Even though it’s quite chilly outside, ice cream never really seems out of season. I’m still tempted by Annie’s Eats’ Malted Milk Whopper Ice Cream. The flavor of chocolate and malt is a winning combination in any form, but incorporating chunks of malted milk balls adds just enough of the familiar texture of those classic candies to take this ultra-creamy ice cream over the top. ...

Scones can be on the decadent side of things for a breakfast option because they are usually loaded with butter and cream. Fresh from the Oven‘s scones omit the butter, however, replacing it with far more decadent bittersweet chocolate in Alice Medrich’s Cream Scones with Chocolate Chunks. You can use chocolate chips in this recipe, but you will get to enjoy the chocolate to its ... Read More »

The recipe comes from Amy Sedaris’s cookbook, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, which is one of those cookbooks that is as fun to read as ... Read More »

If you didn’t see enough candy to last for a while after Halloween, you might want to take a peek at Swirl and Scramble‘s Nutmeg & Orange Praline Truffles. These truffles are loaded with orange, nutmeg and crispy praline, and are dipped in a coating of dark chocolate that gives a firm shell to the creamy centerpiece. These are a far cry from single-serving candy ... Read More »

Cacao nibs have gone from a relatively unknown ingredient to something that is regularly stocked on store shelves in the baking aisle over the last year or two. The same can be said of specialty flours, like spelt and buckwheat. Fresh from the Oven used two of these once-uncommon ingredients in a delicious looking batch of Nibby Buckwheat Cookies. The cacao nibs add some chocolate ... Read More »
