You will probably remember me telling you last week about the glut of strawberries we had – and ooooooooo they were such good strawberries – hand-picked they were super fresh, sweet, juicy and just oh-so-delicious!

I had so many recipe ideas I honestly didn’t know where to start. But I had been promising myself for ages that I would make a strawberry cheesecake chocolate cup. It’s like taking two of my favourite foods in the entire world and layering then together! Oh no wait it is taking two of my favourite foods in the entire world and layering them together!! They are just heavenly! Only problem with these is that they are super hard to resist! And that’s not just for me!!!

They melt on the tongue burst with rich chocolate and sweet strawberry! No wonder they are gone in a flash!

Just a quick tip when making them – chocolate cups can be a little tricky – especially the smaller ones. If you put the strawberry mix in the freezer and leave it until it is fairly firm it is easier to shape. This means that you can use a teaspoon to shape a round and pour the chocolate over the top whilst it is still firm – magic!

So pull out those mini cupcake cases and let’s get melting! (btw if you don’t have a mini cupcake tin don’t worry ordinary ones work just as well they will just be twice the size – and how can that be a bad thing?!?!)
