  • “Classic afghans. Only problem with these is that they don´t sit around long enough to ice!”

  • “Isn’t it funny – such simple childhood food still tastes so great & is so easy to make.Another victory for the Edmonds Cookbook!I made these today for my partner to take to work over the next week (saves buying choccie bars), it’s just such a simple recipe and takes so little time.The only difference was that I didn’t put walnut halves on the icing as he doesn’t like them, but I don’t think they’re the same without the walnuts.Thanks for posting Evie*, you saved my bacon ‘cos I couldn’t find the Edmonds Cookbook this morning.”
