BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH CHOCOLATE 

Transforming balls of prepared butternut squash into truffles makes sense when you consider the soft texture. This recipe is a convenient way to use up leftover squash by turning savory into sweet. Get creative by sprinkling your truffles with elements like caramel, rum or chocolates you have in the cupboard.

CHOCOLATE BEETS BROWNIES

These brownies are packed with earthy goodness from beetroot — this also means you have to use less sugar and butter. They are perfect with a cup of coffee to enjoy. And you can also store them for a few days. 

CHOCOLATE APPLE BETTY

Are you a fan of easy traybake recipes? Apple Betty’s are easy to pop in the oven, a real American classic. There is no need to peel your apples, and any kind of apple works. Just pour your chocolate over them and they’re good to go. 

(VEGAN) BRAZILIAN STYLE CARROT PIE 

This cake is probably different from any carrot cake you’ve ever had. A Brazilian carrot cake is a light and airy cake. And almost completely covered with dark chocolate. By using prepared vegetables there’s no need to do all the carrot peeling first. 

(VEGAN) CHOCOLATE COURGETTE BREAD

You probably haven’t combined courgettes with chocolate before. But if you want a dessert that is less sweet, try this easily baked courgette bread. All you need to add iis cocoa and chocolate chips. The moisture of the courgette will bind the ingredients together, and the cake won’t taste like vegetables at all.
