No-Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

Pin It!

These bars might be your new favorite snack. Peanut butter snack bars! Salty and sweet, these no-bake bars taste even better than peanut butter pretzel Luna Bars. But they confuse me: How can a recipe with absolutely no chocolate taste so good? It just doesn’t make sense. You know what else confuses me? Moles. And protons and neutrons […]

My Favorite Easter Desserts

Pin It!

From carrot cake to chocolate… I love the Easter season for many reasons: pastel colors, adorable baby animals (bunnies! sheep! chicks!), the symbolism of renewal and rebirth (both the Christian significance and the rebirth of flowers, wildlife, and springtime—the word Easter is derived from the goddess of spring, Eastre.) And Easter-themed foods: chocolate, carrot cake, chocolate, chocolate. […]

Coconut Cookie Chicks

Pin It!

EAT ME! Do it! If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend this macaroon recipe. I know; you’re probably rolling your eyes at me because I highly recommend a lot of things. But that’s because every single recipe published on my site has been tested and approved by many people, not just me (and not just vegans or health-food eaters, either). I […]

Carrot Cake In A Mug

Pin It!

Carrot Cake In A Mug –  Raise your hand if you like carrot cake. Jump up and down if you’d like a single-serving carrot cake in a mug that takes less than 5 minutes to make and is so healthy you can eat the entire recipe in one sitting. Yes, you really can. Of course you’ll want frosting. […]

Homemade Chocolate Bunnies

Pin It!

Look! I made chocolate bunnies! Shhh… they’re actually healthy chocolate bunnies. Here, let me introduce you. This is Simon: Yes, I named him. Right before I bit his head off. Morbid. 😕 My recipe: Click here for the recipe. Oh, and the guy in the middle is not made of white chocolate. (Blech! White chocolate!) […]

Why I’m no longer a vegan

Pin It!

I like burgers too much. Mmmmm burgers… But wait! Of course today is April Fool’s Day, and the burgers are actually whoopie pies. Mmmm chocolate burgers. Who needs meat when you can have chocolate??   Hamburger Whoopie Pies (makes 12 circles) Based on these: S’mores Whoopie Pies. 1/4 cup milk of choice scant 1 tsp vinegar […]

Behind the Scenes

Pin It!

You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. So, I was thinking… In my future recipe posts, would you be interested in seeing more photos of the process, as opposed to just the final product? Would that be at all helpful? I’m warning you: the recipe-process photos won’t be pretty. I usually cook in my very tiny and […]

Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs

Pin It!

Healthy homemade Reeses peanut butter eggs that are vegan and gluten-free?!?! EDIT: As of right now, the Chocolate Covered Katie Cookbook is the #1 Amazon Best Seller for dessert cookbooks and #4 on the Best Seller list for cookbooks overall. I am forever grateful to everyone who has been spreading the word! Dear Easter Bunny, I want […]

Special Diets: Eating Out

Pin It!

Lunch Date! Yesterday, I had lunch with my friend Sarah. I’m often asked by people on special diets (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.) for advice on going out to eat with others who don’t follow any specific diet. As far as being a vegetarian or vegan, it’s actually pretty east once you get the hang of […]

Nutella Fudge Pops

Pin It!

Oh fudge! Melty Nutella Fudge Pops. Yesterday, I took care of the Fairy Dust Sisters. Now, whenever I watch the girls, they make me call them by their fairy princess names. And the first thing they always ask is, “What are we making today??” Since it was so warm outside, and since little kids seem […]

Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting

Pin It!

Creamy healthy cream cheese frosting… It’s both fluffier and creamier than Pillsbury cream cheese. And if you’re counting calories: you could eat the entire recipe for just 200 calories. Who wouldn’t want to eat an entire container’s worth of frosting in one sitting? For more healthy frosting recipes: Over 50 Healthy Frosting Recipes But the following […]

My Coffee-Flavored Recipes

Pin It!

** My blog was being very grouchy yesterday.** The home page decided it would be fun to vanish for a few hours, taking my header and all the recipes with it. Not so fun for anyone trying to access a specific recipe, and I am so sorry about the inconvenience. With the help of Servint […]

Banana-Split Cheesecake Fudge Bites

Pin It!

Bite me. Don’t mind if I do. The following cheesecake recipe came about  a few mornings ago, after I found myself with just half a banana that needed to be used up. (I hate wasting food.) I used the other in a favorite recipe: PB Breakfast Pudding. So I threw the remaining banana into my […]

Super Sleepy Sweet Potatoes

Pin It!

Four hours. That’s about how much sleep I got on Monday, when it poured buckets all night long. My roommate apparently didn’t sleep through the storms either, so we decided to have an early dinner last night and then call it a day. As I mentioned in a previous post, Emily gave up meat for […]

Peanut Butter Magic Shell

Pin It!

Do you believe in magic? Mermaids. Dragons. Ghosts and fairies… And creamy vanilla ice cream, draped in a coat of liquid peanut butter. Magic never tasted so good. Luckily, unlike the mermaids and the fairies, peanut butter magic shell is very real… and very, very delicious! Shown above, on top of this recipe: Four-Ingredient Ice […]

Chocolate Silk Smoothie

Pin It!

This is one thick smoothie… It’s so thick you might want to skip the glass… and use a spoon! Chocolate soup? Meeting my vegetable requirements for the day is never a problem. (Sometimes I have to make sure I don’t get too many!) Therefore I don’t normally seek out fortified products like powdered vegetable drink mixes. […]
