YOU - whisk the egg whites until they turn stiff.

YOUR CHILD - Add the sugar to the whisked eggs, a tablespoon at a time while the adult continues to whisk the mixture.

Add the chocolate mixture into the egg whites and stir in well.

 

 Whisked egg whites

  YOUR CHILD and YOU - take a small amount of the mixture, a tablespoons worth, and coat it in the remaining sugar. As you coat it, roll it roughly into a ball. Gently press it into a tablespoon to form a paw shape.
Bake the biscuits in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and place them on a rack to cool. Melt the remaining half of the chocolate in a bowl placed in hot water.

The chocolate can take some time to solidify, so if you are in a hurry put them in the fridge for 20 minutes.
