Spicy Chocolate Mousse Ice Cream #Choctoberfest

I love mousse. I love ice cream. So recently, I thought that the two could combine to create a creamy, airy frozen dessert perfect for #Choctoberfest. I began to experiment with recipes… and then… Enter Forte Chocolates… As one of our awesome sponsors for #Choctoberfest 2018, Forte Chocolates sent me some delicious chocolate flavors to […]

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 […]

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, […]

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!

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. The box happened to mention a chocolate version of tapioca pudding – perfect for our chocolate-themed #Choctoberfest week. Actually, […]

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. This year, when Barlean’s agreed to sponsor #Choctoberfest again, I knew I wanted to make a churned ice cream using the new ice cream maker attachment I […]

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 […]

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 […]

White Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Cups #Choctoberfest

We just love quick and easy semi-homemade recipes that look like they’ve taken you a long time but are really very easy. This recipe only has four ingredients, and you probably have three of them in your pantry already. All you need is some fresh raspberries. I made these brownie cups for Allison’s bachelorette party […]
