Four Fantastic Ways to Use Ganache | From SugarHero.com

Thank you to HP for sponsoring this post. Today’s an extra-special day here at SugarHero HQ. For one thing, it’s Friday (yesssssssss!) and for another, today I get to share not one, but four (actually, FIVE!) chocolate recipes with you. Stellar, right? So let’s gorge ourselves on chocolate loveliness before collapsing slack-jawed in front of…

Giant Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Mousse Cakes

Giant Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Mousse Cakes

Happy World Nutella Day! This is one food holiday I always look forward to. I’ve celebrated it for the past several years, so by now I have a healthy little collection of Nutella-based desserts on the blog, and I’m always looking to top myself and go a little bigger than the year before. Five years…

Rainbow Mousse Cake + A Mega Giveaway!

Happy blog birthday to ME! This month marks 3 years of SugarHero-ing it up with you guys, making ridiculously tall cakes, using unhealthy amounts of butter, singlehandedly supporting the chocolate industry, and putting luster dust and gold leaf on absolutely anything and everything, darlings. It has been a blast and it just keeps getting better….

Chocolate Orange Panna Cotta

In the past decade, I’ve transformed from a person who doesn’t really care about Halloween at all to a woman whose closets contain an excess of decorative spiders, fake body parts, and pumpkin paraphernalia. I may or may not have an entire row of Halloween sprinkles in my cupboard, and I’m not saying I body-checked someone to get…

Thank you to McCormick for sponsoring this post! Gather round, children, gather round. Allow me to rest in my creaky rocking chair, take up my knitting, and tell you a story about young Elizabeth’s magical 21st birthday.  

Chocolate Chai Pots de Creme

Sometimes, as a dinner host or hostess, you just want to kick back, relax, serve an easy make-ahead dessert that looks a lot harder than it is, and make your guest uncomfortable when they’re not sure how to pronounce the dessert’s name. Ya feel me? I mean, is that so unusual? Okay, maybe other people…

Banana Bread Tiramisu

Banana Bread Tiramisu | From SugarHero.com

I love banana bread. I love tiramisu. I love making recipes with a bajillion components (although I kind of hating writing out those long recipes…sigh). I really love putting on my fancy pants and going to town with frou-frou decorations. So obviously, these banana bread tiramisus in edible chocolate wrappers are basically my own culinary…

Pannetone Bread Pudding with Eggnog Crème Anglaise

Merry day-after-Christmas! I hope you all had wonderful ones, if you’re the celebrating type. I myself have been “relaxing” (as much as one can relax with an excitable elf-sized kid running around), eating way too much fudge, and making gingerbread houses, and enjoying other seasonal nonsense. I made these pannetone bread puddings a few weeks…
