Ingredient Spotlight: Cocoa 2012
This is the last Ingredient Spotlight of the year. What better way to close out the year than with cocoa? I can’t wait to see all the chocolatey desserts you’ve got lined up for this one.
Of course, not every recipe that uses cocoa is a dessert. (Cincinnati chili comes to mind.)
Here are a few of my cocoa recipes: [Read more…] about Ingredient Spotlight: Cocoa 2012
Salted Caramel Mocha Cobbler
Oh my goodness! I know there are all kinds of delicious recipes to be made at this time of year, but you’ve got to make room for this one.
It’s a cinch to make and it is so, so chocolatey with a hint of salted caramel. Served warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, it’s enough to make your knees go weak. Yum!
The key is International Delight Salted Caramel Mocha. I think this would also be awesome using International Delight Peppermint Mocha. I’ve adapted the recipe from one found here. I doubled it, because it’s too good to just have a little. And I swapped out the milk for International Delight. Amazing stuff!
Before we get to the recipe, I also want to share that International Delight is partnering with Coats for Kids. If you register your ID Creamer UPC this holiday season, International Delight will donate 50 cents to the Coats for Kids Foundation! Give back in one quick step and help International Delight reach their goal of $100,000 this year!

Coconut Cream and Chocolate Dessert
I have a new thing for black bottom desserts. Chocolate layers are just so scrumptious.
First, there was Black Bottom Peanut Butter Pie.
And now there’s this dessert with a layer of coconut cream filling over over a chocolate cream cheese layer.
It’s a variation of a popular dessert that goes by many names. That recipe is often made with chocolate pudding, but can also be made with lemon. Both are wonderful. I decided to change it up by putting the chocolate in the cream cheese layer and using coconut cream pudding.

Banana Cake with Coffee (Mocha) Icing
One of my Grandma’s signature desserts was Banana Cake with Coffee Icing. She made it from scratch as a layer cake. I’ve made her recipe before and it uses every bowl in the house. No kidding. It requires whipping egg whites and stirring dry ingredients and mashing bananas and boiling water and beating egg yolks… A delicious, time-consuming mess!
I’ve simplified things a lot with this recipe. It’s still made from scratch. I use a sheet cake pan instead of doing a layer cake. But I kept the Coffee Icing recipe the same. It’s really mocha, but we didn’t use the word “mocha” back then. Mocha is a new-fangled word.
