Simple Hot Cocoa Mix with Creamer

My youngest son is absolute hot cocoa fiend. As soon as the weather is cool enough (by his standards) he is in the kitchen making his cocoa. Don’t get me wrong. I like it occasionally, but nearly as often as he does! This recipe was born out of necessity one night when we…

Coconut and Chocolate Pie- No Bake

Sometimes you need a really simple dessert to throw together. This one is just one of those desserts. Although it does take time to set up, the actual prep time is about 10 minutes. I can really get into a dessert like that! It has an Oreo crust, which we love, a layer of ganache…

I always have to laugh when I make this ice cream cake. Why? Everyone swears this they is the best ice cream cake ever…how did I have time to make my own ice cream…etc,etc. So, what is so funny, is none of that is true. It is all made from…

Giant Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

This dessert is my boy’s dream come true. They love chocolate chip cookies, and a giant cookie is a million time better! It’s about the same recipe I normally use, kind of. There are a few modifications you make. Start with melted butter and sugars. Blend well. Add in egg and…

Dark Chocolate and Almond Tarts

This super simple recipe is an ode to my dark chocolate loving mother. I don’t remember her ever particularly liking to cook. Of course she had 10 kids to feed, so that MAY have played a small part in her dislike of preparing food. I thought of her with this simple recipe, because…

Dark Chocolate Snacks

Here is another simple recipe I’m using as an ode to my dark chocolate loving mother! How simple you might wonder….super simple! Melt Dark chocolate. I used a tollhouse dark chocolate, it’s not the best quality, but good. I would definitely recommend something a little higher quality, but this…
