With July being a particularly hot month, I wasn’t expecting much in the way of chocolate baking, but it turns out we can’t be prised away from our ovens that easily.

We’re talking brownies and cookies here – it’s the sort of talk I like. I do enjoy doing these We Should Cocoa round-ups, but my goodness they make me hungry.
