The way to this girl's heart...

is well and truly through her tummy!

The boyf and I decided not to bother with pressies for Valentine's day but I did come home to find a tray-full of these waiting for me....

I give you mini chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream topped off with milk chocolate covered pretzels :)

I'm not sure if any of you remember being able to buy these pretzels about 12 years or so ago. Andy and I were reminiscing about how much we liked them a few weeks back so he decided to have a go at making them from scratch. The mix of sweet and salty means they're definitely an acquired taste but I love them :)

Until next time,


  1. They were called Flipz weren't they?! I loved them. The cakes look cute!

    @ Amy they're very dinky..the pretzels kind of remind me of little hearts - that's what I'm telling myself anyway!
