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 or as a last resort you could use mini silicone cups or some tiny...

Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 24.04.2017

We have our Aussie and Kiwi friends to thank for these absolutely scrumptious biscuits! Let me explain why. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance which is celebrated every year on 25 April - the anniversary of the Anzac's landing at Gallipoli, in Turkey during World War I. Anzac biscuits contain no eggs, as these were scarce during the war. Many people believe that the biscuits were sent with soldiers by their wives as they were not only a good source of energy but also kept well during transportation. If you do a little research you'll find that this...

Oreo truffles - the original cookie truffles! I couldn't exactly post the other two varieties (Lemon Cheesecake Truffles and 3 Ingredient Strawberry Cheesecake Truffles) without posting the original, and in my opinion best. A wonderfully simple treat composed of a soft Oreo centre wrapped in creamy, sweet chocolate. Just like the other cookie truffles, these are super-easy to make. Ingredients: 1 x 176g box Original Oreo's 100g full fat cream cheese eg Philadelphia block, softened 200g white or milk chocolate Directions: Blitz the cookies in a food processor until you have quite fine crumbs. Remove a tablespoon of the crumbs and set aside for later. Add...

For the lemon cheesecake lovers out there, here's quick way to get your fix.  These truffles are a cute and compact version of that much-loved classic dessert. You may have seen my 3 Ingredient Strawberry Cheesecake Truffles post a few weeks ago, and these are just as easy and tasty but with a zesty, lemon tang. There are two ways to make these, depending on how much of a lemon fan you are. Using Bakers Lemon Creams  will give you a really strong lemon flavour. Personally I found it a little too strong, so I came up with an alternative recipe where you can...

It may surprise you just how easy it is to make your own Real Fruit Jelly Sweets. Just pick your favourite juice, add gelatine and a little honey and lemon juice, and you are A for away. As an added bonus, you can control the sweetness - the amount of honey/sugar you add depends on how sweet you like it and also how sweet the juice is. You may even choose to leave it out altogether. Don't skip the lemon juice though - the gelatine tends to dull the fruity flavour a little and the lemon juice gives it the boost...

Sometimes I'm in the mood to make something both cute and delicious, but I don't have a whole day on my hands to make cake pops. With these sweet little truffles, you can achieve that cute factor in a fraction of the time and with only 3 ingredients.

Ingredients: 1 x...

If you are on the hunt for a quick and delicious home-made gift, look no further. This white chocolate bark is so easy to make, and the bright colours just scream "festive", making it perfect for this time of year. In order to get beautifully glossy chocolate that will break with a sharp snap, you need to temper it. But don't let that word scare you! It's easy to do. The reason we temper chocolate is to encourage the cocoa butter in the chocolate to harden into a specific crystalline pattern, which maintains the gloss and texture for a long time. When chocolate is melted and...

Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 15.09.2016

Some people love peanut butter, some people hate it. I fall into the love category, my hubby - the hate. This means I don't make peanut butter flavoured goodies all that often. So when I do, I don't hold back on the peanut butter. These yummy peanut butter bars are made with a whole jar of the stuff! That's right, an entire jar. Apart from that, there are just a few ingredients, and the recipe is so quick and easy your kids could probably make them! For those of you who have ever tried a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, you'll know that peanut butter and chocolate...

I first tasted Banoffee Pie many years ago. My sister's friend was visiting from England and she offered to make us a British dessert one evening. Her Banoffee Pie was an absolute hit and her recipe has been used by my family many (hundred) times since then. The name "Banoffee" comes from the combination of the words "banana" and "toffee" although the filling is really more of a caramel than a toffee. Before Caramel Treat was invented we would boil a tin of condensed milk  for several hours to make the caramel, but happily now it's as simple as opening up a tin! Banoffee Pie...
