No-Bake Fruit & Nut Nutella Bars

Here’s another addition to the no-bake list, if you recall my other no-bake dessert. In fact, I should also start making another list for the uses of Nutella in baking. There are just too many.

Everybody loves Nutella. You can’t go wrong with that.

Today, I added Nutella into one of my favourite snacks: granola bars. And it’s made it my new favourite snack.

I know I promised some time back to post my homemade granola recipe, but that’ll still have to wait. (Good things are worth the wait.) For now, let’s be content with Nutella. We can always count on Nutella like a best friend — like one of life’s simple joys.

Banana Rocher Frozen Pops

DIY Banana Ferrero Rocher.

Here’s one that’s sure to be a cheat’s favourite.

Everyone loves a chocolate fix, but sometimes the thought of having to go lengths to satisfy that craving can seem a little daunting. Today’s feature offers the perfect solution.

Bite-sized and deliciously decadent, this deceptively impressive-looking sweet treat is great for last-minute summer entertaining. (The first look reminds you of Ferrero Rocher, no?)

Also, as these pops are served frozen, they can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for a fuss-free after-meal party dessert.

It’s so easy to make, you wouldn’t believe it.

Oreo and Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Brownie Cups

Allow me to introduce you to a little heaven on earth.

Yes, that statement may well be bordering on the lines of blasphemy, but I’ll leave you to decide if you’d like to hop on over to the Dark Side (dark chocolate, geddit geddit?) once you’ve had a taste of these brownie cups. They’re not just ordinary, boring brownies. And neither are they simply Oreo-flavoured or peanut butter brownies.

Inside these little cups of magic are two whole Oreo cookies, and all-natural peanut butter (which is good for you, if eaten in controlled portions, though I can’t say for sure with this recipe…). If that isn’t a mouthful, I don’t know what is!

Indeed, these cups are what I’d like to call “calorie bombs” — be sure to watch how many you gobble down!

Inspiration for these brownie cups came from a Food Snots entry I chanced upon. The recipe there calls for brownie mix but as I’d have you know, I don’t trust pre-mix ha ha. So, I combined a dark chocolate brownie recipe from Joy the Baker with the recipe I found on Food Snots and, voila! Nothing short of a genius idea 🙂
