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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chocolate Apple Pie #Choctoberfest

It is the perfect time of year to load up on apples… and this week is also #Choctoberfest, which means that it is also the perfect time of year to load up on chocolate. So… why not a recipe that combines both? My version of Chocolate Apple Pie is based on a recipe from from […]

Thank goodness they did, because I had never heard of them before, and I was missing out! I received their White Gold coffee, which has a light, nutty flavor and a creamy texture. I’m usually […]

Easy Mini Chocolate Cream Tarts #Choctoberfest

I love happy accidents! The last time I made cupcakes, I tried out a delicious buttercream recipe (with added chocolate)… but it ended up making almost double what I actually needed to frost my cupcakes. I hate wasting anything, but I didn’t feel like mixing up another batch of cupcakes. So instead, I added some […]

Cocoa-Rubbed Ribeye with Whiskey Bacon Sauce #Choctoberfest

My fiance, Jeffrey, doesn’t eat beef often, but when he does, he almost always wants a ribeye steak. He was a bit skeptical when I told him that I was looking for a way to cook his favorite steak with chocolate for #Choctoberfest, but all doubts were forgotten when he ate his first bite of […]

Jar Brownies (A Treat And A Gift!) #Choctoberfest

Brownies are such a common, but absolutely loved chocolate treat. Boxed mixes are so handy and easy, but this is my go to recipe when I want to made 100% homemade brownies! They’re have more of a cakey consistency than a gooey one, which I personally prefer. Our family has had this recipe in our recipe books so long […]
