Rocky Road Cheesecake

Recently I have become obsessed with cheesecake. After making this intensely chocolaty one from Bakers Royale, my love for cheesecake has spiralled out of control. If you too have cheesecake on the brain, here's the perfect fix.

Malted Chocolate Cookies

I've tried this recipe before, using Ovaltine, and they were good, just not enough malt flavour. However I recently tried the same recipe again but used malted milk powder, and they were sooo malty and chocolaty! They are up there with the likes of Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies, and that's saying something.

Chocolate Cheesecake

I love old cookbooks - somehow they seem more reliable, and it's interesting to see how baking has evolved over the years. I also love cheesecake; so from a Good Housekeeping book bought in the 80's, here's a recipe for a delicious Chocolate Cheesecake - need I say more?

Cookie Dough Truffles

After receiving my copy of The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook, and trying five of the recipes within a three-day period, I can highly, highly recommend this book. It was the 50th addition to my shelf of baking books and this is the one I was most excited about. It's awesome. The cookie dough is insanely good - the best ever - and here it is dipped in chocolate. Now go buy the book, you won't regret it!

My sister and I used to eat bourbon biscuits all the time; I will forever associate them with the film 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' because that's when we would eat insane amounts of them. I recently bought Kate Shirazi's book 'Cookie Magic', which is filled with recipes for all the classics: custard creams, digestives, rich teas...and bourbons. They were so much more chocolaty than the ones I remember from my Harry-Potter-watching-days. Magic!
