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 Tapioca Pudding #Choctoberfest

I never made tapioca pudding before, but my husband, Jim, likes it, so I decided to give it a try. I bought a box of quick cooking tapioca and checked out the recipe on the box.

Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream (Dairy Free) #Choctoberfest

This post is sponsored by Barlean’s. All opinions are my own. A few years ago, I made an easy no-churn chocolate ice cream using Barlean’s chocolate silk greens.

Angelic Chocolate Sponge Cake #Choctoberfest

Sometimes things don’t turn out as expected. But it’s not always a bad thing. That’s exactly what happened when I was making this cake the other day. I planned and the universe laughed. It was my first free Saturday in several weeks. I’m usually out and about working for the local winery at a wine festival on […]

Chocolate Pumpkin Bread #Choctoberfest

My mom’s pumpkin bread recipe is the best in the world. The best, no competition. For #Choctoberfest, I wanted to make a chocolate version, filled with delicious cocoa. This year, Rodelle sent me some cocoa powder to taste-test, and although I am under no obligation to use it in a recipe post here on my […]

We just love quick and easy semi-homemade recipes that look like they’ve taken you a long time but are really very easy.
