With all the healthiness that has been coming out of the Crumbs and Corkscrews kitchen recently, I thought it was probably about time that we added a little sweetness back into the mix, and there had to be chocolate too. It’s a given really, sweet treats and chocolate; you can’t go wrong! So as Ian and I are ‘trying’ to be a little healthier, I decided that as I was the New Girl at work that I would inflict my baking on my lovely colleagues and not give in to my sweet tooth craving.
My first week in the new job was a whirlwind, the manic but exciting time of getting to know everyone, going through the business, processes, waiting for the first email to land in my inbox, finding the loos and importantly knowing where the kettle is. So at the end of my first week when I decided to have a little baking session, I was shattered and not really up for creating something overly extravagant, but I knew I just wanted to bake.
As usual there’s normally something lurking in the fridge that I wanted to use up; this time it was some egg whites. I had planned to whip them up into some slightly more Weight Watcher friendly meringues. But as much as I love those little pillows of fluffy meringue, it was chocolate that won the day….
