Healthy homemade chocolate, fruit and nut trail mix

I’ve started buying little packets of trail mix this year because I promised myself to only nibble on healthier snacks. I’ve been going through indecent amounts, so it’s high time for me to prepare some of my own homemade trail mix. You can play around with healthy ingredients, but keep in the chocolate. Healthy dark…

Chocolate and Clementine Popcorn

Making homemade sweet popcorn is super easy and fun. Holding the lid down as the hard little kernels loudly pop and bash against the sides of the saucepan never gets old. There is an endless amount of spices you could add, but in this recipe I’ve gone for something a little different. My Chocolate and…

Favourite Halloween Treats of top bloggers

With Halloween round the corner we are bombarded with brilliantly batty, ghoulishly good, terrifyingly tempting, family fun recipes. So, in an attempt to see the (haunted) woods from the (spooky) trees, I wanted to gather together the very favourite Halloween Treats of top bloggers. I got to asking some of the best bloggers for their favourite…

Strawberry and Pistachio cupcakes

My love affair with cupcakes lives on. Even tho’ fashion has changed. After cupcake mania, I think cake pops were followed by flavoured meringues which have made way to free-from bakes. I’d like to think these delightful strawberry and pistachio cupcakes are a bit like the French bob. Super fashionable from time to time but still…

Pimp your Victorian Sponge (33 ways).

There are times in your life when knowing how to pimp your Victorian sponge cake can seriously save the day! I was responsible for making a Victorian sponge cake for my Nan’s 90th Birthday party. Making a classic Victorian sponge was a bit of a no brainer, but I wanted to make alternative Victorian sponges…

Sticky Toffee Ice-cream Blocks (on sticks!)

These Sticky Toffee Ice Cream Blocks are an incredible flavour made with soft dates, sticky toffee pudding, toffee fudge sauce and salted almonds AND they are on individual sticks. Eeeeee! They are a favourite of Matthew but it really is a crowd pleasing dessert! These really do taste of Sticky Toffee Pudding but they are…

Raspberry and Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Daiquiri

Homemade cocktails are one of life pleasures. Ones with herbary and sugar round the rim, classic ones in Martini glasses, ones that sparkle with bursting Champagne bubbles, but mainly, for me, quick and easy fruity cocktails like this Raspberry and Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Daiquiri. This summer berry cocktail one is delicious, creamy and semi frozen.…

Eton Mess Ice-cream Cake

It’s warming up and the strawberries are tasting divine. It’s the season of Eton Mess! My girlie Charlotte is passionate about Eton Mess. So, I’ve mixed it up a bit and come up with a scrumptious Eton Mess Ice-cream cake. Yes, an Eton Mess Cake! Made from ice-cream! It makes a wonderful family summer dessert. As ideas…

Frozen breakfast bars

These frozen breakfast bars are a fun way to have a really healthy start to the day. They also make a refreshing snack anytime of the day. As they are full of healthier choices, you can indulge guilt free! If you are looking for an alternative way to get your family to eat breakfast or…

Frozen Honey Yogurt with Lemon curd puddles topped with Lemon snow

It’s this time of year in England when you may be warmed in springlike sunshine, or equally it could snow. Either is possible in the space of a week. My frozen honey yogurt dessert represents the weather in March. Honey sweetened yogurt looks towards the summer, sharp lemon snow suggests winter still lingers.

Mother’s Day Chocolate and Raspberry ‘Millefeuille’

Instead of handing over a box of chocolates for a Mother’s Day gift, turn the chocolates into thoughtful and scrumptious Chocolate and Raspberry ‘Millefeuille’. These can make a perfect Mother’s Day dessert too! Handmade gifts for Mother’s Day always go down very well and handing over a homemade gift this Mother’s Day will gain you…

Toast and Marmalade chocolate slices

I adore quality handmade chocolate bars. Especially unusual flavours such as my Toast and Marmalade Slices. If I added up the hours of my life spent dreaming up exciting gifts made with chocolate, I could probably have grown a cocoa tree plantation to feed my addiction. These Toast and Marmalade chocolate slices do make a wonderful…
