Fun Fridays Challenge

Tomorrow we are making Chocolate Crackles. Mrs Shroff gave us a recipe for this earlier on this week and we had to work out 1/4 of all the ingredients. This was a little challenging but we managed to get there in the end when we worked together. I hope all of our measurements are correct otherwise the crackles may not turn out. Our fingers are crossed. Watch this space for our results :)
