Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 02.03.2018

After sharing my Caramel Peppermint Crisp truffles and Peppermint Crisp Tart Ice Cream Sandwiches I figured you had probably had enough of the Peppermint Crisp/Caramel flavour combo. I was wrong! My recent Instagram poll has confirmed that 92% of you never get tired of a Peppermint Crisp Tart inspired treat. So I took that on board and whipped up a delicious Peppermint Crisp and Caramel Rocky Road. With just 4 ingredients and 15 minutes to spare, you can create these deliciously chewy, crunchy, caramelly delights. I doubt you'll need more convincing than that, but if you do, remember they are calorie-free! Ok, that's...

If you find the idea of making a Milk Tart a bit overwhelming, then consider these 4 ingredient Mini Milk Tart Truffles. The recipe involves no more skill than melting chocolate, and the result is a crunchy, creamy, cinnamony treat. With that added cute factor!

The combination of ice cream, popcorn and caramel may seem a little strange at first but let me assure you, it is a wonderful combination indeed. The slightly salty, crunchy popcorn adds a totally new dimension to the sweet, creamy vanilla ice cream. Smother this in rich, salted caramel sauce and you have yourself a Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream Sundae to die for! As with many things in life, homemade is so much better than shop-bought. This is definitely true of caramel popcorn.  I find the shop-bought variety sickly sweet with only a mild caramelised flavour in comparison to this recipe. Not...

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 12.02.2018

I had a lot of fun making these Valentine's Day Fortune Cookies! Once you get the hang of the folding and curling, they are very easy to make. And you get to write your very own personal message for your loved one to receive as a sweet surprise! I used a good quality almond extract for the flavour and it really adds something special. The cookies actually taste great without the chocolate too, but in the spirit of Valentine's Day I felt they needed a little "bling"! Ingredients: 2 large egg whites 45ml butter, melted and cooled 2 tsp water ½ tsp Nielsen-Massey Almond Extract (available...
