DOUBLE CHOCOLATE HOMEMADE "MAGNUM" ICE CREAM BARS

Hello everyone!

{Spanish here}

I write this while suffering from the unbearable heat we have in Barcelona. In a dark room, in order to avoid the sun to make the temperatures escalate even more. It's not ideal, spending your summer in such a hot city, specially without the possibility of taking a dip whenever you need it...

How to do Crepes and Rhubarb and Strawberry Jam

Hello everyone!

{Spanish here}

Today's recipe is one of the first things I ever learned to do in a kitchen. I must have been around 11 years old, spending my summer at the Mediterranean coast with my parents, uncles and cousin. It was my cousin Núria, actually, who taught us how to do crepes. 

I remember being very excited about it, too. I was completely blown away when she just flipped the crepe in the air, with a skilled flick of her wrist. We would melt some chocolate and everyone would fill their own, topping them with some whipped cream or simply with some jam.

Today's recipe is, maybe, kind of not seasonal. At least, not suitable for a picnic, and I should know... Let me explain myself; this is a recipe that I had been meaning to do for a long time. It has always looked amazing to me, the crispness of the shortcrust pastry combined with the sweetness of the chocolate, to feel the crunch of the almonds in your mouth as you eat... and all of it on a thin layer of salted caramel.

Chocolate your Milk!

Hello everyone!

Today's post is very similar to some of the "hot chocolate in a stick" posts that you can easily find on Pinterest. I, however, do not agree with the fact that this is hot chocolate. 

For me, hot chocolate is rich, and so thick that you can stick a spoon in it and it will stand. Hot chocolate is a Christmas morning, when my dad would go out and buy some "churros" for us to have breakfast. So no, this is NOT hot chocolate.
