Coffee Kisses

It struck me that its a while since I have had any baking on my blog and its not because I haven't been baking. Its just that its been pretty standard run of the mill baking.

Today, Rascal announced that she wanted to do some baking. When asked WHAT she wanted to make, she had a quick think and said "Bisss-kits!".

A search of the pantry showed that I didn't have all of the necessary ingredients for most of our usual biscuits, so I pulled out the cookbooks looking for inspiration. 

Finally, I opened my old recipe book in which I started to collate recipes way back when I was still at school. Flicking through the pages I smiled as I saw the neat handwriting that hadn't been ruined by scrawling down notes at university.

My eyes rested on the recipe for Coffee Kisses. We had ALMOST everything in house (the only alteration that was necessary was to stick them together with cocoa flavoured icing instead of coffee flavour. Maybe I should call them mocha kisses!)

My trusty assistant decided that the biscuits that she made should be sausage shaped instead of balls, there's nothing like a bit of creativity when your baking!
And the verdict... a unanimous YUM! Maybe I should check out more of the recipes that I wrote out way back when.

If anyone is interested in the recipe, I am quite happy to convert it from imperial weight measurements and write it up here).

Have you entered my giveaway?


  1. I still have the recipes from my home ec classes at school when 16. Yes they are still in my school girl handwriting, man it was neat back then, I really should look at getting them sorted into a more secure binded book that will keep them as is for ever.

  2. Great idea to use chocolate icing! These sound yum and a great activity to do with your daughter!

  3. I love the sausage shaped kisses! Very creative!! :)
