I picked up this sweet cookbook pamphlet published in 1947 for 25 cents in an antique shop – I have made these Chocolate Tea Puffs multiple times and they are easy but impressive. They are really profiteroles with a chocolate whipped cream filling and I added a chocolate ganache topping. As an alternative, you could defintiely use the shells to fill with ice cream and top with the ganache or hot fudge for a special dessert.tags: desserts cookies bake boil simmer more
My kids, sadly, prefer Duncan Hines mix, which I refuse to buy (I have a baking business!) but my husband will "sneak" it for them periodically. I finally hit on my official favorite brownie recipe and the irony is that it most closely resembles our favorite DH boxed mix. Thick, chewy, toothsome, with the coveted crackly top. The recipe calls for three kinds of chocolate and is made in one bowl. I'm a believer.tags: desserts snacks bake more
My son is four, which means he’s super into desserts and even more so if they are presented on a stick (who isn’t, right?). He’s also a huge fan of marshmallows, so I decided to teach him how to make Rice Krispie treats. They are easy enough to make and I knew he’d never had them before so he’d be excited to try a new recipe. I wanted our recipe to be a something that felt crafty, too, so I decided to make these Rice Krispie treats festive by cutting them into heart shapes, dipping them in melted pink chocolate and sprinkling them with hearts. We even decided to use red and white colored straws as our lollipop sticks and I think they came out so cute.
Wrap each pop in a small cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon and you have yourself one adorable, edible Valentine. They also make excellent bake sale items and will definitely sell like fast – so be sure to make a double batch.tags: desserts boil more
Blogger Christina shares this delicious summer dessert recipe with us!
"I fell in love with Pavlovas a few years ago after tasting one fresh out of the test kitchen at Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine. Normally I’m not a fruit dessert kinda gal. Chocolate is and always will be my 'thing' but the Pavlova is special. Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside. It’s often served topped with a layer of fresh whipped cream and macerated fresh berries. It’s light and refreshing and honestly the perfect ending to any summer meal."tags: desserts fruit bake more
