Well, I mentioned the Rocky Road went down a storm! I started off with Nigella's recipe but substituted ginger biscuits and added nutmeg, cinnamon, a little vanilla and some sugar stars. To make it Christmassy!
I will be making it again before long for the simple reason that I am terrible at Christmas cards but I love baking so I usually give edible Christmas cards. I bake a batch of something, make it more festive and hand them out with Seasonal Greetings! The staff (and even the odd curious sixth former) made short work of these. The next batch will be for friends.
So why don't I give cards? Well I do give some in a conventional way. I always buy a box - they must be Christian in message and from a charity - but I dislike how impersonal they are. Everyone gets the same card. But I don't enjoy making cards like I do pages. If I bake, I still get to make something, it's still personal and hand-delivered and it's also delicious!
P.S. I told you I'd bring back the stitched circles. Although this time I drew them on!
