Chocolate Lasagna Recipe
This is for YOU, the chocolate lover out there who is looking for a chocolate-y treat that is actually quite light! Chocolate Lasagna is a dessert you don’t want to miss! When Ryan told me that this fabulous Chocolate Lasagna ranks up there on his list of favorite desserts of all time, I knew I had to share it with you. Just looking at the layers upon layers of goodness, you can tell it’s going to be worth salivating over! You will begin with the crust which consists of crushed Oreos mixed with a little butter. After pressing the cookie/butter mixture into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, you’ll get working on the layers! The first layer is a white layer which consists of cream cheese that you’ve whipped until fluffy, sugar, a little milk, and some Cool Whip. The chocolate layer is simply chocolate pudding. At any rate, once the pudding has thickened up a bit, you’ll spread it over the white layer. The very last layer is simply a little more Cool Whip that you’ll spread over the top.

Mini Cherry Pies Mini Cherry Pies Today is a big day in Sweet Pea’s Kitchen. It marks my three year blog anniversary! Three years ago I started sharing some of my favorite recipes on this blog.

These mini pies are the perfect dessert to bring to a cookout. You can use store bought crust and pie fillings if you are in a huge rush, but following this recipe and making everything from scratch really is the way to go.

Pour into the ramekins and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and then bake the little cakes for about 15-20 minutes.

Caramel Tart-Caramel Tarts-Chocolate Tart-Chocolate Tarts-Pasta Frolla Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Friday, 8th July 2011 When I finally decided on Lemon Meringue Tarts for the holiday weekend I knew I would have to offer another choice because not everyone in my family is a fan of citrus desserts. It didn’t take me too long to decide on the other option because everyone in my family loves chocolate. I decided immediately to pair the chocolate with luscious caramel. I also wanted to add a few different textures and flavours. I present to you pure indulgence, Chocolate-Caramel Tart – crispy, hazelnut sweet short pastry with four layers of goodness – caramel, toasted hazelnuts, dark and milk chocolate ganache, and milk chocolate glaze. I could have stopped with the dark and milk chocolate ganache layer but the chocolate lover in me took over. Wow! The classical pairing of chocolate and caramel is one of my favourites but adding toasted nuts brings any dessert to another level for me. I wish the kids enjoyed the pairing as much as I do.

Chocolate Pudding Pie This chocolate pudding pie is amazing! It's creamy, has a deep chocolate flavor, and still manages to be a light dessert. After it got all prettied up with some white chocolate lace it was ready to be the perfect pie for my mom's birthday dinner. Since chilled pies can't be decorated with icing like a cake nor baked with pie crust designs I decided to pipe a simple lace design with melted white chocolate. While the chocolate lace was chilling in the fridge I made the pie crust using Michel Roux's recipe from his book "Pastry Savory and Sweet". For some reason I am currently without a rolling pin.. ..Thank god I have a clean empty wine bottle in a sock monkey cover. Obviously I had to remove the sock monkey before actually using the wine bottle to roll out the chilled dough. The pudding is made from whole milk, cocoa powder, corn starch, and bittersweet chocolate. Voila! ..Presents! Happy Birthday Mom!
