Here’s a chocolate version of my Birthday Cupcakes recipe. A lovely chocolatey cupcake base crowned with creamy white chocolate frosting and sprinkled with chocolate shavings. If you like chocolate then these are a must!

Although no baking is required in this recipe, I had to share it as this cheesecake is simply irresistible. Fresh strawberries and creamy white chocolate combine with cream cheese and shortbread biscuits to form this dessert that is great all year round – especially on a summer’s day! I made it for a gift to bring to our neighbour’s barbecue and it went down a treat – in fact there wasn’t enough!

During this time of fervent revision when the library is open 24 hours and many students are in ‘constant study’ mode, I’ve found myself baking – somehow not a big surprise. I think traybakes are really homely and it doesn’t usually take much effort to create something delicious looking and delicious tasting (the proof for me being that I had all the ingredients without knowing I was gonna make it!). This is my take on Millionaires’ Shortbread, those lovely layers of shortbread, caramel and chocolate, transformed for all the chocolate lovers out there! I wouldn’t call myself a chocolate addict, but a part-time fanatic, yes, maybe. Click here for the recipe
I was in a bit of baking mood and thought I’d make some mini tarts. Since I was a child I’ve enjoyed Feast ice lollies with the crisp, cold piece of chocolate hidden in the middle and will never cease to love the mint version, so I decided to put it into tart form. The recipe is pretty simple (simple is always a good thing!) but the results are really tasty and would be fantastic on any occasion. Chilling the finished tarts is important as it not only enhances the minty freshness but it allows the filling to set (although if you can’t wait to try them – like me - I’m sure you won’t mind the filling spilling out and onto your hands!). The amout of pastry makes exactly 12 cases so you’ll have to re-roll the trimmings! Click here for the recipe
