Remember this sneak peak I showed you a few weeks back ...this is what it was...a journal cover I had made this one for Tereasa, our online stitching groups latest swap....
Today is such a dirty hot windy day............
Club Quilt, so it was a good way to spend the day indoors...tried a new slice today..I was in the hairdressers the other day and came across this slice and thought now I will make that for Sunday I will remember the ingredients, but guess what couldn't remember them all...
but I did put together this and it was not too bad at all...have not idea what it was called so..
lets call this one...
Yummy Handfuls...
200g chocolate (eating)
100g butter...
melt together on stove over hot water
handful of walnuts chopped
handful of dried 'fruit medley mix" (Angus Park for us Aussies), or a bit more..
handful of dried cranberries
about 100g of Digestive biscuits, broken into small pieces
mix together
stir into chocolate mixture
press into a small lamington tin (does about 3/4 of the tin) line tin with baking paper...
cut into fingers sprinkle with icing sugar
yummo...could make a lovely Christmas Slice..
