RECIPES for winter

Find out what's been happening in our kitchen this week...

Dairy Free & Vegan Milk Chocolate Recipe

Dairy free milk chocolate

I've kept this recipe suitable for vegans, so it only has plant based ingredients. It'also gluten and dairy free. This milk chocolate bar recipe is very simple to make, but you do need some fairly specialist ingredients, that you might not always have in your kitchen cupboard, but I promise you'll love the milky texture of this chocolate!

Rum Truffle Recipe

rum truffles

This chocolate rum truffle recipe is so easy to make, that you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried it before. Anyone can make these and they are great to make as a little gift.  If you are not too sure about the alcohol in this recipe, you can replace the rum with rum flavour (or even different type of alcohol) or leave it out altogether!

Chocolate Mud cake

chocolate pudding

I was recently invited to demonstrate my cooking skills to new students at a local college. I thought this was going to be easy and started to gather my favourite simple recipes. That was until I read all my instructions and to my dismay found out, that the new college accomodation didn't include ovens in their communal kitchen design.
