My mum use to be a dinner lady at my upper school, which was cool as I use to get extra chips! Not only that I have a copy of the school recipe book. Tonight I made Chocolate Crunch for the childrens lunch boxes. Do you remember chocolate crunch with pink custard?

Recipe ready

 Great as a snack with a tea
Or as supper with a glass of milk

Nigella Cheesecake

Have you all been enjoying the new Nigella series? I have and thought I would have a go at the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake from the 1st show.

It tasted yummy, only thing was I had chunky peanut butter and the recipe needed smooth. I could tell why!
