Chocolate Dipped Cream Cheese Mints

I figured it would be a good time to revisit the cream cheese mints. There’s something about the mint flavor that is so refreshing, don’t you think? And, I made them green, because it’s March.

Peppermint Bark Brownies

Peppermint and I have some things in common, namely, that we are both close personal friends with chocolate, and we’re both tired of cherries and strawberries monopolizing the Valentines Day dessert scene.

Red Velvet Sandwich Heart Cookies

I already know this Valentines Day is going to be a good one, because I get to celebrate it with my blog buds! We’re back!

Dark Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Today the sun came out, I woke up in a good mood, and it was time to bake something fun… just for fun. I found some cream cheese in the fridge just begging to be baked with, and I figured my chocolate cake would taste amazing with a little cheesecake on top.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

The thing is, sometimes a girl just needs a chocolate cookie, and it can’t wait until I’ve dug out the holiday music and put the Christmas centerpiece on the table. Luckily, this recipe is so quick and easy, you don’t have to wait.

Peppermint Cream Cheese Thumbprints

I’ve wanted to make these cute peppermint cookies for some time now. I bet these would be fantastic with a cup of dark chocolate cocoa. I love the peppermint hot chocolate at Starbucks, by the way, speaking of peppermint and chocolate and things I love.

Pumpkin Spice Nanaimo Bars

Let’s not forget that it is now November. I have no idea where this year went, and I can’t decide whether I’m happy or sad to have it behind me. But that is beside the point. The point is, it’s fall, and I needed some fall flavors in these bars.

Chocolate Banana Bread

I recently found myself saddled with ripe bananas, when the project I had intended to use them for fell through. The memory of this chocolate banana bread discussion came flooding back to me. And if I’m being completely honest, the thought of how this bread would look on this cutting board is the real reason I ended up making it.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Muddy Buddies

Sometimes, on Halloween, a mom needs 10 minutes to herself, so she doesn’t lose her cool. We all know what that looks like, and it ain’t pretty. It might be the scariest part of Halloween, actually.

German Chocolate Skillet Cake

My awesome brother gave me a brand new 12-inch skillet as a gift recently. I was so excited to get it seasoned and start using it. I couldn’t decide what to make in it first!

Pretzel Toffee

Toffee is one of my favorite candies. Butter + Sugar… what’s not to love? I wanted to add a little salt to my sweet (salty + sweet is the best flavor combo) so I poured my toffee over pretzels. Pretzels go great with basically everything, if you ask me.

Chocolate Pudding (egg-free) {Appreciation Post}

This simple chocolate pudding is a recipe I learned from Robb’s family. He loves foods that are basic, simple, uncomplicated. This pudding is one of his favorites, and we eat it pretty regularly. Chocolate pudding tastes just like love.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

This zucchini is humongous. It’s the size of a small child. It’s as big as my leg. It’s the biggest zucchini I’ve ever seen in my life. And it’s sitting on my kitchen counter.

Banana Bread Cookies

Two ripe bananas sat on the counter, like a challenge. “What will you make of us?” they screamed at me. And this is a cookie blog, and it’s been a while since we had a good creative cookie on here. Decision made.
