5 Recipes for the Chocolate Lover

Hey all you beautiful Chocolate-Lovers!

As you know from watching my episodes, I’m always on a hunt for all things chocolate.  Today and every Friday, I bring you my fave chocolatey, ooey, gooey, scrump-dilly-umptious treasures from around the globe.  Click on any of the pictures below and you’ll be taken to the step-by-step directions.  You have no excuses!  Unless you are satisfied with just drooling, then drool away. 


Who wouldn’t want a pirate ship birthday cake?  Age 5 or age 50, this is awesomeness!  Check out Gude’s recipe on her site Hodge Podge Craft where she has step by step directions here to be the hit of your next party.

 Best of Long Island and Central Florida (I know you East coast people, like me, will love that name . . . you totally get it) has created the Buttermilk Chocolate Cookie.  To me, there is nothing better than a chocolate cookie, it just screams COMFORT!  Go make her recipe here

I’ve always wanted to send someone one of those edible, chocolate covered fruit arrangements . . . until I see the price tag.  Well, DIY Daily Life and I were thinking the same thing BUT she decided to do something about it and shows us exactly how to make it ourselves for a mere fraction of the cost.  Now its your turn, go here!

I recently visited my first Serendipity restaurant, you know, that restaurant that serves the $1,000 hot fudge sundae?  It was a super hot day, I really wanted hot chocolate and chose the Frozen Hot Chocolate . . . win-win for a hot day.  The price tag was still hefty (although not $1,000) and thankfully, I discovered Family Food Travel

I’m sooooo sold on this one.  I love Maraschino Cherries.  I love Cake Balls.  I love Chocolate.  Flour on my Face has done a beautiful thing by combining them all together.


Lucky us!

In the comments below, tell me which one you will make for your friends and family?  Will you roll up your sleeves for the pirate ship cake, make a classic cookie, gift someone your own chocolate covered arrangement, save 10 bucks on frozen hot chocolate or make some cherry chocolate cake balls?   Do tell!

P.S.  If you like just chocolate bars, here is a really unique Ritter Butter Biscuit Bar review

    Okay…I will for sure start with the frozen hot chocolate! That looks so good right now as I sit in my pjs lol! And then I will move onto the buttermilk chocolate cookies because let’s be honest, there is always room in the stomach for more chocolate! This is a great grouping of some yummy recipes to try out! If only the weekends were longer :)

  2. Sarah

    I am definitely going to have to try out that pirate ship!

  3. Carol

    Those cake pops look delicious! Carol

    Oh my gosh… I’ve dreamed of frozen hot chocolate for years and pair that with the cherry chocolate cake pops and I will be in a happy chocolate coma. Thank you you’ve made my day :)

    G’day and thanks for stopping by and sharing your link at our #SayGdayParty! Love chocolate!
    I hope you have stopped back to Say G’day to another person at the party and reply to my questions posed this week! Thank you!
    Cheers! Joanne

    I hope everyone likes the buttermilk cookies. They are SO good!

    I have to try the frozen hot chocolate- I get into the city ( NYC) once in awhile and always try to hit Serendipity’s for the hot chocolate. When I’m not on the Island the recipe posted looks like a good alternate. Now to get a huge glass and I’m all set!

    The pirate ship is so cute and a perfect gift idea with the edible chocolate fruit arrangement. Chocolate covered cake balls- I can see another wonderful treat.

    I’m a chocolate fanatic and these recipes are all fabulous! Yummmm… can’t wait to try the frozen hot chocolate

  9. Heather

    Definitely must try the frozen hot chocolate! The boys use to buy this at the local coffee shop. This will be a great treat for them!
