Confession time… I’m a sugar addict. It will be of no surprise to those around me to be fair! From the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed, I’m looking for my next sugar hit. It’s certainly not ideal but growing up in Scotland with sweet treats like Scottish Tablet, it’s really unavoidable.
They’re a literal obsession in our house. Requested every day after nursery as a ‘special treat’, the number one choice of Easter Egg this year and even the most-viewed videos on Youtube. I just can’t seem to escape Kinder Eggs! So instead of resenting the amount of money I spend on these little surprise eggs and cursing the number of toys I stand on over the course of a day, I decided to make the most of their alluring taste and turn them into Kinder Egg Brownies!

And it could only be the Scots who would come up with a pet-name such as Fly Cemetery for a sweet little pastry treat like Fruit Slice. Read More
When I first asked Granny to share her Maltesers Slice recipe with me, she rattled it off the top of her head without a second thought. This is another one of her recipes that has been well and truly perfected, to the point she knows it straight from memory. Just like Granny’s Fudge Slice recipe, this Maltesers Slice is super easy and super tasty. Read More
If there’s one kind of recipe that no one can fail at, it’s a tray bake! Deceivingly named as the majority of them don’t require any baking, tray bakes are the perfect way to impress people with your baking skills, without actually having any. Fudge Slice is especially easy and as equally delicious. Read More
There’s two things I think of when I think of my Granny (The Boys Great Granny): endless cups of tea & Coconut Ice. And not the pink & white condensed milk version that seems to come up whenever you search for a recipe. I’m talking about the good old fashioned Scottish sweet shop version with just 3 simple ingredients, boiled in a pot until it “spits at you”! Read More
