Just a Suggestion


Well, my week of chocolate is over. *sigh* But I thought I’d round up all my chocolate recipes that use cocoa powder for when you get your King Arthur Flour Bensdorp cocoa powder. Because if you ordered it last week it should be arriving soon, right? Hee hee :)

911 cookies

Chocolate Comfort Cookies chock-full of toasted hazelnuts and tart cherries.

Mexican Chocolate Cookies2

Mexican Chocolate Cookies with cayenne and black pepper, they taste warm loooong after they’ve left the oven!

chocolate covered cherry brownies

Alton Brownies (in bite sized nuggets), one of the best brownie recipes I’ve ever found! Thick and fudgy and when baked in a square pan, the middle piece never quite sets up. Consider it a boon to the baker, top it with ice cream and enjoy the ooey-gooey deliciousness yourself! 


My favorite whoopie pie! Dark and super chocolatey, I like mine with cream cheese frosting and made into smaller-than-conventional portions.

 Chocolate Spice Cake

Chocolate Spice Cake with Cardamom-Scented Ganache, a beautiful, elegant cake perfect for Fall!

Reese's birthday cake

Good ole’ Chocolate Cake. Sturdy enough to stand up to gobs of American buttercream, just how my kids like it!

chocolate cupcake with salted caramel buttercream

The Carrie Cupcake: A devil’s food chocolate cupcake, filled with salted caramel, dipped in bittersweet chocolate, and topped with salted caramel buttercream.

blueberry tart

Blueberry Tart. A melt in your mouth chocolate crust filled with a delicious creamy filling and topped with blueberries.

hot chocolate mix

Hot Chocolate (from a homemade mix) with softly whipped cream. The perfect drink to sip at the bus-stop while you’re waiting for your kindergartner to get home from school!

OMG! Jennie I made my chocolate cream pie yesterday making the filling with the Bensdorf Cocoa Powder I won. And shame on you! I am a convert. It was wonderful!
