Chocolate - Oh dear, DEER!

Monday’s Mouthful – Homemade Bounty Bars!

Monday’s Mouthful – Homemade Bounty Bars!

As a kid Bounty Bars were among my favourite treats. (side note: if you’ve never had the Bounty ice cream bars you are seriously missing out.) Turns out homemade bounty bars are probably the easiest candy ever to make! With only 3 ingredients including the chocolate for dipping, there is no excuse not to make these right away!

Monday’s Mouthful – Stout Brownies

Monday’s Mouthful – Stout Brownies

Today I want to talk to you about stout brownies.

I will be the first to admit I don’t really get the appeal of brownies. If I want my dose of chocolate to be fudge-y I’ll buy chocolate fudge, if I want rich chocolate my favourite dark chocolate bar does the trick, and if I’m craving a chocolate baked good a cupcake wins out every time. With all of that said however… add beer to anything and I’ll be hooked!

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Red Wine Cake

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Red Wine Cake

In my world the only thing better than chocolate is red wine. This chocolate red wine cake is the best thing ever created.  I bake this whenever I can, like this weekend when I was volunteered by C to bring dessert to a friend’s house for lunch!

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Monday’s Mouthful – Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Is there any better comfort food than great chocolate chip cookies? Last week at school had my head spinning, and by the time I had made my 4 different train (metro, train, train) connections back home to Belgium I was in need of a perfectly warm, fresh baked chocolate chip cookie. Typically this would mean nothing more than slicing off a piece of cookie dough stored in my freezer but since I hadn’t baked cookies since arriving in March I thought I would mix up a batch to share with you.

Peppermint Patties!

Peppermint Patties!

I love chocolate. I love mint. The only way to make these two things better? Put them together. Peppermint patties are among my favourite candies. They are my go-to movie snack, my I’m happy snack, I’m sad snack… really my all of the time snack.
