Brownies & Bars, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 22.06.2018

My love for Snickers chocolate bars began about 5 years ago when my husband and I went travelling. No matter what country we were in, Snickers seemed to be available. At times, like in China, I think it was the only Western chocolate bar around. A familiar and delicious remedy for homesickness! It turns out, Snickers is the most popular chocolate bar in the world and has been around for 90 years! The best news of all is now you can make your very own Snickers bars at home. Although there are a several layers it is actually very straighforward to...

Juicy, ripe plums are right up there with my favourite fruits. These Spiced Plum Crumble Bars make excellent use of them!

I previously discovered that brownies and choc-chip cookies are phenomenal friends when I made my Choc-chip Cookie Oreo Brownies. Which got me thinking about S’mores. Traditionally these American campfire treats are made by sandwiching chocolate and a marshmallow between two Graham Crackers (digestive-like biscuits). This combination of layers inspired me to make a S’mores-inspired Layer Cake using choc-chip cookies, brownies, chocolate ganache and marshmallow meringue. I was expecting it to be pretty delicious - I mean you can’t really go wrong with that combo, right? But let me tell you - this cake was delicious on another level! And rather grand-looking too,...

Doughnuts are right up there with my favourite treats in the whole world. Light and fluffy on the inside, crispy fried on the outside and then either filled with or covered in something sweet and decadent. What's always put me off making my own is the whole frying business. Being as clumsy as I am, the thought of litres of bubbling hot oil anywhere near me made me a little nervous. Until I discovered the wonder of this Russell Hobbs Digital deep fryer. Not only does it heat the oil in a matter of minutes, but it maintains the temperature of the...
