Squires Baking Magazine - Visual Candy - Literally!

As I was walking around my local newsagent today I happened to stumble upon a beautiful baking book from the UK.

It is published by Squires baking school in England and has the most beautiful recipes, pictures and creataive ideas about baking I have ever seen. I bought the 3rd issue for spring and I loved it so much I have now created an account with them and plan to buy the first 2 issues as well as some of their other products.
Oh yeah their list of products sold online is amaziiiing!

They have everything from 5 kg of Bridal icing paste to icing colours, sugar decorations, moulds, cookie cutters, kitchen scales and really everything you could want or need for baking!

Turkish Delight Hot Chocolate

I have a deep love for the flavour of turkish delight.

Good turkish delight is amazing to cook with and of course we all know it goes well with chocolate, so why not drink it?

So here is my recipe for a beautiful turkish delight hot chocolate

Serves 2


- 1 Tablespoon of the softest best Turkish delight you can get ( I prefer the kind you can get from traditional lolly shops at the markets) 
- 4 Teaspoons of Rosewater ( not essence)
- 1 teaspoon raw sugar
- 2 Tablespoons the best coco powder you can get
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 1/2 Cup of milk


Place all ingredients in a saucepan on a medium heat and stir until all dissolved, do not let boil.
You can add any little chunks of turkish delight left over that didn't get time to melt into each glass if you like.

Enjoy xoxo
