If you told me to make a dessert with coconut biscuits, caramel and peppermint chocolate I would say that is way too many flavours in one dish! Yet Peppermint Crisp Tart is one of the most well-loved desserts in South Africa, proving that the flavours work together fabulously. These Caramel Peppermint Crisp truffles combine all the delicious flavours of the famous dessert into little bite-sized balls of joy. If you can bear to give them away, these would make a fabulous gift for that friend of yours. You know, the one who LOVES Peppermint Crisp Tart - we all know at least...

Crunchy, nutty and beautifully golden. The perfect accompaniment to your afternoon cuppa! I may have mentioned that my husband hates peanut butter. And I love it.

These chocolate mousse domes have a crunchy chocolate biscuit base, creamy milk chocolate mousse filling with a white chocolate ganache centre, and coated in a dark chocolate mirror glaze decorated with caramelised cacao nibs.

Ingredients: (Makes 6) Chocolate Biscuits: 90g butter, softened 100g castor sugar 1 egg 5ml vanilla extract 180g...

Cakes & Cupcakes, Recipes / 02.11.2017

Hola amiga's! I've been really excited to share these not-so-cuddly cupcakes with you. Succulents and cacti are SO on-trend right now! Especially if you live in Cape Town and can grow nothing else in your garden, thanks to the drought. Perhaps you're wondering what type of occasion would call for making these prickly cactus cupcakes. In my case it was for a Mexican-themed 1-year old's party (alongside a Piñata cake, of course). Your reason may be margarita night, a garden-club tea, or even to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Whatever the occasion, these barbed beauties are sure to bring a smile to your...
