Sophisticated Sunday Snack... Monochrome Krispie Cakes!

As you may have seen here, I love Rice Krispie cakes- especially when made with white chocolate!! What could be better?? Making them with BOTH white and milk chocolate! 

Introducing the stylish Monochrome Krispie Cake! 

I expected these to take a long time to make, but they are in fact relatively fast and easy!
The colour contrast packs a powerful punch here, and they were the perfect treat to whip up for a loyal follower's birthday! ;) Plus, monochrome is so in vogue right now, you just can't help but love these!


  1. Line cupcake tins with cupcake liners.
  2. Melt bar milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water on the stove (don't boil water as it will burn the chocolate and spit out steam/water at you!) Stir continuously.
  3. When fully melted mix in Rice Krispies.
  4. Pour this mixture into the cases. 
  5. Allow to set for a few moments (you don't want to melt this layer with the next batch!)
  6. Wash bowl and dry thoroughly. 
  7. Repeat steps 2 & 3 using a bar of white chocolate (lesser quantity will suffice).
  8. Pour mixture into cases holding chocolate mixture, allowing the milk chocolate to peak through, or place white chocolate mixture to one side!

Enjoy- I know for a fact you will!

Milis in Mallorca

A trip to Mallorca for a much-needed dose of sunshine, sea, sand and relaxation proved surprisingly fruitful for sweet treats!! Thankfully the heat which reached up to 29degrees Celcius had us working off the excess calories from the treats featured below! :)

Indulgent Breakfasts....

Chocolate Pancakes from Restaurant Dutchie, Santa Ponsa.

Store-bought brioche, enhanced with scrumptious Nutella!

Why do we not have these in Ireland?! 
This was my second time tasting this ice-cream and it exceeded my expectations from memory!! 

 Creamy white chocolate, tangy strawberry ice-cream... The stuff of dreams!!!

Another two products which should be brought West! Haribo sweets are always top of my list when it comes to snacks, but these fruit-themed varieties were delicious! 
Soft and foamy so they didn't hurt your teeth, or give you a belly-ache; yet so intensely flavoursome that you couldn't help but eat almost the entire bag in one sitting! 
I really do hope they export them here, I feel life will never be the same again after tasting these fruity sensations!!

And finally....
