Special Chocolate Dessert…

Pin It!

Hi Chocolate Cream Pies!

Happy Saturday to y’all. I’m so excited it’s finally getting warmer. Went running in shorts today! I’m taking advantage of the perfect 60-degree running weather while I can… because soon enough, it’ll be too hot. Luckily, I created a weapon for the inevitable blazing temperatures:

hot cocoa

Care to venture a guess as to what it is?


Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

    Amazing giveaway! I am starting to love larabars… :)

  22. Michele says:

    Katie, you’ve been such an inspiration! I’ve used a ton of your tips about not being the “one with the weird diet,” including bringing food everyone can eat. I got a bunch of good ol’ Southern boys to fall in love with a spinach-artichoke dip before telling them it had tofu (not sour cream or cream cheese) in it :)

  23. Valerie says:

    I can’t wait to see the recipe for your cake batter desert pizza!

  30. Karine says:


    Can I enter your Jocalat Larabars contest if I don’t live in the U.S. ? (But Switzerland?)

    By the was, I’m looking forward to discovering the new recipes! 😀


    1. Sorry, this one’s just for US :(. It’s because the Larabar company is doing the shipping. But whenever I host my own giveaways, I make sure to include international readers!

      1. Karine says:

        Sorry for “spamming” the contest then. :S

        1. Oh my gosh, no worries at all! Never be sorry for leaving a comment :).

  31. Emily says:

    Cake batter pizza? That sounds awesome! I’ve never tried this flavor larabar, it would be exciting to win!

  32. Every morning when I look at your blog, you bring the biggest smile to my face! Everything about you is pure genius :) thanks for your inspection and sharing your talent!!

  33. Susan says:

    I have not tried this line from Larabar. This is a great giveaway!

  34. Sarah says:

    jocolat, oh jocolat, i want to eat you a lot.

  35. Alexandra says:

    Ok, I’ve loved you forever and just “liked” your Facebook page so love me forever back, ok? I’ve actually been reading your blog for well over but never commented (maybe once). I say time for me to delurk. You’re really quite an amazing creative young woman and I love receiving my daily email from CCK!

    Oh, I almost forgot, you’re actually the one that introduced me to Larabars! For that, I love you and curse at the same time because I buy them in bulk as if a great Larabar shortage was approaching. Poor wallet of mine. I have yet to try the Jocolat though so crossing my fingers I’ll be the lucky winner.

    Can’t wait to see what’s in that delicious Special Choco Dessert!

    1. Awww wow, thank you!!! And please tell your wallet I am very sorry :-?. I always make sure to stock up on the larabars whenever there’s a sale… because my wallet isn’t very happy with me either!

  36. Michelle says:

    I have just found your site recently and as a vegan chocoholic it is heaven. This tower of deliciousness looks amazing, can’t wait to try it! I’m busting to try those Jocalat bars (for free if I’m very very lucky perhaps), they look delicious!

  37. Lindsay says:

    I LOVE Larabars! Never Jocalat kind though.

  38. Dawn says:

    Bring on the cake batter dessert pizza! Is it a pizzert?

  39. I can’t say that I even know what frozen hot chocolate IS.

  40. Stefanie says:

    It looks like a chilled hot chocolate. What ever it is, it looks good.

  41. I’d love to try Jocalat bars. They look super good but I’ve never even seen one.

  42. emily says:

    entering for the giveawayyy. :)

  43. Elle says:

  50. Sarah says:

  52. andrea says:

    I would love love love some jocalot bars :) And am already a huge fan on facebook! Can’t wait for upcoming chocolate recipes. Yummy!

  53. Sünne says:

    Frozen hot chocolate? You’re a genius! I only wish I could get almond milk (I think it’s your “milk” of choice, isn’t it?) for trying all of your recipes.

    I’m sooooo hoping I’ll win the Jocolat bars – Germany sucks at vegan bars (well, about 95 % of them seem to at least have honey if not dairy).

    1. Yeah, it is… but you can use any non-dairy milk for the recipe :).

  54. alex says:

    i love jocalat!

  55. Lindsey in CO says:

    Annika and I had cinnamon roll boatmeal for breakfast this morning and it was fantastic!!

    1. Ooo so excited! So glad you tried it :).

  56. Woo! Another giveaway! Can’t wait for your recipes :)

  57. Rebecca says:

    You’re making me crave chocolate even more :) I’d love to win the larabars-I’ve been wanting to try them :)

  58. Pam says:

    I too am looking forward to making a spring transition to my diet. I am craving ice cream and chocolat. My fav at the moment is make chocolate pudding mixed with canned pumpkin and vanilla soy milk. Enjoy your First day of Spring Saturday:)

  59. Gwen says:

  61. Lauren says:

  62. SB says:

    I’ve had a bazillion Laras but have never tried the Jocalats. They sound delicious!

  63. Arielle says:

    Looks amazing! I am loving our weather here in Germany, it’s not hot and it’s windy, but it’s very sunny 😀

  64. Linda says:

    I just found your blog and I love it!

  65. Emily says:

    I wanted to let you know that your blog has inspired me to venture into trying out my own blog AND to play more in the kitchen. I used to be such a recipe nut but you make food fun and creative as well as tasty.

  66. AHH i love the upcoming schedule! YAY count me IN for the giveaway! (can mail to my US address! ) WOOHOO!

  67. Pasuhi says:

    so many wonderful recipes on your blog…meeting all the needs of my raw sweet tooth. Would love to win the jocalat.

  68. Sara says:

    I loove chocolate and I love larabars! I really want to try out your method of warming up the jocalat bar in the microwave. I’ve done it with brownie cliff bars and it’s amazing so i can only imagine what a jocalat bar would taste like…

  69. Wow, I wish I lived at your house! you have the best looking desserts.

  70. Dana says:

    cant wait to learn what that new chocolate dessert is!

  71. I am truly happy that I found your site a few days ago. Although I absolutely love love love food I also have a passion for health and fitness and you’ve got some really creative ideas here. Can’t wait to try that Cake Batter Pizza!

  72. Stephanie says:

    I can’t wait to see the recipe!! :)

  73. Maxene says:

    mmm jocalat

  74. I’m all for the T-shirt. 😉
    p.s: I’m ”secretly” liking your FB page. Just don’t want anyone in ”real life” to know I’m an addict of someone called chocolate-covered Katie (jk…lol)


  75. Alexandra says:

    your desserts always look ridiculously/insanely amazing! also, i’d LOVE the jocalats.


  76. Michelle says:

    Yummm cake batter pizza sounds delicious.

    Have you ever tried making your own larabars? I’ve been reading about a lot of bloggers who are making their own but I haven’t found any recipes that I’ve really liked! I hear it’s a lot cheaper to make your own too.

    1. LOL oh goodness, yes, I’ve made my own Larabars. I call them fudge babies. Here’s a list of flavors:

  77. Alexandra says:

    also — i have to say — i’m glad it’s getting warmer too! but where i live, i would probably be running in shorts if it was the temperature of your winters! I would much prefer texas winters over chicago ones! hahaha but i’m a wuss when it comes to running in heat. if it tops 80, i just quit. i don’t mix well with heat! ( i really hope i don’t sound snooty! that wasn’t my intention of all. love you!)

    i ran in shorts too. :)

    1. I actually don’t like running in above 80 either! In the summers, I have to get up super-early, and even then I’m sometimes stuck running in the 80s. 60 and cloudy is perfect for me.

      Would you really run in shorts in Tx winters? It’s usually in the 20s in the winter mornings here, and sometimes gets as low as -5… but that’s probably a heat wave by Chicago standards, huh? 😉

      1. Alexandra says:

        oh my gosh, really?!??!?! that shows how much i know about climate — it’s the same around here, maybe just a tad colder. sorry (so much) for that then! so much for people moving to warm climates to retire — texas obv. isn’t a good choice on that note! i’m so sorry, my comment was completely inappropriate!


        1. LOL no, no one thinks Tx is ever cold! I didn’t either, until I moved here. But Dallas winter weather isn’t fun at all. One day it’s 20 and snowing, the next it’s 70. But sporadic 70-degree days aside, it’s usually somewhere between 10-45 degrees (and usually in the 20s in the am). This year, we had 9 inches of snow and a huge ice storm that closed school for a week!
          I think people associate Tx with “warm” because it’s so awful in the summers (up to 110)… so we have the worst of both worlds lol! Oh I guess I shouldn’t complain… I mean, it’s not as bad as Canadian winters!

  78. Laura says:

    i’d love to try these! thanks for passing them along to get more people hooked on healthy alternatives for junk food!

  79. Maya says:

    WANT! I love Larabars :)

  80. I would love to try Larabars. Whether I win or not, I’m on a mission to find and buy this weekend. I’ve seen enough of these little bars to know that they look awesome and I need to try them stat! And I already like you FB page!

    Can’t wait to read about your cake batter dessert pizza!!!

  81. McKella says:

    I’ve never had a Jocolat, but I love regular Larabars.
    We had some 60 degree weather in here in the Rocky Mountains this week, it was wonderful! I went outside for a run a few minutes ago but I didn’t make it to the end of the driveway before almost getting blown away. Super windy! Looks like an indoor yoga day.

  82. jen says:

    YUMMMMM!!!! :)

  83. Haley says:

    I am loving your raw milkshake recipes!

  84. Amber says:

    Getting a whole case in the mail would be the best mail day ever!!

  85. Tulika says:

    Can’t wait for that recipe!! I STILL haven’t tried Jocalat and would love to!

    PS: Liking your facebook page!

  86. sarah says:

  89. Adina Johnson says:

    I’d love to win some larabars, I’ve never gotten around to trying the Jocalat variety and am hoping to try them out! p.s Thank you so much for your voluminous oatmeal trick and oatmeal crepe pancakes! I’ve become addicted and can’t stop eating either of the two for breakfast and have had pancakes or oatmeal for breakfast straight for about 2 months now !

  95. krickit6 says:

She especially loved the snickerdoodle fudge babies :-) Thanks!!

    xoxo L

  103. Sarah says:

    So glad I followed you on twitter. Love all the chocolate. And loving new addiction to larabars. Will have to try this one… Good thing I’m hitting the store today. Wish I knew what I needed for the dessert.

    1. Lots and lots of chocolate ;).

      And for this particular one: nondairy milk, coconut milk, cocoa powder, and some ingredients you probably already have (like salt).

  104. Kristy says:

    The dessert looks fantastic! I found your blog this year and have been sharing it with everyone I know, lol. Love Jocolat Larabars!!

  105. I wish it wasnt raining here so I could enjoy some cold foods! That looks superrr good! God. I miss Texas. I wish I was going back to Austin for spring break :(

  106. Jessica says:

    Can’t wait to hear about the dessert pizza – yum!

  126. Bethany says:

    Oh I can’t wait for this upcoming recipe! I tried making a single serving blonde brownie the other day and well lets just say it was more like a muffin that really needed some sugar. Ick. I really just wanted a gooey blondie. I’ve seen some brownies floating around the blogsphere, but not a blondie. I thought that if I left out the cocoa powder and added more brown sugar it would be like a blondie, but no it was not. Guess when I come home next time I’ll experiment some more.

    1. If you ever do perfect it, I wanna know too!

  127. Angel says:

    Looking forward to reading that recipe. Looks sooooo good. Katie, I have so much fun reading your blog and trying many of your recipes! I try them as treats for me, and my kids end up wanting to try “my’ treats. : )

  128. Ann says:

    I’ve just recently found your blog, and it’s great! I will definitely be trying your cake batter recipe, I’ve been majorly craving some cake batter treats, and all the recipes I could found used boxed mix. Not on board with that.
    Oh, and of course, love Larabars too! Never tried the Jocolat flavor, but I’m sure I’d love it!

  129. Namaste Gurl says:

    I love jocalots— and you, Katie :-)

  130. jennifer h says:

  131. Marie says:

    I’m new to the site, from PBFingers, and can’t wait to try some of your desserts! I have never heard of that larabar flavor yet and would love to try it!

    1. Sorry, what do you mean? I’m confused by your comment.

      1. Melonie says:

        Well, I thought I had entered to win these a couple of weeks ago here, like… you had four boxes to give away? And I thought you had already given them all away! But perhaps I’m just not paying as much attention as I ought to be… lol

        1. Oh hehe no I did give them away. But I saved a fifth box (Larabar offered me five) for a new giveaway :).

  139. Jen Fabbri says:

    Thanks to your “babies” recipe I havn’t bought Larabars since. And I finally got some coconut butter Too! Your recipes don’t make me miss them at all! Now I’m anxious to taste the cake batter milkshake!

  185. Jen says:

    1. Maybe I’m just spoiled with Southern California weather, but 60 degrees it NOT warm! I would be covered in goosebumps if I went outside wearing shorts in 60 degree weather.
    2. That chocolate dessert is making me want whipped cream!
    3. I liked your Facebook page. Not because I want you to love me forever (although, I’d never turn down some chocolate-covered love), but because you’ve always been one of my favorite bloggers, ever since my vegan days. By the way, thank you for not being judgmental. You give vegans a good name. :)

    1. Gah! You are a sweetheart. But lol I’m jealous of your California ways ;).

  186. Andrea says:

    After reading your blog and others I tried my first ever Larabar! It was delish and I was so surprised how well it tasted. I am a huge chocoholic and I would love to try the chocolate ones! You are awesome girl!

  187. I didn’t know you had a facebook page! Though, the box on the right-hand side that says “Facebook Page” is kind of hard to miss 😉 I’m liking it! Oh-and I would like some Larabars too :) I’m totally addicted to the things!

  188. Erin says:

    Leaving a comment for chocolate Larabars. I’ll leave as many comments as you like until I get a chocolate Larabar : )

  189. Sarah says:

    Cannot wait for more cake batter…YUM ZO YUMZ!

  192. Lisa Fine says:

  193. Bryant says:

    That dessert looks incredible!!

  194. Brandae says:

  199. Julia says:

    I’m entering for the larabars!
    Since my food processor broke, and I haven’t been able to make fudge babies, I’ve been making cocoa-coconut butter stuffed medjools daily. Mmmm!

  203. Nikki says:

    I want to win but I am sure everyone else does too. How on earth do you choose a winner or do you just let a random generator do the dirty work?

  204. RS says:

    You always come up with such great, healthy, delicious looking recipes!

    Btw those Jocolat Cherry Larabars sound really good! It’s a shame I’ve never actually seen Jocolat bars in stores :/

  205. Tara says:

    Is it weird that I want the shirt more than the jocalat bars? Don’t get me wrong, I love jocalat bars, but there are more giveaways for food than shirts!!!
    I can’t wait for the cake batter pizzert!!

    1. LOL! But I know what you mean. Plus, you can’t find the shirts in stores.

  206. More jocalat? Ahh I still want to try them! and that cake batter milkshake yummmmm.

  207. I would love to try some Jocolat–I have never seen it in stores!

    btw already liked your Facebook page :) you are fun to follow!

    I love your site and all your amazing recipes. I’d love the Larabars as they’re quite expensive.

  211. Chelsea says:

    Hi Katie!

    It must be so odd but fun for you to read so many cheery comments from perfect strangers….I know it would make my day, as I’m sure it makes yours. :-) I stumbled upon your blog by accident, and at a time when I desperately needed encouragement to be confident and free in my dietary choices and needs. I have fallen in love with your “babies”, have just ordered agar agar flakes (for whipped creeeeeeeeeeeeam!!!!!), and though I usually hate bananas (except the rare perfectly-yellow-with-bit-of-green occasion), my curiosity got the better of me and I attempted the coconut banana butter. I ate the whole thing. :::happy sigh:::
    Thanks for your inspiration, fun encouraging spirit, and treats that make happy satisfied foodies. :-)

    1. Aw thank you, Chelsea! Yes, it definitely brightens my day to know that people (like you!) are so kind/caring as to take time out of their days to leave such sweet comments!

  212. Allison says:

    Hi! I just stumbled across your blog a week or two ago and have become addicted to fudge babies in that short while. I have been keeping my eyes peeled for Jocalats to try, but no luck yet! Maybe I’ll win a case? *fingers crossed*

  213. Anne says:

    cake batter dessert=HEAVENLY.

  214. Rosalind says:

    OOh creamy cold desserts! Nothing goes better with warmer weather :)

  215. J says:

    Ooh I really hope I win this time around! I’ve been making banana ice cream quite a bit lately and I bet pieces of these bars would be great in it! Also just bought agar so I can make more of your recipes!

  216. Haylee says:

    Love your recipes!! and would LOVE Jocalat bars!

    1. Woah, um weird? 😕 Yeah, that’s me… but I can guarantee whoever owns that blog didn’t ask me to model for her at the grocery store!

  217. Claire says:

    Id love to win this. Thank you!

  218. I want Jocolat because it reminds me of Jocko, the walrus from 50 First Dates. :)

  219. Vegyogini says:

    I would love to win!

  220. Rachel says:

    please come over my house and make me smoothies? hahah and bring larabars as well! i rely on those so much during classes!

  221. Mel says:

    I need to search around for whatever recipe you use for that whipped cream stuff. Do you make that or is it store bought? Looks awesome! I have read your blog for a while and enjoy your recipes so much! Especially the “babies”. I have to control making those too often or they mysteriously jump in my mouth and make my pants too tight! :)

    Love your blog!

    1. Hey Mel! Haha the babies mysteriously pop into my mouth too! Especially early in the morning when I’m trying to get out the door to run. Hmmm… 😉
      The whipped cream in the photo is soyatoo, but I do have two whipped cream recipes. Here’s the soy-free version:
      And if you’d rather have the tofu version, it’s here:

  222. Winning the Larabars would be awesome!

  223. Lot-O-Choc says:

    Glad its getting warmer where you are, its still freeezing in the UK!! Love the sound of the cake batter dessert pizza too, yum yum!

  224. Jen says:

    I just bought my 1st box of Larabars because of you!

  225. shannonmarie says:

  226. Lindsay@Brownies For Brunch says:

  229. Samantha says:

    Why are Lara bars soooooo good?!? Love them!

  230. Teresa says:

    Frozen hot chocolate! That’s amazing! I’m excited for this recipe.

    So glad you got to run in shorts today. While it does get *cold* here in So. Cal., I’m super fortunate that it’s never really so cold I have to wear pants. Just a light jacket, which is good since I hate running in pants!

  231. I swear your mind is a bottomless pit of creativity! How do you keep busting out with all these amazing recipes?! I bow down to you my chocolate covered queen!! 😉

  232. Danielle says:

    Still haven’t tried Larabars (they’re a bit expensive!). Would love to win some!

  233. Laura says:

    my latest regret: not reading your blog sooner! I love making and eating your desserts because I can write them all off as healthy and therefore enable my chocolate addiction :)

  234. BroccoliHut says:

    I am loving the warmer weather too!
    The only thing that could make life better? A box of Jocolat Laras:)

  235. joslyn says:

    I'm actually also excited for your upcoming savory recipe.
    All of your desserts and sweets are so healthy and tasty, so I'm really curious what your new savor recipe will be like. . .
    Can't wait! 😀

  238. kelsey says:

    wooooooh that looks insane delicious!!

    wow. no words.

  240. Kathleen says:

    I really love your blog. I’ve been recovering from an eating disorder and it’s been such a help to me to feel good about myself. You put a smile on my face.
    I completely agree with you about the warm weather. I’m so happy that it’s finally spring.
    I love Larabars, but I’ve yet to try the Jocolat. Thanks for the giveaway, Katie.

  241. YUM!!! That looks like a frozen hot chocolate (my ex-favorite Dairy Queen dessert!)

    1. I didn’t know dairy queen made those! But lol yup, that’s what this is!

  242. Jessica says:

    Looks soo good can’t wait for the recipe!!! And totally love chocolate and larabars….so the two combined? mmmmm!!

  243. kathryn says:

    Is that some fantabulously healthified hot cocoa?!
    I must know 😀

  244. Sarah A says:

    Oh goodness. Jocolat Larabars are simply the best. I have to drive 55 minutes to the closest place that sells them (Whole Foods) which is too far with gas prices on the rise!

  245. rose says:

    would love to try these jocalats!

  246. Sukee says:

  254. Carmen says:

    Hi Katie,

    I’ve been following your blog for a few weeks now, and have loved every single post… it’s my favorite “I don’t want to study” pastime. :) I was putting off commenting (mostly because you get so many comments, it seems like it would be overwhelming! But, I would like some Larabars, and I would definitely like to tell you how inspiring your food is.

    P.S. So jealous of your 60 degree weather. Here in Boston it’s supposed to snow tomorrow. Enjoy for us northeasterners!

    1. Oh Carmen, I’m so glad you commented. I know I get a lot of comments, but every one means a ton to me! Just knowing that people take time out of their busy lives to leave encouraging words to others really makes me smile!

      And lol my sister lives in Boston… crazy girl loves the cold!

  255. Bryana says:

    That dessert looks super-duper yummy. I can’t wait to see what it is!

  256. nik says:

    That looks heavenly! A cocoa-flaked coconut-fluffed chocolate smoothie-liscious treat! How can I get one?!

    1. I’m hoping to have the recipe up early this week!

  257. Sarah says:

    I love you more than I love Jocalats, but I still would love some Jocalat.
