Coffee kisses

It is that time of the year again...Christmas is coming!! And festive baking is now totally obligatory! So I just wanted to share my favorite christmas biscuit receipt with you.

Coffee kisses

Ingredients: (for around 40 pieces)

For the egg white mass:
2 egg whites (size m)
1-2 tablespoons instant coffee powder
100 grams icing sugar (sieved)
8 grams vanilla sugar

For the topping:
100 grams dark chocolate
1 teaspoon cooking oil


Egg white mass:
Whisk the egg white till stiff with a hand mixer. Mix the coffee powder, icing sugar and vanilla sugar and gradually embezzle this mass into the egg white mass on the highest level of the hand mixer. Finally place little heaps with the help of two teaspoons on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Push the baking tray in the lower third of the preheated oven.

Two-sided heat: 130 degree Celsius
Fan heat: 110 degree Celsius
Baking time: around 30 minutes

Afterwards pull the biscuits with the baking paper on a cake rust and let them cool off. Roughly crush the chocolate and let it melt together with the oil over hot water on low heat. Dip the bottom of the biscuits into the melted chocolate. If you want to, you can also decorate the biscuits on their top with the chocolate.

This receipt has been a favorite of mine for several years now. The biscuits are so easy to make, yet they just taste amazing. However, this is not a traditional Christmas receipt, so I think you could totally bake them all year round. Also, I always make the double amount of them, just take twice the ingredients for it.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Let me know what you think of these coffee kisses!

A little bit of nature

I don't know if it's just me but I need some "living" plants in my room to feel comfortable. Unfortunately, I'm really bad when it comes to water them, so I can only buy plants that are easy to look after.. Anyways, I just really love plants and so I thought I'd make a blog post about my recent plant purchases.
These are the ones that are now living with me :)
I don't really know how this one is called but it's some kind of a palm tree, so it's very easy to keep it alive as it only needs water from time to time. Also if you're wondering, that are two vanilla scented candles on the sides.
Isn't this little orchid just the cutest? Again it's very easy to look after because it's so tiny.

I just find these little leaves and blossoms super cute and the pinky kind of colour is even brighter irl than it is here on the photo.
These two aren't the only plants I got in my room. I also have another kind of palm tree which has been in my room for over three years now so that's like a record for me. And then there's another orchid which is much bigger than the one on the photo and it had purple-white blossoms but it's in its winter phase right now so the blossoms have all fallen off. It made me a bit sad at first, but it's just something natural and new blossoms will grow soon.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of nature!

essie - shearling darling

All about the nails

As we're getting nearer to christmas (can't wait^^) it is of course necessary to bring some festivity to our nails! So I decided to choose this nail polish:
essie - shearling darling 

This one has been a favorite of mine since the first minute I got it. The dark red/purple is just perfect for autumn and winter but to be honest, I wouldn't also miss it in summer or spring. I just think it gives the nails some kind of an extra cool attitude plus it is super easy to put on thanks to the rather wide brush and the perfect liquidity of essie nail polishes. 

Would love to know what kind of nail polishes you use during the colder days!
