Here's what I came up with:
I used purple vellum paper underneath, with green flowery paper on top (I love this green one!), and decorated it with a strip of dark metallic purple paper, and an embellishment that I made.
Then I just had to post something else that I made last night.....
And the good thing about these (besides their obvious yumminess of course) is that it only takes about 10 minutes to make!
So here's the recipe if you want to try it (which I strongly recommend). :)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 cups oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
5ml vanilla essence
Boil first 4 ingredients together for 5 minutes. Remove from stove, add last 3 ingredients and mix well.
Pour into greased glass dish and set in fridge (it doesn't take too long, I don't have a time on this recipe). Cut into squares when hardened. Best eaten within 2 days (they tend to get a little dryer and crumbly if left longer).
The original recipe says you must drop spoon-fulls onto a greased dish and allow to cool in fridge, to make little chocolate clusters....but I prefer them in blocks. :) Needless to say, these make super gifts! :D
