Chocolate Ice Cream

If you don’t know by now, I’m a major chocoholic. I practically inhale the stuff, and there are always a couple of family blocks in the freezer.  I’m known by name at the Starbucks near Miss G’s school, and they can almost recite my order. Even Miss G has inherited my great chocolate love, she…

Kit Kat Crunch Fudge

One of my local cheapie shops has a great selection of sweet stuff, and recently they’ve had out a big range of different Kit Kats. Normal, Chunky, mint, orange, green tea, and all shades in between; it’s Kit Kat heaven. And best of all, it’s all cheap! What else am I to do but make…

Disney’s “Frozen” Elsa’s Icicles

How crazy has the whole “Frozen” phenomenon been? Even months after it’s been out, there is still so much merchandise out there, and every time I go out to my local shopping centre I see at least 2 little girls dressed up as Elsa. I don’t remember a Disney 2D movie being this popular since…

Sausage Rolls

As I wrote in my last post (Chocolate Peanut Butter Spiders), there are some foods that are a must at an Australian kid’s party. Or really, at any Aussie lunch/afternoon function. And tradition dictates that there must be at least 1 item on the menu that has puff pastry as the primary ingredient. For if…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Spiders

What’s this? More fantastic 90’s yummy treats? Yes, I’m going to make you all relive all your childhood birthday parties with these goodies! Think back to any kids party you attended during the 1990’s in Australia and you’ll remember that the menu’s were all pretty simple and all very similar. Chocolate crackles, honey joys, fairy…

Chocolate Freckles

What a month! Miss G had her 1st birthday party last week, so I’ve spent the past month planning the menu, then the week before the party getting the food ready, so please forgive me for the lack of posting on here! We’ve also been attending some of Miss G’s friends parties as well, so…

Chocolate Mudcake with White Chocolate Ganache

Today’s post is about chocolate cake, and lots of it! I was asked to make a cake for CTO’s cousin Miss A’s confirmation by my sister-in-law, and my only guides from Miss A was that she likes chocolate and her favourite colours are blue and green. I did a Pinterest search for inspiration, and this…

Sweet Chilli Cream Cheese Dip

Is anybody else a big fan of those Chilli Philly pourovers? My CTO and I love them, but always have trouble getting a good chilli sauce/Philly ratio. We eat it out of the tub gradually and don’t actually tip it upside down like we’re supposed to, so we always have hardly any sauce at the…
