Baking Frenzy and Bo Bunny blog hop winner!

I now realise why i was blessed with such a big family - its so that when i bake i dont have to eat everything by myself!! Do you know what size i would be right now if i had to eat all ive made today! First off was a huge batch of Leek and Potato cream soup, Victoria sponge cake, a tray of caramel chocolate shortbread, mint chocolate crisps - im never buying After Dinner Mints again thanks to a lovely lady on MSE for the recipe (so easy....smash up a roll of Extra Strong Mints and add it to a melted 200g bar of dark chocolate, turn out onto a baking sheet, spread thinly and let harden before smashing ...try not to eat all at once! Go on you know you want to at least try easy and so delicious!)
Chocolate and mixed nut cookies...same cookies but rounded, flattened and covered with chocolate and vanilla sugar for the boys :)
If you would like the recipies for anything on my blog just drop me a line :)

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Bo Bunny black Friday blog hop!
It was so much fun and i hope you enjoyed it as much as i did :)
