Healthy Caramel Popcorn

No corn syrup here! This is a healthy caramel popcorn recipe without corn syrup. It’s salty, sweet, and just plain good!

(Yes, I bought […]

Homemade Reddi-Wip Whipped Cream

The great wall of healthy whipped cream. Shown above, on top of my Crustless Pumpkin Pie – (reader favorite recipe). Don’t laugh… but as a kid, squirt whipped cream was one of my favorite foods.

Pecan Pie Cookie Dough Balls

Side note: Yes, I’ve gone back to the old blog header. This change isn’t permanent.

Hopefully it will all be completed soon. New […]

German Chocolate Cake for One

The cake above is meant for just one person. Yes, you’re really supposed to eat the whole thing at once. Don’t argue. Arguing will get you nowhere. Whereas not arguing will get you… cake! Double-layer chocolate cake, with gooey caramel-coconut-pecan frosting in each and every decadent bite. The cake part is just my recipe for […]

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.

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?

White chocolate has just never been my favorite thing… because I want it to taste […]

Healthy Butterfingers!

Healthy Butterfingers! Candy bars that defy all logic. The homemade Butterfingers have that exact same toffee-like crunch of store-bought Butterfinger bars… yet these are whole-grain, high in iron, and completely free of high-fructose corn syrup. Okay, so that’s more than two words. Concision has never been my strong suit. We used to play the quiet game […]

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 […]

Reeses Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups

Edit: There is now a pumpkin board on the Chocolate Covered Katie Pinterest Page! Some things in life are obvious. Chocolate goes well with peanut butter? Obvious. Chocolate goes well with pumpkin? Obvious. Chocolate goes well with pretty much anything? Obviously obvious. So what happens when you combine all three—pumpkin, chocolate, and peanut butter—together into […]
