Welcome back everyone,  we hope you have all had a deliciously wonderful week!  We had 45 amazing recipes linked up last week, and there really was something for everyone. If you’ve made any of the recipes from our Fabulous Foodie Friday party, please let us know – both Lauren and I love seeing pictures of your creations!


Last week Just A Mum’s Chocolate Cornflake Coconut Slice brought back so many childhood memories of making this slice with my Mum! This is such a classic recipe and certainly a favourite of nearly everyone I know.

Cornflake-Coconit-Slice-3-1024x647How fun are these Thermomix Chocolate Brownies!? Yep they have Smarties in them! Well I have to hand it to the lovely Robyn from Mrs D Plus 3… only a serious chocoholic could come up with a chocolate brownie recipe that has lots of extra chocolate add-ins. Mmmm chocolatey perfection.

Speaking of chocolate, I know I am not the only one who drooled a little when they saw this Nutella Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake from Seeking Victory. There is no doubt that I love, love, LOVE this recipe.


A few weeks ago I bought a mini kitchen torch, or what I like to refer to as my blowtorch. Anyway, it’s definitely time I made one of these delicious Gluten-Free Lemon Meringue Pies from Gluten Free Hart so I can start flame throwing!!

Mmm after all of that sugary goodness it’s definitely time for a savoury dish. I love that these Baked Lemon Chicken Drumsticks from Cooking For Busy Mums are made in the one dish and are so easy. These would make for a finger-lickin’ good meal!


Don’t forget to check out Lauren’s picks over at Create Bake Make.

And now it’s over to Lauren for this weeks recipe!


Chocolate Snickers Cake…

Hi everyone, this week I’m sharing my recipe for a deliciously wicked Chocolate Snickers Cake.  I’ll be honest, this cake isn’t for the calorie conscious but a slice of this cake still warm from the oven is oh so worth it!!

I love Snickers bars, the caramel, the peanuts and the nougat (not to mention the chocolate!) are too good to resist.  When combined with a rich chocolate cake, it’s a perfect match!
