Tempt – the cook book for chocoholics

I do like cake, especially chocolate cake, and actually I’m not alone in that.  We are a household of chocolate cake fans.  In fact, Daddy P and Monkey will eat anything if the world chocolate is mentioned.  So I knew the latest release from Parragon Books was going to be a winner. Tempt – the cook book for chocoholics arrived in the post and it was so hard to decide what recipe to bake first.


Whether you are looking for a chocolate biscuit, a roulade, hot chocolate or peppermint creams, with 80 recipes, Tempt is going have something to fit the bill. We all love our cakes so I decided the first recipe I’d try would be the White Chocolate and Blackberry Muffins.


The recipes are all really easy to follow, with clear instructions, including prep time. All include photographs to tempt you even more!

I did find that the recipe made a lot more than 12 muffins but I haven’t had any complaints from my two willing testers.  These muffins have gone down rather well and Monkey and Daddy P have already put in their next order – Choc Berry Rockets, although I’m inclined to be tempted by the Plain Chocolate and Amaretto Truffles.  Yum!

Tempt is available from Waterstones, WHSmiths and Amazon (I’ve included my affiliate link below for your reference)
