1 cup of Nutella (280g or 10 oz)
1 cup of plain flour
Extra Nutella for stuffing the cookies (approx 12 teaspoons is needed)
To start line a tray with grease proof paper (baking paper), and place onto the paper approx 12 teaspoons of nutella (ball shaped if possible), freeze for 1/2 hour or until firm. (This just makes the nuella easier to handle when stuffing the cookies).
In a large bowl mix 1 cup of Nutella and 1 egg. Then add 1 cup of flour, and mix to combine (it will be thick).
Roll out 1-2 teaspoons of cookie dough in the palm of your hand and then flatten. Place onto a lined baking tray. Place a frozen ball of nutella in the middle of this cookie dough. Take a second lot of cookie dough (1-2 teaspoons approx), roll in the palm of your hand and again flatten. Place it on top of the frozen nutella, and press the edges of the 2 cookies to seal them, as you would if making ravioli.
Repeat the process until all of the dough is used, i found it only made approx 10-12 cookies.
Bake for 6-8 minutes.
This was such an easy cookie to make, it only has 3 ingredients! The frozen nutella was a revelation, it was much easier to handle to stuff the cookies, and frozen nutella tastes great I’ve discovered! The cookies were a bit crumbly when first out of the oven, i found them easier to handle after i’d left them to cool, and came back to them a couple hours later. The molten lava centre is delicious, and even though i made them on Sunday there are no cookies left today for school lunches.
Cookie rating: 3 out of 5
The original recipe can be sourced from:
This weeks shoe is from Svens clogs. It’s a Mary Jane Sandal with a 3″ High Heel
and a non Bendable Base
i really like that you can choose any colour leather, plus you can choose the base colour as well. (I would choose red, it’s my favourite colour!). They also have a lower heel t-bar option as well.

It’s date night with my husband tonight and i was thinking of wearing my 1950’s wiggle dress. I’m new to wiggle dresses, it’s only since the addition of Rago shapewear to my undergarments (which have been a revelation!) that’s I’ve taken to wearing them. The dress a very beautiful navy blue, with a waist detail with sequins, i just love it! Trying to decide at the moment if i should wear my fluevogs with the dress.

It might seem like a weird heading for a post but an implausibility of Gnu’s is one of my favourite collective nouns.
Collective nouns are the words we use to describe groups, groups of people, animals and birds. Collective nouns have been circulating in the English language since at least 1486, when The Book of Saint Albans included a list of 165 collective names. It included collective nouns such as melody of harpers, a sentence of judges and a drunkship of cobblers.
The collective nouns of animals vary widely in their origins. Some are named for their characteristic behaviour, such as a leap of leopards, some like a burden of mules were used to describe their use to humans and some were named after the personalities they were believed to possess, such as an unkindness of ravens, a busyness of ferrets or a skulk of foxes.
Woop studios illustrates collective nouns, it is their wonderful prints that i have included on this page. Amongst my favourites are:
An embarrassment of Pandas A murder of Crows
A parliament of Owls A murmuration of Starlings
A crash of Rhinos and A tiding of Magpies
I just love them!

Parapillar by David Campbell
“When I make works from light boxes (such as Brick Lane Remix, 2003), or old plastic bottles with lights inside, I hope the illumination suspends their objecthood to some degree and makes the viewer see them a little differently – see them as colours before seeing them as objects.” The brightest possible palette fills the range of neon-lit columns, modular crates, spherical shapes, and unlit clusters (such as Parapillar, 2006), the artist’s “vehicles for colour.” David Campbell
This work is by the Scottish artist David Batchelor. This plastic bottle installation is called the Candela 7/450 (For the Death Star) by the Scottish artist David Batchelor. it uses 450 upcycled household bottles, each containing a low energy light bulb. It looks so beautiful! It was hanging in the temperature palm house at the Royal Botanic gardens in Edinburgh., Scotland.
