TWD: Midnight Crackles
Regular readers of my blog know that I don't get along very well with chocolatey pastries and I'm also quite sure that it will never be my BFF. So out of the four TWD recipes chosen for the month of January, midnight crackles is at the top of my "not-to-bake" list as I know that I won't like it. But when I opened my Google Reader this morning and saw Laurie's post about TWD having its 3rd anniversary, I got up from the sofa and headed straight for the kitchen. And in 2 hours time, I had 1/4 batch of freshly baked cookies in front of me. So why did I change my mind? Well, I've been taking part in TWD for almost 3 years, and so I see no reason why I should miss out on participating on its anniversary day!
Rich and strong with chocolate flavour, these midnight crackles would serve as a perfect snack for die-hard chocolate fans, but it's just too chocolatey for me. So if I were to bake these cookies again, I'd definitely add some nuts or dried fruits so as to distract myself from the overpowering chocolate flavour.
