Chocolate covered Strawberries

It is simple, and just as decadent as it looks so snack wisely

The number it makes will depend on the size of your ice block tray. Ours turned out to be perfect for a single strawberry

Ingredients:

200g Dark Chocolate - 70 - 80% we used 80% but 70 % is still good

8 strawberries fresh (simply how many until we ran out of chocolate)

Steps;

Melt the dark chocolate, and spoon a tbsp into the base of the ice tray. Drop a strawberry in and then cover with chocolate

Repeat until you run out of chocolate

Put ice tray in the freezer for around 10-15mins.

Pop out of the tray... enjoy

Raspberry Cloud

Ingredients:

4 egg whites

170gm raspberries (fresh or defrosted frozen)

3tbsp of maple syrup

Steps:

Preheat your oven to 200deg Celsius 

puree raspberries in a blender, you can then strain the seeds or leave them, honestly I have done both, equally delicious, it is just smoother without the seeds

In a mixer, beat 4 egg whites until the thicken , and peaks start to form. Slowly add the maple syrup, the mix will be glossy with peaks

Fold to combine the puree and egg mix until even and consistent pink colour.

Spoon into the ramekins, ours are large ramekins so we made 4 large souffles.

Fill to the top and even the top surface with the back of a spatula

Place ramekins on a tray and bake in the bottom 1/3 of the oven.

Smaller std ramekins bake for 8-10 mins, larger ramekins like ours 12-15mins, or until souffle rises ~2cm from the rim

Serve immediately and enjoy!!

Hot Crossed Buns

Ingredients:

250g butter (organic grass fed), cubed

6 eggs, separated

2 cups almond flour

1 cup coconut flour

½ cup maple syrup

2 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp nutmeg

1 tbsp all spice

Choc version

½ cup choc bits

1/8 cup cocoa

Fruit version

¼ cup apricots

¼ cup chopped dried cranberries

Steps:

Preheat oven to 180°C and line a tray with baking paper

In a large bowl combine butter, almond, coconut flour and spices. Use your hands to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it forms a crumbly mixture.

Add egg yolks and maple syrup and mix well.

(I split the mixture in half here to make both versions)

Add either Choc Mix or Fruit Mix (or split half half like I did) and mix well.

In a separate bowl whip egg whites until they form a fluffy consistency then fold the egg whites into the other mixture.

Softly roll the mixture into ball shapes and place into lined muffin pans

(TIP: Gloss with some egg white or milk so they are shiny when they are cooked)

To complete the Easter look, melt some butter with 100% cacao and save for the buns once they have cooled or just melt dark chocolate to make a cross on the top of your hot cross buns (or love hearts haha). If you want to avoid the chocolate make a cross shaped cut along the top about 2-3mm deep before baking.

Put in the oven for 45-60 minutes or until the buns are golden brown on the outside and quite firm to touch

Allow to cool slightly (ours didn’t last long “cooling” on a wire tray and then decorate with your chocolate.
