This Cannoli Cake boasts all the best flavors of the Italian dessert in a delicious layer cake! Moist layers of ricotta cake studded with chocolate chips are held together by a fluffy and flavorful mascarpone buttercream.
I have had the idea for this cannoli cake recipe bouncing around in my brain for a year. Over a year. Well over a year.
A long time. It took me a long time to make it. But, in reality, it didn’t take a long time to make. Does that make sense? It does to me. By the time I got around to making the cake I realized it took no longer than a regular layer cake. Oh, how the wheels of my mind turn.
This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Tart is what every chocoholics’ dreams are made of. A crispy, chocolate cookie crust filled to bursting with fresh strawberry jam and the silkiest chocolate ganache you’ve ever tasted. Then a garnish of fresh, bright berries – for good measure and a real “wow” factor. It’ll make you fall in love.
Let’s talk about this chocolate covered strawberry tart,
Let’s talk about the Oreo cookie crust and how dang easy it
is to put together! Because it requires only two ingredients!
Then again, the chocolate filling may be easier? It also
requires only two ingredients!
The strawberry filling is just a simple layer of strawberry jam! We all know I’m partial to Seth’s – it truly is the best! But (and not to sound like the Barefoot Contessa over here), store-bought is fine.
Chocolate covered strawberries are an indulgent and easy Valentine’s Day dessert that can be made for a fraction of the cost of the high-priced, store-bought ones. Customize them with your favorite chocolate – dark, milk, or white. You can even top them with crushed cookies, candies, or sprinkles!
Buckle up, y’all. We’re starting Valentine’s Day preparations
with a batch of chocolate covered strawberries!
Some may argue that it’s too soon to start Valentine’s Day
Some may argue that it’s just a holiday invented by the
greeting card companies to sell more product.
And to those people I say….shut your mouth! But not before
you put a chocolate covered strawberry in it!

I am living for these Cara Cara orange bars with thyme shortbread
crust right now!

Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches are a delicious make-ahead frozen dessert that boast all the wonderful flavors of winter! Buttery, chocolatey shortbread cookies sandwiching creamy peppermint ice cream – what could be better?!
If I’m being honest, these Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches were not the original plan. There was going to be a pavlova situation happening, but it didn’t…uh…y’know…happen.
That’s ok! We adjust and change and frankly, make the thing
that feels right and lights us up instead of what we feel we should do
or what the original plan was.
I’m really softening with age.
These shortbread cookies though? They’re not soft. They’re
crisp and buttery and crumbly and perfect for sandwiching layers of creamy peppermint
ice cream. After they’re dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint
candies, of course!
Peppermint Mocha Cereal Treats are an easy, no-bake Christmas

the recipe at the link below!
This is the last of ‘em. The last of the Christmas
Then again. Maybe not. Maybe I’ve got another peppermint-y,
mocha-y treat coming.
Because I’m totally on board with Gilmore Girls Season 7. At least, one point they make in Season 7, because, by and large, the final season is basically a gigantic dumpster fire. (Stay with me here – I have a point, I promise.)
