I prefer to make a shortbread base rather than use digestive biscuits - it tastes a little richer. But the choice is yours. Either way, this is a great dessert for a crowd.
Digestives for the base, then cream, cocoa powder, chocolate, cream cheese and baileys for the top.
Beer Dogs in a slow cooker.
Two delectable cocktails, which are perfect for Valentine's day. His is made by combining vanilla vodka with hazelnut liqueur, whilst hers is made by shaking together raspberry vodka, creme de cacao and single cream.
This is a lovely cream cheese lemon icing that is glorious on carrot cakes or cupcakes and even banana cake.
You can use the first part of this recipe as the caramel base for creme caramel, or for glazing profiteroles or apples. If you prefer a creamier caramel sauce for pouring over ice cream or sticky toffee pudding, continue on with the second part of the recipe.
Add half a jar of cranberry sauce to normal stuffing for a lovely fruity taste. Perfect Christmas treat!
A kind of Jaffa cake, but with a Valentine's day theme and using red (raspberry flavour in my case) jelly, rather than Jaffa orange. I made my jelly up a day in advance, so it had lots of time to set. I used a ready made chocolate sponge cake mix for my cakes, but you could just as easily make your own sponge cake mix for the bases.
I adapted this recipe from a traditional vanilla one in an old Harrod's recipe book. I made it for party and it went down a storm!!
A tasty tea-time treat.
Key Lime Pie made healthier but just as delicious
This is a sponge cupcake with pink icing on top. It is wonderful and yummy, and this makes 18 cupcakes!
Warm golden brown toast with a twist for a sweet tooth or as a breakfast treat for someone on their birthday. Serve with hot chocolate!
These sticks are best served with coffee as an ‘appetiser’ for your breakfast – why shouldn’t you have an appetiser for breakfast? I enjoy dipping my Cinnamon Bread Sticks into black coffee.
A lovely treat at the end of a nice meal or after Christmas dinner! Freshly brewed coffee gets a little added zip from Irish whisky and Baileys.
I am allergic to dairy but LOVE panna cotta. The answer? A gorgeous panna cotta made with coconut cream. This is such an easy pud to make, and really pretty served in individual glasses. The texture is fabulously light and creamy.
This recipe is originally my mother's, however I've taken my own twist with it, increasing the sugar and adding vanilla - removing the butter to create a perfect tablet every time that's easy for anyone to create. Family and friends and strangers from around the world have tried it themselves and sent me feedback stating that it's turned out perfect and tastes delicious. It melts in your mouth and is bursting with sweetness; the slight hint of vanilla is an added bonus that leaves for a great aftertaste.
This chocolate tart tastes lovely! Grated beetroot is added to a chocolate custard and baked in a shortcrust pastry case.
This is a recipe that my mum and granny have made for years.there are lots of variations that I have tried including Chocolate chip,cinnamon etc
Fiery ginger combines with icy vodka, and is then topped with champagne for good measure. Use good quality champagne for best results.
