Mocha meringue kisses with chocolate ganache filling

Difficulty: 2/5

I’ve noticed lately certain craze for meringue kisses. And honestly, it makes sense because they are tiny, cute, and sweet. So obviously I had to put my version up :). First, I thought to make the meringues of coffee and a ganache filling, but then I decided also to add cocoa powder to the meringue to make them mocha flavoured :O! They were so good! If you don’t want to make them this tiny (mine where 1.5cm diameter) you can make them bigger or even make baskets, whatever you like! Just be mindful that you will need to bake them longer. I use italian meringue because it’s the one that has the smallest bubbles inside (making the meringue kisses tighter) and also it’s firmer than the swiss to make a nice tip.  Continue reading Mocha meringue kisses with chocolate ganache filling

Chocolate Lava Cake

Difficulty 1/5

I know that this is something you would normally order in a restaurant, but honestly, it’s so so easy! It’s rich, moist and (why not) perfectly sinful. It’s incredibly worth it to have it in your go-to recipes. You do it the day before and keep it in the fridge (actually it NEEDS to be cold when it goes into the oven) and next day pop it in the oven, 10-15min and JOB DONE! An amazing dessert in just minutes. You don’t even have to go through the stress of unmoulding it when you actually can have it in a beautiful ramekin. Continue reading Chocolate Lava Cake

Peanut butter and chocolate mousse with peanut praline

Difficulty 2/5

This recipe is really good! I love the combination of chocolate and a really mild peanut butter. Also, there’s this chocolate sauce running through the center that is amazing and a crunchy peanut praline on the top that give a really nice finishing touch. Also, this is great because you can make it the day before your dinner and have it perfect for just sprinkling the praline on top. For the mousses we make one large batch of pastry cream. Using pastry cream as a starter of our mousse means that it’s going to be extra smooth and delicate. This you can even use on its own, with a bit of alcohol, fruits or tarts :).  Continue reading Peanut butter and chocolate mousse with peanut praline
