Chocolate

Who can resist the rich smoothness of Chocolate. Our recipes include: Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Cake, Gluten Free Chocolate Dessert, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Sauce, and anything other decadent Chocolate Dessert you can think of! I used to dream in chocolate, eating everything that came my way. Now I cook with chocolate, eating everything I make! I didn’t always like dark chocolate but as my palate has refined I prefer the richer taste and depth of flavor it has to offer over milk chocolate. Add in some hot spices to your next chocolate recipe for a kick to something classic you make.

Puffy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Puffy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (1) Peanut Butter and Chocolate belong together. The perfect pairing. The ideal match. Think bread & butter, toast & jam, tea & honey, PB & J…you get the picture. I am always baking up easy cookie recipes for my DH. It is his go to sweet snack at home. He loves warm cookies and an ice cold beer. Yeah, definitely different, but I still love him! Every now and then he gets on this kick about losing weight, so no more cookies. Bummer, I actually enjoy baking him cookies. So I decided to create some mini cookies. Same thing but the size is thoroughly deceiving. You think you are being ‘good’ by eating smaller cookies only to never realize you ate double the amount in regular size (insert evil laugh). Needless to say, he loved them!

Delicious Rating: I have baked and eaten a lot of peanut butter cookies in my time but these take first place. They have a nicely crisp bottom and puff up with a full warm delicious middle. The mini chocolate chips are a perfect pairing for these mini cookies. They are so addictive though because they are small. If you want bigger cookies, go for it, just adjust baking times accordingly. This cookie dough also freezes perfectly. Check out the photo guide for the easy instructions.

Triple Chocolate Fudge

Triple Chocolate Fudge (2)Chocolate. Who can resist this rich creamy delectable goodness? A melt -in-your-mouth decadent moment of pure indulgence…(shivers) That moment, that perfect moment when chocolate comes into contact with your taste buds and everything in the world stops, just for a moment, but it is in that moment that you know you cannot live without chocolate!

Okay, I will stop with all the dramatics! I love chocolate, more so in the last few years. If you are a chocolate lover than this recipe is definitely for you. Three distinct chocolates come together in perfect harmony in this easy fudge recipe. I used a 100% unsweetened chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and White Chocolate. None of them compete or overpower, rather they really do harmonize together all the while standing on their own.

Delicious Rating: Yummy – Delicious- Addictive -So Good! This easy recipe is perfect for pairing with the late night glass of wine, a sweet snack during the day, or for company and friends. I have had fudge that I do not care for but this recipe doesn’t taste ‘fake’ or ‘processed’. It is rich, so give it a try and tell me how you prefer in your chocolate fudge!

Pinwheel Cookies

Pinwheel Cookies

No matter how unspectacular a cookie tastes, the way it looks will make it spectacular. Case and point: Pinwheel Cookies. Don’t get me wrong, these cookies are delicious. Simple vanilla and chocolate butter cookies. But there are no bells and whistles with these cookies. What makes them great is the presentation, the way they look. Pinwheels. I have made these on numerous occasions and each time everyone is wowed, I mean, they can’t believe they are eating a homemade pinwheel cookie. “You baked these at home?” If I would have just baked up simple vanilla cookies or chocolate cookies nobody would have asked me that. But make a cool looking design and wham! You got some spectacular cookies. These cookies are made from an easy recipe and are just as easy to assemble.

Delicious Rating: These are delicious butter cookies. My chocolate was perfectly balanced with the vanilla cookie but held its own as well. The cookies will have a firm bottom when baked but the insides are soft and almost, just almost, cakey cookie. But not really. I hope that makes sense!

Giant Hostess Cupcake Cake

When we used to cross the border into Texas, we almost always went to this little gas station stop outside of the border town that had a Wendy’s and Dairy Queen. We would buy so much junk at that gas station, I think the workers thought we were going into Mexico. But we had been out for so many months we needed a good ol’ junk food fix. One thing that was for sure was that my DH would buy some Hostess chocolate cupcakes. He just loves those things and inhales them in two seconds! So when we were going on a ‘junk food dry spell’ down here in Costa Rica, I decided to make some Hostess Cupcakes but bigger…and better. So a Giant Hostess Cupcake Cake was born. Imagine the chocolate cupcake times a lot…yeah, it was pretty great.

Delicious Rating: Wow, cake is just perfect Hostess cupcake consistency. I love the chocolate ganache too. Once it firms up it really looks and tastes amazing. The marshmallow filling was spot on too, especially fresh. Unfortunately, we don’t have temperature control in the house so once it warmed up just a little the consistency started to change but it still was good and worked out perfect. This chocolate layer cake is a fun and easy recipe. It is great for parties or special occasions that require a giant cupcake cake. It put a huge smile on DH’s face once I cut into it. He wasn’t expecting that middle filling at all. Cake surprises are so much fun!
