' Chocolate!

Recipe for making chocolate candy!

Happy Friday everyone!!!

It´s trick or treat time of the year - we rather go for a treat today than a trick, shall we?!

Chocolate Candy

150g milk chocolate
150g dark chocolate
75g dried cranberries
50g burnt candied almonds (replace with any other nuts if you wish), roughly chopped
40g raisins
35g hazelnuts, roughly chopped

What you need to do is melting both chocolates together (use a water bath). While the chocolate is melting you can already spread all the other ingredients onto baking paper. Simply pour the melted chocolate over and let dry over night :) Break into pieces.

Yuuuuuum!!!

Have an amazing weekend!!!

' Bread chips

Recipe for making bread chips!

Hello everyone and happy Friday!!!

Fall time is comfort time...slow down, enjoy the beautiful autumn colors and make yummy food that is just made to nibble on during the day...so how about some super easy bread chips?


Bread chips

baguette bread
butter
salt, pepper
dried herbs

Cut the baguette into slices as thin as possible and arrange them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Melt the butter and season with salt and pepper. Stir in some dried herbs.

Brush the baguette slices with the butter and bake at 200°C for about 10 minutes.
You might want to stay close to your oven and watch them as they go very quickly from "perfect" to "burnt". 







Have a great fall weekend!!!

' Pudding cookies

Recipe for baking pudding cookies!


Happy Friday everyone!!!

We realized how long we didnt have a nice little cookie recipe, so today we shall be making yummy chocolate cookies!
They make fabulous little lunch box treats!





Pudding Cookies

200g butter
170g brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 package pudding powder, whatever flavor you like best (I would use vanilla, almond or pistacchio!)
2 eggs
280g flour
20g cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
300g of "add-ins"

Mix butter, sugar, salt and pudding powder until white and creamy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. 
Mix flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Add into the bowl.
Last, add in some fun bits like chopped nuts, chocolate, M&Ms, dried fruit...whatever you fancy!

Put teaspoons of dough onto a prepared cookie tray. You dont have to put them super wide apart as they wont spread too much.

Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes.






Have an awesome weekend!!!
