A little ANZAC inspiration

With ANZAC day approaching next week, as always, I've been searching the net recently to find some different yet traditional ways to celebrate it. Last year on the blog, we made ANZAC cookies dipped in white and dark chocolate which were so yummy! (get the recipe here). But this year I'm inspired to create something that is a bit of twist on the old ANZAC biscuit classic. As such, I've opted to make an ANZAC slice but instead exploring some different flavour alternatives. There are plenty of variations on ANZAC slices out there at the moment, gooey caramel, chocolate and even coconut, oat and apple. In saying that I think I have settled on an apricot and coconut ANZAC slice, but plan to make it as more of a friand than a biscuit base slice. Stay tuned for the next blog for the recipe and pics.

Meanwhile, I thought I would share with you some of the great ideas I found on line for the special day. Whether you are having a quiet afternoon tea with family and friends, or maybe looking for some traditional Australian fare to enjoy over some drinks, there is something for everyone. And as always the entire Pinterest inspiration board can be found here along with full image credits.
