Chocolate ginger macadamia chilli cookies

Posted by Frances Chan on Sunday, September 25, 2022, In : cookies 

I'm having a biscuit week in my house, inspired by A World in My Kitchen by Peter Gordon (Hodder Moa, 2003). He often has interesting flavour combinations with modern takes on classics. Elevate your average biscuit in style. This one's all done in a food processor so not much effort needed. The chocolate, ginger and chilli really complement each other, and the nut is ideal to offset the ginger sweetness and add texture.

Makes 24-30

125 g butter, room temperature

120 b demerara sugar

1 egg

Easy chocolate mendiants

Posted by Bake Club on Friday, December 15, 2017, In : sweets 

Last year I made my own chocolate for mendiants. This Christmas I'm doing the cheat's version - just melted Whittaker's chocolate with colourful toppings. I've used pistachios, macadamias, toasted flaked almonds, toasted coconut, gojis, cranberries, blueberries, mango and pretzels. Any dried fruit or nut will do. You can spoon circles of chocolate onto trays lined with baking paper or just spoon into mini muffin tins, and top with your extras.
Super easy gifts to make.
