Hot Cocoa Cookies #Choctoberfest

I think this recipe is the most chocolatey recipe of all time! It has chocolate pudding mix, hot cocoa mix, cocoa powder, white chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips. Chocolate to the max!!! So, I knew I had to try it for #Choctoberfest this year. To make this cookie even better, it uses brown sugar […]

Spiced Caramel Chocolate Bark #Choctoberfest

Summer weather seemed to drag on forever this year, but it is finally fall. That took forever, didn’t it? I don’t know about you, but was over the super hot and humid days, so I’m glad we’re now in the 50s and 60s. (Though I will say… it can stay in this temperature range. I […]

Happy #Choctoberfest, y’all! Earlier today, I posted a fun Day of the Dead cupcake cake using chocolate cinnamon cupcakes, and I have a second cupcake recipe for you with this Tropica Chocolate Mermaid Cupcake recipe. It’s National Cupcake Day, after all! I knew I wanted to do something with a mermaid theme that is more […]

Triple Chocolate Truffles #Choctoberfest

I work at Benigna’s Creek Winery and we have a wine and truffles event in February. It’s always really special to make homemade candies. The truffle recipe we use, however, is very labor intensive. I saw a truffle recipe on Pioneer Woman that looked a lot easier, so I decided to try a version for […]

Easy Chocolate Chip Mini Sticky Buns #Choctoberfest

Thank you to Barlean’s for sponsoring this recipe! When I was in college, I was always the one to bring sweet treats to movie nights and birthdays. Brownies were my go to, but my mini sticky buns were the most requested! I’ve wanted to share this recipe for some time. Since it’s #Choctoberfest this week, […]

Easy S’mores Cookies + 12 S’mores Inspired Recipes #Choctoberfest

Who doesn’t loves s’mores? Growing up, I was part of the Girl Scouts and we had s’mores at every event during the summer. So, when I saw that Hershey’s now makes s’mores baking pieces, I couldn’t resist. Into the cart they went! To make these cookies… just follow the recipe on the bag! Usually, we […]

Chocolate Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies #Choctoberfest

I’m a huge fan of Litte Debbie Oatmeal Pies. But let’s be honest… everything is better with chocolate! So, this year for #Choctoberfest, I knew I wanted to make a chocolate version of oatmeal cookies, filled with a buttery, creamy, sweet frosting center. Oh, by the way… it’s #Choctoberfest starting today! What’s #Choctoberfest, you might […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cookies

My mom makes the BEST chocolate peanut butter cake. The cake itself is chocolate, but then she tops it with peanut butter icing…. omg, SO GOOD y’all. And I’m not usually a big cake person. When Better Body Foods sent me some PBfit powdered peanut butter to try, I immediately thought about that cake. I […]

Chocolate Covered Shortbread Hearts #FoodBloggerLove

Back at Christmas Allison gave me a HUGE recipe book with over 400 recipes for cookies, brownies, biscuits, and other desserts. I’ve been paging through it marking recipes to test and experiment with for a while now. With Valentine’s Day coming it, I thought that this would be the perfect time to test one I […]

Chocolate Sweet Potato Mini Cakes #FoodBloggerLove

Today is #FoodBloggerLove, which is a day where a group of my food blogger friends and I share the love with some awesome Valentine’s Day themed recipes! I actually love Valentine’s Day. Well, love is perhaps a strong word, but I don’t have the negative reaction that some people have to the holiday. I think […]

Chocolate Coconut Oil Cookies

I’m having a bit of a love affair with cocoa lately… Back in October, Rodelle was a blog sponsor here on The PinterTest Kitchen for #Choctoberfest, and they sent us some high-quality Dutch processed baking cocoa to test out. Oh mama, was that stuff good! This post is not sponsored by Rodelle in any way… […]

Chocolate Orange Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle

I love the flavors of chocolate and orange together, especially around the holidays. It always makes me think of Terry’s chocolate oranges (YUM). I always thought chocolate and orange was a weird combination, but my dad liked the chocolate oranges. One time, I tried a slice and OH MAMA I was hooked ever since! I […]

Nutty Florentine Cookies (Gluten-Free) #FBLCookieExchange

I love this time of year. When I was a kid, I can remember being SO excited about Christmas break. I was a pretty nerdy kid and liked learning, so it wasn’t necessarily that I didn’t want to go to school. I just was always super excited for Christmas. I love seeing people’s faces when […]
