Chocolate Ingots

I made these last week to satisfy a HUGE chocolate craving. It worked like a charm :) They are very chocolatey. I used the optional caramelized cocoa nibs. At first I was skeptical because I thought they would still be bitter. I gave it a try anyway and I was glad I did. Let me tell you, these caramelized cocoa nibs are addictive. I couldn't stop eating them. It's my new snack now. I'm going to have to make them regularly.

I didn't make the bake-through recipe this week. My daughter had a horrible stomach virus and I had more than enough to deal with. Besides, I didn't have the heart to make the cheesecakes and tell her she couldn't have any.

Gâteau Breton

When I read Rose's description of this cake, I had to make it. She had me at shortbread. I absolutely love shortbread. It was a very easy cake to make. I made it for my mum for Mother's Day. My brother's first comment when he ate it was "it tastes like shortbread" and I didn't even tell him what it was supposed to taste like. I will definitely make it again. It's worth every calorie.
