El Diablo Chocolate Truffles

Red Hot Chocolate Truffles

If you love my Mexican Hot Chocolate Truffles but wanted more heat, I've created these fiery hot truffles just for you.  El Diablo (Spanish for "the devil") has three times the amount of cayenne pepper in them and I've sprinkled a generous amount of cayenne pepper on top, just in case it's not hot enough for you :-)

Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

These cupcakes actually started out as egg-free vanilla cupcakes for my oldest son.  But when my youngest son developed a dairy allergy (as well as an egg allergy), I decided to make these vegan vanilla cupcakes so both of them could enjoy them :-)

Chocolate Wasted Mini Cupcakes

Chocolate Wasted Mini Cupcakes

Still looking for more ways to get chocolate wasted?

Here's a bite-sized version of the Chocolate Wasted Cake I made for my brother.  Mini cupcakes!  They're so cute and so perfect to serve at parties.  I'm pretty sure these will be a hit this holiday season or any season for that matter :-)

Tutorial: Transformers Autobot Cake

Transformer Autobot Cake

When I was a little kid, I used watch Transformers with my brothers and sister.  I remember we used to go to our parents' bedroom on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons.  It's so funny now that I think about it because now my kids are doing the same thing.  I guess that's my life coming full circle, huh?  My hubby also grew up watching Transformers, so it was no surprise when one day he decided to get the entire DVD set.  We had a Transformers marathon that weekend.  It was awesome :-)

Just when I was starting to enjoy the cool weather, it heats up again! Well, I guess it's not too late for me to share another one of my favorite frozen treats. This is my take on my grandma's avocado ice cream.  It's so rich and creamy and the best part is you don't need an ice cream maker to make it :-)

Chocolate Wasted Cake

Chocolate Wasted Cake

Ever since my brother started using the phrase "I wanna get chocolate wasted" from the movie Grown Ups I've been wanting to make this cake for his birthday.  Being a chocoholic myself, I had no trouble coming up with ways to fill this cake with layer upon layer of chocolatey goodness.  Just looking at this cake, I think you'll agree that it definitely deserves its name.
