    Hazelnut Butter Biscuits! Just love, love, LOVE hazelnuts ;) Do you have a favorite, Emma?

    I think I might have read every single post you did this year, which is probably a bit weird! But the chocolate caramel sauce sounded almost too good to be real. Saying that treacle flapjacks sound pretty good too...

  4. Everything looks so mouthwateringly good...how to choose?!
    Happy New Year, Emma - I hope that 2014 is a great year! x

  5. Happy New Year! A great lineup of delicious treats, excited to see more from you in 2014!

  6. Happy new year! I love those chocolate champagne truffles. Both are my favourite things, and well together, they have to be a very, very good thing indeed!

  7. Happy New Year Emma! I've made both your chocolate sauce and treacle flapjacks and can attest to the fact that both are delicious. Definitely not under the radar in my household :-)

  8. Emma, so much goodness here, it's hard to pick! I need to make the choco-caramel sauce for sure. Just last week I made both sauces, but never thought to make them as a blend. Brilliant.
    I hope 2014 treats you right Emma. Sending much love your way.

  9. I made this and found it to be not quite sweet enough. Not sure if I messed something up or if my tastebuds are just a little off. Thanks for the recipe, though!

  10. I made these and used the recipe for puff pastry that you attached. Although the process was long, it was relaxing and rewarding: well worth the effort! These palmiers were absolutely delicious. Thanks so much!

  11. Sorry to hear you didn't think it was sweet enough - were your bananas very ripe? They're much sweeter when they're very ripe.

    than 10 years and he have been getting rich everyday and even giving me
    money but he never told me the secret of his success until a day i was
    frustrated to let him know that he should help me also that was when he
    open up to me and tell me that he was a member of the Illuminati that he
    have been in the court for more than 10 years that his riches and
    protection came from this court.so i told him to let me be into the court
    but it not an easy task to be a member but i was finally initiated into the
    devil church of the Illuminati and i was confirm in there church. after a
    month of being a member of Illuminati i got promotion that same month in my
    working place and within a year i was promoted thrice in my working place

  19. Hello friends, an awesome and amazing testimony
    about a Great spell caster i really love to share. My name is Jerry Mike
    from the United States. Getting my wife back is what i least expected
    and could never imagine. I and my wife have been married for five years
    and we have been living happily but all of a sudden she changed
    completely and turned away from me and i never knew what was going on, i
    tried to ask her but she refused to tell me what the problem is, and as
    time went on she sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused,
    and i did all my possible best to get her back but it was all in vain
    and i thought all hope was lost, and during my search for a way out, a
    friend of mine who had similar problem told me about a great spell
    caster called Great Ovoko who helped him to solve his problem. I never
    to believe in spell casting in my entire life because i never thought
    it will work but i tried to give this
    man a chance and to my
    greatest surprise, he did his work and it yielded a positive result and i
    was able to get my wife
    back. Even after the spell caster did his work, i discovered that my
    fell so much in love with me like never before. This spell casting
    isn't brain washing but he opened up her eyes to see how much i love and
    needed her, and now i am a happy man again
    and so i am using this opportunity to
    tell anyone having similar problem to visit him on Ovokolovespell@gmail. com
    and he will help you because he is so real, trust worthy and powerful.
    Once again thank you Great Ovoko and may your gods always reward you for
    your good deeds.
