Where did I go wrong?

My sister and her brood are coming to stay tomorrow, and I decided to get baking so they'd have some yummy goodies to eat when they got here. There was a recipe I've been wanting to try for a while, in the 'Short Cuts' section of one of my Taste magazines. Basically you just throw together a few ingredients and voila! Something yummy. In this case, some dark chocolate, dried apricots and brown sugar (along with the requisite flour, baking soda, butter and vanilla essence) to make some chocolate apricot biscuits.

I followed the recipe, and put the biscuits into the oven to bake, and... let's just say they didn't come out looking like the picture in the magazine. I did manage to take just one non-blurry picture of my resulting... could you really call them biscuits...? I was laughing so hard it was rather difficult to keep the camera steady long enough to click the button and take a photo. I've tried them, and they do taste nice, but really, would you eat these?

Needless to say, this particular recipe will not be added to my culinary repertoire. Back to the kitchen...
