Ingredients

For the pastry:

115g Country Range Plain Flour

55g Country Range Unsalted Butter, cooled and sliced

25g icing sugar, sifted

1 egg yolk

For the filling and topping:

75g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)

30g Country Range Unsalted Butter

115g light brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs

40g Country Range Plain Flour

Country Range Pink and White Marshmallows

Method

  1. Sift the flour into the mixing bowl. Add the butter and rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
  2. Lightly beat the egg yolk with 1 tbsp cold water. Add the flour mixture and mix in with a round-bladed knife. Gather together to make a soft dough.
  3. Wrap in cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling out.
  4. Roll out and line with 12 individual tartlet cases and blind bake for about 15-20 minutes.
  5. Next, prepare the filling. Melt the chocolate and butter together, either over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave on medium power. Allow to cool slightly.
  6. Beat the eggs and add in the sugar a little at a time, then add the chocolate mixture and mix until everything is well combined. Sift in the flour and stir well.

Ingredients

150g egg whites

100g caster sugar

180g Country Range Ground Almonds

270g icing sugar

Country Range Freeze Dried Fruit (Strawberry Slices, Whole Raspberries, Whole Blackberries, Whole Blueberries)

Fruit buttercream

Method

  1. Line baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  2. Whisk the egg whites to glossy firm peaks, adding caster sugar a little at a time. Add food colouring at this point if you wish to colour them.
  3. Sift the almonds with the icing sugar and discard any coarse pieces. Combine the two well.
  4. Incorporate the egg whites into the dry ingredients using a large spatula. Work the mixture with a plastic scraper, press down well going back and forward to press out the oxygen from the whites. Do this for no more than 5 minutes until you have a smooth mixture.
  5. The result should form a soft mixture that forms a ribbon on the scraper. Transfer to a piping bag and pipe onto sheets, about 3cm diameter for medium ones. Leave a good space between as they do spread.
  6. Crush the dried fruit pieces and sprinkle on top then leave to set for about 30 minutes. When they are hard to touch, they are ready to go into the oven.
  7. Whilst setting, pre-heat the oven to 160°C (fan oven). Bake the macaroons in the centre of the oven, 1 tray at a time, for 10-12 minutes.
  8. Test after 8 minutes. Touch the top of the macaroon and gently move your finger side to side. If there is a wobble, cook for a further 3-4 minutes until firm.
  9. Leave on the tray to cool then remove with a palette knife.
  10. Make a buttercream filling with fresh fruit and fill the macaroons.

140g caster sugar

1 egg yolk

2 tsp vanilla extract

300g Country Range Plain Flour

food colourings

Country Range Mini Mixed Chocolate Coated Beans

  2. Sift over 300g plain flour and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix, then press the dough together.

Ingredients

225g Country Range Unsalted Butter, at room temperature

200g granulated sugar

215g light brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

350g Country Range Self Raising Flour

60g Country Range Cocoa Powder

1 tsp Country Range Bicarbonate of Soda

1/2 tsp salt

110g each of Country Range Milk, White and Dark Chocolate Chunks

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C and lightly grease two baking trays.
  2. Add the butter and sugars to a large bowl and beat until creamy, light and fluffy.
  3. Add one egg, then beat until well incorporated. Add the second egg and vanilla extract and beat until they are also well incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and the salt and mix until everything is combined.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. The cookie dough will become very thick. You only need to mix until everything has combined.
  6. Add half the chocolate chunks to the cookie dough and stir until they are evenly distributed.
  7. Measure a rounded tablespoon of cookie dough and drop onto baking trays, making sure there is enough space for the cookies to spread. Press a few of the remaining chocolate chunks onto the top of each cookie.
  8. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the cookies have puffed a little and the tops are dry. Cool on baking trays for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Ingredients

145g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)

60g Country Range Unsalted Butter

225g light brown sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3 large eggs

80g Country Range Plain Flour

100g Country Range Mixed Chocolate Chunks

50g Country Range Pink and White Marshmallows

50g Country Range Chocolate Coated Rice Balls

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 150°C. Grease and line a loaf tin.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter together, either over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave on medium power, allow to cool slightly.
  3. Beat the eggs and add in the sugar a little at a time, then add the chocolate mixture and mix until everything is well combined.
  4. Sift in the flour and stir well, then stir in most of the chocolate chunks, marshmallows and chocolate coated rice balls.
  5. Pour the mix into the prepared loaf tin and scatter the remaining chocolate chunks, marshmallows and rice balls over the top before baking.
  6. Tap the tin to get rid of any excess air and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-35 minutes. It is important not to overcook the brownies as they can dry out a little if overbaked and are much nicer when they are a little gooey on the inside!
  7. Leave to cool in the tin until completely cold, then turn out and cut into squares.

Ingredients

For the doughnuts:

2 x 7g sachets dried active baking yeast

60ml warm water (45°C)

355ml lukewarm milk

100g caster sugar

1 tsp salt

2 eggs

75g Country Range Butter

625g Country Range Plain Flour

1 ltr Country Range Vegetable Oil, for frying

For the chocolate glaze:

115g Country Range Butter

60ml warm milk

1 tbsp golden syrup

2 tsp vanilla extract

115g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa), finely chopped

250g icing sugar

Country Range Chocolate Vermicelli

Method

  1. Sprinkle the yeast over warm water and leave to stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the yeast mixtures, milk, sugar, salt, eggs, butter and half of the flour. Stir with a wooden spoon until smooth, then beat in remaining flour a little at a time until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. Knead for about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place the dough into a greased bowl and cover. Set in a warm place to rise until doubled in size.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently roll out to 1cm (1/2") thickness. Cut with a floured round cutter. Let the doughnuts sit out to rise again until doubled in size.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large heavy pan to 175°C. Slide the doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula. Turn doughnuts over as they rise to the surface. Fry doughnuts on each side until golden brown, and allow to cool while you make the chocolate glaze.
  5. For the chocolate glaze, combine butter, milk, syrup and vanilla in a saucepan over a medium heat until the butter is melted. Decrease the heat to low, add the chocolate and whisk until melted. Turn off heat, add the icing sugar and whisk until smooth. Place the mixture over a bowl of warm water to keep it runny and dip the doughnuts immediately. Sprinkle the chocolate vermicelli over each doughnut while the glaze is still runny, then allow it to set for 30 minutes before serving.
