Treat Day // 'Milk & Cookies'


Happy Saturday lovelies!

This morning Rhi & her little sister (Ellie) were talking halloween costumes and she suggested Little M go as a cookie (AW!) - because of this Rhi couldn't get visions of yummy cookies out of her head and had to raid the kitchen for ingrediants to rustle us up some treats. Despite our scantly stocked cupboards (tomorrow is 'food shop' day!) - we managed to find half a large bar of Cadbury's Bournville tucked in the back of the candy cupboard so we came up with Bittersweet Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

& as cookies simply have to be served with milk (we think its a law in some countries, maybe... ok, it should be at least!) so we thought we'd make a super delicious & special smoothie to compliment - Strawberry & Rose Smoothies.

Bitter Sweet Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies...


125g Plain Flour
125g Golden Caster Sugar (most would probably prefer more sugar, but as Little M was getting to share we cut down a bit - still taste scrummy!)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Bicarb Soda
80g Melted Butter
1 egg
100g Dark chocolate (roughly chopped)
Splash of Vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 170*C (about 335*F-ish!) & line a tray with baking parchment
2. Sift together the flour, soda & salt
3. In a seperate bowl cream the butter and sugar, add the egg + vanilla
4. Mix in the flour to the sugary batter.
5. add your chunky chocolate chips
6. Spoon heaped table spoon sized blobs of cookie dough onto the baking tray
7. Bake for about 10/12 minutes (until the sides start to look crispy)
8. Leave to cool for a few minutes before transfering onto a wire rack to cool (but everyone knows cookies are best served warm from the oven, when the chocolate is still melty, oh yes!)

These are really yummy cookies, only take about 25 minutes too so a perfect speedy Saturday treat!

Strawberry & Rose Smoothies

Handful of strawberries (we literally only had about 8 or 9 tiny little super sweet ones left!)
Monin's Rose Sirop
Plain Yoghurt

This recipe was a bit of an improv as well (most things usually are in the Twee kitchen!) - hull the strawberries and put into hand blender appropriate jug/smoothie maker/blender whatever you're using, pour over some rose sirup, top with milk & yoghurt (we literally only had some 'muller corners' in so added the yoghurt part from that!) - whizz it all up.... and enjoy!


We think its pretty safe to say that Little M enjoyed our Saturday Treats... and would probably be down with being a cookie for Halloween too! Hehe!

Hope you enjoy the rest your weekends sweets!

Much love
R&L xx
