This quick and easy chocolate cake recipe comes from my days at summer camp where I worked as an assistant cook between grade 11 and 12. The head cook's name was Bunny, and she had some amazing recipes which she graciously shared. Myself and my co-worker, my best friend Barb, were supposed to make all the snacks for the campers each day. This was one of our favourites to make.
I got this recipe from my sister, Pam, although I'm not sure where she got it. I made this for a party at a friend's place, making enough for two decent sized bowls. One of the guests was so enthralled with the dip, he literally stood at the buffet table and ate cracker-load after cracker-load of this dip. It was crazy. Then it occurred to me that it wasn't his fault - this dip is really quite addictive!!
These were my Grandmother's special cookies. Her mother was originally from Iceland, so I believe this is the origin for this particular recipe. We made these at home every Christmas as part of our holiday baking. They melt in your mouth like a shortbread, and have a lovely almond flavour. The dough is easier to work with if chilled as per the instructions. They freeze very well. Don't forget to put on a CD with your favourite Christmas music while making these little beauties.
