Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Tomorrow is valentines day. And I am jobless. So I decided to bake my boyfriend something - at first it was just going to be simple truffles, but I quickly discovered that we were out of a few key ingredients for them. Of course.

These were tasty and surprisingly simple - though you have to wait an hour or two for the dough to chill.

Psst. Here is the recipe.

I didn't put the extra cup of chocolate chips in after the dough was mixed because I thought that was plenty enough chocolate.

WARNING! 36 Servings is a complete lie. This recipe made about 80 small cookies. So I suggest halving it or making bigger cookies... I don't think my concept of an 'inch' is that much smaller than theirs but my god so many cookies.

Leaf Clutch

Some of you might have heard about the Sewing With Nature contest that was held throughout January (I hope you have heard, considering the post just below me is all about it. Keep up guys, jeez). The results haven't been posted yet, but the contest is closed and I can post the bag I made.

It took me a long time to come up with something to do, but then the answer was clear - a clutch! In the shape of a leaf, specifically. Because I am completely bollocks at making my own patterns, it took a long time to put together. But I finally completed it. Huzzah!

Cheers :)
