Dulce de Leche Brownies


Let’s talk Brownies – we love them!  But…. some recipes can leave you underwhelmed and lacking the three things I think are ESSENTIAL in a good brownie – a thin papery crust on the top, a squidgy middle and a complete chocolatey taste.

12 – Buche de Noel Cake


A traditional Christmas recipe for a Yule log, just switched around a bit to turn it into a showstopper cake instead,  I love the stripy inside it makes – a perfect winter dessert!  It’s hugely rich and decadent (as you’ll see from the amount of chocolate needed) and the filling is a chocolate French buttercream.

5 – Baileys Chocolate Mousse


Have you planned your Christmas desserts?  You might need to squeeze these in somewhere – a simple luscious Baileys Chocolate Mousse and Shortbread Stars.  If you need desserts to serve to Mums to be and the elderly (check and check) then you’ll need to avoid uncooked eggs and this little mousse is a great way to do just that!
