If your girlfriend has a sweet tooth, then look no further. I got in touch with Iona Hart, two sisters from London who specialise in the creation of gourmet marshmallows.  They were lovely enough to send over a batch for this recipe and they are absolutely delicious. I got an assortment, ranging from gingerbread, Nutella and hazelnut to Oreo flavoured marshmallows. I was tempted to go with the Nutella option, but I thought it was too soon before I open a jar of Nutella again (it’s a slippery slope). Oreo took the win on this round.

Valentines Day Raspberry Ripple & Disaronno Floats

Celebration, Cocktails, Drinks, Evening, Iced Cream, Party Food, Strawberries, Valentines Day

Nothing screams love like a vibrant cocktail of Disaronno, iced cream and pink lemonade;  A play on the typical ice cream float to send your dream-boat wild, a dreamfloat if you will. Okay I’ll stop –  They’re a treat at the best of times, but throw in a little bit of booze (or a lot) and some strawberries and you’re more than likely going to be the best boyfriend EVER. EVER.

So the cool kids at Joy The Store set me up with a challenge to cook up a recipe from their Nutella recipe book especially for world Nutella day. Naturally; challenge accepted.

Ginger & Cinnamon Hot Cocoa

Nothing screams comfort food like Sunday does. Let’s not lie to ourselves, Sunday emits a particularly alluring sentiment towards the element of casually and subconsciously treating yourself to something delicious to stop you from feeling sorry for yourself (while you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians in your pyjamas). Hungover or not; it’s going to happen and what better way to spend a Sunday evening other than sticking a movie on with a choice cup of hot cocoa.
