Chocolate

Bargain Shopping

Why yes, there was a chocolate sale at the grocery store, why do you ask? [11 lbs of chocolate for $24.60 = $2.24/lb.] I think I might have temporarily cornered the chocolate market.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes

Ahh, velcome to Tuesdays vith Dorie…Haunted Cupcake Edition. Mwahahaha! As a holiday, Halloween doesn’t inspire a lot of passion in me. I can never think of brilliant costume ideas, and let’s face it, I chow down on candy year-round. However, I do love cake (and cupcake!) decorating, so when Clara at I Heart Food for…

Chocolate-Chile Souffles with Cardamom Creme Anglaise

When I read on Anita’s blog that this month’s Sugar High Friday theme is Spices, I immediately knew I wanted to make a cardamom dessert. Cardamom is an underutilized spice in my kitchen–I love the flavor, but I rarely make desserts that can showcase its unique, exotic flavor. I considering pairing it with fruit like…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Caramel-Peanut Brownie Cake

Members of the jury, I ask you: can Dorie’s Caramel-Peanut Brownie Cake more accurately be described as Diabetes on a Plate Cake? Exhibit A: Exhibit B: Seriously, y’all. I love me some sugar as much as the next person, but this cake was intense. It was, in the terminology of my barely-remembered high school chemistry…

Black and White Angel Food Cupcakes

I was completely torn when I found out that cupcakes were this month’s Sugar High Friday theme. I love Sugar High Friday! And I really, really love cupcakes. But I’ve been feeling a little…squishier around the middle lately, and I’m sure it’s due to all of the baked goods lying around, and my accompanying lack…

Tuesdays with Elizabeth: Soft Granola Bars

Hi folks! I’m taking a pass on this week’s Tuesday with Dorie (dimpled plum cake) because I’ve been out of town the past few days. Actually, I’m still away, but thanks to the magic of the internets (and good old-fashioned voodoo), I can still keep my Tuesday rendezvous with you all. So what’s so important…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Chunkers

Chipsters, Chunkers, Grabbers…we Doritos continue our obsession with twee-ly named cookies this week. “Chocolate Chunkers” have a rich, fudgy cookie base with lots of melted chocolate (unsweetened and bittersweet) AND cocoa in the batter, which is then loaded with chunks of bittersweet and white chocolate, chopped nuts, and dried fruit.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops

Picasso had his blue period. Woody Allen had his Scarlett Johansson period. And we Tuesdays with Dorie bakers, we are in the midst of our great Cookie Period. Last week we did Chunkariffic Peanutty Buttery Oatey Chocolatey Cookie-y Chubbers (or whatever they were called) and this week we have Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops. No boring…
