8 Homemade sweet recipes that will save you a bomb!

homemade sweet recipes

If you are anything like me you will probably spend. Good amount of your time in supermarkets grabbing own brand products so that you can cut your bill by a few measly pounds… Then spend it on a chocolate bar and coffee to get over the trauma of the supermarket run with children in tow.

I shop at Aldi, so almost allllll my stuff is own brand, and it’s *just* as good! There are certain things that you can’t buy as own brands but guess what? You CAN make them! And while we’re on the topic of cutting down costs, it is SO much cheaper to just make them yourself and they taste epic!!

Here is a around up of my favourite homemade sweet recipes to make yourself:


  1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups


2. Kinder Eggs


3. Mars Bars


4. Cadbury’s Creme eggs


5. Homemade Jaffa cakes


6. Twix bars


7. Homemade Oreos


8. Ferrero rocher

What are your favourite treats? Will you be giving this a go?

    I’m going to bookmark this and ask my daughter which one she wants to make at the weekend… I’m betting Oreo’s but I’m hoping she says Twix Bars!

    Twix bars are probably my weakness. I’d love to make some of my own. All of these look great!

    I never knew you could make any of these- I love it! I’m going to have to get started as there are a few to try out 😉

    Oh my gosh I want to make them all but I adore peanut butter cups and never thought about making them before!

    • Harriet May 17, 2016 / 7:42 pm

      They are my faves too – one of the only ones we have actually tried to make so far and insanely easy!

    I’ve found some own branded products that are better than branded ones, nothing wrong with saving a bit of money. I need to try the Kinder Eggs, Jaffa Cakes and Twix recipes… Well I need to make my sister make them as shes the baker in our house

    Oh my goodness, these look absolutely epic!

    Those jaffa cake bites look delicious, How do you stop at just one though?

    Thanks for sharing

      I don’t …. maybe thats why my diet is never truly successful!?

    This is truly a scrumptious haven of chocolate, I love Kinder Egg so I would be interested to see what my own would taste like!

  14. Avatar May 16, 2016 / 7:52 pm

    Nothing beats home made treats and all these look super delicious.

    Oh I need to try these recipes out now, we have tried making jaffa cakes before, but wasn’t quite the same, but we made a giant one so will try the individual ones and see how they go x

  25. Avatar May 16, 2016 / 9:32 am

    Oh my word these all look amazing – I have only one issue – which to make first! I love twix bars so I would have to go for those. Though the kinder eggs look incredible tempting too! yum!

  26. Avatar May 16, 2016 / 8:35 am

    Wow that’s not helping the old diet, they look so tasty and easy to make which always helps me!

    • Harriet May 16, 2016 / 9:29 am

      Oops! At least it will be yummy!

  27. Avatar May 16, 2016 / 12:44 am

    This post could have been written just for me! I love the satisfaction of making something that we previously shop bought – Those homemade ferrero rocher could be very addictive!

    • Harriet May 16, 2016 / 9:30 am

      I think they could be too!

  28. Avatar May 15, 2016 / 6:26 pm

    Those cream eggs look so yummy! Making them on a stick is such a good idea, I assumed you would have to inject the white mixture into the centre or something complicated like that xD
