Caramel frosted banoffee brownies 


These came to me in a dream. Like for real. I woke up in the middle of the night and had to jot down the idea on my phone because I was so scared of forgetting about them come the morning. Such was my excitement that I woke up ridiculously early, left Mr H and baby H snoozing away together in bed and went down to the kitchen to get baking. Continue reading

PB cup stuffed cupcakes with a chocolate mousse frosting

  • Peanut butter cups disappear like you’d never believe in my house. They just vanish. There’s a few people I think are guilty of pinching them when my back is turned, but I don’t like to make accusations, so I thought that perhaps I would hide them instead. I hid them at the back of the fridge…they found them. I hid them in the freezer…they found them. So I decided to hide them IN a chocolate cupcake. They’ll never find them there I thought!

  • Easter nest cake with chocolate ganache

    I love rice Krispy cakes any time of year, but there’s something very Eastery about them indeed. Make them into a nest and chuck some eggs in the middle and you’ve got the perfect easy to make Easter treat.

    Snowy road

    I know you know about rocky road, but what if I told you there was an equally as delicious version that comes out around this time of year? Because I don’t know about you, but I love me a little white chocolate version of anything, and these are just sublime.

    In the winter the rocky roads tend to get covered with a little snow you see. Sounds treacherous, but luckily our friends with their glitter vans are usually on the case. But they haven’t made it to my kitchen (guess it would be weird if they did not to mention a bit messy) so my roads are officially snow-covered. Continue reading

    Chocolate covered cookie dough Easter eggs

    Easter is totally one of my favourite times of year – spring is springing, we get a four day weekend and it’s completely acceptable to eat as much chocolate as physically possible. What’s not to like!

    I wanted to celebrate this year by creating something a little different, because as much as I love chocolate eggs (and boy do I love them), it’s nice to mix it up sometimes too. We’ve got four days after all! Now these beauties may look and sound pretty fancy, but they’re actually really easy to make. You just need a handful of ingredients, a quick whizz in the food processor, and then a dip or three into the most delicious raw chocolate imaginable.
