It was a strictly indoors day today. Rain tumbled and fell and just when it couldn't possibly bucket down any harder... it fell some more. While the boys ran riot and turned the place upside down, I casually relented to 'go with the flow'. And by nine o'clock this morning, I'd whipped up a tasty little something for the snack container. I found this nutty beauty in a Woolworths Fresh catalogue, with a whole bunch of other Easter themed goodies. But this one really took my eye, with it's pretty purple Cadbury background.
The flavours come together beautifully. And what I really love is there is no fussing with mixers and beaters or creaming butter and sugar etc... I'll be adding this one to the favourites roll. Super simple. Super quick to make. Super, super, sweet.
