Peanut Butter KitKat Cupcakes - Rich chocolate cupcakes with a creamy peanut butter centre, topped with chocolate buttercream and peanut butter KitKat bites I can't remember the last time I made cupcakes! I have a strange suspicion I haven't made even a single batch this year. Obviously this is something I need to change, because few things can be better than biting into a freshly baked fluffy cupcake, topped with plenty of smooth and creamy buttercream. Make that cupcake chocolate, and of ...

Toffee Crisp Rocky Road - Biscuit, marshmallows and chunks of Toffee Crisp all covered in creamy chocolate. A delicious quick and easy no bake treat! Until very recently I hadn't a Toffee Crisp in years, which is crazy considering they were one of my absolute favourite chocolate bars growing up. After we'd go swimming as children we were sometimes allowed to choose a chocolate bar from the sports centre vending machine, the ultimate treat! There were few things quite as exciting as putting ...

The perfect summer dessert! In March my little nephew James was born. I may be slightly biased, but he really is the most gorgeous little man. He has us all completely smitten and utterly in love. He's the first baby in the family, meaning Sunday was my brother's first Father's Day. With the weather ...

A new take on a classic treat! One of the highlights of being back in the UK is the ready access to affordable, delicious chocolate.

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 // 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
