How To Make Edible Chocolate Bowls

Does it really matter what goes in the bowl? Hardly. But a massive chocolate sundae would be pretty nice. It is summer after all. This is an easy tutorial on how to make edible chocolate bowls like what you see here.
If you're using white chocolate, you can add some color to create petal-like bowls. How cute!
You will need:
12 ounces (1 bag) white candy melts
6 ounces (1/2 bag) pink or other color candy melts
12 small balloons (water balloons work great)
1 toothpick
Non-stick mat or parchment paper
2 microwave-safe mixing bowls
2 rubber spatulas
Safety pin
1. Blow up the small balloons--not the large ones. No need for helium.
In two separate bowls, melt the candy melts according to the manufacturer's instructions in the microwave. If the melted mixtures are too thick, you can add a teaspoon of oil and stir into them.
To create petals, add a few drops of the pink (or any other candy melt color) and swirl with a tooth pick.
Gently dip the balloon in the candy melt.
Place the dipped balloons onto parchment paper or silicone sheet to set up, which may take a couple hours. Feel free to chill in the fridge to speed this up.
Pop the balloons with a safety pin and carefully pull out the balloon from the chocolate bowl. Then fill it with all sorts of ice cream madness and syrup! DELISH! For more kitchen tutorials, click here.

Chocolate Chip (Perfectly Safe!) Cookie Dough Truffles
About two weeks ago, @vegantraveler posted the most hilarious card in her Vegan Laughs that really got me thinking. It had a picture of a vegan baker licking cake batter off a mixing whisk and bragging about how vegans get to eat all the batter they want! (Check it out over here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/586948-Why-I-love-Vegan-Baking) And it's true! While admittedly, I haven't been vegan or vegetarian in years (gasp), I do still eat vegan and vegetarian foods regularly and appreciate the added safety in plant-based recipes. With no egg, no meat, and no dairy, there's less risk of foodborne illnesses and a much longer shelf life. (It's also perfect in a potluck situation when you know it's going to be left out for a long time!) With that being said, you can share and enjoy these cookie dough truffles (made with vegan cookie dough) without all of the concern that usually comes along with eating raw dough. One of my sister's favorite activities to do each holiday season is make a huge batch of vegan truffles for friends, and this is certainly our most favorite! --------------------------------------------------------------- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup (2 sticks) vegan butter or margarine, room temperature 3/4 cup granulated sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup soy or almond milk 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips 14 ounces of meltable chocolate (Ghiradelli and Godiva both make vegan melting chocolate, but other natural food brands do too.) 1. Beat butter and sugars and in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add cream and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. 2. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour. 3. When dough is firm enough to handle (it may help to lightly flour your hands), form dough into 1" balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place sheets in freezer and let chill for 30 minutes. 4. Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or in microwave according to package directions. Using forks or a dipping tool, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Tap fork on side of pan to remove any excess coating, and return to waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until set. Store, chilled, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

OMG Samoa Brownies โ€“ย Girl Scout Cookies Gone Wild
Somebody pinch me. Am I dead? I must be dead. Because I am IN HEAVEN. These Samoa Brownies, brought to you by Broma Bakery, are all I've ever needed in a dessert: gooey chocolate brownie, toasted coconut, and sweet caramel. I thought Samoa girl scout cookies were as good as it gets โ€“ and then I met these brownies. Samoas Brownies Recipe by Sarah Fennel at Broma Bakery Ingredients For the brownies: ยพ cup cocoa powder 1ยฝ cups sugar 2 eggs 12 tablespoons unsalted butter ยฝ cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons vanilla extract ยฝ teaspoon salt ยฝ cup bittersweet chocolate disks 1 teaspoon brewed coffee (optional) For the coconut caramel: 1 cup granulated sugar 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp, cut into tablespoons ยฝ cup heavy cream, room temp 2ยฝ cups sweetened, shredded coconut For the chocolate drizzle: ยผ cup chopped bittersweet chocolate 1. Brownies: Preheat oven to 350ยฐF. Line an 8"x8" baking dish with parchment paper and set aside. In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, melt the butter. Stir in sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, salt, and optional coffee. Once combined, fold in cocoa powder and flour. Toss in bittersweet chocolate disks. Pour the brownie batter into the baking dish, spreading evenly to the edges. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before topping with caramel sauce. 2. Coconut Caramel Sauce: While the brownies are baking, make your coconut caramel. In a medium saucepan, heat the sugar on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Use a spatula to occasionally stir the sugar, getting to the bottom of the pan. At first the sugar will be lumpy, but will soon melt and start turning a brownish color. Don't stir too often, just enough to keep everything evenly cooking. After 5 minutes, the sugar should become fully melted. Once it becomes a dark amber hue, remove from heat immediately and stir in butter. The mixture will violently bubble. You're doing it right. Use your spatula to stir the butter and sugar until they melt together completely. This can take 1-2 minutes. Next, pour in the heavy cream and sea salt. You can use 1 to 1ยฝ teaspoons, depending on how much saltiness you like. Use your spatula to stir until everything is combined. Place back on the stove for about 30 seconds, stirring the whole time. Remove from heat. Stir in coconut flakes. Set aside until brownies are cooled. 3.) Assemble the Brownies: Once the brownies have cooled for 15 minutes, run a knife along the edges so they don't stick to the pan. Spread the coconut caramel on top of the brownies. Again, run a knife along the edges to prevent anything from sticking to the pan. Heat the drizzling chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments. Stir in between each heating. Spoon melted chocolate into a small ziplock bag, creating a makeshift pastry bag. Cut a small (tiny!) slit at the bottom corner of the bag. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the coconut caramel. Set in the fridge to cool for about 1 hour. Cut into 9 brownies and serve! If you liked this Girl Scout cookie remix recipe, try making your own Homemade Thin Mints!
Gorgeous Valentines Day Baked Apple Roses!
Beautiful? Check. Easy to make? Check. Healthy? Hey, they're better for you than a box of chocolates. For a sweet homemade Valentines Day dessert, try something new โ€“ these surprisingly simple baked apple roses! To make 6 roses, you'll need: A muffin tin 4 apples, cored and sliced in half (leave the skin on) Juice of half a lemon 3 Tbsp fruit preserves (apricot, apple, strawberry โ€“ choose your fave!) 2 Tbsp water (plus more, for soaking apples) 1 sheet of store-bought puff pastry Cinnamon, to taste To see how to make them, check out the video below, or just follow these simple written instructions! Instructions adapted from Tip Hero! How to Make Apple Roses These delicious baked apple roses are a perfect way to impress your Valentine. Or woo them any day of the year! 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 2. Take halved, cored, unpeeled apples and carefully slice very thin (see how in the video above). Put slices in a microwave safe bowl and cover with water. Add the juice of half a lemon. Microwave for 3 minutes to soften the slices and make them more pliable for rolling up. 3. In another bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of fruit preserves and 3 tablespoons of water. 4. Roll out puff pastry and slice into rectangular strips about 2 inches (or a little less) wide. (Again, the video has better details on this part.) 5. For each strip, spoon a little of the fruit preserve mixture onto the dough and spread. Place apple slices overlapping along the length of the dough. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon and fold pastry dough up over apples. Finally, starting from one end, roll the entire thing up and place dough side down in a greased muffin tin. 6. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before removing from tin. Awesome! You've just learned how to make apple roses! Who's going to use these to make it the best (tastiest) Valentines Day ever? :D

Love Girl Scout Cookies? Try This Homemade Thin Mints Recipe
Once in a while, I have a serious Thin Mint craving. Okay, scratch that. I have a serious Thin Mint craving every moment of every day. I've bought three boxes of shoddy, knock-off "Mint Thins" in the past two weeks (true story). But there's nothing quite like the original โ€“ until now. This recipe faithfully recreates this all-American favorite, down to appearance and texture. Folks rave about them. I haven't tried them yet, but I plan to as soon as possible. If you try your hand at putting those pesky Girl Scouts out of business (jk), let me know how it goes! Copycat Recipe: Thin Mints Cookie Ingredients 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup cocoa powder 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tsp. vanilla extract 3/4 tsp. salt 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour Coating Ingredients 16 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint oil 1.) Pre-heat the oven to 350ยฐF. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until it has a light, fluffy consistency. Add the powdered sugar; mix until combined. Stir in salt, vanilla, and cocoa powder. At this point, the mixture should resemble a thick frosting. Add flour, and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. 2.) Time to use your hands a little. Form the dough into a ball and knead a few times, then flatten it into a disk about an inch thick, wrap in plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer for 15 minutes. 3.) Once dough has chilled, remove it from the freezer and roll it out to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. For a classic look, cut out cookies with a round cookie cutter or small glass with a diameter of between 1 1/2 in. and 2 in. 4.) Bake cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare the peppermint chocolate coating. Slowly melt chocolate, using short bursts of heat in the microwave, or by using/simulating a double boiler. Stir in peppermint oil. 5.) Using a fork, gently lower cookies one at a time into the coating. Turn to coat entirely, then lift out with fork, allowing extra chocolate to drip off before placing cookie on a parchment or plastic-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate chocolate-coated cookies for 15-30 minutes to allow them to set. Recipe adapted from The View From Great Island There you have it! Your own homemade Thin Mints. Time to throw out the store-bought "Mint Thins" and scarf down a couple of these bad boys.
14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food โ€“ and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think โ€“ which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos โ€“ oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar โ€“ but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" โ€“ I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and โ€“ for the mess-haters among us โ€“ you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas โ€“ and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both? Recipe by Princess Pinky Girl (yes, that is her real name) Chocolate Lasagna 2.0 And finally, we've got one last spin on chocolate lasagna from Center Cut Cook. It features a thick Oreo crust, a sweet whipped cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding, and lots of tiny chocolate chips. I think the width of the crust layer and the crunchiness of the mini-chips set it apart from other versions! Recipe by Center Cut Cook Which one of these crazy creations are you trying first?

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1ยฝ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1ยฝ cup dark brown sugar, packed ยฝ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1ยฝ cups chocolate chunks ยฝ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto โ€“ maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
