I am back!
Actually I didn’t tell you that I would be gone in the first place. But I was enjoying some days in the wonderful Graubünden.
And that’s what wonderful Flims looks like:
Yup, so I am super relaxed. Because we walked every morning (I would like to say hiked but I guess a 2-3 hour walk doesn’t qualify for this just yet) and lazed around the spa area and the heated pool all afternoon. Heated pool in summer you say? Yeah, up 1081m it ain’t 30°. I know. I am spoiled. Ooo and have I told you about the 5-course meals in the evening? I am sure I gained at least 3kg, but hey, that’s the price I have to pay. Gladly, I think.
So let’s move on.
Having had just the most indulgent days of the past year, you’d think I would start cooking fruity, healthy snacks? Nope, not me. I went for a double chocolate filled with chocolate treat. Because I thought I had to add some sort of healthy ingredient I added some chopped cherries. Not that healthy, but well, I tried.. 🙂
The reason for this treat isn’t just that I am a glutton, it’s also because coming home yesterday I got these cute little baking-tins delivered. Ooo the joy! Beyond description.
One of them is basically the size of a quarter of a normal sized cake. Perfect I thought. So here they are, my calorie bombs
1. Mix the butter, egg, cram and coffee. Preheat the oven to 180° and place the tray in the middle for 15-20 minutes. Cut into cubes and sift icing sugar on top if desired.

62.5g all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder
4 cherries, chopped
A pinch of salt
A few bits of white chocolate (I used white chocolate with hazelnut brittle)
2. Add the flour and all ingredients until the salt and mix well.
3. Spoon into the prepared tray.
4. Place the chopped white chocolate bits on top of the mixture. Slightly push down.

I must admit, I still need some practice cutting these into squares. Right now it looks more like left-overs from a cake feast. Oh well..
So I’ll be heading over to Angie’s place for her Fiesta Friday Feast. Hope you’re ready for my double chocolate cherry treats, because they are HEAVY!
Ooo I almost forgot. Here is the proof that my squares were actually liked, even in raw form. 😉 Happy Fiesta Friday everyone!
