    Chocolate Milk Jelly

    Guess what happens when you add Gelatine Powder to Hot Chocolate and make it into Jelly. I have tried it today and I was amazed.

    Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

    Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding is a very popular dessert in Australia. This is an old classic recipe I wrote down in my recipe book decades ago. It requires a scary amount of Sugar.

    Soft & Moist Chocolate Cake

    Auntie Lorna’s Boiled Chocolate Cake is delicious, but it cracks badly every time I bake it. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. Then I started to modify the recipe. I first reduced Flour. Then replaced Butter with Oil. The cake turned very soft and moist, but too fragile. So I reduced Oil. The …

    Cocoa Oats & Almond Cookies

I tired it, but I buttered the bread quite generously. The combination of Crunchy Chocolate, Butter and Soft White Bread was, as you can guess, heavenly. I …

    Super Easy Coffee Chocolate Fudge

    Today I wanted to make a bitter version of my ‘Super Easy Chocolate Fudge’. I used Cadbury’s Baking Dark Chocolate (70% Cocoa) and added Instant Coffee Granules. I added 1 tablespoonful (15ml) Coffee Granules. The Fudge was fairly bitter, though I could have added a little more as I love very strong coffee. Ingredients 180g …

    No-Bake Chocolate Caramel Slice

    A few days ago, I wanted to make Chocolate Caramel Slice. To make Chocolate Caramel Slice, you need to bake the base pastry, then pour the Caramel Filling over the base, and bake it again. It’s summer now and I didn’t want to use oven when it is hot. So, I decided to use biscuit …

    Chocolate Salami (No Egg)

    Here is an old recipe from my recipe notebook. This Chocolate Salami is made with No-Egg and No-Cream. I found the original recipe in a book many years ago, but it didn’t work well. I reduced the amount of Butter. As it was very bitter, I reduced the amount of Cocoa Powder and started adding …
