Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake Ball

My obsession with World Cup soccer began in 1994. I was seven years old and fell in love with the Italian World Cup team… more specifically, I fell in love with their star player, Roberto Baggio, and decided I was going to marry him someday. (My Italian grandmother was immensely happy to hear this.) For […]

5 Ingredient Avocado Fudge Bites

I have puppy fever. Every time I leave the apartment, I am bombarded with puppies! Big puppies, little puppies, young puppies, old puppies. (All dogs are puppies to me, no matter their age.) And it makes me wonder if I should get a puppy… (Above, Henry in his thundershirt and Batman in his winter coat […]

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These homemade chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are serious comfort food! Back in high school, I took a summer job one year at a vet’s office and was initially very excited about it. Someone actually wanted to pay me to play with puppies?! Hello, dream job! Or so I thought… Working in the back room on […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Mini Muffins

As I hinted in my Chocolate Guinness Brownies post, there are probably quite a few things about me that, even in seven years of blogging, have never come up and might surprise some people! For instance, I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned on here how much I love to dance—any kind of dancing; I love […]

Healthy Makeover: Entenmann’s Chocolate Covered Mini Donuts

Just 35 calories each… including the frosting! Entenmann’s Mini Chocolate Cake Donuts have been on my “healthy makeover” list for a long time. Growing up, they were always one of my favorite junk foods, and on more than one occasion I tried to sneak them into my mother’s grocery cart when she wasn’t looking. Sadly, those store-bought […]

Cookies & Cream Pudding Pops

Growing up, my sister and I went through a phase where we decided it would be completely fantastic to own a pickup truck. We hatched this brilliant (or so we thought) idea on an uncomfortably-humid Philadelphia summer’s day, and our logic was that the back of the truck could be filled with water, turning it into […]

Red Velvet Brownies

I am one of those people who initially resists change. But when I finally dip my toe into the water am thrown into the water against my will, I swim with a vengeance, making up for lost time. Thus was the case when I first joined facebook (a year after everyone else), when I got […]

Tiramisu Pancakes

Thank you to everyone who likes The Chocolate-Covered Katie Facebook Page. On Saturday, it reached 100,000 facebook likes, and I can’t even find words for how much your support means to me. THANK YOU!! There will be a giant “thank you” giveaway up next week. But today I want to show my appreciation with Tiramisu Pancakes. High […]

The Pink Energizer Smoothie

Last week, I did something I was never able to do while living in Texas: Pack a bag, hop on a train, and find myself in New York City less than 3 hours later. I spent the week in New York, the weekend in Philadelphia, and was back in my own apartment by Monday morning. […]

Mounds Bar Chocolate Coconut Pudding Cups

For more than half of my fourth grade existence, I went through a phase where I was completely obsessed with Jello pudding cups. Every day, I’d find a different flavor packed into my lunchbox—anything from chocolate, to butterscotch, to cheesecake, to classic vanilla. I loved them all. Today’s recipe reminds me of those Jello pudding […]

Cherry Blossom Cupcakes

Spring is (finally) in the air. I think. Maybe. For this week, anyway. After hearing so much about the famous Washington, D.C. cherry blossoms, it’s exciting to finally get to actually see them. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy for Spring and the end of waking up to snow every other morning for […]

Nutella Granola Bars

Sadly, many granola bars on the market these days are nothing more than glorified candy bars, with as much sugar as a Snickers and a long list of ingredients you can’t even pronounce. But not only is it possible to make a naturally-sweetened granola bar recipe that actually IS healthy, you might end up liking them so […]

Frosted Mint Chocolate Double Layer Cake

Would you ever guess this decadent double layer cake is healthy? That it’s not completely over-the-top loaded with oil, sugar, calories, and fat? Or that each slice has over 5 grams of fiber, 15% of the RDA for iron, and contains healthy MCFAs? Or that the luxurious frosting can be completely sugar-free? And most importantly… Yes, […]

Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

Yes, chocolate chip quinoa cookies! When I was 5 years old, I earned the nickname Cookie Monster from my grandfather, after he caught me repeatedly sneaking chocolate chip cookies from the dining room table. I wasn’t tall enough to actually see the table… But that doesn’t mean I didn’t know what was up there! Fast […]

Cookie Dough Brownies

When I was really young, I had an imaginary friend. His name was Zozo, and he enjoyed getting me into trouble. Some of his antics included drawing on the walls of my room with permanent marker, telling the babysitter I had no bedtime, pulling my little sister’s hair, and sneaking so many tastes of cookie […]
