Jarrah Hot Chocolate

I think it’s fairly obvious I have a huge sweet tooth, and always feel the desire to finish a meal off with something sweet.

mini-choc-donuts

I thought I’d try and make a “healthier” version by baking them in the oven instead of deep frying these little beauties, however my decision to coat them in a decadent dark chocolate ganache probably negated that.
