Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Mint Chocolate Cookies

The mint chocolate combination is one that has stood the test of time. For example, mint choc chip ice cream and after dinner mints being the well known ones. These cookies combine the mint choc chip flavours in deliciously chewy cookies.

As a teen, I would always stop at the bakery on the way to high school. It would be just after 8am and the sausage rolls were fresh out of the oven and the cakes were all ready and waiting in the cake stand. One of my favourites that they had was a peppermint crunch. A chocolatey coconut crunchy base, topped with minty fondant and a chocolate ganache top. These cookies combine these flavours and textures, but in a cookie.
