I have some Cadbury cooking chocolate left over from Christmas that I would like to bake with this weekend.  I have:  large box of cocoa, block of  milk cooking chocolate, 2 bags of  white melts and a bag of milk chocolate baking chips.

What yummy things would you bake?

I have got this amazing chocolate cheesecake slice that uses nearly all those things.  It is very decadent.  Let me know if you want me to find the recipe although from memory the topping is better with dark chocolate.

Otherwise brownies.

Brownies:

Preheat Oven to 160 degrees celsius.

370g Caster Sugar
80g Cocoa Powder
60g Plain Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Sift then mix the above together in a Bowl

4 Eggs beaten
250g Melted Butter
200g Dark chocolate Broken into pieces

add to  the above and mix through with a wooden spoon

pour into a buttered and floured baking tin 9"
Bake for 30-40 minutes until just set

Remove from oven

Allow to cool then turn out onto a tray
(take great care as the brownie is very fragile, it may benefit from being refrigerated, this will also help with cutting the brownie into the required  sized portions)
But take care to serve it at room temp or even give it 15-20 seconds in the microwave to soften the chocolate

Or this chocolate mud cake:

200gm plain choc biscuits crushed (i used choc ripple)
80gm butter melted
100gm choc chips (doesnt matter if dark or milk)

I would crush biscuits in food processor and then drizzle in melted butter, press hard and evenly into a lined and greased lamington tin.  Sprinkle the choc chips over the top evenly.

375gm cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
150gm white choc melted

Beat cream cheese until light and creamy, beat in sugar, beat in eggs 1 at a time, the add the melted white choc beating constantly.  Spread the mixture over the base.
Bake at 180deg for 30mins until just set.  Cool until firm.

150gm dark choc
160gm sour cream

Heat, melting the choc slowly and mix.  It sounds like a wierd combo but it is perfect with the ridiculously sweet bottom 2 layers.  Stir until nice and smooth, spread over the cheesecake layer and refrigerate.

OMG....it is delicious.  Great for a big group as you can really only eat a small piece!  I used to make it for the cafe I worked at.

Thank you for the ideas/ recipes!  I think I will make brownies for the lunch boxes.  Maybe some blondies as well.

Death By Chocolate Muffins.

Basicalliy, You use the normal muffin mix and add in the cocoa, then add in the chips and broken up cooking choc and put white buttons on top.
