Mars Bar Chocolate Mud Cupcakes

I seem to have developed this obsession of putting Mars Bar Chocolate into everything. I have put them in cookies, cake and now cupcakes. I find that Mars Bar Chocolate is quite versatile to bake with.

My latest experiment involved putting Mars Bar Chocolate into chocolate mud cupcakes. I used my existing Mississippi Chocolate Mud Cupcake recipe and added the Mars Bar Chocolate.

The results were divine! The gooey caramel and chewy nougat of the Mars Bar Chocolate worked well with the cupcakes. The cupcakes ended up being so rich in texture, that I did not need to put icing on the cupcake.


The Mars Bar Chocolate Mud Cupcakes were so easy to make. I cut half a fun size Mars Bar into each cupcake mixture in the cupcake cases and when the Mars Bar Chocolate Mud Cupcakes are baked the Mars Bar Chocolate rises to the top of the cupcake.

I have to warn you though, these Mars Bar Chocolate Mud Cupcakes are so addictive, definitely a chocoholic’s dream.


Mini Melting Moments by Charlie’s Cookies

Nothing is more relaxing that a strong cup of T2’s Irish Breakfast Tea and a good quality biscuit. I am quite fussy when it comes to biscuits and I find it really hard to find a biscuit that passes my biscuit snob test.

Today I discovered Charlie’s Cookies Mini Melting Moments. I had seen these biscuits at Gloria Jeans coffee shops and I really wanted to try them, but I promised my husband that I would not waste money trying new things. (This is a bad habit of mine, and can be expensive).

At the Cake, Bake and Sweets Show, I got to try Charlie’s Cookies Mini Melting Moments and I was immediately impressed. Charlie’s Cookies Mini Melting Moments were not heavy in taste like most melting moments biscuits and they tasted amazing. The biscuit flavour was so delicious (not heavy) and not too sweet and the cream centre was the perfect amount.

My favourite out of the whole range was the Choc “Noir” Mint. The Choc “Noir” Mint tasted like a peppermint biscuit and was so moreish, that I could have easily eaten the whole box. I also really liked the Choc Salted Caramel. I ended up buying three boxes of Charlie’s Cookies Mini Melting Moments, I could have honestly bought more.



I am so excited to have found a biscuit that I love. I really want to try the rest of the range some day. The other flavours included: Blackcurrant “Cassis”, Traditional Lemon, and Raspberry and White Choc.

Life’s Short. Enjoy every mini moment.

Charlie’s Cookies Mini Melting Moments cost $12.00 per a box and can be bought online or in some stores.

Magnum’s Honeycomb Crunch Ice Cream

My friend had been nagging me for weeks to try Magnum’s new ice cream flavour, Honeycomb Crunch. I was not entirely convinced because I am not a huge fan of Magnum’s ice cream range. Finally after getting sick of her nagging, I caved in and bought a box.

Magnum’s Honeycomb Crunch ice cream is part of their limited edition range. I am not entirely sure how long they will keep selling the ice cream, but I have seen it in my local Coles supermarket the other week.


Magnum’s Honeycomb Crunch chocolate ended up being so delicious. The ice cream was so smooth and creamy and the honeycomb flavouring was divine. I really loved how the chocolate shell of the ice cream had honeycomb bits. I am now officially addicted and my friend is now rubbing it in that she was right.


I think I have now found my new favourite supermarket ice cream. Shame I cannot eat many because of my gestational diabetes diet.

Magnum Honeycomb Crunch is sold at most Coles and Woolworths Supermarkets and cost around $8.00.
