I really didn’t have to hunt around for too long to find this month’s Secret Recipe Club recipe. I was paired up with the lovely laden from Sew You Think You Can Cook. A blogging Momma from Los Angeles with 2 beautiful boys. Lauren’s blog is predominantly food inspired, with a healthy addition of craft and travel in there too.
Lauren is currently taking part in Choctoberfest through October (obviously) so many of her posts are chocolate inspired. Her recipe for Halloween White Chocolate & Raisin Bars posted just last week, caught my eye and I knew the Costello girls would like to try it.
I only made a slight change to the original post – I used a very thin covering of white chocolate with Halloween inspired chocolate beans as decoration on the top. This was a really quick recipe and perfect for after school snacks. My girls are full of colds at the moment and feeling a bit sorry for themselves – we are desperate for a break from school madness. An after school easy traybake was just the thing to cheer them up. Not that half term is going to be any less chaotic – Millie is training pretty much constantly in Aldershot and then competing in Glasgow next weekend.
