Hazelnut Meringue Cake

Hazelnut Meringue Cake | From SugarHero.com

Let us now take a moment of silence to honor the 30+ egg whites who gave their lives in service of making the perfect hazelnut meringue. Rest in peace, good buddies. Lest you gasp and clutch your grocery budget in horror, this recipe doesn’t require anywhere near 30 egg whites. It does, apparently, require one…

Brownie Bread Pudding

Brownie Bread Pudding | From SugarHero.com

There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind of people who aren’t sure if they have extra cookies or brownies just lying around their house, all shrugged shoulders and devil-may-care about it, and the kind of people who know with pinpoint accuracy the location of every item of sugary value within a…

Chocolate Chai Pots de Creme | SugarHero.com

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…

The Ultimate Banana Split

The Ultimate Banana Split | From SugarHero.com

Ultimate. Ginormous. Towering. Honkin’. Pimped out. Pick your giant adjective of choice–however you want to describe it, this is one hyoooooge* banana split! *I hope you said this with a Donald Trump voice, because I sure did.

Ice Cream Sundae Cake

Ice Cream Sundae Cake | From SugarHero.com

Quick! Name the summeriest thing you can think of. Sand-crusted weekends at the beach? Long, sticky days at the pool working on your skin cancer tan? Frosty drinks beneath a palm tree? Hearing that horrible Iggy Azalea song one too many times and throwing your radio across the room in disgust? All good answers, but…

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,…
