7 Easy Summer Chocolate Recipes
Raspberry and white chocolate is a wonderful combination and always makes me think of summer. These raspberry & white chocolate ganache tarts from Only Crumbs Remain not only look beautiful and summery, but as Angela says “with a reduced fat ganache filling they’re kinder to the waistline” than you might expect. Do take a look at the video when you head over for the recipe, it’s fun.
Rocky road will always get my vote, so I was delighted to see this M&M rock road from Baking Queen 74. Lucy made this for a school bake sale, so although I’ve been casting envious eyes at it, it’s probably just as well it wasn’t destined for me.
And here’s another no-bake recipe of chocolate deliciousness. Perfect for a sweet treat in summer when, quite frankly, it’s sometimes just too hot to bake. Chocolate and salted caramel popcorn chunks from Recipes Made Easy.
If you want to get your chocolate fix another way, Everyday Healthy Recipes has come up with this healthier chocolate hazelnut spread. Chocolate and hazelnuts are a winning combination that we all know and love.
Sylvie from The Foodie Journey has beaten me to it. I’ve been meaning to make a magic chocolate cake for years, but it’s one of the many things I still haven’t got around to. It’s hard to believe you can get such a good layered effect from making just one cake batter.
My double delight bundt cake made with chocolate rum & raisin and coconut lime batters swirled together requires the oven to be on. But even the hottest summers have birthdays and other celebrations in need of cake, so I’m making no apology for my contribution to these 7 easy summer chocolate recipes.
Even though it’s not summer in Melbourne, this sloth slice (brilliant name) is super easy to make and won’t keep you chained to the kitchen for very long at all. This easy choc chip slice from Green Gourmet Giraffe is made from condensed milk, chocolate and coconut. It sounds scrumptious and just the sort of thing I’d be tempted to eat far too much of.
