11 Marvellous Chocolate Recipes

Chocolate Magic Cake

There’s no better place to start than with Angela’s chocolate orange magic cake. Why is it magic? Head over to Only Crumbs Remain to find out.


Double Chocolate Pavlova

An irresistible double chocolate pavlova with Nutella cream & Maltesers from Jo’s Kitchen Larder.


Japanese Chocolate Truffles

These Japanese chocolate truffles from Pebble Soup sound intriguing and just the sort of thing I like to try – pickled sushi ginger, wasabi furikake  and yuzu.


Chocolate Fondant

When life gets your down, make this easy and irresistible chocolate fondant from Apply to Face Blog


Chilli Chocolate Chip Friands

I’ve made a lot of friands over the years and these gluten free chilli chocolate chip friands are possibly my favourite.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake 

Chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven. I think I’d like this vegan chocolate peanut butter cake from Caroline Makes for my birthday please.


Amarula Chocolate Caramel Cake

If you’re after a showstopper try The Baking Explorer’s Amarula, chocolate & caramel cake over at. It sounds and looks amazing.


Dairy-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

These pretty dairy-free chocolate cupcakes from Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen are perfect for those with a dairy intolerance.


Sweet Potato Fudge

For a slightly healthier but equally pretty treat, we have vegan sweet potato fudge with cacao nibs from A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table.


Cherry Chocolate Battenberg

Whilst I’m talking pretty, I think this might be the prettiest battenberg I’ve ever seen. It’s a gluten free cherry-chocolate battenberg cake with cherry marzipan from The Gluten Free Alchemist.


Anzac biscuits with milo and white chocolate.

Anzac Day has passed me by once again. Every year I mean to bake up some biscuits. Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe was not so remiss – ANZAC biscuits with milo and white chocolate.

    I love the colours of the Battenberg.

    No entry from me this month, I’m afraid – I haven’t baked for several weeks in an effort to lose some weight before our June holiday. I’ll be running out of blog posts soon!

    • Choclette

      1st June 2017 at 9:07 pm

      Oh I missed your entry this month Suelle. I hope the lack of baking helped with losing weight and that you enjoy your holiday. Where are you off to this year?

        I’m not sure whether I miss baking or eating the most! We’re off to the NE corner of France – Alsace – for a week of touring and eating.

          Well that sounds delightful Suelle. Worth saving yourself now so you don’t need to worry when you’re there.

    Great round up Choclette, I absolutely love Kate’s twist on the battenberg and Jo’s pavlova looks amazing, as does Jenny’s chocolate fondant………mmm yum! I have to say too that I’ve never made friands before and you’ve definitely persuaded me to pop them on my to bake list! 🙂

      Yes, it’s all very mouthwatering Angela. Friands are just the best thing to use up any leftover egg whites – they are super quick and easy to make and delicious too. I really want to make your magic cake now!

    Thanks for hosting such a delicious event, though I am not much of a chocolate fan – I do like to join in when I can. This month I have made brownies, I am sharing one of those recipes topped with tayberries.

      Lovely, thank you Shaheen. For someone who’s not very keen on chocolate, you do remarkably well 🙂 I’m so glad you join in when you can as your recipes are always so interesting.
