Peppermint Crisp Chocolate Log

This little post has apparently had 190 views in the past week! So I thought I’d share it again. Not my recipe, but very tasty indeed. Gosh, 4 years flew by. I think it’s time to make it again. Leave your thought/comments if you made it and what you think.

I have to be honest and admit I’ve only made this once, but it has got to be just about the easiest non-baked treat I’ve come across. A friend recently shared the original link on Facebook (you can follow Chocolate Goose on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/chocolategoose?ref=hl) and it looked so delicious I had to give it a go. It didn’t last very long either so it will definitely be made again, and again, and again…you get the picture ;).

If you can’t find Peppermint Crisp chocolate bars (they hail from South Africa and we are lucky to be able to get them from a few SA shops in Auckland), then perhaps peppermint Aero or any delicious minty chocolate might do the trick.

Chocolate Easter Tart and New Beginnings

With Easter just around the corner I thought I'd better get myself into gear and share a few ideas with you. For many Easter is a long weekend filled with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, but it represents so much more to so many and I find myself trying to focus on the true meaning of… Continue reading Chocolate Easter Tart and New Beginnings

Best Chocolate Brownie – ever!

This has got to be one of my favourite treats to bake and of course, to eat. Growing up, I was never fond of Brownies, in fact, I tried to avoid them at all cost , but the older I got and as my penchant for chocolate increased - especially dark chocolate - I turned… Continue reading Best Chocolate Brownie – ever!

Chocolate Oaty Easter Nests

With Easter just around the corner I decided to pull out a few old family favourite recipes from my childhood. My sister used to make these, or something very similar, just minus the Easter eggs, and we'd impatiently wait for the freezer to set them sufficiently before we attacked them with relish. She would heap… Continue reading Chocolate Oaty Easter Nests
