This cake is a perfect example of my foodie motto put into action. More chocolate = more better. My mom gave me the recipe for Texas Sheet Cake several years ago. I’ve made it a few times, but it wasn’t very chocolatey. After looking at other recipes for Texas Sheet Cake that I found in old church cookbooks, I decided to double the cocoa in mom’s recipe. Now we’re talking! The photo doesn’t show the color as well I wish, but the extra cocoa gave the cake a deeper color and flavor – more like brownies.
A minor tweak to the original No Bake Cookie, makes for a delicious change of pace. The same chocolatey goodness with a twist of coconut. I thought about adding shredded coconut to them, but decided that my kids might find that a bit to much. If you’re a true coconut lover you could substitute the oats for coconut.

I went on a hunt for Canadian treats to eat while we watch the Olympics and found these yummy cookies. The recipe comes from Mennonite Girls Can Cook. I’d never visited that blog before, but they have lots of yummy recipes over there.
The cookies are soft and cake-like. The combination of molasses and chocolate is very good, especially with the white icing on top. [Read more…] about Moosehunter Cookies – Canadian Chocolate Molasses Cookies

These are what happens when a desire to visit Disney World collides with a chocolate craving on a plain old Sunday afternoon. I found the recipe while buzzing around allears.net , a fantastic resource for planning or dreaming about a Disney trip. These brownies are made at the Boardwalk Bakery. I’ve never eaten the real deal, so I can’t tell you how close they come, but I can tell you they were fudgy, chocolatey and they didn’t last long.
