Mini Chocolate Marble Sponges

Mini Chocolate Marble Sponges

In honour of #WorldChocolateDay I incorporated chocolate into my baking today. Quick and easy, these mini chocolate marble sponges were made in a silicone friand tray and have a chocolate swirl added for a pretty visual effect. Whip them up in minutes and they’ll be a hit for afternoon tea, after-school snacks or just because its a Monday.

Lovely for a little treat or for afternoon tea! Even without any other decoration they look great and taste wonderful. Simply a Victoria sponge mix split into two bowls and with cocoa powder added to half of it, you can make these in no time at all.

My kids loved them as a special treat when in fact there was nothing to them really. Marbling the two different cake mixtures together gives a really lovely decorative effect to these simple mini chocolate marble sponges.

These look delicious. And the fact that they are almost bite-sized means we can eat three in a row, am I right?

Look stunning! Definitely something simple I can try (And hopefully not mess up ha! ) at home. Found some more recipes I want to try to improve my baking skills. These ones are given by some old folk, and we all know their recipes and baking ideas are always the best! http://blog.gracewell.co.uk/bake-off-hits-homes/
