Co-op Chocolate and Chestnut Brownies

I’ve used the Co-op Irresistible 70% Dark Chocolate for this recipe, which has both floral and spicy notes. Plus they’re individually wrapped in beautiful gold paper, so you can enjoy them as an occasional, but decadent, treat. The Irresistible Milk Chocolate lived up to its name too. Made with carefully selected Peruvian cocoa, it has a smooth and creamy taste which makes it perfect to scatter into a brownie mix as a sweet contrast against the intense dark chocolate. 


easy pumpkin cinnamon buns.


An easy cinnamon bun recipe which is perfect for the pumpkin season. One of my favourite things about Autumn is the excuse for all things hygge. Pronounced hoo-gah, hygge is the concept of cosiness, hailing from Denmark and Norway. Friends, family, fun and loved ones around doing things that you love. Although it's an all year round thing, it perfectly ties in with the Autumn and Winter want to curl up with a blanket with a cuppa and candles.

I'm actually off to Copenhagen for my 30th next week. But for now, I thought I'd satisfy my appetite for all things hygge and Scandi with this Autumn inspired pumpkin cinnamon bun recipe.



slow cooker pumpkin sponge cake with pumpkin cream.


An inviting Autumnal dessert for the darker days; this slow cooked pumpkin sponge really brings the best of the season together. Autumn is my favourite, so when I was invited to get creative for the Crock-Pot Crocktober Halloween Challenge, I couldn't wait to conjure up a cosy recipe. Made in the versatile and convenient Crock-Pot, the slow cooking of this pumpkin sponge really infuses the cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger spices into this dessert. leaving a moist and buttery texture.

This appliance really is deserving of its place on the kitchen counter. From dinner to dessert, the Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker can get to work steaming, roasting and sautéing whilst you get on with other everyday tasks. Although slow cooking lends itself to the colder months, you really get make anything all year round. Scroll down to see how this creation really is pretty much as easy as simply pressing a button.
