new record of -8.9 degrees (15.9 fahrenheit)...nothing better than to waste away the day inside trying to re-make the famous NZ squiggle, the 'biscuit with butter toffee notes, a touch of fruit and a hint of prunes at the end, the delicate edge gives it a frilly, harmless look that can lure the unwary into consuming large amounts in one sitting; gnawing the squiggles while trying to maintain a casual sitting position is often not possible'..especially when you have been indoors all day.

WARNING: do not attempt to do this unless you have an entire day to waste away..this project was rather time consuming..eating away into my board game time. which can leave someone feeling quite distraught.
first up, making the biscuit base..this had to sit in the fridge for 2 hours before cutting the shapes
while the biscuits cooked i made hokey pokey..this gooey, shiny mess is the result..trust me, once hardened it's a yummy yummy little treat
once the hokey pokey had set and the biscuits had cooled, i crushed the hokey pokey (saving the remains for snacking), and pressed it into the butter cream icing
once the icing had hardened, i melted up a combo of milk and dark chocolate buttons and dunked the whole biscuit in..then..once that had set, i melted white chocolate and piped on some fat squiggles...then i ate them..and tried to remain still while playing monopoly..
..and fighting Bella for the prime position in front of the fire. Bella - 10: Paula - 0

next project: Anzac Biscuits, a ' structurally sound biscuit, reinforced by the presence of high tensile oats and coconut, which may cause alarm in the un-suspecting and less sophisticated biscuit consumer. These are the only biscuit in the world with their own public holiday'.
