Bubblegum flavour Angel Delight cheesecake

I was a big fan of Angel Delight when I was younger and make it as a quick treat for my children now. I thought I would make them something extra special as it was the end of a busy week.

How to make Bubblegum flavour Angel Delight cheesecake:

Make the Angel Delight by whisking the milk and contents of the Angel Delight sachet. Place the Digestives in a small bag and crush into crumbs with a rolling pin.

Pour the biscuit crumbs into a glass jar, make sure they are evenly distributed, pour over the Angel Delight and leave to set. Just before serving add pink sprinkles to the top.

Angel Delight cheesecakeMy 4 year old really enjoyed his little cheesecake, especially the Bubblegum flavoured Angel Delight. I made two, the other was in an empty Bonne Maman jar and looked great, I will definitely be making these again!

This post is an entry for #AngelDelightMoments Linky Challenge *I received 2 sachets of Bubblegum flavour Angel Delight, a glass sundae glass and a fun dotty straw.

The new Bubblegum flavour Angel Delight, which launched in Tesco last September, can be used to make either a traditional instant dessert or a milkshake, with instructions for both on the back of the packet! The Bubblegum flavour is made only using natural colourings and is suitable for vegetarians.

A brilliant report

This evening was Parent’s Evening and I was actually quite excited to hear how the 4 year old has been getting on in Reception. It’s almost impossible to get any kind of feedback on how he’s settled in apart from what he tells me, and the only thing I ever hear is how good school lunches are.

Before I went to see his teacher I was able to look through his Topic, Literacy and Mathematics Books. I took some photos of a couple of pages as I loved to see what he’s been up to. He had written about a special time (at Grandad’s), why he was special (I can ride my bike) and what he wanted to be ( an artist).

Read with Biff, Chip & Kipper app

Now my 4 year old has settled into Reception he’s bringing home reading books, sound book and reading records so I’ve been on the look out for ways to help reinforce his learning at home. Luckily for him  the ‘Read with Biff, Chip and Kipper’ books have recently been launched as a range of interactive reading apps.

Created in association with Oxford University Press and starring the much loved characters from Oxford Reading Tree, the ‘Read with Biff, Chip and Kipper’ range features six levels of reading and phonics books, complementing the learning children are undertaking at school and giving parents the opportunity to support their child’s reading at home.

There are a total of 48 books across six levels, with each level containing four reading books and four phonics books. The digital books are true to the traditional books from the range and give children the opportunity to learn to read in a thoroughly modern way. My 4 year old loves this app and recognised the characters straight away as he started reading these books at Nursery.

The app is easy to navigate and although we’ve used it together he can also use it on his own as the books can be read by him (when he’s able), read to him or can be played on autoplay. The books have some tips for reading together and I find the tips really helpful.

Features:

  • Read with your child or listen as they read to you
  • Auto Play feature allows children to enjoy listening to the whole book being read to them
  • Hints and tips in each book for you to use with your child when reading and talking about the story
  • Each book features a list of common words used within
  • Puzzles and activities – each book encourages your child to have fun looking for details throughout the story as well as finishing off with an enjoyable game

Read with Biff

‘Read with Biff, Chip & Kipper: Library’ is currently available as a free app, offering two free books from level 1 when you download the library. In addition, customers can at present download the whole of levels 1-3 for a discounted price of just £3.99 which represents amazing value.

The apps are available for iPhone and iPad from the App Store , Android from Google Play and the Windows Store.
