Simple chocolate brownie bites are topped with frosting that tastes just like hot chocolate. Don’t forget the marshmallows on top!
I may not be the biggest chocolate fan when it stands alone and neither do I enjoy a glass of cold chocolate milk. However, if you place a mug of hot chocolate topped with marshmallows in front of me, nothing can prevent me from draining it (except maybe if it’s made with water instead of milk). So when I discovered that my friend Heather created a hot chocolate frosting I could not wait to try it – it quite literally tastes just like hot chocolate and it therefore spoon-worthy. Seriously, other than cream cheese or peanut butter frosting I rarely have the urge to eat frosting alone off a spoon but this stuff rocks. I have already used Dollop Gourmet Hot Chocolate Frosting on top of Greek yogurt thumbprint cookies and now I’ve been caught in the act of dolloping again. This time on top of brownies.
P.S. It’s also National Hot Chocolate Day, so if you live in the northeast you better run out and buy some of this frosting. I know I plan to snag a bunch (including the other 3 flavors) when I am home in Rochester for the holidays. Heck I’m tempted to mix it into some hot milk to make frosting-hot chocolate!

After falling in love with marshmallow creme in my no-churn s’mores ice cream I had to try it again. Check out my recipe for no-churn fluffernutter ice cream, shared today over on Kayle’s blog The Cooking Actress!

NO-CHURN FLUFFERNUTTER ICE CREAM
Don’t worry about sharing with this s’mores lasagna for one. Made with layers of graham cracker, chocolate sweetened Greek yogurt, and graham crackers.
Happy National S’mores Day! Today is yet another fun food holiday that landed on a Sunday which means this dangerous little guy comes to you in single serving size.
The idea for this came from my chocolate peanut butter cup lasagna which was a huge hit. This s’mores version is a tiny bit healthier being made with Greek yogurt that has been sweetened slightly with cocoa powder and powdered sugar. The rest isn’t quite as healthy with marshmallow creme, graham crackers, mini marshmallows and a chocolate drizzle.
If made for a crowd this would great presented in a tall clear glass, better defining the layers. But since I know you’re just going to eat this while standing over the kitchen counter there’s no need to get all fancy.
Put a savory twist on your everyday crispy treats with Cheetos. Crushed up Cheetos in place of puffed rice cereal will shock and intrigue but don’t let it scare you. Try it yourself!
Today is National Cheese Day which is a food item worthy of rejoicing. But I did something a bit different to celebrate – I made cheesy crispy treats using Cheetos. Yes you read that correctly. Instead of puffed rice cereal, slightly crushed crunchy Cheetos are mixed with the melted butter-marshmallow mixture and then pressed into a greased pan to set. Cut and serve just like any other rice crispy bar and then watch the confused reactions around you. I brought these to a small pot luck and most of the initial reactions were “I don’t know how to feel about this” but slowly admitted that they actually enjoyed them which was proven by the disappearance of the bars. They may not be for everyone but sweet and salty is a thing for a reason!
Looking for an Easter dessert? This cute Easter bunny cake is easily constructed with two round cakes. The best part is that it’s a no-bake cake made out of rice krispies treats.
Baking for the holidays is always a lot of fun. Beyond an excuse to use festive sprinkles, there are so many creative ideas. Take this cake for example – two round cakes magically transform into this cute little guy. Unfortunately my photo-shoot for this Easter creation was not conducive to great pictures, but the execution is what’s important here. It’s an Easter bunny cake!
First things first, this is a no-bake cake. I made a cake out of rice krispies treats which were formed in cake pans. Using a simple template I cut up one of the cakes into the ears and bowtie to create the bunny. From there all that remained was to frost and decorate! You can use any assortment of candy, sprinkles, and frosting that you prefer. I made the eyes out of leftover cakeball fondant and white and black frosting, the cheeks are pink sprinkles, the nose is more cakeball fondant, the mouth is black frosting, and finally the bowtie consists of a chocolate chip cookie, cakeball fondant and sprinkles. Coconut would also be a great way to make a “fluffy” bunny but I made this cake for a non-coconut lover.
