Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 05.08.2018

I love slice ‘n bake cookies! None of the messy business of rolling out and cutting the dough. Simply slice into rounds and bake! These Chocolate Nougat Cookies have a rich, chocolate flavour and buttery texture like shortbread. The bits of nutty nougat add a crunchy pop of sweetness to every bite. The recipe makes two logs of dough. I like to bake one and freeze the other - handy when that cookie craving hits! Ingredients: 200g butter, softened 100g castor sugar 5ml vanilla essence 225g flour 30g cocoa pinch of salt 75g almond nougat, chopped into very small pieces Directions: Cream together the butter and castor sugar for 4-5 minutes, until...

Hot chocolate, Milo, Horlicks. Those comforting hot drinks that get us through miserable winter days. For some time, Horlicks has not been available in SA, so I was absolutely delighted to discover that it's back on the shelves again. It didn't take me long to think up a recipe using Horlicks. I've been meaning to make fudge for some time, and  a creamy, malty Horlicks fudge sounded like a good idea to me!

Toasted marshmallows on an open fire - what could be more reminiscent of a night in the bush or a camping weekend? In fact, even a casual braai or indoor fire is an excuse to get some marshmallows toasting in my opinion! Nothing quite compares to that toasty, roasted flavour - ever so slightly burnt and crispy on the outside, and gooey and soft on the inside. I was determined to translate this flavour into an ice cream and my new Russell Hobbs ice cream maker gave me the perfect excuse to get experimenting. As it turns out, this Toasted Marshmallow...

If you love sinking your teeth into sweet, nutty nougat, this Honey and Almond Nougat recipe is just for you! It has a deliciously chewy texture and honey almond flavour. You can of course add any nuts you like, and even dried fruit like cranberries, apricots or glacé cherries. Just keep your total weight of add-in's to 500g. Making your own nougat may seem rather intimidating. After making this recipe several times I have learned a few things: - A stand mixer is essential as the mixture gets very thick and a hand-held mixer is just not strong enough. - Once you stop whisking,...
