Brownie with Swirl Cheese

Aunty is coming from KL with her little daughter, Jasmine. I know for sure, Jasmine will play with my eldest daughter, Megan. They are closed as relative and as friend since they are at the same age. I intend to bake something for her and my Aunty.

I still have the last block of cream cheese left in the fridge, so i decided to re-follow one of my favorite recipe. The cocoa taste rich that everyone love it! My husband even request me to bake another one on the following day, as he love cocoa a lot!

Please refer to my previous baked at Cream Cheese Brownie. You might be wondering why i named the same recipe differently, huh?? I wanted to try the marble effect, which i think i need practise. I pour 1/3 of the brownie batter into baking tray, following by cream cheese batter. Then, drop the balance of the brownie batter on top. Use plastic knife to draw swirl.

Horlicks Doggie

For my boy's sake, i bake again this tedious doggie cookies. See how noble i am, haha! He brought the cute doggies to kindergarten to celebrate children's day this morning. :)

Surprisingly, this time is much more faster and easier than last time. Maybe it's the magic of CO-OPERATION!!! waahaha... I made an exception last night, to let my kids "hands-on" to produce all the cute doggies.

I would like to share with you a secret! Shhh....
Now then i know, Milo妈咪和Horlicks妈咪生出来的狗狗,真的是有差别的!!!
Horlicks doggies just taste, somemore very sticky to teeth.
Milo doggies are so chocolatey.... too nice to resist!!!

For recipe, please refer my last baked Doggy Milo Cookies. I just substitute the milo to horlicks (with same amt)

Mini Chocolate Tarts

I miss pastry. I want something with chocolate. Here comes the mini chocolate tarts. :)
Trust me, the chocolate custard is very nice!!! Give this recipe a try!

But there's something troubling me..... i think this pastry (from my previous apple tart recipe) seems not so suitable for the chocolate custart! It's too easily "breakable" type of pastry.
You may try this mixture to form the pastry:-- melted butter mix with crushed biscuits. OR, use your favorite pastry recipe.
I made 18 mini tarts in two hours. Guess what! They are all finished within 1/2 hour. "You see, now you don't" haha.......

Mix and match recipe from Pink Lady :P

120g baking chocolate
3 tbls butter
1 tbl sugar
1 1/2 eggs

1. Melt the baking chocolate with butter using double-boil method. Let it cool, set aside.
2. Stir eggs and sugar, slightly beat.
3. Pour the egg mixture into cooled chocolate. Stir until combine.

Milo Muffin with Cheese Filling

Hsling's muffin recipes has never disappointed me! This muffin recipe has a very soft and fluffy texture. The original recipe use 2 tbls cocoa powder, but mine has finished, so i just substitute with milow powder.
It's sad that i am not very satisfy with its look. Other bloggers's cheese filling muffin looks nice; but, see mine? my cheese filling is not "hiding" in the center of the muffin, and the cheese never "burst out" from the top of the muffin..... :(
I guess i need to make a well in the muffin batter,to put in the cheese filling..... next time! Yes, next time..... to recover its original looks :)
