30 days wild - Day 18 Hedgehog biscuits

We used:

For the biscuits:
250g butter, softened
140g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour

For the topping:
150g chocolate
Chocolate sprinkles
Chocolate drops

Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C fan. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Mix the butter and sugar in a bowl.

Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract.

Sift in the flour.

Form the biscuits. To make the hedgehogs, break off little bits and roll them in your hands to form balls, then shape the snout/nose. If you put your baking trays in the fridge for 10 minutes it should stop your biscuits spreading as much.

Put your baking tray in the oven for 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown.

Remove from the oven and put them on a wire rack to cool (you might want to reshape the noses a little before they cool).

Either pour the chocolate over each biscuit, dip them in your bowl or use a spoon to spread the chocolate on. Sprinkle over your chocolate sprinkles to form the hedgehog spines.

30 days wild - Day 13 Penny Walk

Today P and I went for a walk in the sunshine. The idea of a Penny Walk is that every time you come to a junction, one tosses a penny. Heads you turn right and tails left. We had a great walk, although we decided at a certain time we just had to head home!

30 days wild - Day 11 Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Today we went to the Lee Valley Hockey Centre to watch England vs Netherlands. It was such fun to watch amazing hockey! The girls really enjoyed it as well!

  We then had a quick wonder through the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, bustling animal habitats, waterways, colourful flowers and insects.
