One Minute Chocolate Cake in a Mug

THANK YOU!!! On Saturday morning, I clicked the Foodbuzz twitter profile, fully expecting to see someone else as the winner of the “best baking blog” award. I never thought I’d see this: Best baking and pastry blog: @ChocCoveredKt My heart is filled with so much gratitude right now, towards everyone who took time out of their busy […]

Healthy Graham Crackers

Healthy Graham Crackers… perfect for s’mores! The first time I ever heard of a s’more was during a girl-scout camping trip. The troop leaders handed us each a skewered marshmallow and told us to have at it. “What? You actually want me to stick the marshmallow into the white-hot flames?” Yes, yes they did. And […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Mmmmmmmmm polka dots. Chocolate polka dots. Lots and lots of chocolate polka dots. The best kind of polka dots. For a work meeting yesterday, my roommate decided to bring a banana bread recipe she’d seen on my blog. I told her we should definitely make two, because banana bread makes the house smell so good… […]

Pumpkin Cookie Dough Dip

Just try to keep your spoon out of this: Oh forget it. Resistance is futile. I made this pumpkin cookie dough dip for a Halloween party on Saturday. But it almost didn’t get there. My roommate and I had a difficult time taking the dip out of the food processor… we kept stealing more and more […]

Hot Apple Crumble Bars

Hot apple crumble. Packed into a delicious bar. They are guaranteed to quickly disappear at parties. I’ve done raspberry, mixed berry, and cherry pie versions, but the apple version for last night’s Halloween party might be the best flavor yet. Although I’d first planned to bring my Healthy Chocolate-Chip Cookies, I wanted to make something festive and had […]

Monster Mint-Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Roar. My husband, the monster: Did you know I was once married to Frankenstein? It’s true! Long before Bella Swan made it fashionable to marry a ghoul, Frankie and I had a one-night stand. I dressed up as the Bride of Frankenstein for Halloween and created a stuffed monster “husband” to carry around all night. […]

It’s a Chocolate Pumpkin Pizookie!

A giant, gooey cookie. Above, topped with my Homemade Vanilla Ice Milk. It’s a pumpkin pie pizookie. Emily (my roommate) and I invited a bunch of friends over for a housewarming party Saturday night, and I wanted to christen the new oven in style. So I figured it was a great time to test out […]

The Candy Corn Milkshake

I love Halloween. Haunted Houses, carving pumpkins, Creepy Carrot Cakes… I have freakishly-strong nails that grow like weeds, so one year I painted them to look like candy corns. They looked so awesome! (Of course, just one day after all my hard work, my pinkie nail decided to break. Eh, what can ya do?) This […]

Homemade Luna Bars!

Since beginning this blog, I’ve created many flavors of Homemade Larabars. But when, out of curiosity one day, I googled homemade Luna bars, I was surprised to find zero relevant results. Really? No one had made these yet? It was definitely time to change that. I don’t usually buy Luna bars, but every now and […]

Gluten Free Chocolate Lace Cookies

Gluten Free Cookies Have you ever thought about trying a gluten-free diet? Like Atkins in the 90s, the idea of “going gluten-free” has swept America (and beyond). If you haven’t tried a gluten-free diet, chances are you know at least one person who has. There are people who adopt this diet out of necessity (Celiacs). […]

Chocolate Cookies… filled with Pumpkin Pie!

Repeat after me: Y-U-M. Now repeat a few more times. Yum yum yum. Yum yum. Yum. These cookies are soft, rich, chocolatey… and filled with pumpkin pie! Oh my. If you own the cookbook, Vegan Cookies take over your Cookie Jar, you’ll probably remember one of the yummiest-looking cookies in the book: their peanut butter […]

Chocolate “Banana Split” Butter

Woah. It’s like a banana split in a jar. Crazy Nut Butter Flavors I once posted a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Peanut Butter. At the end of that post, I asked for your nut butter flavor ideas. One reader (hi Kara!) went crazy with the question, offering all sorts of fun flavor ideas, from carrot […]

Fat Free Banana Bread

Fat free banana bread that does not taste fat-free. It is so soft and buttery. I’m trying really hard not to say “moist” because I know everyone hates that word! This bread actually wasn’t supposed to be fat-free. In fact, I was quite upset upon discovering—midway through preparing the recipe—only about a teaspoon’s worth of coconut […]

Hot Apple Pie Pancakes

Apple Pie Pancakes… à la mode. Yes, that’s right: à la mode. At least once in your life, try topping these pancakes with My Favorite Homemade Ice Cream Recipe. Everything is better à la mode. No exceptions. Do you ever eat breakfast foods for dessert? Pancakes, oats, or even the popular Breakfast Pizza?

Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Muffin (single-serving!)

Side note: How fun is that fork?! Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Muffin (can be gluten-free!) 3 tbsp flour (See directions below, for flour notes) 1 tbsp canned pumpkin […]
