what about train cakes?

Get some moring coffee (rectangel)biscuits dip in milk place 4 in row, cover in layer of melted chocolate, repeat until train shaped. cover outside in chocolate. thats it really, needs chilling for a while once done, u could get kids to decorate with buttons, marshmallows or smarties afterwards...

healthier option is apple crumble.

dice apple, sprinkle sugar. get kids to make crumble ,using cubed butter, flour and suager, let them crumble with fingers, slinkle liberally on top, and n the over for half an hour!
