If you scroll down to the bottom of the post you’ll also find the January link up for this month’s We Should Cocoa. Please do join in. I wish you all a very Happy New Year.
14 Celebratory Chocolate Recipes
Chocolate cups make such a good container for all sorts of goodies. Kat at Baking Explorer went one better with these syllabub star cups.
Fudge makes a perfect gift for the sweet toothed among us. I’m itching to try this raspberry & white chocolate fudge from Angela at Only Crumbs Remain.
If you like your chocolate in liquid form you’ll likely want to try some of this vegan nutella cream liqueur from Nico at Yumsome.
Brownies are so hard to resist and even more so with the inclusion of mulled wine. You’ll find the recipe for these gorgeous gluten free mulled wine chocolate brownies over at Cakes by Noah
I also went gluten free with my festive We Should Cocoa bake last month. These chocolate pistachio biscotti with orange and cardamom were delicious.
These banana and chocolate bran muffins from Jo at Seven Green Apples are made with kefir, so they get a big bonus from me 🙂
No festive occasion is complete without some sort of meringue. This prodigious pav from Jenny at Apply to Face Blog is a fuss free regular at her dining room table.
Slabs of chocolatey goodness packed with fruit and nuts is another festive must have. Dom over at Belleau Kitchen even found some vegetarian friendly marshmallows to go into his Christmas gluten-free rocky road which makes them even more appealing.
Who doesn’t love pizza? Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe came up with this fab chocolate and blackberry pizza made with cream cheese and maple syrup. it sounds quite exotic, but how I want a slice.
If you have any tins of chestnut puree lurking in your cupboards, you could follow Cakeyboi’s example and make these chocolate and chestnut cupcakes.
Suelle from Mainly Baking also baked with a combination of chocolate and chestnut – chestnut flour brownies.
Just look at this splendid layered chocolate-mint Christmas tree from Gluten Free Alchemist. It’s gluten free, of course.
When it comes to festive gifts, what could be more adorable than one of these snowman brownie pops from Sarah at Tales from the Kitchen Shed?
And finally for something to hang from the tree, we have chocolate truffle Christmas baubles from Lucy at Baking Queen.
