White Chocolate Truffles

White Chocolate Truffles

Milk and dark chocolate truffles are equally common in the candy aisle or in the display case of your favorite chocolatier. White chocolate doesn’t pop up as often but makes an equally delicious choice for a truffle because it starts out with a deliciously creamy flavor from the get go. Chocolate truffles are easy to make at home and only require a few simple ingredients, ... Read More »

Chocolate Truffle-Filled Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Chocolate Truffle-Filled Peanut Butter Cups

These cookies are like a peanut butter cup, but inside out and in cookie form. I realize that this actually makes them quite different from the peanut butter cups that you can buy in the candy aisle at the local grocery store (and the homemade version!), but the flavors are similar and these cookies have a cute peanut butter cup shape to them.

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Chocolate and mint is a good combination, with the dark notes of the cocoa balanced out with the bright flavor of the mint. I didn’t realize what a good combination brownies and mint were until I made Peppermint Cookies n’ Cream Brownies, a brownie recipe that incorporates peppermint Oreo-type cookies, and realized that it is possible to pack a lot of both chocolate and peppermint ...
