twist, lick and dunk generously in a glass of milk.

finally tried out this recipe from smitten kitchen! haha yes, another revision snack.

the filling was a bit sweet for me, but i loved the cookie – they were great on their own too, crispy and chocolatey. but my cookies didn’t spread as much so the cookie was thicker and fatter in size hehe.

[still in exam mode :S]

black bottoms

yeah, these were made for school (again). i bought these along to my second-last day of year 11, before i go on exam leave. these are basically chocolate cupcakes with a cheesecake filling, made even more sinful with extra chocolate chips added in. yum. and because there is no frosting, i was able to carry many of these to school without damage, and these were minis again. recipe was from smitten kitchen.

these fellas taste better after chilling them overnight…it’s more moist/fudgy and the whole thing just tastes better.

chocolate cupcakes for physics

i made these for my last ever physics lesson in my life – i’m not going to be taking it for IB, so yeah. the recipe was the same one i used last time for birthday cupcakes, the previous post is here. (this recipe is officialy foolproof for me :D)

this time i made them into minis, as it would be quite impossible for me to lug 25 standard sized cupcakes to school along with my books without half of them being squashed. i didn’t have much time to do the frosting, so i just topped each with an m’n’m and iced ‘Mr’ and ‘L’ onto two (my physics’ teacher’s name)

even though you’ll never read this: thankyou mr L for being a great teacher and for making physics easier to understand! i’m going to miss your lessons! (not so much of the actual physics though :P)

world peace cookies

these are like almost the best cookies ever. really easy to whip up, you can freeze the dough and bake cookies whenever you want, and most of all, they’re really chocolatey 😛

if only these cookies can really create world peace…

recipe from smitten kitchen (i simply love this site – brilliant photos, and deb’s flair with words)
this is the first recipe after months of stalking the smitten kitchen. almost half of my favs on delicous are recipes from there, but i never got round to trying out some… 😦

oreo cheesecake again

this oreo cheesecake was made for yanyan, my sunday school teacher that will be leaving us. i wasn’t there for the farewell party cause i had a running race (don’t ask :S), so i didn’t get to taste the cake.

the orginal recipe only has two layers-vanilla and oreo, but to make a bigger cake i adapted the recipe and added a third chocolate cheese layer and a chocolate ganache glaze to make the cake look neater.

the lettering was done with some leftover white chocolate ganache from sandwich cookies i did earlier. and do the letters look like they’re piped from a tube of mayonnaise? i think they do :P! my piping skills are bad, so i can only do big, bold letters 😦 the fish at the bottom was orignally a failed smiley face hahah.

but i like the border of silver dragees and red sugar hearts 🙂
