This Peanut Butter Cake with Dark Chocolate Icing Recipe may look a little unassuming, but don’t let it fool you. It’s one amazing decadent dessert! Crazy good is what it is. Randy said it was like crack cake (mom, that means he couldn’t stop eating it—we don’t do drugs). And he has a pretty picky palate to please when it comes to desserts. Crack cake. Yep. It’s kinda like that.
Looking back at some of the very first posts shared here on She Wears Many Hats is both frightening and fun. Frightening at the typos, and pitiful quality of photographs, and fun to remember making certain recipes for the first time. Like the super scrumptious Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache Frosting that I shared way back in August of 2009.
Our favorite oatmeal cookie recipe is the Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe from Quaker Oats, only with chocolate chips substituted for the raisins. Not that we have anything against raisins. But chocolate is hard to beat when it comes to cookies. These cookies are chewy and light in texture at the same time, and oh so satisfying. And they do vanish rather very quickly.
The perfect pairing of chocolate and peanut butter is so wonderful, it has been exemplified in many treats from candy to cakes. But come summertime, when that sweet cold treat craving comes a-knocking and you want a chocolate peanut butter fix, whip up this super easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Milkshake like the old time diner does it.
Welcome my daughter, Hope! She’s sharing a brownie combo that’s she’s been making for a while. Tempting her mama with sweet goodness is not a good thing, y’all. But she does it well. This brownie recipe is quick and easy and can be made with a homemade brownie recipe or with a boxed brownie mix. Your…

All of the ingredients for these Dessert Nachos can be kept stocked up ready for a quick toasting of coconut and melting of chocolate. These are packed with flavor and texture, and can be prepped and ready to serve in under 10 minutes. And when you have a herd of hungry teens heading through the door, time is of the essence.
Muffins can be tricky. Some people may hear the word “muffins” and think healthy cupcake, therefore most places that sell muffins cover them in chocolate, drench them with powdered sugar, fill them with cream cheese or other goodness deserving of a full-blown dessert, while others think of them as lumps of gluten, bran and mushy fruit. Which usually means one is left to choose between muffins drowning in sugar coatings, or visit the “healthy” muffin mongers who sell basically pastry rocks. Where’s the happy tasty medium?
Anyway, these guys make a great pair for sure, and you will find that this Chocolate Biscotti dunked in a great cup of coffee is no exception. No bland biscotti here. No siree bobtail. It is quite the perfect biscotti. It is rich, and chocolatey, of course with the satisfying crunch that biscotti delivers. It just begs for a good cup of Joe. You’ll see.
This Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Recipe has been dancing around in my head for a while now after enjoying a delectable strawberry cake last spring at a local cafe. This one, made with a fresh strawberry puree mixed into the batter, just beckoned to be covered with a Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.
This Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting Recipe is a fantastic frosting for many baked goods.
When it comes to chocolate, the darker the better in my personal opinion. Recently I made a cake (which I’ll be sharing here tomorrow!) that just screamed to be topped with a decadent dark chocolate buttercream. I immediately remembered that unforgettable buttercream atop a cupcake I enjoyed at The Magnolia Bakery in Chicago a couple of years ago. I tried the vanilla and the chocolate. Oh my word. Talk about decadent.
Once again the holidays flew by without getting around to everything on my baking list. So, over the past couple of weeks, the baking bug has hit and I’ve done a little catching up on making a few old favorites as well as trying some new treats too. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are certainly an old favorite. I know I’m not alone when I say that. Chocolate and peanut butter is a combination that’s hard to beat, don’t you think?
