Finally Back!

And it feels so good :D – I missed you all! I missed the foodie community, the commenting and checking out hundreds of wonderful delicious posts :)

All's well that ends well? We'll see...

All’s well that ends well? We’ll see…

I guess you want and deserve an explanation – let me tell you in a little series:

1. I went on holiday for  a week – my school term finished, I needed a break so I had an awesome time chilling out (literally it was snowing!) in Tasmania :)

2. I actually have 3 weeks’ worth of exams starting in 1 1/2 weeks time so I have to study more than cook (*sigh*)

3. My mum was dominating the kitchen after our arrival back in beautiful Sydney so I only had proper access until today – YAY! :D

bunny 15
So now you know that although I am posting now, my posting will not be too regular for a while – the things I do for school, honestly! ;)

Post time? I think I have made you wait too long already :)

*****************************************************************************

So before I left, I actually won a giveaway – my first one ever and celebrating Easter :D :D :D
It was very exciting and hosted by one of my favourite blogs in the history of forever (many a recipe I make come from them!) – Exclusively Food!

bunny 1
As an appreciative gesture to the wonderful ladies at this blog, Amanda & Debbie, I decided to do a combination post from the two things I won – a gorgeous bunny cookie cutter (too cute!) and some bunny moulds (too awesome!) :) – Plus, after such an absence I think all of you, my friends and foodie inspirations, deserve more than one recipe!

bunny 2
Thank you Amanda & Debbie – here is what I made using your fabulous giveaway :)

Firstly, I decided to use the cute lil bunny moulds, despite Easter being a week old (Bunnies are fabulous all year round ;))
What was my idea? Ganache swirled bunnies – A mixture of white and dark chocolate ganache swirled inside the bunny and refrigerated till set before devouring… not one for admiring beauty am I? ;)

bunny 6
This would have worked perfectly if

  1. I had read the instructions properly and greased and refrigerated the moulds before use (oops!)
  2. Not used white chocolate which does not set as well as dark chocolate (oops!)

bunny 11
If you look really hard, you will see little beautiful lines from the bunny mould – the snouts of the bunny have become a delicious white chocolate ganache treat AND perhaps.. a little.. um… unrecognisable *sheepish smile :)*

 

At least the white chocolate makes their snout look fluffy... ;)

At least the white chocolate makes their snout look fluffy… ;)


But that is ok – Next time (I promise there will be a next time) if I am swirling, I will not make ganache and just swirl normal chocolates together.

OR

Next time, I will use all dark chocolate ganache and put a little surprise inside before refrigerating – anything is possible with bunny moulds :D

Second part of the prize was my cute bunny shaped cutter. I just scream with cuteness overload looking at it – EEK!

bunny 13
I was planning to make roll out brownies but then decided to dig around in my old recipe cabinet, searching for the perfect Autumn cookies. And I found them. And altered them. Oh yea :)

Spiced Craisin Honey Biscuits. Shaped like bunnies.

bunny 12
It actually does not get better than this :D

What gives these cookies (originally simple honey cinnamon biscuits) such Autumn-y perfection? The honey subtly leaves a thrilling aftertaste while working with the spices to create an aromatic yet sweet biscuit, also providing a soft texture. The slight tartness of the craisins balance out the biscuit perfectly.

bunny 10
Even though I gave up chocolate for honey, you can see I was happy :D

The exact changes I made in this recipe were

  • Using not only cinnamon, but 1/4 tsp of nutmeg and allspice too
  • Adding in approximately 1 cup craisins
  • Adding a drop of vanilla essence

So here are my recipes for you – yes, I know the ganache bunnies were not perfect but the taste was exquisite because let us all admit it out loud amongst each other

“Ganache is the best part of any diet… I mean cake” - Now repeat after me :D

While I was away, I was also thrilled to receive five more awards :D – Thank you to all these fantastic bloggers!

Laura @ Sprint 2 The Table presented me with what I like to call, The Smorgasbord Award – a mishmash of lots of blogger awards into one – Thanks so much :) – Laura is the creator of healthy but indulgent desserts – she is a miracle worker!
To honour the tradition that Laura has created to accompany this award, the rule is to list ten things about yourself but one of them is not true – you, my readers, have to figure out the false coin of the lot :D


Here goes:

1. I have taken jazz dancing for seven years

2. I have a double jointed thumb

3. I love the smell of sausages frying

4. My first crush ever was Aladdin

5. I prefer rain to sunshine

6. I want to be an interior designer when I grow up

7. I love writing history essays

8. I hate the Terminator movies

9. Rock music beats hip hop for sure!oesfj

10. I favour ice cream over any other dessert, including chocolate

Can you guess which one is untrue??? ;)

Secondly, Lisa @ Sweet 2 Eat Baking awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award – too sweet (pun intended of course :D) – Lisa has some of the most beautiful food photographs ever – every cake, every cookie I wish I could grab off the screen!
You can find the rules at her awesome website or here – since I have just told you 9 true facts, I think I have completed the requirements :) – Much appreciated :)

efesf
I was most thrilled to receive the Versatile Blogger Award also from a very talented baker friend of mine, Jennie @ The Messy Baker – she is bright, bubbly and nothing she bakes or cooks turns out messy, believe me :D – Same as above, you can find the rules at her awesome website or here!

versatilebloggeraward
Anne @ Anne Sture Tucker awarded me The Liebster Award – It is much appreciated my friend :D – Recently discovered, Anne has such an awesome style – her cooking makes me so hungry I cannot even tell you!
The set of rules can be found on Anne’s fantastic blog or here – thank you again :)

blog award

Lastly (but not least-ly), food lover Jen @ Love Food Cook Food was sweet enough to award me the Fabulous Blogger Award! Thank you so much :D
If you have no visited Jen’s site, I do not even understand why you come to the computer – she has such an enormous cooking AND baking ability :)

blog award 2
I would now like to pass these five awards onto these fabulous bloggers :D -Warning: I went a little pass-on crazy ;) and did not count how many people I was adding to the list – to all on this list you can choose how many to pass on to :)

Congrats guys, you are all incredible :D

*****************************************************************************
Before I let you go (I know, I have written yet another insanely long post but seriously, I cannot seem to stop typing ;)), I need your help to settle a domestic dispute.

You remember JJ? She only recently popped up in March :)
Her and I both agree – omelettes are eaten with tomato sauce. It is normal to have sauce at breakfast. Sauce enhances the flavour.

Now you may be a little hazy about them but you will meet them again this year later on – PDS and TT – These two actually cannot understand eating sauce for breakfast. It is unheard of. It takes away from the flavour of the omelette.

Now we had a [mock] truly serious argument over this issue. I think the only way to solve it is to ask you, the most food oriented people I know with all the knowledge of food this world has to offer, to give your judgement. So just vote in this poll. Is sauce with omelettes therefore breakfast normal or not? (We’ll show them JJ!)

Thank you for your help with stopping World War III (or at least a sauce fight ;))
This poll will close after one week!

See you all again as soon as I can :D

    Welcome back Uru! I do miss my blogging friends as well whenever I go away on a trip! And yey, I got to find out your real name on the blog :)

  3. Aha! Now I get to know your real name! ;) Your experiments with bunnies is extremely funny but cute! When I get new tools for the kitchen, I can’t wait to try them out too and sometimes with disastrous results. But, I’m sure you’ll figure it out the next time! All the best for your exams! I’m sure the bunnies gave you a big hug for that ;)

    • Haha should I be scared you know now? ;)
      I am glad I am not the only one who has a tendency to stuff up in their excitedness! And I know I can do better next time :)
      They certainly did (well hugged my mouth anyway :D)

      Cheers

    wonderful job here, I know we’re friends on Foodbuzz, but only now did I get a chance to visit and I’m glad I did. The ganche bunnies might be something I will try- yum. Fun place and fun name, Choc Chip Uru :))

  6. Vacations are good! Love your bunnies–my kids would go nuts over them! (Now that my middle daughter is over her ‘I don’t eat bunnies’ phase where she saved a chocolate rabbit for years…)

    • They definitely are! These definitely are for your inner 5-550 yr old ;)
      Luckily your daughter is over that phase now – animal lover her but chocolate took over :D

      Cheers

    P.S. I voted no sauce! (Except for some hot sauce occasionally, if that counts.)

  8. kitchenriffs says:

    Welcome back! And just in time – I need my sweets! I was going through withdrawal. ;-) Nice post! Some really good, inventive stuff going on in your kitchen. Thanks so much.

    • Thanks my friend :D – Glad you enjoyed the cookies!

      Cheers

  9. Welcome back CCU! I am glad you had a chance for some R and R before all the insanity begins again. I think I might have stated a trend as I noticed now after my post featuring you everyone calls you CCU. It is quite a catchy name. Love all of your chocolate treats. Take Care, BAM

    • Haha thanks my friend – the R and R was definitely needed ;)
      You actually have! I love being called CCU and even leave it as my name when I comment sometimes – nice one ;)
      Glad you enjoyed the chocolate bunnies too and have a wonderful rest of week :D

      Cheers
      CCU

  15. Welcome Uru :) seems like you’ve had a great time away ~ I always like going to Tassie even if it’s just for a couple of days it’s so relaxing and serene there :D Glad to hear that you’re back though because now we get to read your posts!
    Don’t worry about being slow! I’ve been pretty slow too lately sigh…things can get so hectic honestly!

    WoW i love all the bunny recipes you came up with hehe they’re so cute the little bunny cookies :D

    LOL Can’t believe you started a poll with your friend ~ hahaha

      Haha glad I have no pressure to post ;) – sometimes life just catches up with you I swear honestly, it really has no right :P
      I am so glad you liked the cookies my friend! The bunniness is my favourite thing (and maybe the spices, honey and cranberries ;))

  18. Hi : ) for some reason your comments never show on my blog : ( I wonder what there is that I can do…can you tell me how you are leaving them so I can check into it? you can email me if you like ciaofraz (at) aim.com thanks, I am hoping to fix it, I seem to always find them floating around later and post them myself…weird, I know : D

    • I am actually really confusied my friend – I cannot even see the comments on your blog! When I leave a comment, I type in my nickname and URL – I am sorry they are causing so much trouble :(
      I am sure we will figure out the solution too though :) – I went through a phase where no one’s blog comments were appearing, confusing me totally! Now it is all better!
      Let me know if I can help in anyway :D

      Cheers

    Glad you’re back! Take a bit of a cooking break before you start cramming for those exams! Good luck with all of them!

    • Good to be back :D – I definitely cannot cram (worst crammer in history) so I am cooking and studying (more studying – I know I am not even lying :P) as much as possible together! Thanks for the luck – I’ll need it ;)

      Cheers

    Welcome Back! Loved this post, Uruashi (did I get that right? I apologize if I didn’t, these ol’ eyes aint what they use to be. )

    Glad to hear you got some time in the kitchen. Those “wins” are awesome! And you put them to creative use too!!!

    I’m going to remain neutral on the poll but I can”t wait to hear the results!

    Thank you so much for sharing…

    • It feels great to be back! And close, it is actually UrVashi (with a V not a U ;))
      Thanks for trying though! I love the wins too – it was so much fun using them!
      And I shall let you know the results soon (though maybe you could lean closer to my side ;))

      Cheers

  22. Little Housewife says:

    I have been away myself so I do understand you in every bit! Its nice to have a break and I really hope you enjoyed, the give away presents are too cute and even if it didn’t work out as you planned I bet they were a perfect bite. I did watch a really interesting show on the telly during Easter that involved loads of chocolate. The man (don’t remember his name, but he was a genius) said that when melting chocolate the tempering process is the key. I have not tried that myself, but it worked out pretty easy for him. The way it says on the net (I researched on how it temper) it looks to me way too complicated, but what he did was pour some melted chocolate to some cold surface (he used marble) and move it around with spatula until it started to set and then added to the rest. Anyways hope you enjoyed your time off, Best Wishes! Sending hugs!

    • I was wondering where you were – welcome back :D
      I did enjoy my break and hope you did too! I am glad you enjoyed this post my friend! Also thank you for all the interesting tidbits on chocolate – wish I could have seen this program :P
      I will definitely remember those tips on tempering – so helpful!

      Cheers

  23. The Cosy Creative says:

    This is such a cute post Choc Chip, it feels full of life and enjoyment and how cute are those bunny rabbit moulds! xx

    • Awww thank you – emphasising how fun life is is what blogging and baking etc are all about right? And I agree, nothing comes cuter and bunny moulds :D

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

  24. Too funny.. I was just reading through blogs thinking how I missed you and wondered where you’d gone.. Ta Da! Here you are! And once again I am transported into your world of beautiful sweet delicacies!! Love your bunnies today!

    • Awww my friend that is so sweet – I was lucky with internet in Tassie so I got to keep up with yours :D
      I am so glad to be back! And you are very kind to say such wonderful things :)
      Thank you for enjoying this post!

    Welcome back! Hope you had fun on your trip and good luck with your exams! Love your bunny treats – and I voted, but I won’t tell you how, you probably won’t forgive me. :)

    • I appreciate all your good wishes my friend :D
      It feels great to be back! Glad you enjoyed the little bunnies! And sigh… I guess I can make an exception and forgive ;) (I have magical guessing powers :P)

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thank you so much :D
      Haha yes poor us just under the equator ;) – though I envy your Spring, Autumn seems magical with all those falling leaves – beautiful for sure!
      And I am really getting friendly with honey :P

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Haha thank so much my friend :D
      Oooh nope sorry it is #8 – believe it or not I will shunt chocolate aside for ice cream (of course chocolate ice cream is the best of course ;))

  26. Beth says:

    What a post! Congratulations on all the blogging awards, and on the cute Easter goodies. I envy you your trip to Tasmania. I live in North America and I don’t know if I’ll ever get there, but it sounds wonderful.

    • Thanks my friend on all counts :D
      You should definitely not envy me my friend – though it was such an AWESOME trip I think living in North America so close to Disneylands everywhere would be a blast :)
      But feel free to take a looong plane ride and visit the beauty of Tassie!

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

  27. Reading your blog is pure joy. Love your style and charm!! I could spend all day reading and re-reading to make sure I didn’t miss a word. We are honored by the award! Goodness all around. (Insert big silly grin and batting of eyelashes.)

    Make those snickerscottis and you will know exactly what heaven tastes like. Thanks so much! Good to have you as a friend.

    • You are all to kind! Thank you so much :D
      And I am glad you deserved the award (Insert a hand with a glass toasting lemonade)
      Snickerscottis? Sorry totally confused! ;)
      I too love having you all as friends though and not confused about that at all!

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thank you for enjoying both :D
      And good choice! These biscuits dipped in some sweet tea are perfect to face the day!
      And I appreciate the good luckk my friend :)

    Congrats on the giveaway, awards, and vacation! I’m not usually very lucky when it comes to giveaways, but I did receive the Liebster and my hubby and I also just went on our own vacation (we were in New Orleans–so much fun)!

    • Thank you so much – this giveaway is actually my first one and my dad is the lucky one in the family ;) (genetic? Don’t think so :P)
      Congrats on receiving the Liebster my friend and your vacation sounds awesome – nice one :)

      Cheers

  29. Welcome back Uru, and congrats for all the awards!
    there is always an argument in our house as well when I serve ketchup with omelette. Except me Noone eats it. Actually I loveketchup, I even eat with Parathas, whT ever savoury.
    the cookies look beutiful .

    • Thank you so much my friend :D
      And you have taste – sauce is absolutely the best! I do not understand how people cannot – savoury and sauce are made for each other!
      Sorry excuse my rant :P
      Glad you enjoyed the cookies – they taste awesome dipped in sweet masala tea!

      Cheers

    Chip honey, you such a darling girl, thank you for awarding me such a lovely package of blog awards. What I love the most about you is that your work is infected with joy, you just love what you are doing and it literally shines through your pages! Lovely. Lovely. I am not terribly good with awards however I shall make an extra effort this week to include some blog links for us all to enjoy! You will be a fantastic designer when you decide to grow up! Don’t do the growing up too fast though, many of us are still working on it !.. c

    • Awww to sweet my friend – exactly why it was my pleasure to give you the awards package :)
      Thank you so much for such kind words! I can say the same if not more for you – your blog has become one of my favourites to read and every post makes me smile!
      There is absolutely no pressure on you to do blog awards (you must get so many :D) so I understand – also I really want to be my friend – from interior designer to event planner to wedding organisation…sigh…
      But I promise growing up is something I don’t think I will ever be able to do :)

      Cheers

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thank you my friend on both counts :D

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

  34. Welcome back sweet friend! I know you are busy these days and I am glad you went on vacation. We all need a break from our busy lives. Do not worry about your blog or your blogger friends, they will always be here. You are doing the right thing by prioritizing your studies.
    Your bunnies all look so tasty. This looks like a visit to the bunny farm, but better because it is an edible farm. The candies as well as cookies do have your creative trademark for making delicious goodies-yum! Happy Monday.

    • Thank you for understanding my situation :D
      Everyone says studies first so I guess it is right but why can I not feel the same way ;)
      Haha I like that – an edible bunny farm :P
      Glad you enjoyed your visit! You are too sweet! Have a wonderful rest of week my friend :)

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thanks my friend – and I agree wholeheartedly :D
      Best of luck to you for your exams! We feel each others pain now so we will feel the freedom together in a couple of weeks too :)

    First, welcome back! I’ve missed your posts! There was a hole in the foodie world while you were gone!

    And then thank you SO much for the awards!!! This was a great thing to wake up to today!

  37. Thrilled to hear you had a good break! Best of luck with all of your exams coming up. Congratulations on your prize and all of your wonderful awards! And no matter what your bunnies look like, I bet they still tasted incredible.
    Hmm, seems I am a fence sitter about the tomato sauce with an omelet! :-) Mandy

    • Thank you my friend :D
      You are very kind (and I need the luck :P)
      The bunnies, besides their muffled snout, did taste like the icing of a cake so totally worth it :)
      And I think you should lean over a weee bit on that fence (to JJ and my side preferably ;))

      Cheers

    glad you had a good holiday and fun in the kitchen with all your prizes. Well done on the awards, and thanks for sharing :) Good luck with the exams!

  39. Hello, it’s good to have you back and I love your bunny cookies. If we’d been here for Easter I’d have made these. I’m back from my son’s wedding in Senegal too so am getting back to posting. Good luck with all your school work.
    Try out these SNickers Bars from shelikesherfood.wordpress.com/2012/04 When you have time. They are amazing and have TWO chocolate layers!

    • Thank you very much my friend :D
      And ditto! I was wondering about your posts :)
      How exciting the wedding must have been – Congrats and hope it went wonderfully!
      Thanks for the luck (much needed) and the tip – homemade snickers bars? Dangerous but totally worth it ;)

      Cheers

  40. Wow! Very awesome! It sounds like you had a really great time. What a nice suprise to come back to your prize package!!!

    Im amazed there are so many similarities between us as I’m currently in Tassie myself visiting my folks! It’s freezing here! I had no idea you are an Aussie too :)

    Thank you so much for the nomination, greatly appreciated too!!!

    • It certainly was wonderful before and after :D
      And what a coincidence – I hope you are having fun! Tassie is beautiful! But definitely freezing for sure (we were up in Cradle Mountains for a few days!) – Nice to meet you fellow Aussie :)
      Your welcome my friend it is most deserved!

      Cheers

    • Thanks :D – you deserve this shout out and many more!
      And glad you enjoyed the cookies!
      How in the world did you guess??? I figured no one would get it but you know me too well :)

      Cheers

  41. I’m so glad your back! I was wondering what happened to you! I hope you had a wonderful time in Tasmania.

    And congrats on all your amazing awards, and winning that giveaway!

    These cookies are oh-so-adorable, and I love that you added more nutmeg and allspice. Well done!

    • Haha I disappeaared off the edge of the Earth (almost ;))
      Thank you very much my friend :D
      I am so glad you enjoyed these cookies (the extra spices gave it a nice kick :))

      Cheers
