Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 08.02.2022

I’ve long since been a fan of Millionaires Shortbread. If you’ve never had this decadent treat, it’s made up of crisp shortbread, a gooey caramel layer and finally a layer of chocolate. Very rich indeed, which is probably how it got its name! As if this treat wasn't tempting enough, I’ve made my own version with dark, milk and white chocolate on top. This looks incredibly impressive, but is simple to achieve with nothing more than a skewer. Plus, you don’t need a sugar thermometer to make the easy caramel layer, just plenty of Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter for that perfect...

These Triple Chocolate Brownie Hearts are the perfect sweet treat to spoil your loved ones with this Valentine's Day. Not only are they absolutely delicious (I've yet to find anyone who can stop at just one!), the recipe is easy enough to make with the kids - they'll simply love decorating them! This is my go-to brownie recipe - soft and fudgy, with a rich cocoa flavour. For a little extra indulgence I've added white, milk and dark chocolate chunks too. Because why not?Creating the pretty heart shapes requires nothing more than a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Admittedly you'll have a...

When Cadbury launched their Limited Edition Festive range last year, I absolutely fell in love with the Dairy Milk Festive Gingerbread flavour (and gobbled up more slabs than I'd like to admit). This year, when Cadbury asked me to make an easy Christmas treat that kids would love, it was the Cadbury Dream Cinnamon Crunch I reached for. For me, the combo of creamy Dream and crunchy cinnamon bits brings to mind flavours of Milk Tart - and who doesn't love Milk Tart? To make these Blondie Christmas Trees, I've incorporated large chunks of Cadbury Dream Cinnamon Crunch into...

It's not hard to see why S'mores are so popular. The combination of crunchy biscuits, melted chocolate and gooey toasted marshmallow is all kinds of wonderful! I took inspiration from these glorious treats to come up with a Halloween-inspired dessert. With a buttery biscuit crumb base, rich chocolate mousse layer and ghoulish marshmallow ghost topping, these Spooky Chocolate Mousse Bars have all the S'mores flavour with an extra touch of scary! I used an easy, egg-free chocolate mousse recipe which contains marshmallows to help the mousse set so that the bars can be sliced easily. Of course, making the little...

Happy World Chocolate Day! It seemed only right that I share a delicious chocolate recipe with you today. However, this recipe is more than just another chocolate recipe. It may actually be my new favourite recipe. In. The. World. A few years ago, I posted a Milo Cake with Condensed Milk Icing recipe. It went viral and is still one of my most popular recipes on the blog! A friend suggested I convert the recipe into brownies, and what a bright idea that was! I already knew that the flavour combo was a winner (I mean who doesn't love...

I love making cookie bars! With a texture that lies somewhere between a brownie and a cookie, they are deliciously soft and chewy with a crisp crust. Another reason I love them is they are fair bit quicker to make than cookies, as there is no dough-chilling or rolling required. Simply press the mixture into a pan and bake! These particular cookie bars are flavoured with creamy peanut butter and loaded with chocolate chips. Eat them warm with ice cream for dessert, or snack on them just as they are. There really is no time of day that's not ideal...

Sponsored According to a recent poll I ran on Instagram, many of us are barely aware that Easter is just a few days away! With all the goings-on in the world right now, it’s fair to say that most of us have been a bit distracted, and feeling a tad overwhelmed. So I decided to bring you all an extra-cheerful Easter treat – these Easter Custard Blondies made with Ultra Mel Vanilla Custard! It’s pretty hard to be sad when you’re looking at these gorgeous bright colours… and once you take a bite of one, I have no doubt it will bring...

From a foodie point of view, Easter is definitely my favourite holiday. Who wouldn't love a holiday that involves large amounts of chocolate and spicy hot cross buns! For someone who loves to bake like me, I never have a shortage of ideas around this time of year. Rocky road may not be the most sophisticated of these ideas, however, I can guarantee you it will bring a smile to even the grumpiest of faces! The variety of textures is what makes rocky road so delicious - a bit of crunch, a bit of marshmallowy softness, crisp sugary shells and lots...

A few weeks ago I was in the mood for something really decadent and thought back to my Chocolate Chip Cookie Oreo Brownies. With a choc-chip cookie layer, Oreo layer and brownie layer, they truly are an indulgent treat! I wanted to create a variation on those, something equally decadent but with a different flavour. Peanut butter cookies are one of my weaknesses, and I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. So that's what led me to make these Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies. Instead of Oreo's for the middle layer, I used chocolate-coated peanuts, which add a...

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...
