Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Yum!!! Cut recipe in half for 4 dozen. Mistakenly added 1-1/4 sticks butter instead of 1-1/4 cup. Cookies were still good! Also recipe called for 1/2 tsp peppermint - I added 1 tsp for extra minty flavor.

Peppermint Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
These biscottis are amazing! I didn't feel like crushing my own peppermint candy, so I went on a hunt for something already crushed that would work. Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips did just the trick! Hard to find - only available at Christmas time and they weren't found in the baking aisle at Meijer. Instead, I found them on a special Christmas display in the middle of the aisle dividing the grocery department from the clothing department. Otherwise I followed the recipe to the tee. I made 3 rectangle and got just over 3 dozen cookies. Instead of dipping one end in chocolate and sprinkling with candy, I drizzled chocolate over the whole top of the cookie, added candy, and drizzled more chocolate. After making gifts I had just enough left over to have with my coffee this morning. Delicious! This recipe gets 5 stars from me!

Jenny's Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
I made this cake for my husband's birthday, and we all agree the recipe is our new go-to chocolate cake recipe! For this particular recipe, I cut each layer in two, making 4 layers. I used 3 of those layers for the cake, putting a layer of whipping cream/powdered sugar mixture and a layer of cherries between each layer. I skipped the cherry liqueur altogether, and it wasn't missed. Great Black Forest Cake recipe and great go-to chocolate cake recipe!
