Sing with me, friends! “It’s Fry-Day, Fry-Day, gotta fry things on Fry-Day! Everyone’s frying for the weekend! (weekend!)” That’s right, not only do I provide delicious dessert recipes, I’m also your one-stop source for dated Rebecca Black references. You’re welcome. You’re also welcome for this: Just when you thought fresh strawberries couldn’t get any better,…

Chocolate-Covered Raspberries

Move over, chocolate-covered cherries. There’s a new chocolate-covered candy king: chocolate-covered raspberries. Think about it: why should cherries have all the fun? Because if we’re being honest, maraschino cherries are waaaay less fun than fresh raspberries. They’re painfully sweet, barely related to their fresh cherry cousins, and are comprised of approximately 68% red dye, 30%…

Deep-Fried Cheesecake

It’s Fry-Day again, so you know what that means! Time to give our arteries their weekly workout, play with scorching oil, and fry desserts that don’t really require frying. What a magical day. Today’s frying victim: Cheesecake. Cheesecake was sort of a bold choice, because we’re not big cheesecake fans at my house. Jason doesn’t…

Cinnamon Crunch Ice Cream

If I had to pick my favorite ice cream flavor, it would be a hard choice between Mint Chip and Cinnamon. Which, admittedly, doesn’t seem like a fair fight. Mint Chip is the heavyweight, appearing absolutely everywhere, while underdog Cinnamon is criminally ignored as an ice cream flavor. I first tasted cinnamon ice cream as…

Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Remember when I dubbed this the Summer of Ice Cream, way back on Monday? I have an addendum. [But don’t worry. The Summer of Ice Cream is still totally on.] However, it’s also the summer of this: Glorious globes of gooey goodness Yes, friends, this is the summer when I make peace with deep frying…

Almond Coconut Fudge Ripple Ice Cream

I was channeling Ben & Jerry when I came up with this ice cream. It starts with an almond ice cream base, then has swirls of marzipan, gooey coconut, and fudge sauce, and big chunks of chocolate-covered almonds. It’s kind of a big deal. When I beheld my masterpiece, I said to myself, “Self, what…

Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

I wasn’t planning on posting another recipe featuring mini peanut butter cups so soon after the glorious overindulgence known as Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, but the timing just sort of worked out this way. Please don’t be annoyed—they’re for a good cause. And also: mini peanut butter cups. And furthermore: fuuuuudge. And in…

Triple Chocolate Rocky Road Brownies

Real talk. These brownies taste awesome, but they’re kind of ugly. Shhh, shhh. No need to tell one of those nice little white lies. I have eyes, you know. You might have to make these for your favorite friends, the ones who have seen you ugly-cry with makeup running down your face, the ones who…
