Most of today has been spent in the kitchen making cheesy masks and chocolate masks for the Masquerade ball tonight.
For the cheesy masks we used Nigella's cheesy feet recipe which we have blogged about before. It is a fab recipe. Mostly because it is very tasty but also because it is a fun, and a relatively economical, way to introduce savory snacks at a party. I was not keen to make chocolate chip cookies as well, as I could see the morning slipping away from us, and was also concerned that we would spend ages using the cookie cutter only to find the cookies spread out in the oven so I googled "Chocolate chip cookie recipe that does not spread" I landed up using almost a whole additional cup of flour but the end result is pretty tasty! Also I didn't have any chocolate chips so I had to chip up a bar of plain chocolate which made them harder to cut out than the cheesy ones. The Daddy One stacked up the finished masks on the plates. Can you tell we have an engineer in the family? This is where we bought the mask cookie cutter from.
