Maltesers and Mars Bars...

An online friend posted a delicious-looking recipe recently, and I knew I just had to try making it as an Easter treat. As J-girl is getting older, we don't buy Easter eggs or commercial treats anymore, but we still indulge our chocolate addictions just a teensy bit!

I used the recipe as the inspiration for my Lasting Memories layout this week; our theme is Easter.  Your layout could be about Easter past or Easter present.

Here's a close up of the ingredients and journalling (click to enlarge):

I'm also entering this layout at Scrap It Girl for the Tags & Bags challenge.
The method is written on a hidden tag behind the photograph (click to enlarge):

My layout was built around layout sketch #86 at Feeling Sketchy.
