Peanut Butter Brookies

I layered the cookie dough and the brownie batter in a pan, baked, and cut them into squares. They were really fun to give away to my peanut butter loving brother.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Not that there’s anything wrong with a plain old, ordinary peanut butter cookies or anything, but sometimes it’s fun to just take them to the next level. Know what I mean?

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I was worried that Chocolate Sugar Cookies would be too boring and cliche, so I spiced them up with some adorable holiday decorations.

Pumpkin Buttermilk Donuts

Donuts mean Halloween to me. Pumpkin, donuts, Halloween, chocolate milk, they all go together, right?

Chocolate Cheesecake

To make this cheesecake, I started with my great-grandfather’s recipe. We knew him as Grandpa Chuck, but when he was cooking, he preferred Chowhound Charlie, making the official title of this recipe “Chowhound Charlie’s New York Cheesecake.”

Dark Chocolate Coconut Cookies

I new the dark cocoa powder would be transforming itself into cookies. Chewy cookies. Heavenly chewy dark chocolate cookies with coconut. Just the thought of it brings a smile to the face.

Grandma’s Chocolate Cake

The reason Robb loves this cake, beyond the fond childhood memories, is that it is not too rich. It actually has quite a mild chocolate flavor, and a perfectly amazing dense and moist texture.

Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies

When I mentioned to Carla that I needed a killer brownie recipe for the upcoming family reunion brownie bake-off for eternal fame and glory, she suggested I try her Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies.

Scotcheroos

Can I just describe to you why this is arguably the best krispie treat ever? The biggest reason, besides the obvious heavenly peanut butter and chocolate combination, is corn syrup.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

I was only too happy to give Tank the flavor combination he asked for. And, truth be told, I was kind of excited to sample one myself! Because chocolate and peanut butter are amazing.

Macadamia Crusted Chocolate Cookies

I asked Blue Skies what her favorite flavors are, and she told me she doesn’t like nuts, except macadamia nuts. If you were going to pick one nut to love, doesn’t it make sense to choose one that is as fantastic as macadamias?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Muddy Buddies

I can tell you one thing, I was not not NOT going to use the oven. Or the stove. I was even apprehensive about using the air popper to make popcorn. So, we ate muddy buddies. Hooray!

Chocolate Cherry Coke Cake in a Jar – Share a Coke

I decided to share Coke with my family. We each put two tablespoons of Coke in our jar cakes, and when they were done baking, we had a quiet little moment at the picnic table in the shade.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

I actually regret teaching my kids this recipe, because now every other time I come in the kitchen, I find empty cocoa packets on the counter, a dirty blender in the sink, and empty whipped cream can, and most importantly, no frozen hot chocolate for me.

Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites

Dipping things in chocolate is all the rage. It’s like the trend that never goes out of style, because it’s always awesome.
