I’ve been kicking the idea of S’mores Bars around for a long time. Actually, years ago, I used to make some that had Golden Graham Cereal and they were really fun. Maybe that will be a post someday. But today, I wanted my Best Easy S’mores Bars to be graham crackers and chocolate and marshmallows, just like a real S’more.
If you follow me, you know I love me some oatmeal! I have a more than a few oatmeal recipes on my site! But this German Chocolate Granola is in a class by itself.
I had the idea of making Chocolate Meringue Brownie Cake for ages before I made the leap, and I think this has got to be the pinnacle of Chocolate Meringue Brownie Cakes. I hope you’ll leap with me because this cake is everything!
You might have noticed I haven’t posted anything for a while which isn’t like me. So you might think I was working up to a masterpiece of some exotic recipe. I hope I don’t disappoint because this post is just about pie crust. It is about the Best Oreo Pie Crust. But still?
I can’t explain how I’ve fallen in love with these fun popcorn mixtures. They’re just kind of magical & I just keep creating them. I think this Peeps Oreo White Chocolate Pretzel Bunny Bait Popcorn is the best so far.
Hi guys! Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s day on Saturday. I wish I would have posted these Really Bailey’s Cream Cheese Brownies before, so you all could have them for the celebration. You might want to pin them or save them or just make them anyway. With or without the hooch, they’re insanely good!
Hi everyone! Today’s post is a bit different because it’s a Guest Post for Suzanne at APugintheKitchen. If you haven’t met Suzanne, you should. She’s a fantastic cook and baker extraordinaire, involved in all kinds of good endeavors, inherently generous and kind. Of course, there’s her pug Percy who gets to make a featured appearance every now and then, too!
Merry Christmas all! I just had to share my newest “discovery” today, which now I’m seeing everywhere. My daughter introduced me to Oreo Truffles. Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought to make them. Oreos? Really? Don’t make that same mistake – get yourself some Oreos and good chocolate and make them, preferably now.
Last Christmas season, I made batch after batch of White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn Party Mix. Everyone loved it, but this year I’ve had Peppermint Bark on my mind. I don’t know why, but every time I think of making something, I think Peppermint Bark. Peppermint Bark. It’s just so festive!
“Have yourself a merry little Christmas.” That song has been echoing in my mind. A little Christmas. A simple Christmas. I don’t know if I can hold onto that zen when I visit my daughter & the”littles” over the holidays, but I’m hanging on to that feeling now.
Tis the season – for hot chocolate. A double chocolate hot chocolate! Deep. Rich. Dark. Chocolate. Real Chocolate. And Cocoa. With Frozen Whipped Cream. Yeah, you heard me right. Frozen Whipped Cream.
It might be time to take a little break from all things “fall” and food made with pumpkin and thoughts about Thanksgiving (coming up so fast!) and have a little sumpin sumpin that’s chocolate,
Here are my favorite desserts made from chocolate or containing chocolate, all tried and true. Some I’ve been making for decades, others are newer, but they’ve all gotten the thumbs up from friends and family.

It might seem like my blog has a lot to do with baking, lately. I’ve been updating my dessert menu; organizing it properly and that means posting the results. So if you’re tired of it, thanks for bearing with me – but now here’s a “Must Make” Cookie. Jaques Torres’ Chocolate Mudslide Cookies.
I came across a super easy recipe and just HAD to make it. Mainly because I’m at the folk’s house right now and they have a kazillion boxes of brownie mix in the pantry. And who doesn’t like Brownies and Banana Bread? And why not combine them?
I am a sucker for really good, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies. In my opinion, just forget the apple pie; there’s probably nothing that says “American” quite like chocolate chip cookies.
I fell off the healthy wagon early this month and made Death by Chocolate Cheesecake! Hands down the most decadent cheesecake, ever. It should carry a warning, just in case the name Death by Chocolate Cheesecake isn’t enough to clue you in. It’s a serious Chocolate Cheesecake for serious chocolate lovers, only!
Gosh I love chocolate, but caramelly goodness comes a close second. It doesn’t matter what form that caramel taste comes in, but one of my faves is English Toffee. Especially my Aunt Ginny’s English Toffee, but if I can’t have that, I’ll settle for a Heath or a Skor…you won’t have to twist my arm.
Do you ever open up a magazine and want to make everything in it? That’s how I felt about the July/August issue of Midwest Living. I recently whipped up a variation of their Vanilla Orange Cake with Apricots but it was this recipe, this Chocolate Cherry Crisp, that I couldn’t get out of my mind.
Happy Fourth of July, Everyone. When I think of the 4th, I always think of fireworks, bonfires and S’mores! I seriously couldn’t help myself when I saw S’more Cupcakes! Wow! So many recipes and they all look so good! I made a couple. And then I knew…I had to come up with MY ultimate S’more Cupcakes.
Usually you’ll find me making truffles in the winter – maybe for Christmas or New Year’s but today it’s July. I guess anytime is a good time for truffles, but beware – truffles and excess heat don’t mix. These poor babies got a little warm and then I tossed them in the fridge so they lost a bit of their gorgeous shine.
St. Paddy’s is just around the corner, so it’s time to think about partying just a little, isn’t it? When I was a kid, that meant anything green. Green ice-cream cones, cupcakes tinted green, and green beer.
For years I made Boston Cream Pie on Valentine’s Day for my kids. I loved putting little chocolate hearts around the edge of the cake and I loved that it had such a gorgeous old fashioned look with the glaze dripping down and the custard peeping out. It reminded me of those cakes that Yogi Bear stole along with the Pahnicanic baskets.
French Silk Pie! The End. Seriously, that should be all that needs to be said. Just say French Silk Pie and most people will come running! This has got to be my son’s very favorite pie of all time…and I have a hard time turning down a piece, too. Rich, chocolate, creamy and airy deliciousness.
