Chocolate of the Day: Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cupcakes

This confection came about when I wanted to make chocolate-covered cherries for my husband but didn’t want to deal with the candy-making part. I’ve always been a far better baker than confectioner, so this was a no-brainer. Over the years, it’s become a go-to item for holiday gift baking.

Chocolate of The Day: Deep Dish Brownies

Though I enjoy cooking, I have never been much of a baker. Sticky, precise ingredients mixed with being lactose intolerant takes a lot of the fun out of it for me, but I do make some pretty great brownies. That’s my kind of baking — just a bit of mixing, pour the batter in pan, and it’s into the oven. And as I discovered the last time I made them, my recipe holds up rather well when one makes a mistake.

Chocolate of the Day: Nutella Ricotta Cookies

Four years ago, I gave my boyfriend a Nutella cookbook. Him being the amazing cook-by-the-book man he is (he ain’t), that cookbook disappeared after he tried one recipe. And now there are some silly recipes in it (make bread, add Nutella, enjoy), there are – especially with some modifications – plenty tasty things to find.
