 American Rocky Road Ice Cream

A big hello all the way from Texas! *waves*  We are currently in the middle of our Texas road trip, making our way from Austin to Houston. It has been such a fascinating experience exploring three amazing cities! And the barbecue is seriously out-of-this-world. Make sure you follow along on Instagram to keep up with my mouth-watering food adventures! I'm sharing an easy recipe with you today for American Rocky Road Ice Cream. A little different to rocky road in Australia, this chocolate dessert is loaded with white chocolate coated almonds, mini marshmallows and a scattering of dark chocolate pieces. Excuse me, while I grab a doughnut and get ready to tell you more.

Smores Chocolate Cupcakes

Craving S'mores? These Chocolate Cupcakes are sure to satisfy. Beginning with a soft chocolate cake, you'll find a surprise marshmallow filling inside, all topped with a creamy chocolate buttercream frosting and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs. I have a slight obsession with all things s'mores. Toasted marshmallows are amazing, yes? Friends, this is my last post before I jet set off to America! I am excited! You should be excited too because I am going to come back filled to the brim with new recipe ideas.

Twix Cookie Cups

The top post for Sweet Menu in 2014 by a long long way was my Homemade Twix Bars. Since discovering I am not the only one who loves the combination of shortbread, caramel and chocolate, I've gone one step further and created these delightful Twix Cookie Cups. Using a soft buttery cookie dough, these cookie cups are filled with gooey caramel and then topped with a smooth coating of milk chocolate. Perfect for Twix lovers everywhere.

Nutella Oreo Cheesecake


Happy New Year friends! Welcome to 2015. I think I missed the memo about food bloggers doing lighter desserts in January to help everyone with their eating healthy resolutions. Sorry about that. Instead, I'm kicking off 2015 with a chocolate covered bang. May I introduce you to the most delicious and decadent chocolate hazelnut Nutella Oreo Cheesecake. Calorie laden, yes, but it is worth every bite. This no bake cheesecake has a soft and fluffy filling, a thick chocolately Oreo crust and is topped with swirls of chocolate whipped cream and a sprinkle of toasted hazelnuts.

 Peanut Butter Pretzel Candy Bark


Leftover Christmas candy from all your crazy celebrations? There is no better time to make a batch of candy bark. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. Mine was filled with the most wonderful company and the most delightful food. We ate, we danced, we sang. It's hard to believe its all over for another year. Today, I have whipped up a special sweet and salty treat for you. Swirls of peanut butter layered on rich dark chocolate, topped with crunchy salty pretzels and a sweet scattering of chocolate M&M's.
