Welcome to #CookBlogShare Week #7!
#CookBlogShare is a weekly link party where we share recipes, comment on each other’s cooking creations and generally immerse ourselves in the world of gastronomy! If you’ve got a recipe this is the place to show it off!
I have the pleasure of co-hosting this link party together with 2 fantastic bloggers and each of us gets to host about once a month. The other co-hosts are: Eb@Easy Peasy Foodie and Jacqui@Recipes Made Easy.
#CookBlogShareis also occasionally guest hosted. Next week it will be hosted by Choclette from Tin and Thyme.
If you are new to this link party please take a moment to read the guidelines below. Joining is very simple and you are welcome to share your old and new recipes (there is no specific theme and all recipes are welcome).
Thank you to everyone who shared their recipe with us last week.
#CookBlogShare Week #7
The theme that stood out for me the most among last week’s entries was chocolate! Which was very timely as Valentine’s Day is coming soon so the more chocolate the better! All the chocolate recipes were delicious, creative, and very different from one another, which I love. We had two chocolate desserts with fruit, one with mint and one in the form of cookies.
I’ve had chocolate on my mind lately too! First I made these chocolate peanut butter energy balls with coffee and quinoa. I have a compulsion to add a healthy twist to every recipe I create, hence the quinoa. So these mini chocolate treats are sweet and indulgent but they also contain a good amount of healthy protein.
Another compulsion I suffer from a lot is making miniature sweet things. So in addition to the mentioned mocha balls I recently made healthy strawberry cheesecake bites, which also contain chocolate, except the white kind. I am usually drawn to dark chocolate but in this recipe it just had to be white. How else would I be able to make these strawberry balls pink? Plus white chocolate was made for strawberries I think – it’s just such a delicious flavour combination!
And here are this week’s featured Valentine’s chocolate recipes (in the order they were submitted):

THE FEATURES – 4 Easy Valentine’s Chocolate Recipes
Looney for Food shared these decadent, vegan Slow Cooker Fudge Brownies with Cherry Sauce which are not only delicious and gorgeous looking, but also healthy! I have a soft spot not only for healthy desserts but also desserts containing chocolate and cherries together. So these brownies are right up my street! They contain cauliflower flour, which I have never come across but now I know it exists I’ll have to get it asap!
Louise from A Strong Coffee shared a super easy dessert idea that’s great to make with kids. Her No Bake Mint Chocolate Tiffin combines chocolate, biscuits and Aero peppermint bubbles, so it’s filled with delicious textures. It is also incredibly easy to make and looks gorgeous with the bright green Aero bubbles on top!
The Baking Explorer brought to the party her beautiful Chocolate & Raspberry Truffle Cupcakes, which are just perfect for Valentine’s Day. Raspberry is another fruit that tastes delicious with chocolate so I can imagine just how yummy these cupcakes must be. The creamy chocolate ganache in the centre adds an extra special quality to these decadent cupcakes.
The Foodie Journey shared another fantastic bake in the form of Vanilla and Chocolate Marble Cookies. These unusual looking cookies combine two short pastries – vanilla and chocolate – creating a lovely marble effect that’s easier to assemble than you might think. They look and sound super delicious!
