These mini cupcakes are just adorable!  They are topped with a chocolate chip cream cheese layer and are absolutely delicious.  These black bottom cupcakes are rich and decadent for such a little sweet.  This recipe only takes about an hour, and I highly recommend you try it if you like chocolate.  The recipe makes about 4 1/2 dozen, so there will be plenty to go around if you have the urge to share, and they freeze great (if you don't eat them all within the first day as they are really addicting).  Try these delightful black bottom mini cupcakes, and you will have a perfect fix for any chocolate cravings!

Bon Appetit!

Raspberry and chocolate are a perfect marriage of flavors.  There is something about the sweetness of the berries and the richness of the chocolate that gets our taste buds salivating.  I found this rich chocolate dessert recipe on a Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar.  It is a very easy pie to make, and my family absolutely loved it.  With only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes of your time, you will have a beautiful and delicious pie!  This would also make an amazing dessert for Valentine's Day.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

I used a can of chocolate frosting to hide the foil edging of the pie.  I found the frosting in the baking aisle of the grocery store.

I like to keep the chocolate filling of the pie chocolate, so I did not add raspberry jam to the chocolate filling.  I put the raspberry jam on top of the chocolate instead of mixing them.  You can do it either way as I will include both ways in the recipe.

Some of us are still recovering from excess calories during the holidays, so with February upon us and Valentine's Day around the corner, I decided to post this rich dark chocolate smoothie to help satisfy chocolate cravings.  This is both a healthy and delicious alternative to the beginning of February.  This chocolate sweet drink comes from the March 2017 edition of Cooking Light magazine.  It is has no dairy in it.  The addition of dates makes this smoothie extra sweet!

Bon Appetit!

If you are a fan of chai tea, I have the perfect truffle for you!  These chai truffles come from the December 2015 publication of Southern Living's Christmas at Home magazine.  I can definitely say that these little chocolates are heavenly.  If you want to impress friends and family with a gourmet tasting truffle, I recommend you make these chai chocolates.  As an extra bonus, they are easy to prepare, and they keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks!  I enjoy these little desserts while sipping coffee (but I imagine that they also would be delightful with chai tea) as the hot liquid melts the chocolate and the spices onto my tongue.  The flavor is exquisite!

Bon Appetit!

If you are looking for a fall or holiday candy bar that is homemade, look no further!  These pecan bars are absolutely delicious.  It's hard to resist caramel, chocolate, and pecans.  Also, the crust is a delicious shortbread that compliments the other flavors perfectly!  I got this wonderful recipe from the 2000 issue of Land O Lakes: Top 50

I've made these bars multiple times, and I can say with certainty that with a few simple ingredients you will have a mouthwatering treat.  If you make these bars for friends and family, be prepared to get recipe requests.  With Christmas soon to be upon us and holiday baking soon to begin, make sure to have these yummy bars on the baking list.  They most definitely will delight!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

Pecans are the stars of this cookie bar, but by all means, have fun and try a different nut or combination of nuts.

Preparation time is 30 minutes.  Baking time is 18 to 22 minutes.

This is a Weicht family recipe that has been passed down for several generations.  Whenever our extended family is gathered together, these brownies are always brought by someone.  They often disappear quick too.  These marshmallow brownies are perfect for welcoming September (and with September - Autumn), because they have butterscotch, chocolate, pecans, and marshmallows in them.  The ingredients (particularly the butterscotch and the pecans) scream Autumn to me.  Whether it's a family get together, an Autumn picnic, or a sweet craving, these disappearing marshmallow brownies are the perfect dessert for the event!

Bon Appetit!

If you are a chocolate lover, you are going to love these cookies.  They are rich, decadent, and gooey (especially when just out of the oven)!  Your taste buds will sing when you take your first bite.  These cookies are pure chocolate heaven.  I found this recipe in the November 2014 issue of Cooking Light magazine, and it is definitely a delight!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

If you prefer a less intense chocolate flavor, use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the bittersweet chocolate chips.

You almost want to under-bake these cookies for a gooey center.  When the cookies look glossy, pull them out of the oven.  For my oven, it was about 8 minutes when the cookies where almost ready.

The dough needs to chill for 30 minutes so plan ahead!

Preparation time is 16 minutes.  Total time is 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 6.75 ounces unbleached all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

  • 3/8 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup unsalte...

Along with most of the worlds population, I am addicted to chocolate.  Every once in a while (or everyday), I have to feed my craving!  These little chocolate cupcakes are perfect for a chocolate fix.  I found this recipe in Southern Living magazine, the April 2017 edition.  If you crave intense chocolate, you will enjoy the original recipe.  I was curious to see what the outcome would be with a few changes to the original recipe.  Instead of dark chocolate, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips.  My family liked these cupcakes even better than the original ones!  I topped the cupcakes with whipped cream and a few raspberries.  It was scrumptious.  The raspberries, chocolate, and cream complemented each other perfectly.  You can't go wrong with chocolate!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

You can substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for the dark chocolate chips.  You can also do a combination of the two chocolates, if you prefer.  Just make sure that you have 1...
