Some people are obsessed with cheese & other savoury morsels. Though I do enjoy the occasional crisp, I’m a sweet tooth all the way. I love desserts - especially donuts! Oh and really light sponge cake with cream. And chocolate croissants and warm apple pie a la mode… oh man. Anyway, what were we talking about?! Oh that’s right, this amazing free print from A Fabulous Fete by artist Kori Clark. ‘The Sugar Shortlist’ is the perfect piece of art for the kitchen (or you could put it next to your bedside table for a sweet night’s sleep!).
Some people say it’s too cold for ice blocks right now in Australia, but I disagree! Anytime is a good time for ice blocks. Or ice pops if you are from the North! These ice blocks are so easy to make and bonus - healthy! That’s right, there’s no extra sugar, there’s no cream, additives, etc. Henry Happened has two flavours here - Cucumber Basil and Watermelon Strawberry - both have high water content (which is good for you in Summer!). This has given me inspiration to make a Strawberry, Lemon & Mint version! Yum!
Although healthy cookie dough dip seems like an oxymoron, this cookie dough dip has chickpeas as part of it’s base! Strange but I’ve been guaranteed you can’t taste them (tell people after they’ve eaten it and blow their mind).
I love any lemon based dessert, especially lemon bars! They are so easy to make and doesn’t require a ton of ingredients to make - in fact you’ve probably already got most of them in your kitchen!
These cupcakes might take a bit more effort than your usual stir and pour, but oh my gosh they look so worth it! These cupcakes have a graham cracker base, sprinkled with chocolate…and a graham cracker top sprinkled with chocolate! Oh yeah, and of course you can’t forget that gooey marshmallow top. I wish I hadn’t seen this at 8PM because it’s all I want right now…
Is it strange that I don’t like eating cold bananas, but hot bananas I find delicious!? I don’t care, I can’t get enough. I could eat a million banana fritters if you gave me the chance. So I think I would love these banana springrolls - how amazing do they look!? Time to break out the wok!
This kind of cake is what I imagine Marie Antoinette would dine on at one of her fancy parties! It looks so dreamy - light, creamy, soft. Delicious! This is one of those show stopper cakes that would be amazing for a birthday party. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to cook all the crepes and give them time to cool - hot crepes and cream will equal a big melty mess!
What can I say,… I love cinnamon rolls! So this recipe is right up my alley - can’t you just smell the cinnamon apple goodness through the screen!? If you’re lucky enough to have a bread maker, I suggest you try making your dough that way, it will cut out a lot of time. I plan on making these this weekend, yum!
Dipping anything in chocolate improves almost everything, I’m sure most of you can agree. These adorable pops are almost too cute to eat, but I’m sure I could bring myself to eat one…or two. HH has lots of fun pretzel pop projects, so make sure to click through for more!
How cool are these - mini pinata cupcakes! These don’t actually look too hard to make, though I guess it might take a few tries to get the domes looking nice. You could fill the top with lots of different candies, if you’re making these for Christmas you could fill them with red, green and white M&Ms or if you’re making them for New Year’s Eve you could fill them with gold gum balls and edible gold stars!
Want something sweet, rich and completely decadent to serve up for sweets at your next party? Well look no further than this amazing dessert from With Lovely - Strawberry Fool. A layered dream of cream, strawberries, nutella and berry compote, make sure you make an extra one to hide in the fridge for the next day!
Microwave Brownie Lava Cakes | The Yummy Life
A while ago an email spread like wildfire through my office- Microwave Chocolate Cake In A Mug. People were excited. Cake! Quick cake! Yeah… Imagine what a cake made in a mug would look like…not pleasant. Also the ingredients were a little skew-iff so if you followed it directly and added one whole egg for one mug cake it turned into a weird gluey mess. Many were dissapointed. But I’m willing to try again with this recipe - it says it yielded 100% consistent results. And for such a delicious, gooey (on purpose!) chocolately dessert, I’m willing to try. If you decide to try too, let me know what your results are!
White Chocolate Heart Cups with Strawberry Ice Cream | Go Make Me
So these are meant to be for Valentine’s Day, but seriously, you shouldn’t ever have to wait a whole year to eat something this delicious! I think the thing that really caught my eye though is that little puff of fairy floss on top! Pretty and delicious, awesome!
Mini Strawberry, Lemon and Shortbread Trifle | Madigan Made
One thing I love about buffets is the mini desserts. It means that instead of wasting your dessert on onething that might not taste good (or starts to taste bad after a while) you get to have multiple desserts with a little taste of everything! Who doesn’t love that?! These mini trifles would be perfect for your own buffet style dinner party (they’re so easy to make that you could make more than one dessert no stress!)
S’mores Pie | The Pastry Affair
My new love is the Pastry Affair, and I honestly can’t work out what the heck I share with you from it because I want to share it all! I finally settled on this S’mores Pie because it made me yell out ‘OH MY GOSH!’ when I saw it! Yum. I would have to take this to a party or someone else’s house though because I’m pretty sure I would eat it all and get really sick… The recipe is quite similar to making a lemon meringue pie - make the crust, fill and then the best part - lay the marshmallows on top and melt them under the broiler. OK, enough talking, time to get backing!
