St. Nicholas... Who doesn't know it? The perfect opportunity not to have to cook, but instead to fill the whole table with delicious snacks. Here at home, the children regularly help with cooking and especially during Sinterklaas it is ideal to take some of the tension and impatience out of it.
Let's keep it simple. These three kid-friendly Sinterklaas snacks are easy to make, so the littlest kitchen brigade can ideally support you. Above all, give it your own twist ... because, of course, it should remain a delicious evening!
Make Sinterklaas feel completely welcome and make a letter 'S' on a big board out of all kinds of delicious old Dutch snacks. The kids can go wild on this.
We used cheese, sausage, poffertjes and cucumber, but feel free to let your imagination run wild and use snacks that you find tasty (and/or healthy). Sprinkle some pepernoten around it: super festive and totally ready to welcome Sinterklaas and his pete's!
Making your own sausage rolls has never been easier. At our house, it's a true Sinterklaas snack classic. And let's face it... the kids love them, but so do you!
Drain small knakworstjes and then wrap them in the puff pastry. For the creabeas among us: of course, you can also make them into a braid or bow for some extra Sinterklaas festivity.
Brush some egg yolk on top and place in the oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes.
Tip! For the adults and slightly more culinary kids, it's also very nice to add some pesto and/or halloumi cheese before it goes into the oven.
For this Sinterklaas crumble take a nice glass: high or low doesn't matter, whatever you like. You crumble the speculaas in it at the bottom. On top of this goes a homemade white chocolate mousse, which I will show you below how to make in no time. It is and remains of course a Sinterklaas snack, so top it all off with pepernoten. Super delicious, easy to make and therefore absolutely indispensable during Saint Nicholas Eve!
For 8 servings:
Melt the white chocolate au bain marie. Carefully break the eggs and split the yolks from the whites. Tip: Use the yolks for brushing on the homemade sausage rolls!
Beat the egg whites until stiff and, in another bowl, beat the whipping cream until stiff, with the sugar mixed in.
Stir the melted white chocolate into the whipped cream mixture and, lastly, carefully spat in the beaten egg whites.
Let rest in the refrigerator for an hour before decorating with the speculoos and pepernoten.
