I have to admit I was a little scared when I went to buy the ingredients for this week’s Weekly Bake Off challenge. I came home with four bars of chocolate (350g needed) and 225g chocolate chips and that’s alongside 225g butter and 225g caster sugar! I really love chocolate but I thought I might be preparing myself for a heart attack particularly after just finishing off the yummy chocolate cheesecake from last week! Actually I have to say the finished result was quite delicious, having a ‘rich, grown-up flavour’ as Mary Berry states in her book 100 Cakes and Bakes. I just had to follow Mary’s own advice (told to me by Lauren at http://aroundtheworldin80bakes.com who actually met her!) of having just a small slice myself. I packaged the rest into a pretty box and delivered it as a scrummy gift!
