This week I was invited to take part in a challenge set by Russell Hobbs to try out their new Creations Kitchen Machine. Russell Hobbs are hosting a champagne and cake party tonight in London to launch their new range of Creations food prep products. My challenge was to make something to the theme of a ‘Girls’ Night In’ using the new machine and the main ingredient had to be chocolate. Since English cherries are now at their best and in season, I decided to combine chocolate and cherries into these tasty morsels. Not quite a cupcake (you’ll notice the distinct lack of piled high buttercream) just an extra drizzle of chocolate with a fresh cherry compote. I think these would be a very welcome addition to a Girls’ Night In! Good luck to the other bloggers taking part tonight in the bake off and thank you to Russell Hobbs for sending me the Creations Kitchen Machine to try at home. We certainly had fun trying out the stand mixer and it seemed to enjoy mixing and making these chocolate and cherry bites!
Please note: this post is not a review of the product nor is it an endorsement. I am still testing and trying it out and would usually give a product a longer testing run before posting my opinions about it. The Creations Kitchen Machine will be available from 21st July 2012 in Argos and has an RRP of £199. You can follow Russell HobbsUK on Twitter to keep up with the party tonight!
