Friday Sweet Treat No.1

Do you remember the Friday Cake Bake I used to do? Well, let me introduce you to the Friday Sweet Treat!!! Today's treats are Granny Smith apples (sharp and tart!) dipped in a generous amount of melted Belgian chocolate and covered in chocolate sprinkles.

I made sure that the chocolate coating is good and thick! As much as I love eating toffee apples these are much kinder on the teeth. Do you fancy making a Friday Sweet Treat? Have a lovely weekend. x

p.s. Thank you for all the encouraging comments left for me on my last post. I get the feeling that I am not alone in my thoughts and there are many like minded souls among you. Coventry seems to be a very crowded place!

Good idea but my front teeth are so fragile these days I dare not bite into an apple even a chocolate coated one and have to slice it first! Glad you won't be alone in Coventry - it's sounding like quite a fun place to be!!

Oh I remember your Friday cakes ... that was when I was new to blogging and I could never join in because I was working. You've inspired me to make something sweet and delicious today. Must get my recipe books out!
Love Kathy xxx

Sorry me again.
I've added a link to my patchwork tutorial if you want to give it a go, it really is easy.

ps. you've reminded me that I'm supposed to be baking bread, I'd better go get kneading!!

Its almost the weekend!

Oh my ... there goes my diet. *sigh* Ah well, I suppose as it's mostly apple and only a thin layer of chocolate, it counts as vitamin supplement and not as a sweet, doesn't it? ;-)

Your chocolate coated apples look wonderful, Simone, what a good idea. Unfortunately, like Jane I can't bite into apples easily anymore - I have to slice them or chop them into a fruit salad. I loved your Friday cake bakes and you inspired me to bake too - it was great fun:)

Thank you so much for your kind words and I'm very glad that you were led to my blog at this difficult time in my life. I have found some very wonderful people in blog land and when I met them, they were just as I thought and we've become great friends. It's great being a blogger :D

Oh my goodness, Simone!! What a delicious idea!!!!

Hi Simone
The quilt is all by hand, probably bind and quilt with the machine.

Have a go at smaller hexagons first, far less tricky, and quick too.
Once you understand how it works, you will realise how easy it really is!

Have a good evening
