I completed the patchwork for these aprons so long ago that I can't remember the designer of the fabric. I bought one of those packs of squares and then filled it out with an Amy Butler print leftover from something-or-other. I made up two rectangles, originally planning to make an apron for me and another as a gift.
Now because I am wearing an apron and feeling all very domesticated, I thought I would share a recipe that is a favourite around here at the moment. It is a recipe for Rocky Road, as I remember making it when I was a child. It is so yummy, that I keep coming up with excuses as to why my children can't eat it...no, you haven't tidied your room, you've already cleaned your teeth, it's too late, you've had enough sweet things already today...all the more for me.
I pkt marshmallows
1/2 pkt jubes
A handful of almonds
1-2 handfuls of shredded coconut, toasted lightly in a dry frypan
I block of cooking chocolate, melted
Transfer to a container lined with baking paper. Pop in the fridge until set.
Cut into slices or squares. Most delicious.
