Black Forest Cake

“The best black forest cake I ever had,” according to food blogger Chomp Dallas. Black Forest Cake is the king of German cakes, in my opinion. Contrary to popular belief, German Chocolate Cake is not German. Repeat after me: German Chocolate Cake is not German. It was invented by the German Chocolate brand, named after the founder….

Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Cookies

I don’t have the best photos of this delightful cookie but what can I say? I write about my real life here on The Rose Table and sometimes that means taking a few iPhone photos on the fly, packing up cookies on a picnic, and totally forgetting to take beautifully staged photos. That won’t deter…

Ghosts in the Graveyard

An updated Halloween classic I’ve eaten Ghosts in the Graveyard almost every Halloween of my life. My mom made it at all of my Halloween parties and I continue the tradition today. It just wouldn’t be Halloween without it! I’ve updated the classic dirt pudding dish with freshly whipped cream instead of the whipped topping…

Dark Chocolate Doughnuts

These super soft doughnuts pack a ton of dark chocolate flavor  I tested so many chocolate doughnut recipes before settling on this one. It’s light and fluffy with a deep, dark chocolate flavor. These are baked, not fried, so they’re much healthier than your average doughnut and super moist from the buttermilk. Little known fact:…

Ice Cream Board

In an effort to post more entertaining ideas, I give you the Ice Cream Board. Think cheese board but instead of crackers and charcuterie, we have chocolate chips and cookies and everything else needed for a fabulous summer soiree. I’m going to confess this right off the bat: I technically used gelato. What can I…

Frozen Bananas

The perfect summertime treat! My family has an inside joke about frozen bananas. Once at Disneyland we were all picking afternoon treats and my dad saw a cart and said, “Ooh, how good does a frozen banana sound?” He was so excited to see what that meant and completely dismayed when the cast member handed…

The Great Wall of Chocolate

A cake as mysterious as the dark side of the moon. Multiple sources have reported that this is my best dessert to date. One of those sources was my mom, so you know it’s true! I created this epic dark chocolate opera cake for Disney Dinners: Mulan but you can certainly bake this cake for…

Dark Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes

If you’re looking for a swoon-worthy cupcake, you’ve come to the right place. Deep, dark chocolate cupcakes are the perfect vehicle for my whipped nutella frosting. I dare you to stop at just one. You’ll want to eat the frosting with a spoon. These are super simple to make. I threw the batter together while…

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

Some sundaes are worth melting for! This deep, dark hot fudge sauce keeps for ages and heats up perfectly each and every time, making it a great make-ahead dessert when you’re serving ice cream sundaes. I served this with vanilla bean gelato, amaretto whipped cream, slivered almonds, Ice Queen sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake…
