Recently, I’ve had a ton of people ask me about my chocolate chip cookies. They’re almost always the first to go at parties. Can I let you in on a secret? I use the recipe on the back of the Tollhouse chocolate chips bag. Seriously. (And that’s not a paid endorsement, peeps.) Is it easy? (Hell, yeah!) Does […]
This chocolate covered toffee is possibly the easiest candy to make at home. Customize it with whatever toppings you like, and hand it out to your favorite peeps. Great for holidays and birthdays! Get my step-by-step photo recipe here.
Happy fourth of July from beautiful Salem, Ma! Seeing that a lot of the Northeast is rained out this year and people are stuck inside, here’s a great way to enjoy classic s’mores flavor if you can’t get a fire blazing. This is one for the record books. Serve this baby warm and share it […]

This is a summer standby at The Mouse House. (Warning: This cake is not bikini friendly.) It’s dark, dense, and fudge-y, and is the perfect foil for everything from ice cream to fresh berries. I like to slice it in half and fill it with whipped chocolate ganache. (Hello, heaven!) The best part about this […]
Death by chocolate? Yes, please! Honestly, I couldn’t think of a better way to go. This ice cream is easy to make, and gets its luxurious chocolate flavor from a generous amount of cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and chocolate liqueur. It actually really tastes just like frozen chocolate ganache. Frozen. Chocolate. Ganache. (For real.) Breakstone’s […]
Mmmm, homemade hot fudge sauce, just like Grandma used to make. (I’m gonna say this up front: It’s not my fault if you sit down and eat a bowl of this with a spoon, ok?)
Our good friend the Baron Von Hammer came to visit us recently, right around his birthday. That being a rather auspicious occasion, I wanted to make him something special. This chocolate cheesecake didn’t disappoint!
