Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-fudge-1

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge Don't you just love it when you find a no-fail recipe for fudge? Not just any kind of fudge but chocolate chip cookie dough fudge? What's not to love? No sugar thermometers; no wondering whether your sugar thermometer is inaccurate because the probe touches the bottom of the pan which is obviously hotter, so you stand there holding the darn thing 'just' above. Or is that just me? ;) And then there's the times that you just can't be bothered to bust out the sugar thermometer. I mean, why bother when you discover no-fail recipes that don't call for … [Read more...]

Reindeer Poop – Peanut Butter Balls

reindeer-poop-peanut-butter-balls-1

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...]

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...]

Gingerbread Fudge

gingerbread-fudge-3

Easy Gingerbread Fudge In my last post I confessed my sins that I didn't like mint on its own. I have another confession to make too. You're all going to think I'mma crazy but I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet. I know, I know. Like I said… crazy! The main reason is cash-flow issues. I'm sure a lot of you can relate to that in this economic crappiness. The story starts and ends in happiness. Very Disney-esq, but no singing I promise. :D Boy meets girl that he's known all along. Girl likes boy, boy likes girl. They fall in love and move in together. Girl has an evil witch that … [Read more...]

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream

Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream Pull up a pew and grab some hankies because I'm going to get all happy and deep on y'all. This exact day last year, I started this blog. I'd also never baked anything in my life before. OK, I may have made some box mix cupcakes wayyyy in the past but, even then, I managed to screw them up somehow! And we're not even talking frosting here. I also never even realised that baking, desserts and blogging would have become such a passion it has become. My hobby, my obsession… my hobsession? :D I never dreamed that I'd get to find such wonderful friends too. A … [Read more...]

Dark and White Chocolate Mousse Parfait

plain-dark-and-white-chocolate-mousse-1

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. Christmas tins full of individually wrapped goodness. Special flavoured chocolate, I could go on forever. But what do you do when you've already opened said special Christmas tins and inhaled a ton of chocolate already? No that I have, of course. *shuffles in seat looking guilty* I wanted my chocolate fix again but I wanted … [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...]
