Let’s Bake 10: Chocolate Round Up

Thanks to Blend Tea and Coffee Merchants for hosting another Let’s Bake Inverness meeting! We enjoyed an intimate group meeting with 5 bakes being shared around the table.

We also had a break from eating to hear Debbie from The Chocolate Place tell us all about the process from cocoa bean to chocolate bar, and the ins and outs of being a chocolatier. Did you know that Inverness has its own Chocolate Tour? Debbie also organises these too!

On to the bakes and we had a good mix of textures and flavours.

Kirsty made a lovely Jaffa Loaf Cake which as well as having the perfect chocolate drizzle topping, also had a clementine syrup glaze.


Swenja made these ‘Chocolate Overload Bars’ by cleverly making a white chocolate, marshmallow and rice krispie base, making them just a little bit lighter than anticipated!


Dawn made these excellent fudgy salted caramel brownies – these were a big hit with everyone!


I (Susan) made chocolate dipped Banana Biscotti.


Finally Eileen wowed everyone with her delicious white chocolate and pistachio baked cheesecake!


Thanks to everyone for coming, details about the next event will be publicised shortly. To join our mailing list/ask questions, please email letsbakeinverness@gmail.com!
