Brazil Nut Cookies for Dad

My Dad loves Brazil nuts, well I assume he still loves Brazil nuts as I've been buying them for him almost every Father's day, birthday and Christmas for the past twenty years or so. Before that I used to by M&S Grand Marnier chocolate bars but they stopped making them so I moved on to Brazil nut toffee from Thorntons, but nowadays my Dad prefers something a little gentler on his teeth so Thorntons chocolate Brazils it is.

This Father's Day the nuts were accompanied by a subscription to National Geographic Traveller, a bottle of local cider and some home-made Brazil nut cookies, which I packaged in a kids tin bucket.
