I used a Nigella recipe for these rocky road beauties, but there are many other similar recipes out there. I liked this one as it was simple and easy to follow.

Chocolate Brownies

IMG_8612

When I was younger my mother would ask me what kind of cake would I like for my birthday? Usually children want some kind of traditional chocolate cake. Me? I would ask to have chocolate brownie as my cake. It is probably one of my favourite desserts my mum could ever make for me. It also made me very popular with my friends!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies

This recipe is not one of my own, it was a gift from a friend- the ingredients and baking instructions all put into a Kilner jar. All except the eggs. It looked lovely in the jar and I didn’t make this for some time as I just liked looking at all the colours in it.

Hannah’s Hot Chocolate Pots

Hot Chocolate Pots

This post doesn’t have a recipe sadly as my friend Hannah made these and it’s a secret recipe. She did tell me the ingredients however- dark chocolate, sugar, butter and a bit of flour.
They tasted amazing- so rich and this size of pot was almost too much. They had the perfect consistency, light and spongy on the outside, and oozing melted chocolate in the middle. I may have to steal the recipe from her when she’s sleeping…

Chocolate Rum Cake

Chocolate Rum Cake

We threw my friend a surprise party and as I love any excuse to bake I thought I would make a cake. I knew there would be a lot of West Indian’s there so thought that rum would make an essential ingredient.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

So when I’m ill and bored I like to bake.
And this weekend I’ve been stuck at home with a virus. So out came my baking things and I looked in my cupboards as to what I could use for my creation.
My favourite type of cooking is finding things in your cupboard/fridge and making something delicious with it.
I decided I needed something chocolate and I like cupcakes as you can have just one (or three) and not feel guilty as they are so bitesize. This is what I came up with.

Chocolate Fudge

chocolate fudge

Nom nom nom…..
This was my first ever attempt at making fudge- and I think it turned out very well. Took it into work and tried it out on them- they are my guinea pigs for food. It went down very well with most people coming back for seconds, which I took to be a positive sign!

Cheeky Cherries

Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies.
Now that’s a mouthful! These brownies are much lighter than most other brownie recipes this means that just one piece isn’t enough- even more than usual! You could substitute cherries for nuts if you prefered, or even other fruit, but I think cherries work the best.

Triple Chocolate Cookies

cookies

I was really pleased with how these turned out. It was my first time using one of those re-usable silicone baking mats and I found it worked really well. No sticking to the bottom of the tray for me.
I made about half as much mixture as last time and made them into considerably smaller balls.
I took them into work and they were all gone within about half an hour! Which is good going even for my office.
