Choco-jam-n-nut cookies

Recently I prepared some theater costumes for kids. The theme was mix-n-match, something very colorful and overwhelming. In the beginning I wasn't sure if I could enjoy doing it as something too colorful isn't my style. After the job was done (there were many other people involved the work), in fact, that numerous colors, bold and contrast, seemed to be mindlessly put together but turned out to be very cheerful and pleasing.

Now I look at these colorful place mats which I never used, wouldn't be a good idea to put them together?! :)

I also made these cookies... the texture supposes to be crumbly (due to a high proportion of chopped nuts). There are many things going on here too: the dough is chocolate-y and super-nutty (I used three types of nuts), the filling is a little bit of fruit preserve. I don't create my own recipe, I searched a few of them from internet, then combined and improvise according to my liking.

Have fun!

The contrast of those bright colours you chose is very bold and striking. Love the pleasant mood you created.

It's a shame they didn't turn out as nice as you wanted to, but at least they were very pretty :)
