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 »

Chocolate Pomegranate Bundt Cake

Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants, which means that there are a lot of potential health benefits packed into each fruit. Pomegranates are a bit difficult to eat, since each little seed – although tasty – doesn’t have a lot of juice or flesh surrounding it, so it takes quite a while to consume one. This is where pomegranate juice comes in, making it easy to ... Read More »

Irish Cream Brownies

Irish Cream Brownies

When liquours are included in baked goods, the flavor doesn’t always make it through to the finished product. This definitely isn’t the case for these boozy Irish Cream Brownies. There is quite a bit of Irish Cream mixed right into the brownie batter, infusing it with flavor. There is also some in the glaze that finishes these off, adding yet another little kick to these ...

Deep Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Mousse Heart

Deep Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Mousse Heart

When I saw Wilton’s Tasty Fill Heart Cake Set, I knew that I wanted to try making one of the lovely heart-centered cakes myself. A cake with a heart-shaped center is perfect Valentine’s Day. After I picked up the cake pan set, all I needed to do was decide what flavor cake I wanted to make. I decided to work backwards and, knowing that I ... Read More »

Two Bite Chocolate Cream Pies

Two Bite Chocolate Cream Pies

While there is nothing like a full-sized cake or pie, there is something very appealing about little desserts. They’re cute – a shrunken down version of their full-sized cousins – and can pack in a lot of flavor. Best of all, you can usually eat more than one without feeling guilty. So I’m easily tempted by miniature versions of desserts, and when I saw a ... Read More »
