Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream

Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Ice Cream | From SugarHero.com

I was shopping in my favorite Armenian market a few weeks ago, and I noticed they were having a monster sale on fresh mint. Four big bunches for 99 cents! Beat that, Whole-Foods-That-Sells-A-Tiny-Sprig-For-$3! So of course I snatched up four bunches and then Insta-bragged about the great deal. I was feeling pretty smug with my…

German Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream + A Chocolate Giveaway!

German Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

As I type this, there is a tell-tale smudge of chocolate above my lip, and a plastic container that’s been licked clean near my left hand. There’s an empty space in my freezer, a faint whiff of chocolate on my breath, and the smallest, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pang of guilt as I think of my sleeping husband,…

Radiant Orchid Mini Cakes

Radiant Orchid Mini Cakes | From SugarHero.com

The first thing you should know about me is that I am NOT a design geek or decorating enthusiast. We moved into our current place four years ago, and I literally just hung some art in the living room a few months ago. Before that, we lived with bare walls painted a charming industrial beige….

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…

Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart | SugarHero.com

You guys. It has been so long since I’ve made a chocolate dessert. And by “so long” I mean almost 3 weeks. Sugar heroes cannot live on giant cakes and churros and strawberry bars alone. We need our chocolate too! Consider this Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart my humble apology to chocolate. I’m sorry for…

Strawberry Basil Crumb Bars

Strawberry Basil Crumb Bars | SugarHero.com

I love basil, which is why I have committed to never owning another basil plant. It’s just too painful to watch them enter the house with bright hopes and green leaves, only to see them quickly wither and die under my not-so-watchful eye. I have the best of intentions, I do…but maybe potted basil +…

Exploding Cupcakes

Exploding Cupcakes | From SugarHero.com

You know what the Fourth of July needs? More exploding food. We have lots of grilled meat. Plenty of fresh fruit. Loads of lemonade. And heaven knows we don’t need any more ridiculously tall desserts in our lives. But…exploding food? Yeah, I could do with more of that. I’m here to solve all of your not-having-enough-exploding-food-dilemmas. (File…

Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches

Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches | From SugarHero.com

Thank you to Yahoo Food for sponsoring this post and giveaway! It’s time to give churros a makeover. Obviously, as a fried dough enthusiast, I’m fond of them. They’re comforting and familiar and taste like my childhood—warm summer days spent at amusement parks, eating churros between bites of cotton candy and caramel apples. (I was…
