Salted Caramel Gelato #SundaySupper

This week the Sunday Supper team is sharing recipes for food that is served cold… as the majority of the group is based in the Northern hemisphere and it is a hot summer up there at the moment.  It has actually been quite cold down here lately.  I do not mind it one bit though, as…

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE BROWNIES

Chocolate. Cheesecake. Brownies.  Yes, you read that right.  They are 3 treats that I love on their own, so when I saw this recipe over at my friend Lizzy’s That Skinny Chick Can Bake! I knew these brownies would taste amazing.  How awesome is it to combine three scrumptious desserts into one??  What you get…

CHOCOLATE ACORNS

I have seen these on Pinterest and I just could not get them out of my mind.  I think they look really cute and they fitted in perfectly with my fairy theme for Victoria’s birthday party.  I have seen many “recipes” online and they all pretty much use ready made components that get assembled into…

CHOCOLATE AND ORANGE MINI CUPCAKES

If you follow this site more or less regularly, you already know that I love small desserts… I love the fact that they are (almost) guilt free and even more I love the fact that you can eat 2 or 3 different desserts for the calories of a single big one.  You see, I love…

CHESTNUT AND VANILLA CREAM – CRÈME DE MARRONS VANILLÉE

Chestnuts remind me of winter in Italy.  When it’s cold (and it does get quite cold in Milan), you can buy hot roasted chestnuts from street carts to warm you up.  The smell of roasted chestnuts always makes me think of Christmas and cozy winter evenings.  I soooo love them!  When they are in season,…

MINI CHEESECAKE CUPCAKES

I love cheesecake… who doesn’t?  I have made my share of no-bake cheesecakes, but to tell you the truth, I still have to make a baked cheesecake at home.  Don’t ask me why, but baking a cheesecake always intimidated me.  After making these little gems though, I think I am going to have to bake myself…

CHOCOLATE AND VANILLA SHARK MINI CUPCAKES

I made these mini cupcakes for Victoria’s 5th birthday party.  The theme was The Little Mermaid and the sea, so I decided to make the icing blue, like the sea.  I decorated them with some shark fins made out of chocolate.  As I had already made many sweets for the party, I kept the flavours of…
