You know, all those random bits and bobs in your cupboard. Be creative and add them to your recipe. Now is the time to make use of them.
Here are some recipes with the main ingredients you need but you can always get creative and create your own!
2) Cereal is not just for breakfast
You don’t just have to eat cereal for breakfast. Why not use up your cornflakes or rice crispies to make some simple but delicious snacks! Release your inner big kid! If you have a younger sibling then this is also an easy recipe for them to get involved in too! Add marshmallows or mini eggs to create some Easter festivity!
