Nutella and Salted Caramel Cookies Recipe

The Great British Bake Off is back on! Whoo! Who watched it the other night, I'm excited about this series. This makes me want to get baking again, so I found this recipe and I just had to make them because of how amazing they looked. Nutella and caramel two of my favourite things so why wouldn't you want them in a cookie. This recipe is super easy as I've changed it from the original so instead of making the caramel you just simply pop a Rolo in the middle of them - simple.

110g Butter
350g Light brown sugar
2 Eggs
55g Cocoa powder
260g All-purpose flour
3/4 tbsp Baking Powder
100g Chocolate chips
8 tbsp Nutella
Caramel filled chocolate
Pinch of Salt

1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC.
2. In a medium heat pan, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and stir in the brown sugar and eggs.
3. Then add the cocoa powder and tiny pinch of salt and baking powder. Stir until all is combined.
4. Sift in the flour and stir until there are no lumps. Add the chocolate chips.
5. On a baking tray take a heaped tbsp of the dough. Make an indent with your finger and spoon in the Nutella then add a piece of chocolate to the top. To the top add a piece of flattened dough and press down to seal the edges. Then sprinkle some salt on top.
6. Bake in the oven for around 8-10 minutes.

Adidas Stan Smith

Adidas Stan Smith

I've always been a converse girl and I think I will continue to be a converse girl but, I've wanted a new pair of trainers for quite a while now but debating what to get in the end I decided to go for a pair of Adidas Stan Smith's. I've seen so many people with these, every fashion outfit on Pinterest seem to be wearing a pair of these, they seem to go with everything.

I think I've spent weeks trying to find the right pair, nowhere seemed to have my size or the correct colour. There was a bit of a mess up with asos sending the wrong size and then my size selling out. After no other stores having my size, I kept checking asos until I finally found a pair in my size and quickly ordered them before anyone else got them! In the end, I went for these, they are all white and I actually really like them I was going for light pink or blue but I actually prefer these in the end.

I've worn these a couple of times and so far they've been really comfy, comfier than my converse I think it's because the inside is leather, not clothes which I find rubs more. Even though they are extremely white now, I'm not really going to try and keep them this clean because I actually prefer the more worn in look on these - you know what I mean. Can you tell I'm not a fashion blogger? I feel like these may be getting worn more than my loved converse.

Here are some of my favourites

Penut Butter and Caramel Slices Recipe

I can't remember the last time I baked something, it was probably my creme egg brownies, I had some free time recently so I thought I'de bake these Peanut and caramel slices. I never use to be a big fan of Peanut Butter but over the past couple of months, I've started to really enjoy it. I found this recipe and thought they sounded so delicious so I had to attempt to make them. This does seem like you need a lot of things and a long recipe but it's actually really easy to make.


For the base: 
200g Plain Flour
1 tbsp Cornflour
100g Golden Caster Sugar 
170g Unsalted Butter
1/4 tsp Salt 

For the middle
60g Unsalted Butter
55g Brown Sugar 
400g Condensed Milk 
3 tbsp Golden Syrup 
2 heaping tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

For the chocolate top:
160g Milk Chocolate Chips
160g Dark Chocolate Chips
50g Unsalted butter
2 tbsp Smooth Peanut Butter

1. Preheat the oven to 180ºc and grease and line a square tin
2. Put the flour, salt, and sugar and keep adding the butter into a bowl and combine until the mixture is breadcrumb like. (You can do this by hand or using a food processor)
3. Put the breadcrumbs into the tin, make sure they are flat and in each corner. Bake for 35-40 minutes then leave to cool completely, may need to be put in the fridge.
4. Making the caramel - put the butter, sugar, and golden syrup into the pan and melt over a medium heat. Add the condensed milk then bring to the boil and stir constantly. Reduce to a medium-low heat and stir for a further 5 minutes until thickened. Then turn the heat off.
5. Warm the peanut butter in the microwave for around 10-20 seconds until slightly melted and stir into the caramel sauce.
6. Roughly chop the peanuts and spread them evenly over the shortbread base.
7. Pour the caramel over the peanuts and shortbread and leave to cool in a fridge.
8. Making the chocolate top - melt half the chocolate chips in a pan and then add the remaining chocolate chips and butter and continue to melt them. Melt 2 tbsp peanut butter in the microwave for 20 seconds.
9. Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel and level out. Add 3 parallel lines of peanut butter with a spoon then turn the tray 90º and with a skewer draw lines to create a marble effect.
10. Put in the fridge for about an hour until set. Then remove, cut and enjoy.
