A visit to the Ethel M Chocolate Factory

Ethel M Hallway

It’s not Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, but until they open their doors, the Ethel M Chocolate Factory is more than good enough for me. Ethel M’s is located in Henderson, Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas. The building is easy to find, with a few signs to help guide you into the parking lot. It’s a lot bigger than it looks from the outside, but ... Read More »

Homemade Fudgsicles

Homemade Fudgsicles

Fudgsicles were one of my favorite summertime treats as a child. They are chocolate popsicles, with a great chocolate flavor to them. I’ve seen lots of recipes for Fudgsicles over the years and have noticed that, in spite of their names, none of them are really quite like the original Fudgsicles. Oh, they’re all very chocolaty, but many recipes call for lots of cream or ... Read More »

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

Melt in your mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

There are all kinds of chocolate cookies out there. Thick cookies, thin cookies, crispy cookies and chewy cookies. I like them all, but every once in a while I come across a chocolate cookie that I like just a little bit more than the others and these Melt-in-Your Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies definitely fall into that category. These cookies are alittle bit unassuming on their ... Read More »

Pomegranate, Chocolate and Pecan Brownie Cookies

Pomegranate, Chocolate and Pecan Brownie Cookies

Fresh pomegranate seeds (actually called arils) are a little too moist to do well in a batch of cookies. Dried pomegranate seeds are a little bit too dry and crunchy. Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranate seeds, however, seem to be just right. The dark chocolate brings out some of the fruity notes of the dried pomegranate flesh, while it also serves to temper the crunch of ... Read More »

Black and White Brownie Bars

Black and White Chocolate Bars

This is definitely a recipe for chocolate lovers. Black and White Brownie Bars are brownie-like cookie bars that are packed with both semisweet and white chocolate, giving them a beautiful black and white look and a even better flavor. I like them because they make an impact when they’re put out on the dessert tray, of course, but I also like the way that the ... Read More »

S’mores Bread Pudding

S'mores Bread Pudding

S’mores are – and probably always will be – a favorite summertime treat of mine. And I doubt that I will ever tire of coming up with creative new ways to combine s’more ingredients into new dishes. This time around, I looked at my bag of marshmallows, my package of Hershey’s bars (the classic chocolate, although other bars can be used) and a box of ... Read More »

Churros con Chocolate

Churros frying

In Madrid, there is one dessert place that is a must-visit destination. That is Chocolateria San Gines. This chocolate shop has one specialty and that is Churros con Chocolate. The chocolate is thick, rich and pudding-like, and the churros are light and crisp. The combination is pretty much the only thing on the menu and the waiters tend to assume that this is what you ...

Decorative Chocolate Bunnies

Making Decorative Chocolate Bunnies

When I baked up my Chocolate Coconut Easter Cupcakes and topped them with green coconut grass, I wanted to add a little decorative touch to finish them off. One option that I’ve used in the past is little chocolate candy Easter eggs. Premade eggs are easy to find and I particularly like the look of light pastel eggs with little dark speckles on them. This ... Read More »
