Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

One final zucchini recipe before summer leaves us for good.

Three kinds of chocolate (Nutella, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips) make the zucchini hard to spot in this delicious quick bread. But the added vegetable helps to keep the loaves soft and moist. And it lets you pretend this is a healthy treat.

Chocolate Cookies & Cream Cake

Chocolate Cookies & Cream  Cake

Even with all of the new and exciting Oreo flavors that are released each year, there is something about the classic cookies and cream flavor that can’t be topped. Especially when they top a 3-layer chocolate cake filled with thick and delicious Oreo frosting!

When making this frosting, do NOT make it ahead of time. The Oreo crumbs become very soft in the frosting and will completely mix in if the frosting is left sitting too long (giving you gray frosting instead of flecked cookies & cream).

It is also important when frosting this cake to do a thin crumb coat first. It will keep you from overmixing the frosting and make smoothing the frosting much easier and faster. And you do need to work fairly quickly so that the Oreos don’t dissolve into the frosting base.

Thirteenth Annual Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Swirled Cookies 1

Welcome to the 13th Annual Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies!

DAY 1: Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

This versatile chocolate cookie dough makes a wonderful backdrop for melted peppermint bark and crushed candy canes!

You can use any variety of peppermint bark, but I really like these thin chunks that are sold in bags, like chocolate chips.

Peppermint Bark Chips

Bake the cookies, and then immediately place several of the peppermint bark chunks on the hot cookies.

When the peppermint bark melts, use a toothpick to stir the melted chocolate.
