Hello all! Happy New Year! After a hectic two months of serious exam stressing and Christmas food gorging, I'm back with a beauty of a recipe - my chocolate mousse cake dessert. This happened as somewhat of an accident when I was making an eggless chocolate sponge for my nephew Jack's first birthday... It turned … Continue reading Chocolate Sponge Mousse Cake Dessert
I cannot describe how absolutely scrummy these chocolate bites are. I stumbled across this recipe once in Nigella's 'Kitchen' book (who else, seeing as these are the epitome of over-the-top indulgence). The salty crunch of the peanuts, with the dark, rich chocolate with a bit of chew and sweetness from the honeycomb results in a confection … Continue reading Chocolate, Salted Peanut & Honeycomb squares

I always use a good quality chocolate as it does truly does make a difference- that nasty cooking chocolate simply won't cut the mustard! I leave mine to set in … Continue reading Millionaire’s Shortbread with Salted Peanuts

Although, in my defence, the past three months have been hectic to say the least! Since I last posted, I've managed to get in to college studying my … Continue reading Christening cake inspo!
I had only made fondants once before I tried this recipe with the results being slightly disappointing. The recipe I had previously used produced a sponge like fondant and didn't have much of a chocolatey kick as it called for half milk half dark chocolate (I'm a dark choccie fan 100%). I wasn't expecting much … Continue reading Perfect Chocolate Fondants
