What’s better than a nice, hot bowl of soup on a cold winter day? And what’s better than stuffing your face with chocolate when you’re 100% done with cold winter days? Fortunately, we here at Persephone have got you covered for both scenarios. In case you missed them, here are all of our soup of the […]
Tag: Chocolate of the Day
This recipe is more like a glorified smoothie than actual ice-cream. With Nutella. Best of all, there is no need to futz with making custard or finding yourself an ice cream maker.
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 […]
Chocolate Chai is a big food fad right now, and one my husband has jumped all over. I’m not a huge fan of Chai drinks, but I love Chai in baked goods, so I put this yummy recipe together so I can be on trend and quit being jealous of his Chocolate Chai Lattes.
If you’re a fan of chocolate chip cookies, you might want to give this blondie recipe a try. Not only are they absolutely yummy, they’re so easy to make. Even I can do it!
Chocolate of the Day: Let’s Get Drunk
It’s Friday, and this post is running at 5:30 p.m. in my time zone, so feel free to use the excuse “it’s happy hour somewhere.” Screw Valentine’s Day, seriously, let’s get drunk on chocolate, poodles.
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.
Chocolate of the Day: Death By Chocolate
This was a dessert my mother made for only the fanciest of pot lucks. (Such a thing exists in the Midwest.) I used to think it was really complicated. No, it really is just full of things that will kill you. It’s also wonderfully versatile: make it gluten free by using gluten free brownies, sub […]
You read that correctly — Salted. Caramel. Chocolate. Chip. Cookie. Bars. And, yes, they are as amazeballs as you think they are.
Chocolate of the Day: Coca-Cola Cake
I’d like to think of this recipe as a Southern recipe, as in, a recipe that is very much indicative of Southern cooking. Apparently, this was a much-loved recipe at church potlucks when my mom was growing up.
Chocolate of the Day: No Bake Cookies
This is a rehash of a post I ran during our second month, back when we had eight readers. You all can get your chocolate in my peanut butter any time.
Giant cookies filled with chocolate, nuts, and coconut? Y’all, this is my favorite cookie recipe of all time. I found it in one of my parents’ cookbooks sometime in high school and it is just SO good. Alas, I have no idea which one; it’s been… a while and Google was less than forthcoming; I had […]
Chapped lips suck. Chocolate lips are delicious.
I love hot chocolate, whether it’s from a packet, homemade with cocoa powder, or purchased at a coffee shop. But I got to wondering, is there more to hot chocolate than powder and milk? After the jump, some easy ways to dress up your hot chocolate.
