treats, the most pink of which was the Coconut Mice.

This is what they are supposed to look like
I thought this would be a good recipe to try out so, assembling three groups of actual kids, and three lots of ingredients, I set the kids to work at making mice. 
The results, well, see for yourselves:
Group 1: Not bad
Group 2: Seems to have been a mice fight
Group 3: Rushed for time

 Despite not all turning out looking exactly like the photo in the book, the mice all tasted okay -very sweet!

Definitely worth trying this at home. Let us know how yours turn out.
