Brownie & Slices
Brownie Santa Hats
I make these bad boys every Christmas. They are absolutely delicious and very festive… they look just like SANTA HATS! These guys won’t last long and are bound to put you on Santa’s good list.
Avocado Chocolate Brownie
Now I love a good chocolate brownie and so I was quite eager to try this version using avocado. Too be honest I wasn’t expecting much but wow, if I hadn’t of known I would of thought it was a typical delicious unhealthy brownie but this baby is a great alternative. It ticks a number of health requirements including Gluten & Dairy Free, Paleo and even Vegan. I will be sure to be making this again.
No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Bars
I stumbled across this recipe when a colleague recommended Detoxinista as a cool health conscious website. As my love of peanut butter and chocolate is no secret I thought I would give it a try. So glad I did as oh my it is amazing! Definitely not something you can have all the time but in terms of a treat this is one of the healthier ones. It is also Gluten and can be Dairy Free.
Cacoa, Coconut Digestive Bites
I have been trying a few ‘healthier’ recipes over the past week and I have been presently surprised with the outcome. This coconut biscuit is adapted from Lorna Jane and is Gluten & Dairy Free.
Coffee, Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Caramel Slice
Dish would have to be one of my favourite NZ food magazines. I snapped up this recipe from one of their recent posts and it is to die for. Created by Sarah Tuck of From My Kitchen this slice needs to be handy the next time you have friends over for coffee. Mum and Dad are visiting and they have given it the thumbs up… so moorish!
Peanut Butter Brownie
Peanut butter and chocolate is an ace combo. This recipe combines my favourite brownie recipe with addition of Whittakers Peanut Butter Chocolate. It is a great twist on a classic chocolate brownie.
Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie
Cheesecake and brownie would have to be two of my favourites. This easy recipe combines the two and makes a great wee treat. Perfect for dessert and great served up with a dollop of natural yoghurt.
White Chocolate and Raspberry Slice
White chocolate and raspberry is a popular flavour match and loved by many. This slice is a little creation of mine that I made with some leftover ingredients. The use of freeze-dried raspberries adds a burst of flavour and jazz’s up a basic no bake slice. This recipe works well doubled if you have a few mouths to feed.
Mars Bar Slice
This is my take on a friend, Jaclyn’s, Mars Bar slice. It only requires 4 ingredients and can be whipped up in about 10 minutes. Great for those last minute guests or children’s birthday parties.
Chocolate Fudge Brownies
There is a little story behind these brownies. A great friend of mine, Izaak is reknown for his rich melt in your mouth brownies. I have been unable to twist his arm (yet) to get his version but this one is pretty close. It is rich, smooth and absolute heaven. You can opt to leave the chocolate chunks out if you wish, the brownie works either way.
Oaty Ginger Slice
This ginger slice recipe is a cross between a traditional ginger crunch and an ANZAC biscuit. It’s oaty base adds a little more texture and substance to a normal ginger slice.
Gooey Lemon Slice
This delicious slice is my go to lemon flavoured treat. It is like a gooey, sponge like tart that is either perfect just on its own or served with a dollop of natural yoghurt.
White Chocolate and Macadamia Slice
White chocolate and macadamia is a common match up. This slice embraces that while adding a tint of caramel from the baked condensed milk. It is a very simple slice and easy to whip up if you don’t have much time.
Dark Chocolate Almond Slice
This slice is very moorish and even I cannot eat too much of it. I originally made this recipe with my cousin Rosa a couple of years ago. This recipe is adapted from the Baradene School cookbook, my aunty Shayne was on the committee that created the book and there are some great recipes in there.
