Chocolate Caramel Shortbread

For my birthday last year, my brother and sister-in-law got me three delightful specialty cookbooks.  One was a salute to whoopie pies and the other two to general sweet treats.  I have made (and shared) a few treats but today I share my favorite thus far.  I find myself loving it not only for it’s […]

Espresso Dark Brownie Cupcakes

Espresso Dark Brownie Cupcakes

I love my 300 Best Chocolate Recipes cookbook.  Not only do I love everything I have tried, but there are no calories in any of them!  Kid, I kid.  This recipe combines two distinct and decadent flavors, coffee and chocolate, to create a sinful cupcake.  I top it with my Nany’s peanut butter frosting and […]
