It’s triple chocolate mint cookie time! Last year I made these in jar form for some of my delightful co-workers. A couple of weeks ago one of them (she’s awesome and so hard working, I might add) asked for the recipe. Totally expecting it to be on the blog, I searched. What? Not there? How did I miss that? So, here I am, more than 14 months later, sharing this sweet and minty recipe. Let’s bake up!
box of devils food cake
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
1 cup of mint chocolate, chopped (I used Aero Peppermint)
1/2 cup of salted butter
First, in a large bowl, mix the first four ingredients. Then, add in your eggs and melt the butter in the microwave. Mix in the eggs, then quickly add in the butter. Stir well until the dough is sticky.
Roll into small, 1 inch cookies. These triple chocolate mint cookies are addicting – especially if you like mint chocolate chip ice cream. Man, I wish they were gluten free.
Bake at 365 for 7-9 minutes. The cookie will start to crack and you know you’re good.
Eat up and enjoy.
You could make these triple chocolate cookies with anything, 1 cup of skor or 1 cup of butterscotch chips – they would be delicious, too. Happy Valentine’s Day. See you again soon.
Time for more sweets. These chocolate tahini brownies were in the latest edition of Bon Appetit and they are good. Oh, and gluten free. I modified the original recipe from Bon Appetit for two reasons – I wanted a richer chocolate flavour and I didn’t have any brown sugar in my pantry. This recipe is delicious and tasty. Worth trying. Let’s bake up!
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 oz each of semi sweet, unsweetened and dark chocolate
3 tablespoons coconut oil
4 tablespoons tahini
2 large eggs
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of white sugar
1 teaspoon of molasses, salt and vanilla
1 tablespoon agave syrup
The dark chocolate will add some richness and the molasses is because I didn’t have brown sugar. Adapting is key and this recipe is a keeper!
Set your oven to 350 degrees. Then, line a small baking dish with parchment paper.
Sift the cornstarch and cocoa powder and set aside. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, mix the three chocolates, oil, and 1 tablespoon of tahini. Mix until smooth.
Time for the mixer – beat the eggs and sugar for about 4 minutes. Then, add in the molasses, salt and vanilla. Mix one minute. Add in the chocolate mixture (make sure it’s cooled a bit – you don’t want to cook the eggs). Combine for about 1 minute. Next, add in the dry ingredients and mix until blended.
Pour the batter into the small lined pan. It’ll be thick, so be sure to get every last drop. In a small dish mix the remaining tahini and agave together. Dollop on top of the brownie and use a skewer to make some swirls. I went back and forth about 12 times to get these perfect swirls.
Bake about 23-27 minutes, take out of the oven and let them set for about 10. Then, place on a cutting board for an hour, then cut and eat.
Rich and tasty – and not that much sugar.
Don’t they look so good?
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a great Wednesday. Bake up if you have time, or just make time!
Tomorrow is the Super Bowl! Perfect timing for this loaded queso. It’s hearty, full of delicious flavours and fun to eat. Let’s get cooking.
1/2 pound of ground turkey
1 tablespoon of grape seed oil
1 1/2 tablespoon of Tex Mex spice
3/4 cup of beer (I used ginger beer)
1/2 cup of jalapeño cheddar cheese
16 oz Velveeta
14 oz can of tomatoes
1 can of black beans
1/4 cup of cilantro
First, in a large skillet cook the ground turkey in the grape seed oil with the Tex Mex spice.
Next, add in the ginger beer. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add in the jalapeño cheese and half of the Velveeta until it’s melted. Then add in the can of tomatoes (juices and all) and the rest of the Velveeta. Mix until melted.
Lastly, add in the black beans (rinse first) and cook for about 6-8 minutes. Then, top with cilantro and eat.
Eat up with chips or celery and enjoy the game!
This recipe is so tasty and quite filling. For other game day recipes check out Super Bowl Eats 2017 and Super Bowl Eats 2016. Enjoy the game tomorrow – let’s hope the Eagles take home their first ring.
