Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffle Tart

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…

Marbled Easter Egg Truffles

Happy Monday! …Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a happy Monday, but wishing everyone a “Middling Monday” just didn’t have the same ring to it. At my house we’re still recovering from a crazy weekend  that included my son’s birthday party (yay) and yet another ear infection (boo). I have some fun Easter desserts in…

Caramelized White Chocolate Truffles

This is a game changer. In the past, I’ve always tolerated white chocolate as “that other chocolate which is not nearly as good as the dark stuff, but which pairs nicely with raspberries and can be used to make mousses when you want other flavors to shine, and which is legitimately delicious in macadamia nut cookies.” Okay,…

Truffle-Topped Heart Cake

  Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love. Some people may think it’s about the love for a significant other, or family, or best friends, or even pets. Those people are dead wrong. To me, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating the most important love of all: chocolate. What better way to show chocolate that you truly…

It’s almost New Year’s Eve, y’all! Time to do what Prince says and party like it’s 1999. So switch out those smart phones for brick-sized cell phones, blast the Ricky Martin tunes, and let’s all invest in some dot-coms or something. Yesss! It’s a little funny that I’m sharing a New Year’s Eve party recipe,…

Truffle-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the perks-slash-problems of having a job that involves making candy at home is that, at the end of the day, I end up with a lot of candy at home. (Duh.) It’s awesome because I love eating sweets, but it’s also dangerous, because: see above. Some weeks I do a good job of…

Cherry-Chocolate Heart Truffles

I think I need to start getting kickbacks from the luster dust industry. Or is it bad form to say that out loud? Let me start again. I think I need to start getting ickbacks-kay from the uster-lay ust-day industry-hay. (Call me!) Seriously, though, I have been putting this stuff on EVERYTHING lately, and I…

Passionate Baking, Three Ways

Even before I’d ever tasted passion fruit, I fell in love with the name. Growing up surrounded by boring, utilitarian fruit names (are you listening, orange?), learning that there was a fruit that broke this mold was a revelation. It belongs on a soap opera! Of course I was intensely curious about its flavor. Did…
