snow, sledges and gooey brownies

J loves snow.  He is happy rolling in it, chasing it and eating it.  He just loves snow

Spotty dog has never seen snow before.  We let her out whilst is was snowing last night, but she didn't seem at all bothered.  This morning she discovered that she could eat snow and so spent most of the morning running round to eat up the snow.

Having spent all morning out in the snow the girls needed to warm up.  We decided to go inside and make some of our Nutella brownies

My youngest seemed to really enjoy baking with Nutella, although more of it seemed to be eaten than used for brownies.  We decided to add in some crushed ginger biscuit so give it a richer taste.  I think my eldest just wanted to hit the biscuits with the rolling pin [Yes that is a spotty dog trying to help with the baking]

We got creative with our brownies and turned them into cups.  It seemed fitting with it cold outside to have some hot chocolate and this seemed a fun way to warm up.  By placing an empty bun try inside the bun tray with brownie mix in, the brownie cooks round the outside creating a cup shape.

The brownies made a great cup shape, but we had to be careful to remove the top tray in case it had got stuck.  I tidied up the edges before removing them from the tray.

I decided to add a ginger biscuit onto the bottom of each cup, just to give it a bit more stability.  I stuck it on using the gooey off cuts from the edges.

Our cups were now ready for our hot chocolate.  

I decided to treat the girls to some of the new Gü hot chocolate.  Gü Puds have recently launched a new range of Gü hot chocolate.  The Gü hot chocolate comes in a 750ml carton and is priced at £1.99.  The Gü hot chocolate can then be enjoyed cold or warmed in the microwave for hot chocolate.  I warmed it a little for the girls and sprinkled some marshmallows on top.

The girls loved their warming treat, perfect for the snowy weather.

After they had warmed up it was back outside to play in their sledges.

We had lots of fun playing in the snow and of course we had to have a sledge selfie
