Chocolate Bark

Chocolate Bark

This recipe is as easy as it gets and therefore ideal (with assistance) to make with kids. A holiday activity if you will. You can add anything to it really, including your kids favourite treats. What i’m saying is, you can’t really go wrong. I opted for grown up toppings when I made this,because we were at my mum’s and she was giving my kids WHATEVER they wanted anyway.

Fudgy Avocado Brownies

Fudgy Avocado Brownies

These fudgy avocado brownies are one of the most requested recipes in my household. By my son mostly. My daughter will eat anything so I could put anything in front of her and she will be fine. They are fudgy like normal brownies, chocolatey rich and soooo good. I’ll tell you a secret. I was never into brownies. I hated them. Until i started making them at home and realised that really these things are pretty adaptable! I love trying different variations. Needless to say, I love them a lot more now. 🙂 Here is another avocado brownie recipe that I love. It is not healthy. It is from a different time. It is definitely a cheat day recipe! I apologise for the photos here, this recipe was supposed to go up a long time ago and we weren’t great at the whole picture taking thing.

Triple Chocolate Cookie in a cast iron pan

Triple Chocolate Cookie in a cast iron pan

I really did not know what to call this! Is it a deep pan cookie? A Cast iron pan cookie or is it cookie dough. I settled for this title because it covers all the bases. This triple chocolate cookie in a cast iron pan is so delicious and is a real crowd pleaser. It looks good too! When you get into the middle, you are basically in chocolate lava land. Drop some ice cream in and all is good. 🙂

This is something everyone should make. It is perfect for that day off from healthy eating that some of us eagerly anticipate all week. I would strongly suggest that you only make this in a cast iron pan although. You can try it in a cake tin and cook for slightly longer if you want to. It will yield similar results but it won’t be the same.

I will be putting up a recipe for a copycat Pizza Hut style cookie dough soon so keep your eyes peeled for that.
