Hot chocolate

Hot chocolate

Homemade hot chocolate is so easy to make and a healthier alternative to shop-bought powders or mixes. If you prepare your own, you can control what goes into each mug of deliciousness and choose better quality chocolate that is lower in sugar and other additives. Remember, dark chocolate gives a better, richer flavour than milk chocolate. If preferred, you can stir in a little honey for a sweeter taste.

Sjokolademousse met jogurt

Sjokolademousse met jogurt

Dié maklike Sjokolademousse word met jogurt in plaas van room gemaak, wat steeds ’n heerlike romerige tekstuur verleen, maar minder ryk is.

The combination of the vanilla cake, creamy ice cream, toasted macadamia nuts, berries and chocolate is popular with everyone.

Pink Lady® Apple tart

Pink Lady® Apple tart

How can I best describe this apple tart? Caramelised apple wedges with honey, a touch of lemon, cranberries and a delicate combination of spices. But that’s not it yet – it all sits on an almond and butter layer, wrapped in a light and crisp butter pastry. Absolutely delicious. This Pink Lady® apple tart is one of the best I have ever made (and eaten). Yes, it’s a bit of extra work, but oh, so worth it.
