Easy Valentine's Day Chocolate Dessert

Chocolate Ganache Filled Cookie Cups

Now if you know me, cooking is not my favorite.  At least not gourmet Julia Child cooking.  Baking is a little better – but anything I make has to be easy – and I’m always a huge fan of short cuts (in this case, Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough is to thank for my shortcut.)

If you are a better baker than I, then you may prefer to use your own sugar cookie cookie recipe. As for me, I have no problem heading to Wegmans and picking up my 30 oz package of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough for this recipe.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels 

I’m sure some brilliant person somewhere has already put two and two together (or three in this case), but alas… it took me a little bit longer.  Not that I haven’t combined chocolate and peanut butter together before.  Because I have.

Case in point my Hot n Gooey Cinnamon Toast Sandwich, Peanut Butter and Chocolate French Toast and my Chocolate Clusters. Simple ingredients.  Just three… that is all you need.

No Bake Strawberries & Cream Icebox Cake Recipe 

Icebox cakes have been around for awhile, but I just finished making my first one!

I decided instead to make a strawberry icebox cake – which in my opinion is strawberry shortcake on steroids!  This is a scrumptious strawberry dessert that is creamy and delicious!  Drizzle it with some chocolate syrup on top before serving!

90 Second Brownie In A Mug 

My mother is a gourmet cook, and she would love to spend her days in the kitchen when I was growing up.  I on the other hand – I like my recipes to be fast and easy and would dread being in the kitchen all day. It’s so hard to me to justify the time cooking/baking when it will be consumed in minutes.

So whenever my mom finds an easy and quick recipe that I can handle, she passes it along to me.  Then, if it is easy enough, and tastes good, I’ll share it with you.  Here is the latest she found for me to try:  90 Second Easy Microwave Brownie in a Mug!

Don’t forget your coffee with your dessert!

When I have a rich chocolate dessert, I love having a cup of good coffee to go with it.  I recently tried the King Cake Community Coffee – and the slight vanilla & cinnamon flavor goes great with any chocolate treat!

This coffee was created to celebrate coming of the wise men bearing gifts to the Christ Child is celebrated twelve days after Christmas.

This is referred to as the Feast of the Epiphany, or Little Christmas on the Twelfth Night. King Cake continues the celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany with a special cake to honor the Three Kings.
