I've posted 2 recipes in a row! Once you start baking, you just want to continue doing it. Luckily for me, I've currently run out of caster sugar and icing sugar so there's been no baking in my household for the last few days.

The other day I had a sudden craving for these (just remembering the ones I had from Maitre Choux back in London) so I decided to look it up to see if it was difficult to make. It seemed straight forward so I decided to try them out. First attempt wasn't a complete disaster but you can see in the pictures below, it wasn't particularly pretty to look at. I piped them like walnut whips and it just expanded out of control lol


So here's the recipe into making these light and puffy mini choux!!


So after my first failed attempt on making marshmallow cookies (they turned out very dry and the marshmallow hardened like honeycomb) I decided to look for recipes for brownie cookies and then add the marshmallows during the last couple of minutes of baking. This time I made 2 batches, one with one marshmallow in the middle and quite chunky and the other with smaller pieces of marshmallows and spread out thinner. The thinner one is my preferred option as it turned out softer compared to the chunkier one.

These will definitely satisfy your chocolate craving!

Photos were taken under really bad kitchen lighting at night so excuse my images...


140g butter
170g of caster sugar
180g all purpose flour
6 heaped tbs of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
50g of semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used 40g of 70% dark chocolate which I cut into smaller chunks)
Marshmallows ( as much or as little as you want)



I currently only have 2 floating shelves installed in my home (one in the open plan living area and one in Leo's room)
Shelves are one of the easiest areas to restyle on a regular basis and I especially enjoy styling my son's one!

These are my tips to creating a fun and cool shelf and ways to up your shelfie game! (sorry about the inconsistency of photos, these have all been taken with different cameras/mobiles, time of day and lighting etc)
