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…

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…

This dessert is dark, sexy, and packed with dark chocolate flavor. So dark in fact that I almost named this Heart of Darkness Tart, but that seemed a bit dramatic (even for me). Paired with a minty blackberry sauce and fluffy whipped cream, this tart is sure to be a hit at your next get…

Dark Chocolate Popcorn with Sea Salt

I whipped this up for my Phantom Masquerade party and it was a total hit. I never think to serve popcorn and now I think I may have to serve variations of this at all of my parties. It’s sweet, salty, and addictive. It’s also vegan, if you’re into that sort of thing. I used maple…

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut-Almond Butter Frosting

And the Oscar for most delightful cupcake goes to… DARK CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES WITH PEANUT-ALMOND BUTTER FROSTING! I wanted something special to nosh on during the Academy Awards so I decided to bake cupcakes. I don’t bake them very often so it was quite the treat. I prefer dark chocolate to milk and didn’t have enough peanut butter…

Strawberries & Cookies in Warm Dark Chocolate Toffee Sauce

I’m having a love affair with toffee sauce all because I bought the Stonewall Kitchen variety on accident. I thought I grabbed two of their Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce. (If you haven’t tried it, you must), and was a little disappointed when I got home and realized I had grabbed a Dark Chocolate…

Dark Chocolate Fudge Pistachio Cookies

I spent the evening baking cookies to take to my family’s lake house. I chose this recipe because it’s chocolate, so the females will like it, and it’s salty, so the males will like it. Dark Chocolate Fudge Pistachio Cookies 1 cup butter, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs, at room temperature…
