- Take some skewers and chop up your child’s favourite fruits - the more colourful the better. We recommend raspberries, apples, melon, mango, oranges, kiwis and blueberries.

Sweeter Treat!Honey joys
One of the oldest party foods around. A classic baking recipe for kids!

- 3 tbsp blossom honey
- 300g Corn flakes
- Preheat your oven to 160 degrees, and prepare a tray with small paper casings for the cakes.
- Mix together 180g butter and 2 tbsp blossom honey.
- Melt and stir on a low heat until it starts to bubble - then remove from the heat.
- Toss Corn Flakes into a bowl and pour the mixture over. Mix well without breaking the cornflakes.
- Spoon into the casings and pop in the over for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them.

We recommend trying both heather and blossom - blossom for a sweeter taste, heather for something a little more sophisticated or signature blend for a bit of both. Show off your sweet treats by tagging us on @scottishbeecompany over on Instagram!
