Chocolate Malted Peppermint Sweet Rolls with Chocolate Malt Icing #Choctoberfest

If you’ve been following along then you know that the past several recipes I’ve posted have been in celebration of #Choctoberfest 2016. Since this will be my last post for this event (don’t worry, I’ll still be posting chocolate recipes from time to time), I’ve decided to go out with a bang! Today I bringing you my recipe for Chocolate Malted Peppermint Sweet Rolls with Chocolate Malt Icing. And, yes. They’re everything you’d hope they’d be!

Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie #PumpkinWeek 2016

I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie, and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie.

Heavenly Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars from Joan

The recipe I’m sharing today for Chocolate Pecan Pies Bars is from fellow food blogger friend, Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More, who sadly died unexpectedly only a few short months ago. To say that the food blogging world was knocked off its axis into a world of shock and disbelief, is an understatement.

Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto

You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.
