Chocolate Hobnobs

Chocolate Hobnobs

I love biscuits. They are my absolute weakness. I’d quite happily sit and eat a packet of chocolate biscuits without realising they are gone, and a quick afternoon snack can quite easily turn into half a packet. Or worse, feeling like I have to finish […]

Mini Egg Cookies

Mini Egg Cookies

Such is my love of Easter baking, and all things chocolate, there are already two Mini Egg Cookies recipes on my blog. Not to mention tons of other yummy Easter recipes. I just can’t help myself. This recipe is my favourite so far. It’s a […]

Easter Creme Egg Rocky Road

Easter Creme Egg Rocky Road

I’ve been making my Rocky Road a little differently lately. I used to either just pour chocolate on everything, or make a golden syrup/butter chocolate mix and cover the biscuity bits in this, and then top it with melted chocolate. But, lately, I’ve started making […]

Creme Egg Millionaire Shortbread

Creme Egg Millionaire Shortbread

I quite like Easter. I’m not even a little bit religious, so not in that sense. But I like the idea of welcoming Spring and celebrating new life and everything else that is lovely about this time of year. And the chocolate, of course. Even […]

Mini Egg Rocky Road

Mini Egg Rocky Road

My kids are obsessed with Mini Eggs. When he was young, Michael thought mini eggs were eggs. He was very disappointed one morning when he asked for eggs after Easter! This means that as soon as we enter a new year, and Easter starts taking […]

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

I remember always being impressed by how a Red Velvet Cake looked. Having tried to make pink cupcakes with the kids, and always ending up with a faintly brown, I was incredibly impressed by the colour. But, for a long time, I’d never eaten one. […]

Chocolate Heart Surprise Cake

Chocolate Heart Surprise Cake

I don’t remember the last time I went out on Valentine’s Day. It’s been a good few years, and me and Husband have never been out for a romantic valentines meal. I mean, we might have took the kids for a Nando’s lunch or something […]

Rocky Road Cheesecake

Rocky Road Cheesecake

Rocky road and cheesecake are two of my favourite things. Rocky road is great because it’s super simple. You mix all of your favourite things together and basically cover them in chocolate. Which is just wonderful. I always think that Rocky Road is basically a […]

Mint Rocky Road

Mint Rocky Road

I love mint chocolate. It’s such a fantastic flavour. I’m particularly fond of After Eights, mint matchmakers and mint options hot chocolate. My dad always used to have After Eights at Christmas, so mint chocolate reminds me of Christmas, even though it’s not a remotely […]

After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies

After Eights are one of those things that aren’t really remotely christmasy. But, we eat them at Christmas, and don’t really have them the rest of the time, so they’ve become a Christmas food. To be fair, you could argue that this is true of […]
