We Should Cocoa - The March 2014 Challenge

Anybody who has come across Choclette's Chocolate Log Blog before will know that she runs a baking challenge called We Should Cocoa. If you look at my list of tags and notice how many of my posts I have connected to chocolate it will be blindingly obvious why I like this challenge so much. It's always good to make something with one of my two favourite foods and to have a different theme or ingredient each month to experiment with makes things all the more interesting. 

This month however, things are going to be even better for me because I have the pleasure and honour of hosting We Should Cocoa myself! I thought long and hard over what theme I should choose and even roped in my Mum to help. There have been some brilliant themes since the challenge began but in the end I settled on....


Milk, cream, powder, flour, dessicated, gooey, cakey, crunchy - whatever you choose to make it. I could not possibly be more excited to be hosting We Should Cocoa this month and to see what you all come up with. Last month We Should Cocoa was all about random recipes which a lot of people found to be a lot of fun as can be seen in the round up over on Chocolate Log Blog. If you are new to the challenge you can see what us bakers have got up to in previous months here. Submitting your entry is easy via the linky tool below though you can email me your entry if you prefer (see rules for more info). 

So, all that remains to be said is have fun baking!
