Mince Pies and Jam Tarts

Next bout of cooking, a few Mince Pies and Jam Tarts
(for those in the household who do not like mince pies).  
I have only made a few so far, as I like them fresh and warm from the oven,
but mmmmmmmm delicious

Sausage Rolls next on the menu and maybe some Oreo Cookie Balls :)

Mars Bar Cake

Christmas is nearly here and one of my first makes is a Mars Bar Cake; only trouble is, it didn't last long enough and so will have to be making some more!!!

This was all tht was left about an hour after making it!! LOL

  It's really easy and quick to make and tastes delicious.  There are various methods, which include some with Digestive Biscuits and some with Rice Krispies, others use golden syrup and some margarine or butter, melted with the Mars Bars.  The Mars Bars and Golden Syrup/Butter/Margarine are melted together and then the 'Krispies' or crushed Digestives are added till the mixture is evenly coated and will hold together when set. The Topping is solid chocolate and that again is a preference with either plain or milk chocolate; melt the chocolate and then pour over the base and allow it all to set; if you can wait long enough.


Dorcas Designs Candy

Have a look at Dorcas' website - stunning cards and colouring and Dorcas also has some delicious candy at the moment too! Until 30th December 2011.
