Last night I picked out this almond blondie triangle recipe to bring to my friend's cocktail and dessert party! I was very excited-- almonds + white chocolate...what could be better?? APRICOTS!! So my roommate and I added some dried apricots. The batter tasted amazing, and it had an almond crust. This is what it looked life before going into the oven:

Fluffy batter with toasted almonds and dried apricots :)
And then after:
What??!?! Top was burt crisp and inside was not cooked AT ALL! And we were late! I had no idea what we did wrong until I was looking over the recipe today....we left out 1 1/4 cups flour. Whoops. I feel dumb. I guess we were in a hurry!
I threw this plate together and ran off to the party:
Brie, cinnamon graham crackers, dried apricots, strawberries, and grapes
Here are some of the highlights from the party:
Chocolate covered strawberries!! These were my favorite!
Dark chocolate truffles in chocolate cups with orange peel. These were divine!
And of course there were cocktails. I had a pomegranate martini :)
So it was a good night, despite our baking mishap! I imagine that most food bloggers are more experienced cookers/bakers than me, but I would love to hear any of your cooking disasters!
