Dear Chocolate-Covered Diary…

Pin It!

Chocolate-Covered Everything!

Did you know today is National “Chocolate-Covered Everything” Day?

I’d planned on posting a spice cake recipe today… but who wants to see spice cake on a day meant for chocolate?

Saluting all things chocolate-covered…

Homemade Luna Bars

The best part of these homemade Luna Bars is their crazy-delicious chocolate coating. Feel free to add mini chocolate chips to the bars if you wish. There’s no such thing as too much chocolate.

32C Chocolate Cups

Really, you can fill them with anything—peanut butter, almond butter, banana… The important part is that they’re covered in chocolate. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Brownie Batter Dip

This recipe, itself, isn’t covered in chocolate. But by dipping foods (or your fingers!) into the decadent chocolate dip, you can cover everything else in chocolate!

Chocolate-Covered Cupcakes

They may look like those famous cupcakes sold at grocery stores. However, these are much healthier—with an incredible chocolate glaze. Emphasis on incredible.

Chocolate-Pumpkin Cookies

Sweet pumpkin filling, covered in chocolate. I think “covered in chocolate” might just be my favorite phrase in the whole-wide, chocolate-covered world.

Ice Cream Bon Bons

A healthy alternative to the ice cream bon bons sold in stores. That’s not really ice cream in the centers… but it is really chocolate on the outside. Accept no substitutions.

Brownie Batter Pancakes

If there were such a thing as “chocolate overload” this photo might be it. Luckily, I don’t think chocolate overload exists. So no worries.

    Hooray! That is awesome (that is is National Chocolate Covered Day AND that you hit 10,000 fans!) I need to find a way to get some chocolate into my day. I might just eat some of an Endangered Species bar! I am actually celebrating a second Thanksgiving tonight! Weird, I know. My best friend’s mom was in the hospital over Thanksgiving and it is her favorite holiday meal, so we are surprising her today! I am about to bake another vegan pumpkin pie…maybe I will mix in some chocolate chips in my piece…

    I’d eat shoe leather if it was covered in chocolate.
    But today I think I’ll stick with dark chocolate-covered peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s.
