DOUBLE CHOCOLATE HOMEMADE "MAGNUM" ICE CREAM BARS
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...
Pomegranate and Truffle Tarts
Don't you just love the look of these pomegranate and truffle tarts? The smoothness of soft pink filling contrasting with the fluffiness of the truffle decoration? I love them!
Intense Chocolate and Blackberry Bundt Cake

Walnut and Dark Chocolate Cookies
I know, I am posting a cookie recipe again... The thing is, I've been learning lots of new recipes and I am in the process of doing them and showing them to you here! I will be posting lots of new things soon but, in the meantime, another cookie recipe!
Two Chocolate Almond Tart
After a week with no new posts, I bring you this marvelous tart. Two chocolates, almonds and sprinkled with sea salt flakes that enhance the flavor of this amazing tart. Its very intense. I can safely say that you won't be able to eat just a slice of it!
How to do Crepes and Rhubarb and Strawberry Jam
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.
Chocolate Almond Tartlets
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 French Macarons
I have wanted to do this recipe for a while now. After the success that the
had in my family, I wanted to do macarons again.
Chocolate your Milk!
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.

Chocolate Mini Bundt Cakes
Well, the Holidays are long gone! Now it's time to go back to our routines, right? I know, it doesn't sound too appealing...
Chocolate and Vanilla Layer Cake
Today's recipe was my very first order. My friend wanted a cake to celebrate her birthday with her family and she asked me to do it.
Chocolate and Blackberry Cake
Today's recipe is three layer chocolate cake, with homemade blackberry jam and cream cheese frosting.
Today's cake was a special request from one of my co-workers in my previous job. She once did it herself and, when I asked what should I do next, this came to her mind.
Triple Chocolate Muffins
Ever since I started baking, to make muffins has been something difficult for me. I could follow the recipe word by word but my muffins never ended up being as good as the bakery's ones.
