17 Marvellous Chocolate Recipes and April’s We Should Cocoa
Well I thought March was all about Mother’s Day, but is seems I’m wrong – again! We have 17 marvellous chocolate recipes for this month’s We Should Cocoa, but not one Mother’s Day cake, bake or other treat. We do have brownies for St Patrick’s Day, cookies for Red Nose Day and a variety of chocolate treats for Easter, which isn’t so very far away now. Do take a look and follow the links of any you feel particularly inspired by.
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 April link-up. If you haven’t joined in before or need a reminder, you can find the guidelines on the We Should Cocoa page.
17 Marvellous Chocolate Recipes
Chonnie from Baked to Imperfection brings us the very first Easter recipe of the season. She baked these mini egg millionaire’s shortbread as part of her first blog birthday celebrations.
There’s more Easter fun from Camilla at Fab Food 4 All with her easy creme egg cookies. They are crispy on the outside, gooey in the middle and made with pecan nuts.
Happy 2nd blog anniversary to Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. She chose to celebrate by crafting these gorgeous hazelnut and caramel chocolates.
Shaheen over at A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table made this glorious upside down Sicilain blood orange chocolate cake to please her husband, but as it turned out she rather liked it too.
A cake come dessert is the best type of cake I reckon. Caroline made a red velvet cheesecake to fulfil this function for a late Valentine’s dinner.
With a nod to St Patrick’s Day my contribution to March’s #WeShouldCocoa were these luscious black velvet cheesecake swirl brownies with stout caramel sauce.
Great minds think alike. Kat over at The Baking Explorer had a similar idea, but used Baileys rather than stout – Baileys cheesecake chocolate brownies.
Suelle over at Mainly baking brings us an unusual but delightful combination of flavours in these date and ginger chocolate chip biscuits.
We have another Easter contribution from Jenny at Mummy Mishaps. Who could resist a slices of this Malteser bunny & mini egg white chocolate cheesecake?
Red velvet is popular this month and now I realise why. Stuart at Cakeyboi made these red velvet cookies to mark Red Nose Day.
If you’ve never made your own chocolate custard, you can find out how at Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen.
Tiffin is one of my favourite things so I’m really glad to see this no bake creme egg biscuit cake amongst these 17 marvellous chocolate recipes. I’m hoping Kate at The Gluten Free Alchemist has made this just for me.
Lucy over at Baking Queen has made a chocolate Malteser loaf cake. Perfect for a red nose cake sale or Easter, who could resist?
I’m a massive matcha fan and I’m now dying to try these vegan chocolate matcha truffles from Nico at Yumsome.
Johanna’s daughter Sylvia is a very lucky girl. I would have loved to have a birthday hedgehog cake when I was a child. I’ve always had a fondness for hedgehogs AND chocolate cake. Doesn’t he look cute?
Much as I love cake, I find it almost impossible to resist a good bun. These cinnamon and chocolate hazelnut buns from Dom at Belleau Kitchen are completely irresistible.
Now if you’re feeling you need a break from all these sweet treats, Elizabeth gives us this super healthy black bean & hemp brownie protein shake.
