Kinder Bueno Cheesecake

Kinder Bueno Cheesecake 7 : www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

A delicious no bake cheesecake packed with Kinder Bueno and chunks of Kinder chocolate, and topped with drizzled chocolate and even more Kinder Bueno! When we were children our summer holidays were always in Switzerland, in the pretty lake side town of Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland.  My Dad, an old romantic, would always insist we travel the whole way there by train. A journey that would see us setting off from London in the early hours of the morning, winding our way through France or ...

Peanut Butter & Jelly Brownies

Peanut butter & Jelly brownies // www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

Fudgey rich chocolate Peanut Butter & Jelly Brownies If you're a British child of the 80s, like me, the concept of Peanut Butter and Jelly is probably a relatively new one for you. The idea of these sandwiches, that frankly sounded disgusting, first entered my consciousness through 90s films. I can't remember the exact ones, probably something like Beethoven, where the kids would throw together peanut butter and jelly sandwiches if let to fend for themselves for lunch, as kids always seemed ...

Chocolate Creme Egg Fudge Cake

A decadent chocolate fudge cake filled with Creme Egg buttercream, and topped with drippy dark chocolate ganache and plenty of Creme Eggs. The perfect Easter showstopper!   Easter is always one of my favourite times of the year, I can't get enough of spring flowers, blossom, baby lambs, hot cross buns and, of course, Easter eggs. This year, however, I'm especially excited. I'm flying home for Easter, and I CAN'T WAIT! Just 3 more days and I'll be boarding a plane back to England for two ...

Loaded Nacho Pancakes

Loaded Nacho Pancakes // www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

Baked pancakes topped with spicy black beans, and loaded with toppings and smothered in cheese. A delicious savoury treat for Pancake Day.   It's Pancake Day tomorrow - hurrah! We're not actually having pancakes on Pancake Day this year as we'll be out the house in the evening, so I made these ones early to still get my pancake fix in. I'm also quite tempted to squeeze in a few more early ones tonight.... Why shouldn't Monday's finish with extra pancakes? I usually flit around before ...

Meringue Kisses – Three Ways

Mini Meringue Kisses - Three Ways // www.scarletscorchdropeprs.com

Meringue kisses, made three ways. Perfect little treats for Valentine's Day. Recently one of my good friends who got engaged over Christmas (yay!) told me about her wedding venue hunt. She may have found her venue, and its all incredibly exciting. One thing she said got me thinking, she told me trying not to get too bogged down in the need for perfection on her day. It made me reflect about our wedding day last summer. It did, I'm afraid bring out the perfectionist streak in me, and start me ...

Mini Bakewell Tarts

mini-bakewell-tarts-www-scarletscorchdroppers-com

  Mini melt in the mouth bakewell tarts filled with raspberry jam and topped with almonds I first made these little tarts way back when last year when the Bake Off was still on our screens. The bakers had to make Mary Berry's bakewell tart for their technical challenge, complete with pretty pink feathered icing. I remember realising just how long it had been since I'd had a good bakewell, so naturally I headed straight to the kitchen. I love a nice big slice of bakewell tart, but these ...

Malteaser Mini Reindeer No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

Malteaser Mini Reindeer Cheesecake 3 // www.scarletscorchdroppers.co

If you read my last post you might have seen we've had a broken oven for the past month. Last week it finally got replaced, and I celebrated over the weekend by baking up a big batch of mince pies. Before our new one arrived I was bracing myself to enter the festive season without a working oven. I don’t think a year has gone by without me baking mince pies, or gingerbread. Ovens aren't a standard appliance in Hong Kong. You'll only really find them in the apartments built with expats in mind. ...

Malteaser Millionaires’ Shortbread

Malteaser Millionaires Shortbread // www.scarletscorchdroppers.com

Considering this is my first recipe for December, it's rather strange that it's not a Christmas recipe. Especially considering how festive I'm feeling this year. We went to our first Christmas market last night. Hong Kong hasn't quite got the hang of pulling off the perfect Christmas market, but bless them, they try. There wasn't a mince pie in sight, but we had our first mulled wine of the season and I still came away feeling very Christmassy. We've set up what is possibly the world's ...
