Chocolate Chai Bread

Chocolate Chai Bread

This chocolate cinnamon bread reminds me of the new chocolate chai tea lattes at Starbucks this year. The combination of spice and chocolate pairs well together, and surprisingly enough I adapted this recipe from some chocolate cinnamon breadĀ Starbucks sometimes sells in their shops and added some extra spices to boost the fall flavor. I halved…

White Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Merlot Sauce

White Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Merlot Sauce

I’ve been dreaming about combining white chocolate with the L’Ecole chocolate merlot sauce, so I finally did it in the form of ice cream. We won’t be able to bring it with us on the road trip, so I’m trying to think of clever ways to use it before we head out. Make sure to…

Smoked Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Smoked Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

These chocolate covered espresso beans are proof that the simplest things can be elevated using high quality ingredients. When Dustin’s parents visited us over July 4th, we hit up Espresso Vivace in the Capital Hill area. We’ve gotten great coffee the last two years, but Vivace has by far been our favorite. It’s such a…

Raspberry Chocolate Sweet Rolls

Raspberry Chocolate Sweet Rolls

I’ve been dreaming of these raspberry breakfast rolls ever since I saw them in Food and Wine Magazine. I wanted to take them up a notch, so I added chocolate to the mix both inside the filling and in addition to a traditional icing in the form of chocolate merlot sauce from L’Ecole, previously seen…

Spicy Chocolate Donuts

Spicy Chocolate Donuts

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo a little early, I wanted to make chocolate donuts made with Mexican chocolate. However we were unable to find “Mexican chocolate” at our local grocery stores, so we just bought a spicy chili chocolate bar and added own extra spicing and flavors. These donuts are actually quite spicy, but are…

Chocolate Chunk Brioche Pretzels

Chocolate Chunk Brioche Pretzels

RIP KitchenAid Stand Mixer. We had a good run. It was great while it lasted. The mixer, passed down to us from D’s parents, died a silent death as I made these rich, buttery breakfast pretzels. I was celebrating more good graduate school news and making Dustin and his coworkers a quick treat before I…

Chocolate Pomegranate Pancakes

Chocolate Pomegranate Pancakes

Erin typically does the cooking, but every once in awhile, I force her to let me cook. Usually, that means me grilling up a steak. However, I convinced her to give up her culinary duties one morning and let me griddle up some pancakes. I was really feeling chocolate pancakes, and I wanted to throw…

Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Chocolate and cherries are a perfect flavor combination, so when I saw this recipe for cherry chocolate muffins, I thought this would be a great way to use our copious amounts of fresh cherries (and eat chocolate for breakfast). The best part about these muffins were that they don’t have a ton of sugar in…

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables, drizzled with a little olive oil and placed on the grill, so I’ve always been curious about how it would taste in baked goods. With the abundance of fresh zucchini at the market, I figured now was as good a time as any. Making a chocolate zucchini bread…

Chocolate Biscuits

Chocolate Biscuits

Chocolate for breakfast! These biscuits from How Sweet It Is, sprinkled with powdered sugar, taste a lot like chocolate cookies with a fluffy, buttermilk biscuity texture. I made them into drop biscuits because I didn’t have a biscuit cutter, so mine don’t look nearly as pretty, but they were tasty, especially covered in delicious blackberry…
