Messing with chocolate.

the cooked biscuits

I decided on Monday night we would make biscuits with the children. Unfortunately Fifi had had a hard weekend and that combined with a school trip during the day when she arrived here she promptly went upstairs, climbed into bed and fell asleep.....

So Bob and I made biscuits with our favourite recipe

I used 100g brown rice flour
50g potato flour
50g tapioca flour
80g dairy free spread
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
75g sugar
egg replacer egg 
1 teaspoon glycerin

Mix together all the dry ingredients, rub in the margarine, then bring the mix together with the egg replacer ( or egg if you prefer) and glyverin.

This makes a dozen shortbread biscuits, so we added 50% extra and made more biscuits. 

adding chocolate
The mix is rolled into a large sausage and chilled in the fridge for an hr. At this point Fifi was awake but barely, so Bob sliced them up and we cooked them.

After tea they decided to make them onto chocolate shortbread and decorate them. 

Bob shared them out into two nearly equal piles whilst Fifi melted the chocolate, then they both set about decorating them. Bobs still at the stage where more is better, Fifi is a bit more refrained and decoartes hers nicely.

Fifi came up with the title of the post based on the mess her brother was in once we had finished.

Guess who both licked out the bowl once they had finished
