Dessert

Ok, so this isn't really a restuarant review, but I wanted to let you know about some delicious chocolate.  American Heritage Chocolate isn't your average chocolate company.  Yes, it's a division of MARS, Incorporated, but they make their chocolate based on a colonial recipe with spices (anise, red pepper, nutmeg, orange, and cinnamon).

Have a special occasion coming up?  Then you need to make Dave's Super Special Brownies!

I'm a member of a monthly cooking club. Last month's theme was Country French. I had fruit tartlets in mind, but since I was semi-winging it, this is what I ended up with...

Need to make favors?  Or just want to learn how to use chocolate molds?  These directions are pretty easy, but keep in mind there are other more complicated molds (such as peanut butter cups).

Materials needed:

- candy mold ($2-3 at Michael's)

- candy melts / chocolate buttons (any color or flavor - $3 at Michael's)

- small glass bowl

- teaspoon

One bag of Wilton's Candy Melts will make about 100 hearts.

Directions:

Makes about 14 1/2-cup servings

So many holiday parties, so little time! Try making these cookies for family and friends.

I found this recipe in an old issue of Cuisine at Home. The look of it caught my eye so I thought I’d give it a shot. The recipe looked a little complicated, but it was easier than I thought.

Just had to post this recipe. I don’t like to cook/bake anything for others unless I like a lot it myself and I LIKE IT! Originally, I wanted to try this dessert because the picture in the recipe book caught my eye. Who knew that the taste and the texture would be just as good. Sweet and chocolatey. Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. 3 ingredients, easy to make, tastes great. What more could you want? This is definitely one of my new favorites!
