Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies! What is it about a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie stuffed with decadent, rich, melted chocolate that makes it so irresistible?? Especially when topped with vanilla ice cream. All you really need for these fabulous cookies is your favorite cookie dough and a bag of chocolate chips. Since these cookies are absolutely gushing with delicious rich chocolate, my favorite chocolate chips for this recipe are the Hersey’s Milk Chocolate chips. Now let’s make some chocolate lava cookies! Place the flattened cookie dough in the bottom of a well-greased standard sized muffin tin. Now for our gooey, rich milk chocolate filling. Lay the Ziploc bag flat in the microwave, spreading out the chocolate chips in a single layer. Cut a small tip off the Ziploc bag and layer over the cookies. Heaven help me. Scoop and flatten the remaining dough, and place on top of your lava cookies. Now here’s how I like my cookies. Mama mia. 1. 2. 3.

Pop them in the oven for 7-8mins Until they look like these bad boys- While they're still warm, scoop them onto a plate & serve with a frosty glass of milk. Enjoy! Vampire Cookies Every year I see lots of Halloween cupcakes and cakes that are rather boring in their decorations. They may have faces of ghosts or vampires painted on top with colored icing, but that really doesn’t do much to set them apart from non-holiday cupcakes. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I think it’s fun to go over-the-top where ever possible and really take decorations as far as they can go. I did this last Halloween by creating Vampire Cupcakes – cupcakes filled with a blood-red cherry pie filling that “bled” when you bit into them. This year, I wanted to start a little collection of vampire Halloween goodies and opted to try my hand at making vampire cookies. Like the cupcakes, I wanted the cookies to be a pale white color and filled with something bright red. I made the bite marks by poking two holes in the dough with a toothpick before baking. The cookies have a light vanilla and butter flavor to them, and are the perfect color to really set off the red of the filling.
Chocolate Covered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe Chocolate Covered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich Brownies and Bars, Chocolate, Dessert, Frozen Desserts, Guest Posts | 66 comments I’m taking some time off to be with my family for a little while. The following recipe is written by Jaime of Sophistimom. Welcome, Jaime! Last year, while developing a recipe for homemade Ho-Ho’s, I accidentally made something more like a thin brownie than a cake. When Katie invited me to write this post for today, it was still cold and rainy here in the Rocky Mountains. So I turned to my food magazines for a little help, as I often do. And that became my starting point. Martha’s ice cream bar had only one cookie layer, so I wanted to make it a little different—more like an ice cream sandwich. To make them easier to dip in chocolate, I inserted wooden Dixie cup spoons, and turned them on end to set. What about you? Need another Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe? About the Author:

My love for fried chicken, much like my love for noodles, is not very discerning. I can definitely tell the difference between good and bad noodles and chicken, but my love is so all-encompassing that I can forgive faults easily.

homemade pop tarts I never had a Pop-Tart until college. I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right? I understand that if I had toasted it, my experience might have been better. I can’t believe I waited so long to make these. Most recipes I have come across use a pie dough for the pastry but I was really stuck on getting a crust that was a little more sturdy — one with an egg.
