13 Chocolate Recipes for Snowy Days
How about this gluten free dark chocolate whiskey cake from How to Cook Good Food to kick things off? It has a truffle like centre, is made with ground almonds and sounds absolutely sumptuous.
Just look at the rich colour in these beetroot coconut brownies from Everyday Healthy Recipes. Beetroot is not the only healthy ingredient however. Head on over to find what else they contain.
Brownies are always popular. Here we have these rather wonderful sounding browned butter nutella chocolate chip blondies from Something Sweet Something Savoury.
If brownies and tiffin are on offer I’m never sure which one to try. I find them both irresistible. Here’s a special one to show the love from Foodie Quine – Valentine Rocky Road.
I know someone in this household who would love me to make this perfect eggless tiramisu from Jo’s Kitchen Larder. I won’t give away the secret, but this version does sound rather lush.
We have homemade raspberry cream white chocolates from Only Crumbs Remain. Not only do they sound delicious, but they look so professional too.
Perhaps not the thing for really cold weather, but the chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae I made to celebrate my blog’s 9th birthday can be eaten with relish at pretty much any time of the year.
One day I’m going to master the art of piping, then I too can make something as pretty as these vegan chocolate hazelnut cupcakes from Curly’s Kitchen.
These fruit and nut chocolate truffles look so good, but when I found out the ingredients I was positively drooling. I’ll let you find out what’s in them over at Gluterama.
I have a thing for dates and really can’t resist them. Hmm, there seems to be quite a few things I find irresistible. Well these date and chocolate cookies from Apply to Face Blog are going straight onto my “must make very soon” list.
And with Easter very much in mind this month, here’s gorgeous recipe for crème egg brownies from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary. They are the best apparently and gluten-free too.
And for another crème egg special, why not try this slow cooker crème egg shortbread from Baking Queen 74? Yes, you read correctly. Lucy is up to her slow cooker magic again.
And to finish off our final 13 chocolate recipes, we have classic flavours and an indulgent vegan treat – vegan chocolate orange cheesecake from The Baking Explorer. Kat even made her own chocolate orange segments.
