A fruit bowl of ripening pears and some leftover dark chocolate lead to this DELICIOUS cake. Albeit pretty much all cakes are delicious but the combination of pear, dark chocolate and cinnamon turn a typical ‘boring’ naked cake into something spectacular. This cake was a crowd favourite, my colleagues are even requesting it become a regular fixture.
Who doesn’t like rocky road? Not only is it delicious but it is super easy to make. It is great for a last minute treat…. Yummo!
Coffee & Walnut Cupcakes
These moody cupcakes are always popular and go great with your morning coffee. The crushed walnuts offer a great texture and the coffee cream cheese icing creates a smooth finish. If you love coffee you will LOVE these!
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.
Healthier Peanut Butter Cups
These homemade Reece’s peanut butter cups are an healthier alternative and so moorish. They have been made with natural peanut butter and 82% dark chocolate. Great after dinner treat.
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!
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 I originally made this recipe with my cousin Rosa a couple of years ago.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.
Mint Chocolate Cheesecake
This silky dessert is super easy and the combination of mint and dark chocolate is a great way to finish the night. You can whip it up in 20 minutes earlier in the day so it is great for entertaining. This dessert can be served as a large cake (pictured below), in large muffin tins or deconstructed in cool jars.
