Most of the time I don't like to show the things (even the sweets) before the arrived at the persons they are thought for. So here we go with my christmas sweets. But some of them are adaptable for other occasions.
Like my zebra brownie! Just a normale brownie with dark chocolate and a "brownie" with white chocolate baked in an open jar. After baking I instantly closed the lid (Yes, it is hot, be careful!) so it will be durable for a long time. Not that brownies are really durable... that is against their nature of being tasty ^^ The brownie will get a new consisty compared to a traditional one because most of the moisture stays in the jar. It is a little bit more creamy... don't know how to describe it better. But a little bit like a new kind of brownie.
The next sweet was an idea I had while talking with a friend. Snowball apples!
Just use organic apples which were grown without the use of pesticides. I mean you want to eat the apple skin! Wash the apples and put a wooden stick in them. Just cover them with melted white chocolate and cover it with desiccated coconut. All the little flakes...!
I love the look! A snowball!
In a nice wrapping... :)
And of course I had to make some melting snowmen! There were so many in the last linking parties that were so adorable and cute that I couldn't resist.
I just made cookies out of shortcrust (does it really say shortcrust in english for this kind of dough?). The icing is powedered sugar with lemon juice (I love that taste!). The heads were marshmellows which were for 15 to 18 seconds in the microwave at 600 W. The faces and co were painted with a sugar paste.
And now please forgive me... I just added too many fotos of the cookies here! ^^
