3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

With Smoked Cream

Posted on April 05, 2017
It happened swiftly, shortly after dinner one night; the craving for chocolate struck like lightning. We didn’t really have anything for dessert to stave off this craving, just a bunch of seemingly random ingredients. Or were they? I managed to whip up this 3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse With Smoked Cream in about 15 minutes (pun intended). The hardest part was waiting for it to set in the fridge before eating.

Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Strong, warm, gooey, melty and chocolaty

Posted on January 17, 2017

Coffee & Caramel Brownies happened because I needed chocolate. You don’t understand. It’s not that I have a craving. It’s more like a requirement. At that moment in time, I required strong, warm, gooey, melty chocolate. So I decided to make brownies. 

Coffee brings out the best in chocolate 9 times out of 10, so obviously, I had to add some espresso powder to jazz things up a bit. Actually, I also added some plain greek yogurt to give these brownies even more oomph too. Then, to top everything off, I capped these brownies with a heaping helping of caramel sauce. The result? Delicious, strong, warm, gooey, melty chocolate brownies!

Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup

Posted on January 11, 2017
The best thing about being an adult is that you can eat whatever you want for dinner. The other night, neither of us felt like eating a meal, meat and potatoes, pasta, nothing at all sounded good. You know what did though? Apple Crumble with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup. Fresh apples, sweet maple syrup with spicy ginger, and cinnamon, and top it all off with fresh ice cream for a delicious meal… I mean dessert!

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

A Sweet Christmassy Treat

Posted on December 08, 2016
The idea for White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart came about shortly after making the  Chocolate & Espresso Tart. I was writing the recipe to share, and suddenly it hit me. What if I used white chocolate?! From there the recipe evolved as I considered what would taste great with the white chocolate. Initially, I had a vision of a beautiful white tart with swirls of green and crumbles of peppermint on top. Things went a little sideways when I accidentally overheated the white chocolate and it bound. (That means that chocolate went from this smooth and creamy mixture to a hard and grainy blob.) I was able to fix it a little, but the liquid separated out. To rescue this, I topped the whole thing with a layer of dark chocolate ganache. Feel free to make this look however you like, though. Swirl the white, dark, and mint chocolate together, or layer them all separately. It’s up to you and how you feel this dessert should look.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake

With Reese Peanut Butter Cups

Posted on November 16, 2016
After another quiet Halloween, we ended up with a ton of chocolaty treats. What better way to use up leftover candy than to make a Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake With Reese Peanut Butter Cups. This dense and rich cake is bracketed by light and fluffy layers of peanut butter icing, topped with chopped peanut butter cups and drizzled with silky ganache. This dessert was a little too much after a big turkey dinner, but you’ve got to go big when it comes to dessert!

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Decadent, rich, and the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

Posted on November 02, 2016
I made this Chocolate & Espresso Tart as part of a menu for some VIP’s. It seemed like the perfect finish to an already rich meal, consisting of an autumn salad and Duck Pizza. I had a little difficulty with the texture of the chocolate. So, remember when you make your own, to be careful when melting the chocolate, not to heat it too hot, too fast. Strange things happen to chocolate when it’s heated too fast. My chocolate went sort of sticky and doughy, but it can sometimes go grainy, or clumpy too. The secret to a silky and beautiful tart is patience when you melt the chocolate.

I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of the whole chocolate and coffee combo. With National Dessert Day coming up, I just had to make a dessert befitting the occasion. Mocha Cupcakes with Smoked Coffee & Toffee are a perfectly portable dessert that even the non-coffee lovers will enjoy. (I say this while looking pointedly at a few people, you know who you are…) Topped with even more chocolate, toffee bits, and coffee-chocolate ganache, who wouldn’t go nuts for these Mocha Cupcakes?

Following National Eat a Peach Day is National Peach Pie Day on August 24th. You won't be able to resist this Peach Pie with a Malibu Twist! Sweet peaches are given a bit of a boozy boost with a splash of Malibu Rum original -with coconut, or try the banana flavored one. You will eat at least 3.14 slices before you ever consider stopping. Get it? It's a pi joke! Anyway, this round dessert will find a place of honor on your make-again list for sure!
