We Should Cocoa – Anything Goes Round-Up

We Should Cocoa 4

We Should Cocoa | 30th August 2015 | By

Lots of chocolatey goodness in this month’s We Should Cocoa. As we had a nice easy holiday theme of Anything Goes, there’s even more of a diversity of entries than usual.

    I’ve had a busy month and completely forgot WSC. The irony is that I had bakes I could have added to the link-up! So many great looking dishes here!

      Even the best of us can have too much chocolate sometimes – or so I’m told.

    OMG all wonderful, I haven’t been baking much with cocoa or chocolate recently, but i have been making drinking chocolate with proper chocolate melted in hot milk – maybe I should have been cheeky and entered that. As always lovely delicious round up.

      Hot chocolate made with real chocolate is definitely welcome Shaheen. I quite fancy a mug of that myself right now.

      The trouble I find with these round-ups is that I usually want to try everything Lucy and it’s just not possible – very unfair!

    lovely array of chocolatey goodness here – my eye was caught by quite a few of them, but the marquise is on my to make list anyway so will go check Janey’s post!

      That marquise does look rather wonderful Nazima. I’ve made one before, but it didn’t look as good as that one.
