This Rolo Pastry Braid is dangerously easy to make! Essentially it is just a slab of chocolate, wrapped in puff pastry and sprinkled with almonds and baked. Easy, huh? If you are a fan of chocolate and caramel together, then I'm guessing you love Rolo's as much as I do. You can now buy Rolo's in chocolate slab form, which worked out wonderfully for me in making this dessert. The chocolate and caramel melt together when baked, making the most ooey gooey, delicious filling. However, you could really use any slab of chocolate you like! Ingredients: (Serves 4) 400g sheet ready-made puff pastry 150g Rolo...

This is one of those shamelessly decadent recipes. I mean, as if a crumble wasn't yummy enough, you make it even more delicious by making it a chocolate crumble. And a fruit filling? Nope, we're going with a creamy caramel custard instead! It's no secret that chocolate and caramel are a match made in heaven.

Do you remember After Eights? If you never had the pleasure of tasting one, they are delicious thin squares of dark chocolate filled with a minty cream (also known as Peppermint Creams or Thin Mints). The refreshing peppermint flavour makes them light enough to have after dinner when you don't want a rich dessert. As far as I'm aware they are not available in South Africa anymore, but it turns out they are a doddle to make at home! The trick to making the best Peppermint Cream, as with most things, is using excellent quality ingredients. A good 70% dark chocolate will...

Not that one ever needs an excuse to eat Pancakes, but if you do today is Pancake Day! To be more correct it is Shrove Tuesday, traditionally a feasting day before the start of Lent. On this day stocks of eggs, dairy and fat were used up before the fasting of Lent began. A pancake can either be thick and fluffy (American style pancakes) or thin and flat (like French Crepes). Although I have love for both of them, I am celebrating Pancake Day with the latter variety. These utterly decadent S’mores Pancakes to be specific! In my opinion the perfect crepe should...
