Chocolate Brownie Mousse Trifle


Chocolate Brownie Mousse Trifle This chocolate brownie mousse trifle has gone all Willy Wonka on you! Absolutely overloaded with chocolate, there's crumbled brownies at the bottom smothered in velvety smooth chocolate mousse, and topped off with some milk and white chocolate curls. There's no better way to celebrate my Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community shop. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. You all are going to laugh your asses off at me and my stupidity because, let's just say, this dessert isn't as … [Read more...]

Rhubarb Crumble


Rhubarb Crumble Delicious sharp fruit sweetened with vanilla sugar and topped with a sweet amaretti biscuit crumble topping, this rhubarb crumble is comfort food at its best! Isn't it weird how your taste in food changes as you grow older? As a child I had a love/hate relationship with rhubarb crumble. I remember adoring this delicious pudding as child but later despising it as a teenager. But peace was again restored as an adult. I can safely say that I love rhubarb crumble again. There's just something so nostalgic about rhubarb crumble. It brings me back to those quiet Sunday afternoons … [Read more...]

New York Crumb Cake


New York Crumb Cake It has taken me exactly 11549 days of my life to finally try a crumb cake! Yes, that's right, little ol' me has spent 31 years and 227 days without ye wonderfulness of crumb cake.

Reindeer Poop – Peanut Butter Balls


Reindeer Poop Peanut Butter Balls It's that time of the year when you find yourself knee deep in wrapping paper, sticky tape, gift tags and Christmas cards. You whine that your hand aches after writing up what seems like 1,836,793,375 cards. Or the fact that there isn't even an inch of hiding space left in your home. The mood you're in after finding yourself lost at sea from the hysterical masses of people squeezed into the stores all in so much of a rush, you'd think there were a race! The panic buying peeps clearing shelves. Even the apocalyptic queue at the petrol station. But in … [Read more...]

Peppermint Christmas Lollipops


Peppermint Christmas Sprinkle Lollipops As a mother of 3 children, it's fair to say that the events that occurred last week on Friday at Sandy Hook elementary school have left me feeling completely devastated. My heart breaks for the families, friends and the community of Newton, CT. I just can't stop thinking about the heroic teachers and the brave, innocent children, it's like a never ending puzzle going through my mind. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for the families. Christmas will never be the same again for the rest of their lives. :( My children are my life. It's so easy … [Read more...]

Candy Cane Chocolate Peppermint Creams


Candy Cane Chocolate Peppermint Creams I'm one of those weirdo peeps that dislikes mint. I won't eat any mint confectionary. No to candy canes, no to mint rock. Although if it's fruit flavoured rock, then rot on teeth! But, if it's mint and chocolate then game on! Any flavour smothered in delicious, delightful chocolate is a good one in my book. Mint and chocolate just seem to compliment each other so perfectly! And wow, it's getting close to Christmas, right? It must be because the giant man-baby is getting all festive on me [don't faint now]. He asked for peppermint creams. His wish was … [Read more...]
