Hello everybody.

My lovely aunt called yesterday saying she’d like to try one of my cakes, anything with lots of chocolate she said.

First thing that came to my mind was my usual daisies cake but then I thought why not to try another version, chocolate cake filled with chocolate cream and Ferrero Rocher and topped with the same.

Final outcome was really amazing and elegant, something all chocolate lovers will love for sure.

Hello everybody.

Had these three ripened bananas in my fruit basket that said please use me 😀😀
Best thing to do was this recipe I always pops out on Facebook, easy energy balls that serves great as snack or breakfast even.

Just mash your bananas, add oatmeal, crushed biscuits, honey and peanut butter (optional), pinch of cinnamon then mix well and form into balls.

I drizzled chocolate on top as well, really yummy 😋

Chocolate Mousse.

wp-1454959954050.jpg

Hello everybody.

Took some balloons from my friend’s mom who usually keeps lots of them stand by so as to give kids that visit her, not that I’m a kid but i wanted them to try doing chocolate cups. Saw this method many times in several websites and always eager to try it.

wp-1454959946420.jpg

Though it’s supposed to be an easy task but actually it’s a bit tricky, some balloons popped and chocolate was all over the kitchen and some stayed stuck to the chocolate though I sprayed oil on them, well end result was four out of ten good cups not bad as a first trial.My Facebook friend told me it’s better to wash and dry balloons and add butter to chocolate better than greasing the balloons, next time maybe.

 

I filled cups with chocolate mousse, my simple light recipe that I usually do then decorated them with white chocolate and croquant.

Ingredients and method:

* 3 cups milk.

* 3 tablespoons custard powder.

* 1 big spoon butter.

* 1 cup melted chocolate or one big bar cooking chocolate ( today I used  the amount left from chocolate fountain )

* 3 tablespoons cocoa powder.

* 1 small pack cream.

* 1/2 cup sugar.

wp-1454959959329.jpg

* heat milk with custard till mixture thickens.

* add chocolate,sugar,butter and mix well.

* add cream.

*pour into chocolate cups or small glass pots.

*  decorate with anything you like, biscuits,coconuts or cocoa powder.

Peanut Butter Snickers Chocolate Chips Cookies.

wpid-wp-1448902460152.jpg

Hello everybody.

Today’s order is for a group of lovely teachers as a small giveaway, they ordered five different cookies for each.

Made the usual three kinds of crinkles, rock cookies and these cute little heart shaped ones of peanut butter and chocolate chips but added Snickers chunks in them, so yummy and cute.

Though teachers really deserve more than this but I hope love and cherish for their efforts are tasted and felt in my cookies, God bless all teachers around the world.

Ingredients and method:

* 1/2 cup butter ( reduce it a bit if using heavy chocolates, I used chocolate chips and 4 small Snickers bars)

* 1/2 cup peanut butter.

* 3/4 cup brown sugar.

* 1 egg.

* 2 tablespoons milk.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 1/2 small spoon baking soda.

* 1/2 tsp baking powder.

* 1 3/4 cups flour.

* 3/4 cup chocolate chips or crushed ones of any kind.

* Mix butters and sugar well till creamy then add egg,vanilla,milk.

* add flour,baking soda and powder then last thing add the chocolates.

*Shape into balls then flatten them a bit,usually I use a coffee cup bottom.

* bake in a medium heated oven for 10-13 minutes or till bottoms are golden.

* cool then keep in cookie jar or tightly closed tin.

These will sure put a big smile on a child’s face specially with a hot chocolate in a cold day :)

Lemon Crinkles.

Hello everybody.

Another gift today for special people who asked for chocolate crinkles so I thought I’ll add some lemony ones with them.

Recipe is simple but though I felt something was wrong when I was making the balls cause dough was so sticky and loose but I made a mistake not to add more flour, I should’ve really cause the melted upon baking and got stuck all together.Taste is good but chocolate rules for sure.

Ingredients and method :

2 1/2 cups flour.

1 1/2 tsp baking powder.

1/2 tsp salt.

1 cup sugar.

2 tsp lemon zest.

1/2 cup butter.

1/4 cup lemon juice.

2 eggs.

1 tsp vanilla.

1/2 cup caster sugar.

 

#beat sugar, lemon zest and butter till creamy.
# add eggs vanilla, lemon juice.
# add baking powder, salt and flour.
# cool in fridge for 30 minutes.
#roll to balls then coat with caster sugar.
# flatten a bit with the fork.
# bake for 10-12 minutes in a medium heated oven.
