Melting Moments

What are melting moments you ask? Well….I think they are just little oat biscuits with a cherry on. I’m not sure why they are called melting moments but I’m going to go with it. I had the help of two little monsters when I was making these.

These are the kind of perfect Sunday afternoon recipe because they are quick and simple. I like the simplicity of this recipe because it meant I could spend so much more time with the little monsters. 

These little biscuits go down well with a cup of tea. You could leave the cherries out if your not a fan or change it with some other kind of fruit. Melting moments defiantly feel like the right way to describe these biscuits because they do just melt in your mouth when you eat one.

This recipe is good kids because there isn’t anything to complicated about this recipe. If your little monsters love to get messy two then this recipe is a good one because your hands get all sticky from the dough.
