Chocolate Mocha Pudding Cake

Pudding Cake, also known as Chocolate Cobbler, has been around for quite some time. It’s quick and easy to make, requires just a few ingredients, and the results are fantastic. I mean, what could be better than chocolate cake, and a layer of luscious chocolate pudding (think lava cake on a large scale)? Oh yeah…adding coffee could make it better!

Pudding Cake CollageIf you are a coffee lover, and you like chocolate, then this dessert is for you! It will definitely make an appearance at my house again. Even my girls liked it, and they don’t drink coffee except for the occasional Starbuck’s Frappuccino – which is so full of cream and chocolate chips that it’s a dessert as well.   [Read more…]

Coconut Pie with Rum Sauce – Weeknight Easy and Guest Worthy (and a Live Chat)

You are not going to believe how easy this dessert is.  To make the pie, you just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour into a pie pan and bake.

That’s it!  If you can mix, you can make.

The Rum Sauce only requires stirring and 1 minute of boiling.  I used rum extract, because I didn’t want to buy a whole bottle of real rum for one dessert.

I made this one night after dinner and invited our neighbors to come eat it with us.  We sat on the back porch and talked while the kids played.  Every time we do something spontaneous and neighborly like this, I wonder why we don’t do it more often.

Make this dessert and invite friends to share it with you.  You’ll be glad you did.  So will they.

Ice Cream Cappuccino and a Giveaway

You are going to want to make this as soon as you can. It’s cold, creamy coffee goodness. Summer treats don’t get any better.

I’m pretty sure I’ve already expressed how much I love ice cream. I really, really love it. I could eat it every day, even multiple times a day.

I’m also head over heels for International Delight Iced Coffee. It’s my favorite afternoon snack break. I’ve even made ice cream with it.

But this time I’ve combined vanilla ice cream with International Delight Iced Coffee into a marvelous Ice Cream Cappuccino.

Make this one for your friends. They will love you forever if you do.

Coffee Toffee Ice Cream Pie with a Ribbon of Fudge

As far as I’m concerned, coffee ice cream with hot fudge is the best dessert in the world.  It’s my favorite of favorites.

So when I was asked to try Häagen-Dazs® and I got to choose my own flavor, I jumped at the chance.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love ice cream?

Of course, I chose coffee ice cream.  I thought about posting a photo of a big bowl of Häagen-Dazs® with hot fudge, because that is how I like to eat it best.  But, then a friend told me about a pie she once had.  The pie had coffee ice cream, rich fudge, toffee pieces and a chocolate crust.  Holy ice cream scoops!

This pie is impressive, perfect for serving to company.  It’s no-bake, easy to assemble and you can make it ahead of time because it gets kept in the freezer until you’re ready to eat.

Easy Double Chocolate Mousse Dessert

Spoonfuls of deep, creamy chocolate.  Now that’s the way to impress your sweetie (or sweeties)!

This dessert is inspired by one I had while eating out a few weeks ago.  There’s something sweet about individual servings.  I think it shows you’ve taken a little extra time to make it special.

I call recipes like this one “cheater recipes”.  It’s the best kind of cheating.  You end up with an impressive and delicious dessert for about $4 for 6 servings.  Much less than a similar dessert would cost when eating out and it’s every bit as decadent.

It starts with these ingredients:

Easy Double Chocolate Mousse Dessert

Serves: Makes 6-8 servings, depending on the size of dessert cups you use.

  • 2 boxes Jello Chocolate Mousse + milk to make according to package directions
  • 1 package (8x8 pan) brownie mix + ingredients to bake according to package directions
  • whipped cream
  • cocoa for garnish
  1. Mix mousse and bake brownies according to package directions. Allow brownies to cool and mousse to chill.
  2. Choose small dessert cups or parfait glasses. Cut brownies to fit bottom of cup. I used a drinking cup as a round cutter for the brownies.
  3. Spoon chilled mousse over brownie.
  4. Spread whipped cream over mousse.
  5. Dust the top with cocoa, if desired. I used a small wire strainer to dust the cocoa.
