Here are a few of our favourite easy home bakes that are perfect as an afternoon treat! 

Gourmet Triple Chocolate Brownie

Using a higher quality chocolate chip, such as Calleabaut’s range, you can level up your traditional brownies and make them even more delectable! We recommend using a mix of dark, white, and milk chocolate, as well adding some ground almonds for that rich, intense chocolatey taste.

  • 275g Light Brown Caster Sugar

Short Recipe:

  • Melt the butter and dark chocolate together, then cool
  • Prepare a 30cmx20cm brownie tin and line the bottom with greaseproof paper
  • Sieve the cocoa powder, then add the almonds
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together to a light and foamy consistency
  • Fold into the cooled chocolate mixture
  • Fold in the white and milk chocolate buttons
  • Pour into the prepared tin and bake @ 160°C for 25 minutes
  • Cool in the tin, cut & serve

Loaded Chocolate Cookies

Adults and children alike; we all love cookies! They make the ideal treat; an after-school snack, with an afternoon tea, or even serve as a tasty, indulgent dessert. These chocolate loaded cookies are great for everyone – serve them warm with ice-cream, or why not pack them into lunch boxes?
