Is there a better way to serve ice cream in a dish? Sure there is. Try a chocolate dessert cup.
These cups are easy to make. Do not limit yourself to just cup cake liners. Any kind of simple silicone mold may work. Also these can be used for more than just ice cream. . . . Imaging a lovely chocolate mousse or filled with candy for a party favor. The possibilities are endless.

I admire a great pastry chef, Gretchen Price. I have been following her ever since she started her original you-tube channel as Crumb Boss which is where I first tried this recipe. It is the absolute best out there. This was my inspiration for this dessert.
Once you try it yourself, you will be hooked too.
It’s hot out and you are in the mood for a nice chocolatey cookie, but you do not want to overheat the house. Simple solution, make some Chocolate Log Cookies.
Store bought Leibniz butter cookies are transformed into a delicious chocolate log cookie. All you need is a stove top and you are good to go.
These cookies are best when refrigerated and sliced at serving time. Enjoy!
Nothing say love more than Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. These make a great gift for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, a birthday, Anniversaries and any special occasion.
With just a little fancying up you can take these up a level or two and make you own gourmet chocolate covered strawberries. Give it a try, but a few candy cups and a nice box or two and you have a gift fit for a Queen.
Red Velvet Cupcakes are so yummy. The original Red Velvet batter was made by accident when the vinegar added to a recipe gave the cake a red tint. Well in this modern age, we expect to see a red velvet cake RED, not a brownish red, we want a bright RED, so food coloring is also added to color these lovely pieces of heaven.
I use a powdered red food coloring. If you do not have access to powdered food colorings that is okay. Check the notes section of the recipe for substitutes.

I love this chocolate cake recipe. It is made a little differently than most cakes since we add all the dry ingredients all at once then add in the buttermilk, hot water and melted chocolate last. This recipe will make 4 8-inch diameter layers. read more
