Chocolate M&Ms Monster Cookies #Choctoberfest

#Choctoberfest is a time for chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Earlier this month, my mother came to my home so we could test out some new chocolate recipes. I was excited when she brought chocolate cookie dough with M&Ms, since M&M cookies are one of my favorites. My mother first saw this recipe from The […]

My KitchenAid stand mixer hasn’t been getting enough use lately! If it’s going to take up that much counter space, it needs to pull a little more weight around here. So, I decided to compile a list of delicious chocolate recipes that use a stand mixer (thanks to some help from a few blogger friends). […]

Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies #Choctobefest

Whoopie pies are a treat our family has made and enjoyed way before they became a ‘thing’ a few years ago. Today you can find recipes for so many flavors! My cousin recently requested chocolate chip whoopie pies, because they are her favorite flavor. However I could not find a true whoopie pie recipe anywhere […]

Peanut Butter Pumpkins #Choctoberfest

Peanut butter eggs are one of my favorite Easter treats, but I seriously struggle to get a nice, pretty chocolate coating on the outside. They always turnout into such a mess for me no matter how careful I try to be.┬áSo when I found these pumpkin jack-o-lateen silicon molds last fall, a lightbulb went off […]

Chocolate-Dipped Homemade Marshmallows #Choctoberfest

I’ve been wanting to try making homemade marshmallows for a few years now, but I always thought it would be too hard. Okay, maybe not hard, but sticky. I imagined that homemade marshmallows would be finicky about setting up. I imagined they would deflate after a few hours. I imagined my entire kitchen covered in […]

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies #Choctoberfest

It’s #Choctoberfest this week, which means it is a perfect time for a cookie with now one but two different types of chocolate. Hershey’s recently posted a “design your own” cookie recipe, so I decided to make something the whole family would love by using white chocolate peanut butter cups. My husband and daughter Jess […]

Mocha Latte Cupcakes

If you like a dense, rich cupcake with a buttery coffee-flavored frosting, this recipe is for you! I started developing this cupcake recipe back when #Choctoberfest was going on, but got too busy to finish finessing it. My husband’s office really enjoys when I develop new recipes! These cupcakes have a strong chocolate flavor and […]

Chocolate Orange Overnight Oats (Vegan-Friendly!) #Choctoberfest

I have to admit, that I’m usually not an overnight oats or oatmeal person. But if it’s chocolate-flavored, I’m on board! Plus, I love the combination of chocolate and orange, as is evident by all the other chocolate and orange flavored recipes on this blog, including Orange Chocolate Chip Bread, Chocolate Orange Cookies, and Mini […]

S’mores Ice Cream #Choctoberfest

I have been itching to use my ice cream maker more often. I have the KitchenAid attachment, but it is usually stored in my chest freezer, which is out in my storage shed. You know how it is: out of sight, out of mind. But the other day, we were driving home from running errands […]

Golden Chocolate Blossom Cookies #Choctoberfest

Do not adjust your screen color… those Hershey kisses really are orange. They are the “caramel pretzel” variety. I just happened to find the caramel pretzel kisses at a local grocery store and thought they would be a wonderful addition to the chocolate cookie for this year’s #Choctoberfest! Because these kisses are caramel instead of […]
