Strawberry, Roasted Hazelnut, Dark and White Chocolate Chip Cookies


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.

Hot Cross Cookies


Hot Cross Cookies Bored of Hot Cross Buns? How about some Hot Cross Cookies instead? A clever twist on an Easter classic, they're sure to become a family favourite. I love Easter. I'm not religious (each to our own) so it has the be the choc-fest that does it for me! What's not to love about beautifully wrapped and presented Easter eggs? All the pretty pastel shades, the little chicks and Easter bonnets that make their way into our heart and home. All the fun activities for the kidlets too, I secretly like to join in! I'd never get bored of hot cross buns neither. And I know that … [Read more...]

Dark and White Chocolate Mousse Parfait


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...]

Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins


Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins Or rather, "Raspberry and White Chocolate Chunk Muffins". These pupsters have rather large-ish chunks of white chocolate in them. Gives them an incredible bite!

Not only that, the raspberries in these muffins have also been halved. It's like a party in your mouth to bite into these bad boys and discover the chunky chocolate and halved raspberry pieces. The weather has really … [Read more...]

Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge


Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge No bake, no box mix, yet replicates the taste of cake batter. This melt in your mouth Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge is delicious and has a wonderful textured crunch from the sprinkles. Sprinkles make me happy. I love everything about them. The variety of happy colours, fun shapes, their sweet taste, the crunch, everything. They remind me of beautiful rainbows after a dull rainy day. Which is pretty ironic since they're rainbow colours. Which then leads me onto glitter, but I won't go there now! :) I've been having the urge for a while to make funfetti anything. … [Read more...]

White Chocolate and Blueberry Muffins

You know that both taste great, and you're going to eat them, regardless of which one you decide on. Still you can't help wanting both. You can have both if you really want to. Or at least you can with this recipe. Not even foxy bingo would be able to keep you away from these babies when they're baking, let alone once they are done. So why not try combining blueberry and white chocolate? You'll regret if you don't. Here's the … [Read more...]
