As soon as I started thinking about the Olympics back in about April I knew I wanted to make some gold medals. I also knew I had to use some milk chocolate digestive biscuits for the medal since the games are in London this year.
It is totally weird that I LOVE digestives but I do. I can't even buy them or they will disappear overnight. If you don't know what they are, "digestives" are an English cookie that is made from wheat flour. This may not sound that great but it makes the most wonderful crumbly texture. And the digestives I love are covered in chocolate on one side.
To. Die. For. I swear. You can find them at World Market or other places that sell British imports.
I used McVities brand for this but Cadbury's are actually my favorite (Shhh don't tell anyone who is English.)
Anyway, I was trying to figure out how to make these medals and was totally planning on hand painting some gold luster dust on each cookie. Then, a few weeks ago my friend Dorothy posted these super cute hand pie medals and used Duff gold cake spray.
So I sprayed them instead and it was SO easy. These literally take about 5 minutes to spray and once they are dry you can assemble them in about ten seconds. Don't you love themed treats that are so easy anybody can do it?
It is more fun to have a party when you aren't totally exhausted from preparing for it.
When my husband came home from work after I made these he asked how I made them gold.
"Oh I just used spray paint of course. I"m pretty sure it's non-toxic."
And then I ate one right in front of him. And savored every crumble.
And watched his expression.
