Kinnerton’s Dairy-free Chocolate Bars

I’ve been using this stuff for a couple of years now and I should have done a review before now… so here we go.

Kinnerton launched as a nut-free chocolate manufacturer some years back. This remains their main line and they have quite a number of different easter eggs which are made in their dedicated […]

Chocolate Scrumble

This is a delicious and really easy pud for a party. It’s loosely based on Eton mess – with the emphasis on loosely! This travels well before it’s assembled, so it works very well as a dessert to take to a party.

Recipe: Chocolate Scrumble Ingredients 1 quantity of chocolate sauce (see previous recipe) 4 […]

Choc-mint squares

These are so easy to make and they make a lovely after-dinner mint which is sadly lacking these days since pretty much everybody commercial has started to put milk/butterfat into plain chocolate. You do need to be lucky and have one of the few stores to have dairy-free digestive biscuits on their shelves nearby, but […]

Marvellous Chocolate Mousse

Very occasionally, I get the time to make something other than jam/chutney at the moment. (Watch this space for a pear chutney recipe coming soon). If you have limited time, but want something which looks and tastes good, these are perfect.They are delicious and very easy. They take about 10 – 15 minutes to throw […]

Fantastic Chocolate Sponge Cake

This has been a mainstay of my family for more years than I can remember. It is easy to make and produces a reliably delicious, light and fluffy cake. The only thing which you must NEVER EVER do is open the oven before 20 minutes of the cooking time have passed. You can make a […]

Chocolate Crème Brulée

Goes down a storm and you can’t tell it’s dairy-free. Down sides? Expensive and fiddly to make.

For this recipe you will need a smallish basin and a saucepan to make a bain marie, a large mixing bowl, an electric hand mixer, a second saucepan and 6 ramekins about 2″ / 5cm deep by 3″ […]

Chocolate Fingers

These are sticky and very more-ish.

For this recipe you will need a medium to large heavy-bottomed non-stick saucepan (you do all the mixing in this so it needs to be big enough), a food processor or a rolling pin, a wooden spoon and a baking tray measuring 12″ / 30cm by 8½” / 21cm.


Chocolate Log

This is every bit as delicious as the original (indeed, the original swiss roll is fat free in the first place). The icing is the adjusted part.

You must be organised to make a good swiss roll. Don’t start this recipe without reading it all the way through first. You must have everything you […]
