Fish n Chips

Ok, it's a loose connection - more 'fish n choc chips', than the genuine deep fried variety. Had been thinking about Christmas gifts this year and wanted to do some home baked goodies wrapped in a furoshiki, but was wondering how to avoid getting sticky goo on the fabric. Thought of a bento box, then thought maybe an origami version in recycled paper, thought of traditional newspaper wrapped fish and chips - bingo - a newspaper origami bento box, wrapped in our fish print, containing choc chip cookies.

There's a really easy to follow origami box tutorial here (just make a slightly smaller one for the lid) and here's a super simple choc chip cookie recipe:

125g butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 3/4 cup SR flour
125g choc chips

Melt butter in saucepan, add sugar, egg & essence - stir.
Allow to cool slightly.
Add flour & choc chips - stir.
Make tsp sized balls & put on baking paper on baking trays.
Press with fork.
Bake at 180oc for 10-12mins.

I used the baking paper from the cookies to line the newspaper box.

Happy baking & wrapping!
Olivia :)
