The Christmas treats continue this week and today’s recipe is totally decadent and perfect for those times when only chocolate will do! This is not your standard everyday hot chocolate, (it is pretty much a dessert in its own right) but it is utterly luscious.

It’s almost December and after trying my best over the last two months to ignore the Christmas jingles on the radio and festive paraphernalia lurking at every turn in the supermarket I have decided to embrace the season. Yes folks, I am officially “feeling Christmassy”. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some divine Christmas treats, so let’s kick things off today with a bit of festive baking shall we?

We are doubling down on nutty goodness this week with a brand new recipe that I put together recently – peanut butter and walnut fudge bites, yum! This is the kind of quick and easy treat that I love snacking on in the afternoon when I need an energy boost and feel like a little something sweet but guilt-free. They are so good!

As promised last week I have a divine dessert for you today and it is inspired by one of our favourite puddings here in S.A. Milk tart is a South African classic – a pastry shell filled with custard, baked and then topped with cinnamon.

So when I discovered a healthier version that I could make easily at home I was over the moon.

A few weeks ago I was challenged by Nicolas over at Blogtastic Food to create a fabulous vegan dessert as part of a blogger recipe collaboration. The idea was inspired by this recipe for vegan lemon meringue pie which Nicolas put together recently, and he had the idea to challenge other food bloggers to get creative (vegan style!) and do the same. And that is how this vegan chocolate caramel tart came about.

Time for another healthy snack recipe. Ha ha, I wish! But you have to treat yourself every now and then, yes? I realised recently that I have never posted a doughnut recipe until now, so let me make up for that with these baked mini chocolate mousse doughnuts.

What do you get when you put two foodies in a kitchen with some almonds, sugar and a macaron recipe? In this case it was tons of laughter, some exploding butter and a batch of scrumptious almond and chocolate macarons!
