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!
