Chocolate Brownie Mousse Trifle

brownie-chocolate-mousse-1.jpg

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...]

Gooey Chocolate Caramel Tart

'Ello, gov'nah! (sorry, I couldn't resist). My name is Hayley and I write the blog The Domestic Rebel. I believe in cake mix, overdosing on sprinkles, and wearing tutus with combat boots. Also, I love anything that's awesome, which is why I am great friends with Lisa! I met Lisa through this crazy world of blogging, and since then, we've become great bloggy buddies. Even though she lives across the pond (unfairly thousands of miles away from California where I live), I have this amazing ability to be able to Imag-O-Taste her desserts. What is Imag-O-Taste, you ask? It's this thing, … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups Hi everyone! I’m really excited to be doing a guest post for Lisa today (my first ever!) Sweet 2 Eat Baking was one of the first blogs I started following before taking the leap of starting my own :D Today’s recipe is inspired by my friend Natasha over at Butter Baking who recently made some cookies baked in paper cases. I’m really pleased with this cookie recipe, it’s been tweaked from recipes I’ve used before and the fact they are baked in paper cases means they don’t spread and stay nice and puffy. It also means you don’t have to wait for the cookie … [Read more...]

Candy Cane Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles Heard of AA meetings? Well, I think there should be a new one… OO. Oreo Obsession. I know I'd have to go to those meetings and I'm hoping I won't be alone! ;) Who's going to accompany me? Ever since that magical day when Oreos finally hit the shelves in the UK (more about that here), I've been a member of OO. Who wouldn't be? Those sandwiched chocolate crisp cookies and the sweet vanilla cream are like a party in your mouth. It was a no brainer that I wanted to use Oreos in my truffles. And peanut butter! I wanted that festive touch too. … [Read more...]

Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Chocolate Brownie Cookies Just 10 sleeps until Santa comes down your chimney! When Santa comes down my chimney, I want him to be greeted by something special. I figured that when he visits most homes on his endless list, he'd be greeted with treats. No wonder he has a strapping waistline eh? My home will be warm and cosy for Santa's arrival. The fire will be off (obviously) and there will be a warm festive glow from my Christmas tree directing Santa, like aircraft landing lights, to his destination. He'll shuffle under the weight of his giant sack breathing a big sigh of relief after … [Read more...]

Candy Cane Chocolate Peppermint Creams

candy-cane-chocolate-peppermint-creams-4

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...]

Chocolate Funfetti Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Chocolate Funfetti Cake Batter Krispie Treats If you haven't seen already, I've started a new weekly link party. Checkout Sugar & Slice Sunday. :) I'm having this love affair with cake batter at the minute. It's no secret that I love that flavour. I became a little intrigued by Funfetti cake mixes a few months back. We don't get anything 'Funfetti' in the UK so I decided to not only see what it was like, but to attempt to replicate the flavour of cake batter without the need for cake box mixes. I may be completely wrong here but all the Funfetti cake batters, whether that's cookies, … [Read more...]
