BWWWWWWWWAHAHAHAHAHA- well, it should. I baked for the first time in over 5 years!! Well not really baked, but made some biscuits or cookies as you know them. Cakes??- well that one I leave for the professionals-lol. Stop laughing now- hahahaha. Mrs Miles, you proud of me???- hee hee
And Bunny teased me a few posts ago about my cards as being all *TELL and NO SHOW*- pphhhhttttt, lol. Well I decided yesterday to take *proof photo's* for Bunny Wunny and my Sister too- lol
Wayne thought I was NUTS- first of all for pulling out the baking tins and bowls ( well lets just say he nearly had a heart attack- hahaha), then thought I had really lost it as I took photo's on the go- when I said it's PROOF, he collapsed laughing and said he would have needed to see them too if he hadn't been in the kitchen at the time to witness it- hee hee
So here is a little SHOW- of the Choc chip, Almond Shortbreads! WHEEEEEEEEEEE-lol
Copped choc with almonds ready and attacked by Wayne as I was doing it- lol
YUP- I even did the *creaming* method and not the cut and use fingers method ( ok the blender didn't sound soooo good after I was finished- I think the thing is rusty inside from lack of use! hahahaha)
WOOOOHOOOOOO! They came out PERFECT and according Wayne better than sister Gayes *dood gooi's*! lol, ( baked to deaths)
Well if that wasn't enough to bring a storm - I decided to try something new too- My mom always used to make us the Marshmallow Crispy treats as kids ( loved the chewy chewy crunch of them) and saw something similar - so uhum, yeah out of practice me decides to take the bull by the horns and make em-
The toffee sauce waiting for the huge amount of Peanut Butter ;-)
All mixed and spread out in the greased pan waiting to cool! Shee's besides the sauce part this was quite simple and easy!
The finished squares with melted White Choc on the top! WHEEEEEE- and My Dad took a whole lot home with him this morning- he LOVED them! They are sweet with a slight salty twist due to our styled peanut butter- chewy and crunchy! YUM! lol
Charlie asked me for the recipe after I had sent through the big I DID IT to the Designers at DSO yesterday- lol. so I thought I would share it with you all to try.
Peanut Butter Crispies.
30g Hard Margarine or Butter
250ml (1 cup)Brown Sugar
250ml (1 cup)Golden Syrup ( I used Maple ;-))
250ml (1 cup) Peanut Butter
2x500ml Rice Crispies ( 1litre)
5ml Vanilla essence
White choc for melting and decorating
Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan.
Bring to the boil and stir until all the sugar has melted.
Remove from the heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla essence.
Add the rice Crispies and mix well ( I added a little more due to the amount of toffee sauce still in the pan- just judge for your own liking)
Spoon into greased rectangular pan and press down.
Leave to cool for at least an hour and cut into squares.
Decorate with melted chocolate.
Makes about 36 squares (depending on pan and depth)
And Bunny has been busy creating too- Have you seen this??
