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 […]

Chia Pudding

Creamy, dreamy chia pudding! This quick and easy chia pudding recipe is an absolutely fantastic source of fiber, protein, iron, and calcium. It also happens to be completely delicious!! Many years ago, after visiting an amusement park, I got it into my head that I needed my mother to buy me an invisible dog. If […]

Dark Chocolate Emerald Truffles

Thank you for all of the well-wishes on my What’s happening in my life post. I know my posts were a bit sporadic while I was in the process of moving, but starting next week I have BIG PLANS for the blog. (You’ll hear more about these big plans soon!) Meanwhile, one of my goals for this […]

Candy Cane Pudding Pie

We elves try to stick to the four main food groups. Candy. Candy canes. Candy corns… And syrup! Representing three of Buddy the Elf’s four main food groups hopefully means this pudding pie would earn Will Ferrell’s stamp of approval. You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee pudding pie! Great job, everybody! It’s […]

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Homemade butternut squash soup – comforting deliciousness in a bowl!   The summer before my junior year of high school (it seems so long ago), I took a road trip to visit colleges along the East Coast of the United States. One of the stops was Cornell University, located in the small town of Ithaca, […]

Healthy Pumpkin Pie

Healthy pumpkin pie!! When you move around a lot as a child, family becomes extremely important. You learn to rely on each other whilst navigating a new city or country, making new friends, and as you begin a whole new chapter of life together. Considering how many times I’ve moved in my life, it should be no […]

Homemade Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Pops

These pudding pops are like eating a York Peppermint Patty straight from the freezer. True story: It’s been so hot these past few weeks that yesterday I finally decided to bring the popsicle molds back from their post-summer home in the garage. However I probably should have looked at the weather report first… Midday the […]

Peanut Butter Biscuits

Has the weather gotten cold yet where you are? These soft and fluffy peanut butter biscuits are the perfect comfort food for any cold October morning. Dip them in hot maple syrup, spread on some melted coconut butter, or sandwich the biscuits with raspberry jelly and even more peanut butter… They also make a terrific portable snack and are great […]

Avocado Smoothie

Currently craving this creamy avocado smoothie. Suddenly, I cannot get enough avocado. I’m craving it in avocado smoothies, avocado frozen yogurt, avocado chocolate shakes, and am even just scraping it straight into my mouth. This is really strange… for most of my life I loathed avocado, despite giving my best effort to like the heart-healthy […]

Mint Chocolate Nanaimo Bars

New York City is home to a critically-acclaimed restaurant called Dirt Candy, whose menu boasts some truly unique dishes: popcorn pudding, celery cheesecake, jalapeno hush puppies, mint chocolate nanaimo bars with a base of green peas… You can all breathe a sigh of relief, because I did NOT use green peas in my mint chocolate […]

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Better known as Chipwiches! The first time I ever tried a Chipwich was at a Texas Rangers baseball game, and I remember thinking, “Two cookies, chocolate chips, and ice cream all in the same wrapper? This must be the best dessert EVER!” I pretty much still believe that :). (Today’s recipe is a raw version… if […]

Maple Caramel Brownie Ice Cream Sundaes

Two-ingredient caramel sauce… Yesterday was the birthday of a close friend, and when she asked me to make my Chocolate Fudge Zucchini Brownies, I came over with the works: frosted brownies, ice cream, and caramel sauce for a small gathering of friends. Maybe “gathering of friends” is the wrong phrase. It sounds so formal… like we […]
