Treat Petite April 2016 Round Up

Thanks to everyone who took part in Treat Petite this month.

The theme was using a favourite sweet, chocolate or biscuit in a bake. It was great to see how people incorporated their favourite treats into a Treat Petite.

First up we have Ros, the More Than Occasional Baker who took her favourite chocolate bar Toffee Crisp, chopped it up and popped the pieces into cookie batter. Voila! Toffee Crisp Cookies – scrummy!

Next up was Choclette at Tin and Thyme, who made bourbon biscuits. I think there was a slight confusion over the theme, which I shall accept full responsibility for. No favourite treat used in these, but as they are a favourite treat, I think they are fair game! I love bourbon biscuits!

Angela, from Only Crumbs Remain made cute Butterfly Buns. Ingeniously she used white chocolate buttons, with sprinkles on, as the wings. I think this is a great idea and something I may nab in future!

Next was Sammie at Feasting is Fun who brought us Caramac Caramel Cookies. I noticed these online and badgered asked Sammie to enter these cookies as the addition of Caramac (a favourite of mine) looked so good. The Caramac buttons, which I’ve used before, were melted and drizzled on top. Yummo!

Kat, The Baking Explorer, and Treat Petite co-host was next up using Golden Oreo Cookies (so much better than a custard cream in my humble opinion) in blondies. The ‘stuff’ the middle as it’s called was visible when the blondies were cut up. Delicious stuff!

Lucy, the Baking Queen, used Crunchie bars in a slow cooker recipe for brownies. Crisp on the outside, these looked fudgy in the middle with the crunch of Crunchie coming through. Heaven!

Kate, the Gluten-Free Alchemist, whipped up After Eight Ice Cream Cake Sandwiches. These really look stunning, with the sandwiches mimicking the real After Eight with chocolate either side and a no-churn ice cream in the middle. The After Eight mints were cut into heart shaped and topped these treats off perfectly!

Sarah at From Plate to Pen made a Northern Irish no-bake traybake called Fifteens. Called this as there are 15 of each ingredient in the recipe, the stars of the show were marshmallows, but as Sarah explains Maltesers could be used too. Either way a great Sweet snack!

Johanna at the Green Gourmet Giraffe, posted from down under, these Milo Weetabix Slices. Using an Aussie favourite – Milo malted milk powder and Weetabix cereal, she made these delectable looking Aussie slices. Now, I’m sure we used to get Milo here in the UK, perhaps we can campaign to get it back??

I snuck in at the very end with my Mini Mallow Magic Bars. These are quite similar to other treats above in that they contain loads of different ingredients layered on top of one another, including chocolate chips, nuts, coconut etc. But the mini marshmallows were the sweet star in these. I loved Princess marshmallows as a kid and now you get them in mini-form. Ideal for using in baking!

Thanks again to everyone for taking part in Treat Petite this month and stay tuned for Kat’s theme next month over at The Baking Explorer.


  1. All of these bakes look fab although the after eight ice cream cake and the mini mallow magic bars really have grabbed my attention. I submitted my Cookies willingly and was encouraged, for which I am thankful. Looking forward to next month's theme. Sammie

  2. Great roundup. As I love marshmallows, I love the sound of your magic bars! Yum! Also the crunchie brownies sound fab!

  3. Fab round up, full of super delicious bakes. i particularly love the look and sound of the After Eight ice cream sandwiches and those bourbon biscuits look sooo good :-)
