Today we made some bear paw biscuits, I had seen some lovely ideas on pin interest but they used flaked almonds as claws, looked brilliant but we have more than one child with a serious nut allergy so they were out of the question. Got thinking and decided if I could get hold of some of the plamil chocolate drops we could use those instead, we also have a serious dairy allergy and no soy or eggs, so baking is always interesting. We used my ginger biscuit recipe and then added the chocolate drops before we cooked them, I think they turned out very well.
70g brown sugar
80g golden syrup
225g plain flour
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1and 1/2tsps ground ginger

Rolling the biscuit mix into balls.
We then gently pressed the mixture down.
Then used chocolate chips to make the paw print pattern,
