14 Lazy Chocolate Recipes and September’s #WeShouldCocoa Link-up
It’s been rather quiet on the chocolate front this month. Everyone’s away on holiday or otherwise enjoying themselves. However, we’ve still managed to get 14 lazy chocolate recipes in. As you’d expect for the holiday month, most of the entries are no bake or easy bake. They all look delicious.
There’s a bit of a cereal theme running through the recipes, but also a courgette one. August is the month for courgette gluts after all. Cherries are also in season and we both start and end the entries with Black Forest inspired creations. Thanks to all the bloggers who share their fantastic recipes with #WeShouldCocoa and provide inspiration for the month ahead.
If you’d like to join in with next month’s #WeShouldCocoa, scroll down to the bottom of the post and you’ll find the September link-up. If you haven’t joined in before or need a reminder, you can find the guidelines on the We Should Cocoa page.
