Salted Caramel M&M Cookies

September 26, 2019

Who doesn’t love a good salted caramel sauce? I don’t think I know of one person. It’s sweet, salty, gooey and made of all the good things in life like butter and cream 🙂 Now imagine that inside an M&M sweet. Picture a soft chewy salted caramel centre surrounded by milk chocolate and M&M’s famous candy coating. Yum right? Right.

Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Icing

February 8, 2019

Dark-Chocolate-and-Vanilla-Cupcakes-with-Milk-Chocolate-Icing-1

Time to share a very nice, very simple recipe for some delicious Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Icing. These cupcakes are topped with the kind of rich and smooth icing that will have you eating a cupcake as a kid does, icing first and all over your face, before you bite down into soft vanilla sponge dotted with chunks of real dark chocolate.

I was chatting with some of my friends on Whatsapp a few days back about bran muffins and who has a good recipe for some, which prompted me to get my cookbooks out page through a few recipes. I was adamant to bake something that was going to throw the results of my latest gym session straight out the window!

The best Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookies

January 22, 2019

The-best-Chocolate-Chip-and-Walnut-Cookies7

A few days ago I said I would share the recipe for the best Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookies. This recipe is one of my all-time favourites because it never ever fails. I don’t think I have ever used it and come out on the other side with a tray of cookies that will not have you grinning like you’ve just won the cookie lotto! Which by the way I think should totally be a thing. You enter, you win millions of cookies, you die happy. The end.

Just like most of my recipes, this one is short and easy and you can add whatever you like to the base to make all sorts of deliciously soft, slightly chewy cookies. For this particular round, I added some dark chocolate chips and a good handful of walnuts but you can add anything really, chocolate chips, M&M’s, pecan nuts, white chocolate, cranberries, crunchy cereal, peanut butter, speckled eggs etc.
