Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?
Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
These cookies would be great as an after-school snack, a throw-in for the lunchbox, or even doubled up for a different on-the-go breakfast. And by doubling up, I mean that you may want two. Why not?!
Today I want to share one way to deal with all the candy you end up with this time of year as well as some real food for Halloween or fall-themed parties (new recipe included!).
Chocolate pudding used to be a regular thing for me as a kid and also for my kids before we cut out all highly processed food. This recipe for Homemade Chocolate Pudding only takes 5 minutes to make, and it’s a treat that’s definitely worth it!
Even us die-hard real foodies love a “cheat” treat every now and then. And if it’s homemade from scratch (and includes chocolate!!) I am game. These molten lava cakes are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any other time of year you’re simply having a craving. Their naturally small size helps keep serving sizes in check, and this little video shows how simple this recipe really is. 4-Ingredient Molten Lava Cakes 4.5 from 6 votes Course: Dessert Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 8 minutes Total Time: 18 minutes Servings  (adjust to suit): 10 mini cakes Adapted from a recipe by Mark Bittman Print Ingredients 8 tablespoons butter, 1 stick 3/4 cup chocolate chips 2 eggs 2 egg yolks, discard or use egg whites elsewhere 2 tablespoons sugar Instructions Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and line a muffin pan with parchment paper muffin liners. Melt butter and chocolate chips together over low heat until smooth. Let cool slightly. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture until well combined. Divide among 10 standard muffin cups and bake until cakes are puffed up, but still jiggly in the center – about 6 to 8 minutes. Turn out upside down onto a plate, garnish, and serve immediately. Recipe Notes Suggested garnishes: Fresh berries, powdered sugar, whipped cream and/or vanilla ice creamWe recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
I’m excited to share this recipe for Chocolate Chip Blondies, which is what I made for holiday cookie exchange parties this year.
I’ve got the perfect cold treat for you that’s super easy to make on a hot summer day (no oven required!). I saw a similar recipe in a magazine and loved how easy it looked, thinking about when we occasionally break our rules and enjoy a sugary homemade treat.
I have a super fun summer party idea for you …Backyard Movie Night with a DIY S’mores Bar!
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I’ve got the perfect homemade treat for you (and the one you love)! These Peanut Butter Brownie Bars would also make a fun little treat to share with teachers and neighbors in honor of the upcoming “day of love,” especially if you’re me and you’ve made this recipe three times in the last week in order to get it just right.
Okay, just to be clear up front – it takes only 5 minutes to stir up the batter for these homemade brownies, but of course a little longer than that to actually bake them! But as I was making this batch I was thinking how it really doesn’t take much longer to make brownies from scratch than it does to add some eggs and other stuff to one of these lovely boxes of brownie mix pictured down below.
