We Should Cocoa | 1st July 2018 | By

Summer may be here at last and it’s definitely hot. Everything’s gasping for water and I’ve been praying for rain. The newly discovered roses in our garden aren’t looking quite as fresh and blooming beautiful as they were in May. But this heatwave hasn’t stopped our love of chocolate or some of us from baking. Read on to find 8 irresistible chocolate recipes featuring biscuits, cake, desserts, breakfast and ice-cream.

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 July’s link-up. If you haven’t joined in before or need a reminder, you can find the guidelines on the We Should Cocoa page.

8 Irresistible Chocolate Recipes

Chocolate Puddles

I published a post recently that is great for using up egg whites. Kate at The Gluten Free Alchemist has now given us another fabulous recipe for just such a situation. It doesn’t even matter if you’ve got a bit of yolk mixed up in them. Her chocolate-espresso puddle cookies have a surprise ingredient that makes me want to get baking despite the current heatwave. They’re dairy and gluten-free too.

 

Chocolate Macaroon Recipe with Honeyed Chocolate Ganache

This chocolate macaroon recipe with honeyed chocolate ganache is the very one I was talking about for using up egg whites. These macaroons are a little different to your average though. They’re made with chufa flour rather than ground almonds. They’re delicious.

 

vegan snickers smoothie bowl

I do like a good smoothie bowl for special occasions. It somehow seems more civilised to spoon one’s breakfast from a bowl, rather than drink it from a glass. Nico’s vegan “snickers’ smoothie bowl has to be the most luscious one I’ve seen. I just want to dive straight in. Find it at Yumsome.

 

Lotus Biscoff Chocolate Mousse

Think biscoff spread loaded with double cream and chocolate. Doesn’t it sound divine? Head over to Caroline Makes for her Lotus biscoff chocolate mousse recipe.

 

Ricotta Chocolate Cake

Alida over at My Little Italian Kitchen makes the most delectable Italian confectionery. This ricotta chocolate cake with its layers of white and dark reminds me a bit of my black bottomed cupcakes only much more elegant.

 

Salted Caramel, Chocolate and Hazelnut Shortbread Squares

It’s been a while since we had any bakes from Suelle over at Mainly Baking. I’m absolutely delighted to welcome her back. She knows just how to tickle my tastebuds and now I’m desperate to try these salted caramel, chocolate and hazelnut shortbread squares.

 

Blueberry & White Chocolate Ice Cream Popsicles

Whilst I can’t see myself ever going off chocolate bakes, I’m finding what I most want in this heat is ice cream. Elizabeth’s pretty blueberry & white chocolate ice cream popsicles over at Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary sound like they’d hit the spot exactly.

 

Quinoa & Sweet Potato Chocolate Dessert

If you like your chocolate desserts, but are worried about the fat content, how about trying this healthy chocolate dessert with quinoa & sweet potato? I’m intrigued by the ingredients, they’re right up my street. Thanks to Monika at Everyday Healthy Recipes for this fantabulous idea.

      They do look gorgeous Angie. I’m always very pleased though, that they are virtual and not sitting in my kitchen.

    Lovely round up! I especially like the sound of Monika’s healthy dessert. I’m just about to link up my latest recipe. I rarely make anything with chocolate so it’s good to be able to take part this month!
