13 Charming Chocolate Recipes and October’s We Should Cocoa

13 Charming Chocolate Recipes

We Should Cocoa | 1st October 2016 | By

We Should Cocoa kicks off year seven with these 13 charming chocolate recipes. A new year means a new style and in case you missed it, we are no longer doing themed challenges. Anything that incorporates chocolate in one of its many forms can be included – as long as it’s vegetarian friendly of course.

This month’s We Should Cocoa seems to be heavily influenced by the much loved Great British Bake Off. How sad I am that the production company has sold out and the BBC that has nurtured and developed the programme for so many years has been cold shouldered. But I digress; here, in the order in which they arrived, I give you 13 charming chocolate recipes. You’ll find the October linky at the bottom of the page. Please join in. All photos are pinned to the We Should Cocoa Pinterest Board, so do hop on over to see some of the previous recipes.

      Yes Heidi, I know what you mean, I’m always a bit regretful when I do these round-ups that I can’t try everything.

    Lovely round up choclette – making me quite hungry – my freezer is full of enough sweet food that it is hard to find an excuse to bake but I hope to get this dire situation under control (ha ha) and find something for this month

      Oh, how I wish our freezer was better stocked. It’s full of very worthy stuff, but it would be so good to be able to pull out a relatively healthy treat when I need one, rather than dashing down to the shops and buying a very unhealthy one.

    Mmm what a marvellous roundup of some wonderful chocolatey recipes! I would definitely like to try out a lot of these recipes. If only I could have a virtual slice! Thanks for including my challah.

      Me too Lucy. A virtual slice would be good, but I think I’d prefer an actual slice. Your challah is fantastic. Thanks for joining in.

      The secret is, to try a little bit of all of them – or at least that’s what I wish I could do šŸ˜‰

      Hehe, exactly Nico. Blondies should come with a warning though, they are seriously good.

    Lovely round-up Choclette. Sorry I didn’t get to join this month….. sadly the couple of Chocolate experiments I made were a bit of a disaster and need some re-working…. I am sure their time will come though….. x
