Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day

Hi guys!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Any plans? Are you going to celebrate it with your love, friends or just by yourself? It doesn’t really matter, it’s always a good day to have a Cupcake πŸ˜‰

I wanted to keep it simple this year. Most of us have to work and don’t have time – or feel like making time – to make something complicated. My solution? Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes!

Marble Cake

Hi guys!

Once in a while I get this huge craving for cake. Just a simple cake. Do you have that too? Although I do like myself some storebought cake, you have to admit a homemade one is so much better. And so easy to make! To serve my fickle cravings, I made a Marble Cake.

Oreo Truffles

Hi guys!

The holidays are over and people are starting their resolutions. Most popular ones are still ‘losing weight’ and ‘starting to do some sports’. Not for me, I didn’t make any new year’s resolutions. I would end up dissapointing myself anyway. Negative thought, I know. But I’m trying to live life day by day. If I do something great, awesome! If not, that’s okay too. I’m just going to be happy in 2018.

We don’t want to eat too much or too much sugar in the beginning of the year because our stomachs are probably still trying to digest that turkey, duck or whatever festive dinner we’ve had at Christmas. So I wanted to share a fun, easy and not too heavy treat with you: Oreo Truffles! Ini mini bite-size treats to make you enjoy some sweets without going into overdrive. Sounds like a plan πŸ˜‰

Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Whittard

Hi guys!

It’s cold, it’s December and it’s almost Christmas. The perfect time for a Hot Chocolate themed recipe! What about these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with the Luxury Hot Chocolate from Whittard? I think it looks so cute!

These Hot Chocolate Cupcakes are the perfect solution for you if you can’t choose between an actual Hot Chocolate or a Chocolate Cupcake. You just eat a Hot Chocolate!

The Luxury Hot Chocolate from Whittard is quite strong when you dip your nose in the bags. But it softens in the batter which results in a lovely, balanced flavor.

Black Cat Halloween Cake

Hi guys!

I’ve seen amazing, really scary Halloween creations in the past few weeks. My Mummies weren’t really scary and today’s Halloween recipe isn’t either. But I just love cute Halloweens xD Remember the Frankenstein Cupcakes from last year? Not so scary. See, I have a theme when it comes to Halloween…

Some people want it to be scary, others want it to be cute and another group just doesn’t do Halloween. I for one enjoy it very much, as long as it’s not too scary. You can guess by now that I don’t do horror movies or Halloween ghostrides in theme parks, right?
Yes, I’m easily scared. Yes, I know some may say that’s silly. No, I do not care.

Today’s Halloween recipe may be one for all people. It’s a Black Cat Cake! It’s definitely not scary but it can cause a severe case of Death By Chocolate. Be careful!

Mummy Brownies for Halloween

Hi guys!

I haven’t been abducted by ghosts or black cats. I was busy trying some Halloween recipes for you! And I kinda took a week off. Sometimes you just need to go offline for a while. Get in touch with that inner you or catch up with some friends.
Or series in my case…

Series? Don’t you have to bake something? Yes. Yes, I do. But my dishwasher didn’t feel the same way. He broke down on Saturday. So “Sundays are for baking” suddenly changed to “Sundays are for cleaning”, dish washing and dish washing 😦 I think you can imagine how I felt after that so baking was the last thing on my mind that day because I really didn’t want to do some dish washing again… So instead, I binge-watched Pretty Little liars on Netflix which was the perfect alternative because I’m now almost at the end! Yay!

But I do have a Halloween recipe for you today! It’s cute, not aggressive and perfect to make with the kids: Mummy Brownies!

Chocolate Chip Apple Cake

Hi guys!

Who likes apples? I do! I don’t care how apples are used, I love every recipe with them.
But the way I like them most, is in a cake. Haha who knew :p

I love a simple Apple Cake but I wanted to add a little something. The Boyfriend wasn’t feeling so well last week so he had the final say since he wanted a cake so bad. He went for the Apple Cake and I added some chocolate chips πŸ™‚ Because chocolate always makes you feel better πŸ˜‰

Neuhaus celebrates me-time with the new BonBon collection

Hi guys!

Me-time. It’s something we all need, wether we admit it or not. For some, me-time means getting a hot bath whilst reading the newest novel from your favorite author. For others it means watching a show or series by yourself. For me, me-time is enjoying a fine piece of chocolate. I don’t even care where I am; in my car, waiting for the bus, you name it.

Neuhaus – my favorite chocolatier – honors this kind of me-time with its new collection: BonBon. They describe it as

The praline reinvented for on the go

The BonBons come in a handy box with 10 (fits your purse πŸ˜‰ ) or a slightly bigger box with 27 pieces of heaven.
