For some years now, adventurous cooks and sweet-toothed gourmands have been experimenting with their favourite go-to chocolates and sweets and showcasing the results on Pinterest. These talented bloggers, chefs and out-and-out foodies love nothing better than to take a Ferrero Rocher or Curly Wurly bar and turn it into some kind of different and even more delicious dessert or cake creation.

Nutella, for example, is added to flaky pastry to make gorgeous little croissant-shaped crescents, while a Galaxy chocolate bar is merged with marshmallows to make the king of all brilliant S'mores bars.

Being true chocolate lovers here at Stylist HQ, we're all in favour of this blossoming trend. Here are some of our favourite creations of the internet that use popular types of chocolate bars, biscuits and truffle brands as their base. Enjoy re-creating your own versions, using the recipes below.
