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. […]

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 […]

Christmas Rocky Road

Christmas Rocky Road

I love any kind of Rocky Road. It’s basically a fancy pimped up biscuit, and I’ve got so much time for that. Christmas is kind of the perfect time for it too, because there’s loads of yummy sweets and chocolates everywhere for you to throw […]

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Berry Picking Since moving to a new house in August, we’ve become slightly fruit picking obsessed. We’ve got an apple tree in the garden, so we had a few months of apple madness. There was lots of cooking with apples and new recipes. Then, we’ve […]

Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Humbug I must confess, I’m not really bothered by Halloween. It means we’re a step closer to Christmas, but that’s where my enthusiasm for it ends if I’m honest. When I was a kid, my parents were of the “It’s an American holiday, you’re […]
