So today has been punctuated by delays and minor, first world inconveniences… I got stuck in every traffic jam on every journey (in the van that works, is safe and I can afford), they didn’t have any of the books I wanted at the book shop (so I ordered them and they’ll be in tomorrow probably) the guys at the tip charged me for getting rid of some stuff (which is fine as seriously how else am I going to get rid of insulation off cuts) anyway… I came home and just needed to make something… NOW!!! Something I could do while sorting out the kitchen and other little jobs.., something yummy! So, given that chocolate gives me migraines welcome to the world ..,
160g caramac buttons
120g plain flour
80g broken caramac buttons
Turn oven to 180c
Melt the butter and the 120g of caramac
Beat the eggs and the sugar together and add to the cooled melted stuff. Mix up properly and add the flour mixing that properly too.
Pour into a lined baking tray 20x30x5 ish and scatter the remaining buttons over.
Bung in the oven for 20-25 mins.
Cool a bit a cut into very small pieces
Read through the ingredients list every time you want one just to remind yourself that they are not in any way low calorie and then go ahead and eat one very small piece, mindfully!
Anyway now to go pick the girl up!
