Happy Saturday all! Today’s recipe is Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins – and let the festive season begins! 😀
As you can see these Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins are loaded with chocolate, like lots of it so that’s enough of a good reason for me to make them this festive season. They’re one of the simplest muffins I’ve ever made. It only takes 15 minutes for them to cook. I think it actually takes more time to make them look like Christmas trees. I used some desiccated coconut hoping to make them look like snowy Christmas trees. 🙂
It’s a great way t get your kids involved and leave them to decorate the muffins. They probably won’t look like Christmas trees at the end but that’s ok. 😀 This reminds me, I should make some Christmas cookies as my kids love decorating them.
No matter how healthy we’re trying to be, it’s this time of the year again and there’s always something sweet and naughty to try so that’s a tricky task. Seriously, what’s Christmas without some indulgent food (ok, probably too much of it). But hey, there’s January, it’s usually when people make their New Year’s resolutions so it’s a good time to get back in shape. 🙂 Till then, let’s just try to find a healthy balance.
Here’s how to make the Mocha Christmas Tree Muffins
I hope you guys like this recipe as much as we did. Stay tuned for more quick, easy and tasty recipes coming in the next few days. Meanwhile, enjoy your weekend and treat yourself with some delicious food. xx
Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Pumpkin & Chocolate Biscuit Cake – so creamy, chocolatey and simply irresistible!
I’m telling you guys, this cake is just perfection – biscuit layers, with mascarpone and cream, pumpkin & of course, lots of chocolate. Oh, and on top – my fav caramelized pecans. We really enjoyed this cake and I honestly had a bit too many pieces, but it really was amazing.
It’s also so simple to make, I actually used digestive biscuits for the layers, soaked in some strong espresso & brandy mix. So no flour, no baking, no fuss really. The other main ingredients are the mascarpone & cream mixture, pumpkin and some chocolate spread (like a jar of it 😀 ). This beautiful cake was topped up with some caramelized pecans for a crunchy finish.
I have originally seen the recipe in a website and I thought this all sounded pretty delicious so I couldn’t wait to try it. I’ve changed quite a few thing but I got the main idea from there.

What I really love about this cake is that the more it stays in the fridge, the tastier it gets. The biscuits really soften and soak the espresso & brandy mixture. It tastes so much better in a few days time (not that anyone could wait that long :-D).
I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we did. Stay tuned for more yummy recipes coming very soon. I’m really into party/festive recipes at the moment ( 7 weeks till Christmas yay!) so make sure to check my blog. I promise they’ll be very tasty and simple to make and your friends and family will simply love them. 🙂 If you don’t want to miss a post, simply hit the subscribe button. 🙂 I hope you all have a lovely and productive week. xx
Happy Sunday folks! Today’s recipe is Raspberry Chocolate pie – moist and chocolatey, this pie is a perfect treat for you Sunday!
I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! I myself had a super fun Saturday at a local farm picking some veg. The kids absolutely loved the idea of picking their own veg and then getting to help me cook them later. Seriously, freshly picked beetroot makes amazing veg chips. I should probably share the recipe with you (it’s no rocket science really, but there are a few tips and tricks) 🙂 Plus, I make them in the oven so they’re much healthier, tastier and cheaper too than the shop bought chips. 🙂 Oh, and the kids love them!
I really don’t know how come we haven’t done this earlier. The farm itself was beautiful with great restaurant where they served really delicious food. My favourite place though was the farm shop. Now, I’ve been to quite a few of those and to be honest wasn’t that much impressed for various reasons. But this particular shop, oh I was in heaven! 🙂 First of all, it was very spacious, with lots of different counters filled with gourmet items. I honestly can’t stop thinking about it and about the items I’m getting next time! 🙂
Let’s go back to the recipe now…
The Raspberry Chocolate Pie is super moist and chocolatey, you couldn’t resist. The raspberries add this amazing berry hint that is just divine with chocolate. The recipe is super simple, all you need is some flour, chocolate, eggs, sugar and raspberries. I’m not a very good baker myself so I always look for the easiest baking recipes and this one is definitely such. All you have to do is mix everything together and bake. 🙂
Happy Tuesday all! Today’s recipe is No Bake Coconut Milk Chocolate Sweets – indulgent and easy to make treat especially for those of you who love coconut! There’s lots of it! It’s actually the main ingredient. 🙂
I didn’t add any sugar but there’s a bit of milk chocolate in there, not that much really. Also I used coconut oil (quite a lot of it) for even more intense coconut flavour. And for helping these sweets to stick together. The almonds I put are more like a decoration but they gave a nice crunch to the sweets. Really basic recipe but sooo delicious. It reminded me of my favourite chocolates (Lindt, the coconut bonbons), mine tasted as good as them, I promise!

I can’t believe Easter is over and there’s another week off coming that I need to start planning and organising about. I’m talking about the Summer half-term. I do hope the weather will be much better than it is now so we could spend more time outside. And April is almost gone! Seriously? The time does fly. Sometimes I just wish to stop that ( especially the fact that the kids are growing so fast, too fast I’d say). But this is what life is bout, right! OK, I think I need to move back to the recipe now.
This is one of the laziest and tastiest sweets I’ve made. I’m not really into baking and making sweets (on the other side I bake every week), but as we all have sweet tooth I have to make sweet stuff too. Baking is quite precise, isn’t it. Well, I’m the opposite. That’s why baking and me don’t get along (sometimes). 🙂
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Stay tuned for more simple and delicious recipes!
