Homemade Fudge Rounds

I don’t know about you, but I grew up eating these! My mom would pack them in my lunch for our “treat”. I bet she knew that I ate it first:) I don’t think I’ve had them since high school, but either way I knew I was up for the challenge to recreate them when I saw them on Confessions …

Best Ever Chocolate Frosting

Now personally, I’ve never found a homemade chocolate frosting I love. Some are good here and there, but I haven’t found the perfect one…till today. And you know it’s gotta be good because it comes from our friends over at Our Best Bites. This is the definition of what a chocolate frosting should be. Deep, dark chocolate flavor and smooth, …

When I was younger it was my candy bar of choice…every time. I don’t know how you can go wrong with chocolate and caramel. So that’s why I thought it was …

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

I used to be a cupcake hater.  Then I met Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes.  We’ve been spending a lot of time together lately, getting to know one another.  It’s a pretty intense relationship – two batches in just four days.  I’m trying to control myself, but it’s hard – such a pretty face, and a heart of pure raspberry filling. Sigh. …

Congo Bars

I feel a bit guilty posting this recipe.  It’s been around my mother’s family for as long as I can remember and I don’t want anybody thinking I created or discovered it.  Grandma Dickson gets all the credit for that.  (I did double the chocolate though, and I will take full credit for that.)  I feel guilty because I am …

Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m not doing so well with my  New Year’s resolutions. Oh, I’m doing okay with # 2 – eating chocolate every day.  But that wasn’t so much a resolution as it was a declaration. Resolution # 5 (cook every recipe in Deborah Madison’s “Vegetarian Suppers” cookbook) came to a grinding halt last week when I served the beet ragu with twice baked goat …
