Dark Side Cookies

This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes. I used to bake these all the time in college. I’m so glad I finally thought to blog about them! I’ve named these Dark Side Cookies because these are the deepest, darkest, chocolate-iest cookies! They taste downright sinful. These beauties are very soft; they don’t have…

Black Bottom Cupcakes

Decadent chocolate cheesecake cupcakes This is a truly OG Rose Table recipe. I used to make Black Bottom Cupcakes all the time in high school. This is my mom’s recipe from the 1970s (with minor tweaks!) and it’s divine. If you love cheesecake and chocolate, this is a must-have recipe! This recipe is so easy…

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies

An easy brownie recipe with a layer of cheesecake nestled between chocolate layers I had a comment the other day on a homemade ice cream post saying “I’m not there yet” and it occurred to me that I need some more beginner baker recipes on my website. When I was a teenager, I made a…

Peanut Fudge Ripple Ice Cream

Homemade vanilla ice cream dotted with salty peanuts with ribbons of fudge If you’ve never made real ice cream (as in, a base that calls for eggs), you’re in for a treat. My vanilla base is without a doubt the creamiest, dreamiest ice cream. A friend of mine called it “luxury ice cream” because of…

Bailey’s Chocolate Cake

Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day! Love Irish Cream? Same! Especially when Irish Cream frosting is lovingly spread all over a dark chocolate cake. I started baking this cake when I was just twenty-one years old. This cake is a classic at The Rose Table so it’s funny that I’ve never published it before….

Lavender Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the dreamiest chocolate chip cookies. I can’t remember the last time I ate such a fancy cookie! The texture and flavor of this cookie is bakery-perfect. These are easy cookies to bake with no chilling time required, meaning you can be eating them about twenty minutes from now! Lavender complements dark chocolate so well. I…

Rocky Road Bar Cookies

These cookies…wow. I made these for my mom and our eyes popped out of sockets like little cartoon characters when we first tasted them. They’re chewy, they’re rich, they’re chocolatey, they’re nutty…they pretty much have all of the elements I’m looking for in a cookie. I learned how to make homemade marshmallows (so fun! so…

Marshmallow Heart Pops

Need a Valentine’s Day treat? Make Marshmallow Heart Pops! I used my homemade vanilla marshmallows (which are so satisfying and fun to make!) for this recipe and cut out a few hearts from the block. This recipe makes four heart pops, but it’s easy to scale it up if you want to cut out the…

Perfect Chocolate Coating

Frustrated with gloopy melted chocolate? Need perfectly melted, smooth, glossy chocolate for chocolate covered strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, and more? You’ve come to the right place. I’ve finally cracked the code for the perfect chocolate coating: for every 1 oz of chocolate, add 1/2 tsp of shortening. Just look how gorgeous and glossy it is! This…
