Nutella Stuffed Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies? Yes. Sea Salt with dark chocolate? Always. Stuffed with Nutella? Are you kidding me?

This may be the best combo ever… and they taste as good as they sound. Healthy? No but in a new world of green juices, chia puddings and super food salads, sometimes you need a gooey nutella-stuffed-sea-salt-chocolate-chip-cookie. And they’re super easy to make – score!

My Haute List: Signe Johansen

If you haven’t heard of Signe you can thank your lucky stars we’re introducing you to her here. Signe is a writer, cook and consultant who grew up in Norway & now lives in London. Having trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine, Signe has worked in some of the UK’s top restaurants. She’s even got two seriously scrumptious books to her name Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking…Scandilicious and  Scandilicious Baking.

We love Signe’s authentic style and the warmth that radiates from her recipes. We dare you not to fall for her dreamy Nordic treats like the cinnamon bun cake or whimsical heart-shaped waffles. Fluffy French patisserie is all well and good but sometimes you need a heartwarming Scandi in your life. Or more specifically your kitchen. (more…)

Maybe it’s because we were the kids that fully embraced the dress-up box, or maybe it’s because of a tween/teenage predilection for Goosebumps, Tim Burton and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Most likely it’s down to the fact that it’s a holiday centred around sugar.

Haute Bakes: Epic Raspberry Brownies

It’s time I came clean. I have an addiction. I’ve had it for a long time now, and to be frank I have no desire to quit. That’s right, I’m addicted to brownies. Everyone loves cupcakes, and that’s fine. I’m partial to a red velvet when executed well, and I’d never turn down a Hummingbird black bottom. But nothing touches a brownie. These dense, fudgy nuggets of chocolate goodness can’t be beat in my book. (more…)
