Strawberry, Roasted Hazelnut, Dark and White Chocolate Chip Cookies These Strawberry, Roasted Hazelnut, Dark & White Chocolate Chip Cookies have delicious dried strawberries for that fruity punch and moistness, nuts for a textured crunch and of course delicate creamy white chocolate in addition to the dark chocolate chips. Crunchy, chewy and indulgent. They're chocolate chip cookies with a difference! I'm a lover of all cookie but these are my new favourite by far! There's just something missing from a regular chocolate chip cookie. Don't get me wrong, the dark chocolate definitely … [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!

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...]

Dark & White Chocolate Mousse Parfait There's just something about chocolate that makes me scream inside. Heck, I'd scream outside too but then I wouldn't be disguised as the responsible adult I am.. *snort!* And around this time of the year, it's everywhere too.

English Coconut Macaroons

English Coconut Macaroons I cannot quite believe that English macaroons are now deemed to be old-fashioned, and less sophisticated than their French namesakes. Who decided this?! Maybe it's because they're far easier to make than their French cousins? I certainly don't agree with that statement. Firstly, they make a perfect tea time treat. The outer is perfectly crispy with a moist, chewy, refreshing coconut inner. The drizzled dark chocolate is an amazing finishing touch and is fantastic combo. Taste wise, these kind of taste like a Bounty chocolate/candy bar, or Mounds in the US but … [Read more...]
