As you all already know that it is spring break for us and I have a list of things that need to be done. I thought one would be to actually try some baking. I thought it would be fun for Maranda and I to make some cookies first, before I tackle some of the beautiful breads that Kristy makes from My Little Space. I will get to those later. If you visit her blog I just want to warn you to be prepared to drool!
So we searched the my grandma's old Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book, with all her slips of paper with recipes and newspaper and magazine cutouts, she came up with snicker doodles. I said let's try something with chocolate, because I had just received a box of chocolates from my friend Pru from Perfecting Pru. She was so kind to send me some English chocolate, and she threw in some other great chocolate that we don't get here. Some that we do like the Kit Kat bar is their version. Maranda and I split that one and we both liked it better than the American one.
The first bar I tried was the Wispa, yum it was light and almost airy! Then the Galaxy bar was so smooth and creamy...I did add a little finishing sea salt to it. Perfect! But I wanted to use the dark chocolate bar in something so I could post about it for Pru. So this is what we did. Then after searching the "web" we found a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie that we both agreed upon. Maranda thought the one from The Instructables looked the best.
After trying some of the delicious dark chocolate I broke it in chunks along with some other "baking" chocolate that I had (why did I buy baking chocolate?).
