A few days ago I thought that I baked cookies very long time ago. And my mother mentioned that she liked the cookies that baked with chocolate. And I wanted oat cookies. So when I saw this recipe I decided to make them 🙂 Because my hubby don’t want to eat sweets, almost all cookies went to my work. And I have to say that I had no cookies to take home 🙂

At first I was very sceptical about this recipe, because I thought that butterscotch and dried fruits won’t fit together. I was wrong and I am very happy about that 🙂 Dried fruits are perfect here, the dessert is not too sweet because of them.
Today we celebrate Easter in my son’s kindergarten. I was asked to bring few eggs, but I just had to put them somewhere. So I baked this basket 🙂 But while I was baking it, 2 eggs of 5 were eaten by my children, so I have to put candies to look basket pretty 🙂
After a long term there comes the cookies which my daughter liked very very much. Other cookies for her a too dry, she likes only the ones with dried friuts or nuts, or seeds. My son is a “white flour boy”, he can eat all cookies and these cookies were not different 🙂 . Puffed rice gives these crunchy cookies some softness. Chocolate like always gives for the cookies some charminess and while cookies are warm it is still melted and that’s the way my daughter likes 🙂
I have not one biscotti recipe, but for the first time I decided to bake the simplest kind – basic. I was afraid that simple ones look like rusk, so I decorated them with dark and white chocolate. At the office, we laugh that I brought them rusks but anyway biscotti disappeared quickly. And for afternoon tea/coffee there were only a few biscotti left.
This spread I found accidentally. But the simplicity was intriguing and I gave a try. Even my hubby, who doesn’t like cocoa, agreed that it’s very good. So almost all last week at school my girl ate sandwiches with this cream and peanut butter. And today I had to prepare this spread again, because it was very good with a freshly baked bread for me too 🙂
