We Should Cocoa – the December 2013 Challenge
Biscuits, or should I say cookies got us nicely through the dull days of November, my least favourite month of the year. I’ve really got into making these rather too delightful snacks recently and I blame Rebecca of BakeNQuilt who chose this as the theme and did a great job of hosting last month. If you haven’t yet seen her cookie round-up, do take a look. There are some good ideas there for festive biscuit making and indeed some good ideas for non-festive snacking too.
So finally, tis the season to be jolly – or did I mean merry? In time honoured tradition, I’m going to give you something that’s not only festive for December, but also easy. This is not the time to put my bad cop hat on – goodwill and all that. I’m giving you a good excuse to indulge in your favourite tipple, yes that’s right … alcohol. And I’m not going to be specific here, I’ll leave that for a future date. You can choose whatever alcoholic beverage you like: a drop of rum or brandy, some scented mulled wine or cider or how about a slug of that sloe gin I know you’re all so fond of. So it’s over to you, festive or otherwise – as long as it contains chocolate and the alcohol is a main flavouring ingredient; I’m not sure I’d be willing to accept a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
And as my Christmas present to you all, I am extending the deadline by three whole days – nobody can accuse me of not being generous! You have until midnight on the 28th of this month to get your entries in. So Merry Bakers, I wish you a delightful December and I look forward to seeing what boozy delights you come up with.
You can see the rules etc on the We Should Cocoa page.
