Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups

This week’s assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie is Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups. If you’re a fan of Almond Roca buttercrunch, you’ll love these Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups. There’s a nice buttery flavor in the crunchy toffee that complements the taste of the toasted almonds and chocolate.

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is for Apple Pielettes. These are tiny pies that are baked in muffin tins that have a nice buttery crust and great flavor inside and out.

To be perfectly honest, I hesitate whenever I see a cake as a Tuesdays with Dorie assignment because […]

I really didn’t expect this tart to be so good, but once I bit into my first slice, I could get the undertones of the orange zest in the streusel, a light […]

Midnight Crackles

This recipe for Midnight Crackles is one that I found in BAKING From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. This is a chocolate cookie with a kick (thanks to some unexpected spices)! This smells and tastes like it should be a cookie that should be baked for the holidays.
