Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Last week I sent off this swap for the Glytter Kyttens - St Patrick's Day swap on Swap-bot. The shamrock brooch is made out of felt, I got the idea from Craftser then added my own flair to it. Unfortunately mine didn't arrive in time for today, but its ok, because I had my snazzy green shoes to wear any way...
Even my kitty - Týr decided to join in on the green action!
I decided to make an Irish themed dessert, and was inspired to try this Irish Cheesecake Slice shown on morning TV. I used dark Kit-Kat chocolate, and seeing as my sister doesn't like mint, I used Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur and coffee instead.
Now, if you desire to make this recipe, dont follow the part for the topping where it says mix the coffee granuals with the water, then add it to the chocolate! This means, as I am sure most of you would realise, stuffed up melted chocolate!! After doing this once...I should really learn to trust my instincts more... I just melted the dark chocolate topping and added a few coffee granuals to it then. It turned out rather rich, very creamy, only ok though, I doubt I would make it again.
