Nice cold chocolatey refreshments!

In this warm weather you really need a nice cold chocolatey drink to quench your thirst and tastes delicious.  I have a non alcoholic recipe and an alcoholic one to try further down the page.  

These drinks are really nice offered with little  chocolate treats to go with them, and that's where our Palet Gourmand, fruit and nut buttons come from.  It stems from an idea our French office suggested and is really popular over there.  A really nice balance of the sweet and and a little savoury from the nuts.  They are not too big, just right to pop in your mouth and enjoy.  Dark chocolate coated coffee beans are another nibble that are quite irresistable, once you've had one you want another.

So picture this, sitting on the patio in comfortable chairs, a glass in one hand and a bowl of little chocolate treats on the coffee table, good company or a good book..sounds like a great way to relax.


Biscoff Brownie Milkshake 

This is a really quick and easy recipe, borrowed from the lovely Emma at Kitchen Mason blog.

Here is what you will need to serve 4. (makes approx 800ml)

  • 360ml Semi Skimmed Milk
  • 160g Soft Scoop Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 100g Smooth Biscoff Spread
  • 120g Mini Brownies
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 x Biscoff Biscuits, crumbled (Optional)
  • 1 x Extra piece of Brownie, crumbled (Optional)


In a food processor or a blender, whizz up together the milk, ice cream & biscoff spread until smooth,  Add the brownies and vanilla extract and salt

and then whizz again until very smooth.  Pour into glasses, sprinkle the crumbled biscoff biscuit and brownie and enjoy immediately whilst nice and cold.


Now for an adult chocolatey drink - this is amazing!

150g milk chocolate

Baileys Irish liqueur


You are going to need some little truffle paper cases for this and a baking tray that will fit in the fridge.  Melt the chocolate very slowly in a microwave suitable bowl.  Make sure you do it until there are just a few lumps left and then just stir and let them melt out, don't be tempted to heat it a bit more.

Pour into the little cases, and then turn the cases upside down over the bowl to let the chocolate drip away.  This is a bit fiddly but place upside down on the baking tray and just nudge them back into shape. Pop in the fridge to set.

Take them out after aproximately 10 minutes and peel off the paper cases.  Turn the right way up and fill with Baileys or another liqueur, pop in your mouth and enjoy.
