Santa Hat Brownie Recipe

I think these are adorable and arguably healthy (its christmas after all), but I am not very good at baking at all and I attempted to make these following the recipe on the Oh sweet basil blog but they were a big fail! So here is the Santa Hat brownies on her blog as I'm sure they are very lovely I am just not very good a t baking so here is my take on this recipe in a much more basic and less home made way. You will need:
  • Brownie ready made mix
  • Punnet of Strawberries
  • 110g Butter
  • 500g Icing sugar
  • 60ml Milk
  1. It is as simple as that so get a bowl and make the brownie ready made mix as it says on the box as every recipe is different. Then put that in the oven to cook as the instructions say.
  2. Next you need to make your butter icing which is the white bit of the Santa hat. Add the butter and icing sugar into a bowl and then whisk with either an electric whisk or with hand whisk until smooth. Add in milk to loosen the mixture if necessary adding it in bit by bit.
  3. When you take the brownies out the oven leave them until they are room temperature other wise the butter icing will melt.
  4. When the brownies have cooled down cut them into little squares around the length of your thumb.
  5. Take your strawberries wash them and then cut the stalk off so the end is completely flat.
  6. Put a dollop of the butter icing on the brownie which will act as a glue and the bottom of the Santa hat. Next put your strawberry on the icing with the tip pointing upwards. Then add a little dollop on the top of the strawberry point, I used a piping bag to get a pretty pattern. Then you have you Santa hat brownies, I honestly love these so much you wouldn't believe!

Big City Adventure!

Throwing it all the way back to boxing day but rather then spending the week after christmas at home doing nothing, this year myself and my family decided to fly out to Chicago and stay in a hotel for a few days and be proper tourists around the big city. I stayed at the Sheraton Grand hotel which is quite central in the city your not in manic rush of the magnificent mile which is just a mile long road of shops which is spent probably too much money in but you have everything around you like restaurants slightly less busy shops, Starbucks (on every street corner).
I was my first time in Chicago and it did not disappoint. We were only there for seven days so we packed everyday full of fun and sight seeing including Ice skating, John Green aquarium and we went up the 360 Chicago building which is the second highest building in Chicago ad myself and my Dad did the tilt. The tilt for those who don't know, is where you stand up against a panel of glass facing out of the building and t…

November Favorites

This is my November favourites its actually quite a short one this month but I guess I have been using my normal products and stuff but these thing I have been loving on another level!!!

Avon Nail varnish So it's almost Christmas and I think this nail varnish is very festive and sparkly without being too much considering it's not even December yet. It's from Avon and I bought this nail varnish roughly this time last year but I feel like I have rediscovered this product and I am constantly wearing it right now. It is made up of lots of glitter in silver, gold and black, together they make such a nice shimmery colour. They do still sell this at Avon for £3.00 however they changed the names and shades slightly but I love all of them and I think I might have to purchase some more.

T Mug This past month I have been loving this mug, it has a T on it for my name and I've been enjoying tea and hot chocolate out of it. I'm not sure where it came from as it was a present from…

Christmas Throwback

So I have gone through Facebook and all the laptops in the house to look for all our old christmas December photos with a Christmas theme so here are the findings. Looking at these pictures have really made me smile, we did have some more but I just can't find them.

This is super bad quality but I think was two years ago at Broadditch farm when we went to buy a tree, we had a look round the shop and myself and my mum decided that we wanted to take a selfie in these super cool glasses.

This is 2012 when we decorated the living room and bought new decorations, I love this picture it makes me feel so cosy.
I love this collage I made two years ago I think and Cooper my dog was being super cute and he got lots of presents on Christmas day.
This is in 2011 and we had snow in December but not christmas day. This was like the beginning of December and we went to a winter wonderland somewhere and they had like a little zoo bit then we went and bought ice cream. Also I am now realizing how…
