Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars! + Having Fun with Food

Hi my Lovelies! How are you this weekend? I dreamed up these Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Bars when I was walking around in my local supermarket store and walked by a bag of pretzels. I picked up the bag and couldn’t shake of the image of these pretzels swimming in dark chocolate heaven. Yum. Did you ever play with food? Sometimes I like to take a break and have a random wander around the supermarket. Have any of you ever done that? Especially, the snack section. It takes me back to my childhood memories, consolidated in aluminum wrapped wagon wheels marshmallows in the middle of 2 chocolate biscuits, swimming goldfish crackers, oreos, shortbread animal biscuits with pink lime green frosting, Pocky sticks… I remember I used to drink hot chocolate using a chocolate hazelnut cylinder shaped wafer as a straw and being (sort of) disappointed when the wafer would dissolve into the hot chocolate. Then, shortly after trying again slurping the hot cocoa with wafer straw. I would repeat this gleeful scenario until my mom …

Mini Chocolate Bundt Cakes made with Akesson’s Chocolate

Chocolate Divine In the post where I wrote how Traveling teaches us to be present, I mentioned about going to London’s Portobello Market. There was something of too much of a coincidence about that trip, that a big part of my soul is telling me that it was divinely planned. I met the amazingly talented Charlotte Reed, whose work, illustrations, and positive sayings I absolutely love and then I stumbled upon this chocolate store that just pulled me in. But not just any chocolate store though. It’s Akesson’s Chocolate.  Today I’m going to share a very special Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe using Akesson’s Chocolate. Ya’ll know how much I love chocolate. I like it dark, intense; and real. Next to coffee, chocolate is my must have every day treat. I went into the store and looked around. I have never been here, but something about the place and the air about it seemed familiar to my soul. Then I saw it. In the drawers of the cabinet that held a selection of Akesson’s Chocolate variety …

Simple Swedish Chocolate Cake Kladdkaka

Hi everyone! i hope you guys are having a relaxing weekend. Today I have this simple most delicious Swedish Chocolate Cake for you. There’s a story behind this Chocolate Mud Cake. I must say it was the highlight of my otherwise quite stressful study period. So, I was taking a study break and was walking to one of my favorite cafes in Edinburgh called Peter’s Yard. and right sitting on top of their counter was this Chocolate Mud Cake dusted with a light coating of icing sugar. Without even thinking anymore, I immediately bought a slice and the moment i bit into it ….. *(get ready for theatrical descriptions of chocolate cake)* I was greeted with taste sensation of layer and layers of smooth indulgence. First there was the bitter-sweet chocolate. I literally mean bitter then sweet, because it was the bitter dark intense chocolate that hit first, and it finished with light sweetness enveloped with smooth vanilla tones. I bit into it again and this time i could taste some espresso flavour in the …
