Paleo Chocolate Coconut Bars

I’m sure all you parents know the feeling: there’s always that one kid who pretty much doesn’t like anything you make. Not that you’re really that bad of a cook or baker, they’re just so picky! That was my second daughter. Pickiness and sensory processing issues go hand in hand, and she was so hard to feed for the longest …

DISNEYLAND’S CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICH

We were just in Disneyland a few months ago eating these delicious chocolate peanut butter sandwiches!  No bread involved here!  It’s a graham cracker coated in chocolate, a peanut butter filling on top, then the whole cracker dipped in milk chocolate.  When you sink your teeth into that first bite it is absolutely amazing!  And another great thing about this …

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CUP MUG CAKE

I had the idea to make this cake about a month ago after buying a mixed bag of dark chocolate candies, including dark chocolate peanut butter cups. I even set aside a few of them to make this cake, in case someone “accidentally” finished them all. And then I promptly forgot all about the cake and the peanut butter cups …

Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons – What a Difference an “O” Makes

I’ve always found it amusing that macaroons, which are one of the easiest cookies ever, has the same name, give or take an “o,” as the famously difficult macaron.  Even though they have the same origin, which the Italian word maccarone (also where we get macaroni), they couldn’t be more different in texture, as well as the skill they require. …

Chocolate Granola – Take That, Count Chocula!

I know chocolate granola sort of sounds like candy, but introducing cocoa into the mix not only makes it delicious, it also actually makes it better for you! Possibly. No one is really sure. The point is this really tastes great, and would make a wonderful treat for the chocolate lover, mother or otherwise, in your life. I showed amazing …
