Happy Christmas Eve! Hard to believe that Christmas is here, so exciting! Claire has arrived and I am excited, as we have an afternoon of baking planned (we should probably get on that!) When I was working on my Christmas baking, I sent Claire a bunch of recipes and asked her to choose one. She choose this one. It was a nice break from all the cookies; squares are so easy and so delicious.
I skipped the nuts, as you know, nuts aren’t a hit in our family. Also, I used some milk chocolate chips (goes without saying really). These squares are delicious, not really Christmas-y, but certainly a welcome addition to any tray of sweets.
Really, what is there not to love about a cake with skor pieces and apple? It’s like a caramel apple with cake, perfect! I have been making this cake for a while and I think it is a nice afternoon tea cake, breakfast cake, midnight snack cake, you know a go-to kind of a cake. It doesn’t have icing so it almost feels healthy;) This is the last of the baking from S.’s 30th birthday party. Needless to say there was enough baking there for two more parties, so he was eating birthday treats for weeks.
The recipe is available here. I didn’t include the white chocolate chips, mainly because I forgot. I think it would be tasty with milk chocolate chips, but then again, I add them to everything so I may be biased.
