Chocolate Chilli Triangles Recipe

Ingredients:

100g Dark choc chips

275g Golden caster sugar

165g Dairy free spread

1tbsp Cocoa powder

A sprinkle of Chilli Flakes

A pinch of Salt

5 Eggs

2tbsp of Ground Almonds

Edible golden glitter

Method:

This recipe is one of our favourites: these are Chocolate Chili Triangles. What’s great about this recipe is
that it is gluten free and it is dairy free. So if you’ve got friends who have got a special diet, this is a real top
treat for them. It’s also a very straightforward recipe.

In a heatproof bowl we are putting 100 g of dark
chocolate chips, 275 g of golden caster sugar, 165 g of dairy free spread, 1 big tablespoon of cocoa
powder, a sprinkle of chili flakes and a pinch of salt. This is simply going over some boiling water on the
stove until it’s melted down and we can mix it together.

The second part of the recipe is to whisk together 5 eggs. Once we’ve whisked the eggs together, we’re going to add two tablespoons of ground almonds, and once our chocolate mix is melted, combine the lot together and
bake it in the oven. Just fold it in, for even consistency.

Take a square baking tray, line it with parchment paper, and simply pour in the chocolate mix. This then goes into the oven at a 180°C or 350°F for 35 min.

Take the tray out the oven and allow to cool, then lift the parchment out of the tin.

Now is time to make your chocolate chilli sparkle and shine. Spray the golden glitter across the top of the square, covering it and then cut it into triangles.

They’re certainly something special. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas from Hen Corner and Omlet.

Amaretti Biscuits Recipe

Ingredients:

180g of Ground Almonds

120g of Golden Caster Sugar

Grated Zest of a Lemon

A Pinch of Salt

A tot of Amaretti liquor

2 Egg Whites

1 tbsp. of Honey

1 Handful of Flaked Almonds

Sprinkle of Icing Sugar

This recipe has a special Italian twist to it, It’s an Amaretti biscuit, lovely and chewy on the inside with flaked almonds on the outside, very quick and easy to make. We love this recipe as it uses contributions from both the bees and the chickens at the Hen Corner Urban Farm.

Pour all of your ground almonds into a mixing bowl and add the golden caster sugar. Add the grated zest of a lemon and a pinch of salt. Then we make this biscuit festively merry with a lovely little tot of Amaretti liquor. Give that a good mix with a wooden spoon.

Put that to one side.

Then in a separate bowl mix two egg whites with a tablespoon of honey. It’ll start to look similar to a meringue consistency.

You are then going to fold the egg whites into your almond mix.

You want this evenly combined and then you’re going to pipe it onto a baking tray that’s lined with parchment paper.

Coat the piped formations in flaked almonds and icing sugar before baking in a moderate oven for about 15-20 minutes.

You can either plate them up to pass around on a tray ready to be enjoyed or you

wrap them up with a bit of ribbon to make cute edible decorations, ready to hang them from the Christmas tree.

We hope you have a go at making these yourself, they’re really quite simple and really rather special.

Merry Christmas from Hen Corner and Omlet
