Baking Chocolate Crunch

Hi guys!

So lately, all I’ve spent a lot of time binge watching Sophie and Dave vlogs on YouTube. ( They’re so sweet, you should really check them out.) In one of their vlogs, they made chocolate crunch and I felt really inspired to try it myself. It’s quite difficult to describe, you have to have tried it to know what i’m on about. I think the best way to describe it is if a bourbon biscuit and a brownie had a baby, that is how it would taste.

This is such an easy, effortless recipe to make! If you would like to make it, you will need:

  • 300g Granulated Sugar
  • 300g plain flour
  • 80g cocoa powder
  • 180g butter

To make chocolate crunch, you will need to:

  • Sift the sugar, cocoa powder and flour into a bowl.
  • Melt the butter, then pour it into the dry ingredients. Mix it together until combined.
  • Pour it into a greased baking tray, and pat it down firmly. Bake for 30 mins at 180 degrees.
  • Once out the oven, sprinkle sugar over the top and wait for it to cool, before serving.

Final thoughts:

This tastes amazing! Although i’m not really sure what you’d class this as, (its not really a biscuit or brownie), I think this is my new favourite treat! I remember eating this in primary school and completely forgot that it existed until now. Its super easy to make, and you can either eat it alone or add warm custard to it, its completely up to you. It’s definitely worth a try if youre short on time, but really want a chocolatey sweet treat!

Whats your favourite dessert?

Take care,

The British Tag

Hey guys!

I haven’t wrote anything in a while and do enjoy doing the occasional tag, so here you go!

How many cups of tea do you have a day, and how many sugars

Usually 3 or 4 at the most, with 2 sweeteners . ( theyre not as bad for you as sugar, and I can hardly tell the difference )

Favorite part of your roast?

Definetly the roast potatoes. Sometimes theyre roasted with garlic and rosemary, other times theyre sprinkled with seasoning – and theyre always delicious!

Favorite dunking biscuit?

Chocolate chip buiscuits, or chocolate bourbons.

Favorite quintissentially british pastime?

Maybe going out to a nice pub and having a calvery on a sunday,  because my family always used to do that in the summer when I was younger.

Favorite word?

“Faffing.” Im not sure why, but I say it quite a lot.

Cockney rhyming slang?

I dont know much cockney rhyming slang, other than “apples and pears”.

Favorite sweet?

Sometimes, on the rare occasion, I love chocolate lime sweets. Theyre basically a hard, boiled lime sweet wigh chocolate in the middle. It probably sounds weird, but theyre so nice.

What would your pub be called?

My grandma was the reason I took interest in baking/cooking in the first place, so I feel like itd only be fair to name it after her. Also, its always a real treat as she bakes everything from scratch, so maybe “Val’s homemade treats” or something like that. Im not sure.

No.1 british person?

Zoe Sugg ( aka Zoella) . Ive watched her videos for a few years now, and she always comes across as such a lovely person in her vlogs. Plus I kind of wish I could do my makeup as well as she can!

Favorite shop/resturant

A resturant I love is The Harvester. Its a tad expensive, but the meals are amazing – plus you cant go wrong with a free salad bar.

What British song pops into your head?

All About You by Mcfly. Ive loved this band for a good 10 years ( so since I was 8 years old) and all their old songs will always be my favorite because they bring back so many memories.


Yuck, I hate it! I’d sooner have Bovril on toast instead.

Thats all guys, I hope you’re having a lovely day and ill be back very soon with a new blog post!
