The other day, while Little Miss Q slept…
Dino Boy and I baked *smile*

Gingerbread… he decided
And so we got the ingredients ready for him to make the dough

30 g butter
60 g brown sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
pinch salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup flour
cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cayenne pepper to taste

These days I can step back…
…and let him do much of the baking himself…
{and he loves that he can}

So he melted the butter, sugar and syrup before adding the dry ingredients *smile*
Then worked it until is was a good dough, before rolling it out and cutting his shapes!

We enjoyed our afternoon tea at our Toadstool Nook
Eating up shooting stars and angry cats *wink*

And isn’t there something lovely…
…about drinking homemade lemonade from a jar *smile* 

Surrounded by beautiful blooming poppies!

Gush ~ my little man makes me smile
Happy days,

Chocolate spiders

Have I mentioned our love of…
…all things containing chocolate and peanut butter?
Well Chocolate Spiders fit this bill nicely, with the added fun of noodle crunch!
My brothers and I used to make these all the time…
…but I hadn’t made them for a good while 
{6 months or so *wink*}
When I was reminded of their tasty goodness by Hublet over at Taming the Goblin

Chocolate Spiders are super easy to make
But… BE WARNED… the are super moreish!
moreish (informal, of food) Causing one to want to have more 
Firstly, melt your chocolate & peanut butter in the microwave
Before mixing the noodles through
Next place spiders on foil tray for easy removal later 
And for a bit of fun we added some chocolate eyes
{because you can never have too much chocolate!}

Then we popped them in the fridge for as long as we could resist them!
This cluster of spiders did not last long *smile*

Happy baking,
