When Little, Brown and Company contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me if I'd like to receive a copy of Maida Heatter's new book - "Happiness is Baking", I must admit I had no idea who she was! But of course, I jumped at the opportunity to add a cookbook to my collection and try some new sweet recipes. After doing a bit of research, I now know that Maida Heatter is an American Pastry Chef who taught the legends - including Martha Stewart! Towards the end of the 1960's she rose to food world fame and has since...

When I discovered these adorable mini skillets online I was inspired to make so many things. Individual brownies, pancakes, Malva puddings, even shakshuka-type breakfast bowls! But the first thing I simply had to try was mini skillet cookies! With Easter around the corner I felt it was appropriate to replace the chocolate chips with little speckled eggs.

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. The combination of textures is what really makes these Chocolate and Caramel Crumble  Squares a winner though. An ultra-creamy, smooth caramel custard sandwiched between 2 layers of buttery, crumbly biscuit - is indeed as good as it sounds! Since the caramel filling is quite sweet, I added...
