How much fun are these?    When Lindt sent me a chocolate delivery (yes I know, that’s a great delivery to get) I knew I had to come up with something Christmassy – there was no way I was melting those Reindeer down for truffles!

The Great British Bake Off with Stork

 

 

Summer holidays is always bedlam in our house, but it does always mean the start of a new series of The Great British Bake Off – and that’s definitely a reason to be happy!

This year I’m joining in (although without the stress and eagle eyes of Paul and Mary watching over me) and baking along to the Bake Off in partnership with Stork.

Chocolate Caramel Shortbread

chocolate caramel shortbread 094

Officially hailed as ‘one of the best things you’ve ever made Mum!’  I reckon this is a recipe you don’t want to miss out on.  A twist on the classic Millionaires Shortbread but with a brilliant chocolate caramel instead.  Four full batches in our house this week (and I’m sorry to admit I only gave one of those away) – better add the ingredients to your shopping list!

Day 2 – Christmas Pudding Chocolate Covered Oreos

Christmas 2 026

Mmmmm!  Christmas pudding shaped Chocolate Covered Oreos!

Now you can get specific chocolate oreo moulds that are a good deal smaller than the way I’m doing these.  I don’t have one, my kitchen is bursting with equipment and I may be the recipient of an angry husband should any more essential bits and pieces make their way into our house!

Flapjack Bars

Flapjack 007 (Copy)

I know I’ve done flapjack before but this one is a bit different, its a thick buttery fudgy type bar flapjack, like you might pick up when you’re out and about.  Great big slabs of flapjack with a good old layer of chocolate on the top.
