Edible Gifts, Recipes / 20.07.2016

Everyone loves a mug of rich, steaming hot chocolate on a chilly day. I know I do. In my case, hot chocolate consumption is not really dependant on the weather. I'm happy to drink it all year round. The more decadent, the better. Hot chocolate is so much more fun when it comes in one of these cute forms. Not only do these make a great homemade gift but they are also perfect for setting up a DIY hot chocolate station at a winter party/bridal shower/baby shower/book club (along with a flask of hot milk, marshmallows and some chocolate chip cookies on the side). Each hot chocolate truffle/spoon/test...

One of the joys of making poached pears is the fragrant, spicy aroma that fills the house. Another is seeing the pale flesh of the pears gradually transform to pure crimson. And then there is the ultimate joy of eating them! Poached pears make an elegant, grown-up, yet stunningly simple dessert. They are deliciously comforting and warming, yet not as heavy as winter puddings often can be. This is an excellent option if you are looking for a gluten-free dessert. It's also nice to know that it makes for one of your five-a-day and if you skip the mascarpone cream it's fat-free too (personally I wouldn't - the cream adds a lovely richness to...
