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)

stitch butter cookies

i’m extremly held up with work now…as my GCSEs are actually here. i just had my english literature exam yesterday…which was not good at all. anyways, the following posts will just be updating what i’ve been up to during the last month or so 🙂

———————-

first up are stitch shaped butter cookies! i bought these cutters immediately as i saw them on the shelf in a baking store. these are quite easy to make, and are really tasty too! (similar to kjeldsens cookies)

recipe here (via happy home baking)

mango cheesecake

made this to use up some of the mangoes mum bought. they were really sweet after letting them ripe for a few days 🙂 this was really easy to whip up, and it was yummy too. only thing is that i think that there wasn’t enough mango flavour in the filling, but i already used the 3 mangoes i had left on hand – one for the cheese filling, one diced and mixed into the cheese and one for the jelly topping.

i planned to use mango jelly for the topping, but parknshop ran out of mango flavoured jelly powder! argh, so i had to use orange instead, which resulted in this overly-bright colour that sort of hid the mango slices on top. :S an important note is that you must add the jelly in two batches, as the mango slices are likely to float around, and the first layer of jelly helps ‘stick’ them down.
