Edible Gifts, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 14.02.2020

Valentine's Day is here once again (where did January go?!) and I couldn't let the day pass without making some suitably romantic treats. It's the one holiday where I don't restrain my urges to go all out, over-the-top pink and sugary on you guys! So here are some pretty White Chocolate and Cherry Hearts. These little hearts are a fun and easy no-bake treat that can be made with just a few ingredients. The filling is made from icing sugar, condensed milk and cherry flavour, with a touch of lemon juice to balance out all that sweetness. I got the cherry...

With a rich buttery flavour and crisp texture, vanilla butter cookies are just perfect in their simplicity! They're absolutely delicious as is, but can also be iced or dipped in chocolate. I’m still rather obsessed with caramelised white chocolate so I chose to use it to sandwich two cookies together for an extra indulgent treat. As simple as these cookies are, a few little tips can really help you perfect them. Splurge a little and use real vanilla paste or extract - not only will you be able to see the little vanilla seeds in the cookies, but the authentic...

Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 01.02.2019

At the risk of sounding like a Masterchef judge, when it comes to food I’m definitely of the belief that flavour comes first. But when it looks as pretty as this Peach and White Chocolate Tart, that doesn’t hurt either! It’s amazing how just taking a little extra time to cut your fruit into shapes totally transforms a tart into a showstopper. Cookie cutters usually don’t come in sizes small enough for this purpose, but you can find a variety of fondant plunge cutters at your local baking store (usually sold in sets of 3). Like I said though, it’s all about...

Not that you ever need an excuse to show off your dessert skills, but the holiday season is a perfect time to do so. More than likely you'll be entertaining at some point, and will also have a little more time to put together something really special. Like these gorgeous White Chocolate Mousse domes with a shiny red mirror glaze! If you watch Masterchef, Zumbo's Just Desserts or the Great British Bake-off, you will know that entremets are all the rage. An entremet is basically a layered dessert consisting of mostly mousse and finished with a mirror glaze. Being an avid...

If you're looking for an easy edible gift this festive season, look no further! This Cranberry and Pistachio Fudge uses only white chocolate and condensed milk as the base, plus there's no sugar thermometer required. So technically it's not real fudge (made with butter, sugar and cream) but I'm all for shortcuts at this very busy time of year! It's hard to believe something so delicious takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. The white chocolate makes the fudge extra creamy and sweet, then the cranberries add a lovely bit of tartness. Add to that the crunchy chunks of gingersnaps and...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 25.06.2018

Blondies are perhaps considered to be the less popular sister of the Brownie. Why? Because, for most people chocolate trumps vanilla. However, after tasting these Brown Butter Blondies, I'm certainly questioning where my preference lies. By simply browning the butter beforehand, the flavour of these Blondies is enhanced with a delicious nuttiness. The texture is not cake-like, but dense and moist when you sink your teeth into one. A bit of crunch from some toasted hazelnuts, a burst of sweetness from white chocolate chunks and there you have it - the perfect Blondie. Ingredients: (Makes about 16) 175g salted butter (¾cup) 225g brown sugar eg...

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...

If you're craving something sweet and simple, look no further. What we have here is a fabulously easy recipe that will satisfy a sweet-tooth of the most epic proportions. These No-bake Nutella squares can be whipped up at a moments notice, and with a whole of jar of Nutella crammed in, you know they are going to taste amazing! Nutella-lovers, I suggest you try these cookies and this mug-cake too. Ingredients: 1 x 350g jar Nutella, at room temperature 130g butter, melted 90g icing sugar 20ml cocoa powder 250g digestive biscuits 200g white chocolate Directions: Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper or foil, with the edges...

I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend, so naturally pink macarons were in order! When it came to planning the flavour, I immediately thought of Raspberry and White Chocolate - one of my favourite combinations. Macarons being the tricky little guys that they are, it's best not add any fruit purée, so I used a concentrated raspberry flavour (available at baking stores). I love using creamy ganache as a filling for macarons but this time I decided to whip the ganache. The resulting texture is divine - it's light and fluffy, almost like a buttercream but less sweet.   Ingredients: Macarons: 75g water 150g...

If you find the idea of making a Milk Tart a bit overwhelming, then consider these 4 ingredient Mini Milk Tart Truffles. The recipe involves no more skill than melting chocolate, and the result is a crunchy, creamy, cinnamony treat. With that added cute factor! I was lucky enough to find this chocolate mould in the UK when I lived there. They are also available on Amazon in the US or UK (also known as peanut butter cup moulds). In South Africa your best bet would be The Chocolate Den, Value Baking Supplies or as a last resort you could use mini silicone cups or some tiny...
