HOW TO AVOID HALLOWEEN

This post is sponsored as part of my ambassador role with Studio.

I’m not a fan of Halloween at all, I don’t like scary films, I don’t particularly like dressing up and I don’t like anything pumpkin or spice flavoured. I’d much prefer to spend my October 31st snuggled under a blanket, eating yummy food and drinking a hot chocolate – so that’s what I’m going to do! My kitchen is in the middle of a pretty epic renovation at the moment, so say hello to another room in my parents house (you’re getting to see quite a bit of their house on here, but it’ll all be mine when the renovations are finished, I promise!)

Now, I would never say I was good at baking, but I enjoy doing it, so I’ve attempted to make Chocolate Meringue and Triple Chocolate Brownies with this shiny food mixer – Kitchen Aid style but for a fraction of the price (currently reduced from £179.99 to £59.99!). It comes with 3 attachments, a whisk, a dough hook and a cake beater and is available in quite a few different colours. It’s ridiculously easy to use, everything is labelled and I didn’t need to look at the instructions at all! I’ll include the recipes at the end of this post if you want to join in… well maybe wait till you see how it turns out first…

And what better drink to go with gooey brownies and melt in the mouth meringues – a hot chocolate! In case you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a bit of a chocoholic… I say bit… I think I’m actually addicted – I blame my Mum eating 12 Easter eggs in a day when she was 8 months pregnant with me..

So yeah, that’s how I’m planning to avoid Halloween… eating all of the sugar and being a ball of cosy. The recipes I used are here: Triple Chocolate Brownies and Chocolate Swirl Meringue.

    We try to avoid Halloween too! Found your site looking for midnight blue cabinet ideas. I’m going to go for it! I want to love my kitchen too, and that means making some changes. Thanks for the inspiration. Keep baking! Amy

      Good luck with the renovation! If I had a bigger kitchen I would have definitely gone to the dark side!
