    In honor of @Titania Xylia and @Sir Stile Teckel who are always generous with donations of fireworks for my kids, our family baked some chocolate cookies with the "broken moon"!

    (Er, too bad we can't send you cookies in the mail, you two...)

    Yum! :)

    PS: Since some asked, the broken moon effect is random - it's a 2D version of what happened with the Novian moon. The heat from the oven melts the small chocolate wafer and sometimes it breaks apart over the raised surface of the cookie. They all start out whole before baking.

    Heh, white chocolate is actually mainly cocoa butter and sugar so it goes a little translucent on a dark background like a chocolate cookie. Much easier is to do a vanilla cookie with a dark chocolate wafer for better contrast.
