Cheesecake Swirl Brownies

An easy, impressive dessert I mean, honestly, what’s more satisfying than biting into a cheesecake brownie?! I used to make these all the time when I was a teenager.

Four Corner Fudge

This is the Christmas life-hack every baker needs. I’ve been doing this trick for ages but I’ve never blogged about it so I thought tonight was the night!

Black Forest Brownies

You may have noticed by now: I love chocolate, I love German food, and I love creating new dishes from easy-to-make components. Here I’ve come up with a delicious brownie dessert with pillowy whipped cream and my favorite black cherry sauce.

How to Make Chocolate Mice

I made these little cuties for my Cinderella dinner party dessert. Aren’t they darling? I found this silicone mouse mold on Etsy and it worked perfectly. For this size, you need about 1 oz of chocolate per mouse and a spoonful of caramel sauce. These are very simple to make and take just ten minutes…
