Pecan Pie Cookie Dough Balls

Side note: Yes, I’ve gone back to the old blog header. This change isn’t permanent. Currently I’m working with a web designer the most patient person in the world to completely overhaul the site’s layout, making it much more user-friendly (including a print option for the recipes). Hopefully it will all be completed soon. New […]

Healthy Eggnog!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way Come July, I’ll still be drinking this sweet Christmas-y shake, because it is that good. Might need a new song, though. Let’s go surfin now, everybody’s learning how, come on and safari with meeeeeee… Or not. Maybe I’ll just stick to the Christmas carols in July as […]

5 Minute Microwave Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles you can make in minutes… They can even be made in the microwave. For some reason, I’d always been under the impression that preparing homemade truffles is difficult and time-consuming. Plus, most recipes call for heavy cream, which I can’t eat as a vegan. But there are ways to make them using canned coconut milk, […]

Pumpkin Frosting Shots

I’m sure you saw it coming. It’s pumpkin “whipped cream” frosting! Ridiculously delicious on cupcakes. Ridiculously delicious on pumpkin pie. And it also happens to be seriously crazily ridiculously delicious eaten straight off the spoon. Shown above, on top of these: Healthy Chocolate Cupcakes. The only thing better than a chocolate cupcake topped with homemade […]

How to make your own White Chocolate Chips

White chocolate is not really chocolate. Just like tomatoes aren’t really vegetables. Lentils aren’t really beans. Koalas aren’t really bears… Life’s confusing, isn’t it? Sometimes people are surprised to find not a single white chocolate recipe on this entire chocolate-covered blog. White chocolate has just never been my favorite thing… because I want it to taste […]

Suddenly, people will perceive you to be ten twenty two hundred times more awesome than before. They will chant your name, ask for your phone number, propose marriage.

How to make Jack-o-Lantern Oranges

Orange is the new Black Pumpkin I kind of want to throw a Halloween brunch now, just for the excuse to make and serve these adorable fruit-filled oranges again. The theme could be “Monsters in Pajamas” and everyone would come as his or her favorite monster dressed in pajamas. If only my friends were cool […]

Chocolate “Protein” Milkshake

It’s the chocolate protein shake that tastes like a chocolate milkshake… And because there’s actually no protein powder in the recipe, you don’t get that chalky aftertaste present in most chocolate protein shakes. You just feel like you’re drinking a chocolate milkshake. Yes, a chocolate milkshake. Hopefully I didn’t worry you with my last post. […]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie

I need to tell you something… and it’s pretty shocking. You might want to sit down for this. There’s more to life than chocolate. I didn’t believe it either, until I tried this rich and creamy no-bake peanut butter pie. It’ll only take one bite to convince you: There is life outside Planet Chocolate. For my […]

Frozen S’mores on a Stick

This is how we make s’mores in Texas, where it’s much too hot for campfires:                                   No, not really. Really, I made these frozen s’mores pops for a friend’s Labor Day party, for all the kids in attendance. Someone […]

No-Bake Coconut Crack Bars

I’ve FINALLY made a Pinterest page! I’d love you forever if you want to follow: The Chocolate-Covered Pinterest Page Anyways, on to today’s post… These no-bake bars are completely addictive. And you can make them in LESS THAN 10 minutes! As if I needed yet another addictive no-bake recipe on the blog. Oh but one […]

Green Lemonade

The healthiest drink in the world? Lemonade stands will never be the same. I don’t think I ever sold lemonade as a kid. I ran a cookie stand and a hot chocolate stand, and my friend and I once sold flowers we picked from her mom’s garden. (Not a good idea; nobody bought flowers, and […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Balls

You know you want one.                     Or two. Or four hundred and fifty four. Maybe not four hundred and fifty four. Then you’d get a stomachache, and that’s no fun. 😕 On the other hand, the stomachache might be worth it. For chocolate and peanut butter? […]

Healthier Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty

This recipe tastes similar to a Wendy’s vanilla Frosty. It’s like one of those thick vanilla milkshakes you’d find at a fast-food restaurant… but without all the empty calories and sugar to make you feel sluggish. The recipe actually came about by accident: I was working on a Tiramisu ice cream, and when I stopped […]

Peanut Butter Covered Strawberries

Forget chocolate. Okay, no wait. I didn’t say that! You didn’t hear that! Don’t ever ever ever forget chocolate. Never ever. NEVER!!! But maybe… Maybe just put the chocolate aside for today (or for an hour; however long you can last), and try out this peanut butter twist on the classic chocolate-covered strawberries: They’re like […]
