Super Choc Zucchini Brownies 

Today I made a batch of brownies. This was my first time using zucchini in them and I have to say I love them. They are super easy, delicious and you can freeze them.

Here’s the recipe if you are keen to give them a go.

You will need:

 

Process:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Line a brownie tin with baking paper.

Grate the zucchini into a large bowel. Roughly chop the dark chocolate and add to the bowl. Then add all of the other ingredients into the bowl and mix well.

Pour into the lined tin and pop into the over for 50 – 55 minutes or until skewer comes up clean.

Cool brownie in the tin and then cut into squares.

This recipe freezes well so separate into daily or weekly size portions and freeze. I use glad wrap and baking paper to wrap up 5 at a time to freeze.

 

Enjoy!






Rocky Road Chocolate Crackles 

Today I made my rocky road chocolate crackles. This recipe is not healthy in the slightest but I have held on to this recipe for about 10 years as it’s cheap and easy. It’s so handy if you need to bring something to an event or Birthday and it’s so easy the kids can make them with you. If you don’t like cherries leave them out or replace them with almonds.

What you’ll need: 

  • 4 cups rice bubbles
  • 50g pink & white mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Cocoa (I use Dutch)
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 100g glacé cherries (chopped roughly)
  • 250g block copha
  • 20-25 medium size cup cake wrappers (if you want to make smaller ones for kids you’ll need about 50 wrappers)

Process: 

Melt your block of copha in the microwave. Then add all ingredients in to a large mixing bowl and mix until everything is combined.

Next you need to scoop your mix into the cupcake wrappers and refrigerate until hard. An hour or two should do it.

These are a simple, tasty and cost effective treat. Just don’t be making these every week.

Happy crackling!
