Ginger Bark a Deliciously Addictive Holiday Treat

by Jennifer Wieland
Ginger Bark is a simple 2 ingredient candy treat that is utterly delicious and giftable! #candy #holidays #Christmas #recipe #ediblegift #quickandeasy

While baking for my family Christmas party this the other day I decided to make something new. Everyone knows all about Peppermint Bark. Chocolate and crushed up candy canes combined to make a cool, creamy holiday treat. The problem I have with that though is that it’s been done to death and you don’t want to show up somewhere that already has 5 variations of the stuff. so if you’re over peppermint or it isn’t your holiday flavor of choice and if you’re the one always eating the gingerbread cookies at holiday parties then I have got the perfect holiday treat to make for you! This treat is going to have you standing out in the edible, homemade gift giving department this year! Ginger Bark is going to become one of your favorite go-to holiday treats to make!

I know exactly what you’re thinking, Ginger Bark, what on Earth us that? Ginger Bark is something that is going to put you on the holiday party map and leave the boring old Peppermint Bark in the dust! In Ginger Bark I have taken white chocolate and kicked the peppermint to the curb and replaced it with crushed up gingersnaps. I have to tell you that the pairing is freaking phenomenal! When I made it my daughter and I kept munching on it and when I brought it to my family Christmas party it received rave reviews from everyone. The white chocolate and the crispy ginger cookies are such a perfect pairing.

Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones

by Jennifer Wieland
Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones for the kids to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks win and parade.

 

 

Monday was my son’s birthday he turned 11 and brought some awesome luck to the Chicago Blackhawks that night because they won the Stanley Cup for the third time in six years and won it at home for the first time since 1938. (It’s perfectly okay for me to believe he gave the his birthday luck for the win!) Today is the parade and the city is a madhouse! Hordes of people are lining the parade route and my 22-year-old is one of them. I would be too but with crowds that size I can’t bring my three youngest. I fear someone would get lost. SO since they were sad about missing the parade (My daughter wanted to yell “Oh captain, my captain!” to Jonathan Toews.) I made them some celebratory Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones to eat while watching the parade on TV.

Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones for the kids to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks win and parade.

These are super easy to make but you will need some time for them to dry so make sure you have plenty of time.

Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones for the kids to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks win and parade.

To make your own Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones complete with fondant pucks you will need:

Cake cones

Pairing Knife

Wilton Color Mist in silver

Chocolate Melts or Cubes

Disposable Pastry Bag

Small Package of Black Fondant (Walmart carries small Wilton packages in their craft aisle.)

Ice Cream, Yogurt or Custard of your choice

Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones for the kids to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks win and parade.

To start making your cone you will need two cake cones. Cut the top large section and part of the bottom off of one of the cones using a sharp pairing knife. The easiest way to do this is not just to cut straight through but cut and rotate the cone so that it only cuts the current section as you turn it. It comes out more even that way.

Next, you will spray the pieces with the Wilton Color Mist in silver. You can do each piece alone or fit them together and then spray them to use less spray. Let the pieces dry completely before handling.

Melt a small amount of white chocolate in the microwave according to package instructions in the disposable pastry bag. Once melted snip the tip off of the pastry bag and squeeze some of it into the smaller end on the halved cone.

While the chocolate is still melted fit it onto the upside down full cone. This will be the “”glue” that holds the pieces together and prevents ice cream melting everywhere.

While the chocolate is setting you will need to work the black fondant to soften it up. Once you have it to a workable state roll and flatten it with your hand. Then using a small fondant cutter, or the large end of a pastry tip cut out your “pucks”.

Now you can scoop up your favorite frozen treat into the Stanley Cup Cones and top with the fondant pucks and they are ready to be enjoyed. While not quite the real thing it does taste much better!

Congratulations Chicago Blackhawks on an awesome season!

 


White Chocolate Passion Fruit Cupcakes

by Jennifer Wieland
White chocolate passion fruit cupcakes

 

 

 

I have some flavor combinations that I just absolutely adore! White chocolate and passion fruit is one of them and if you follow this blog regularly then you may have seen some of my other recipes with this deliciously sweet and tropical combination. These particular white chocolate passion fruit cupcakes came to be because I wanted to make this cake that I had made before. It’s still cold and snowing here in Chicago (We got almost 6″ yesterday.) and I wanted a bit of a tropical flavored treat. I didn’t feel like making a whole big cake though and decided to make cupcakes instead to share with some friends.

White chocolate passion fruit cupcakes

I ran into a problem though when I went to the store to get all of the ingredients and discovered that I could not buy white chocolate cream cheese at any stores near me. Now I don’t know if it’s completely off the market or just not around here any longer but this meant I had to change-up my previous frosting recipe. I’ve changed it up so that it’s now made with plain, old cream cheese and it is still divine tasting!

White chocolate passion fruit cupcakes

These cupcakes are so simple and pretty and the taste is light, sweet and fruity. They are the perfect spring treat! The frosting covered in the chopped white chocolate reminds me so much of bunny tails.

Soft Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Jennifer Wieland
Soft, chewy chocolate chocolate chip cookies.

Is anyone else tired of cookies yet this holiday season? Nah, I didn’t think so. Today I had the urge to make some cookies but I didn’t know quite what I wanted to try to bake. My youngest son being the ever helpful soul that he is decided that it should definitely be a really chocolatey cookie. I’m sure this had nothing to do with the fact that he is a bona fide chocoholic at the age of seven. Since we just got home from vacation (more coming on that soon) I had to go grocery shopping anyways this morning and decided that the boy was right and we did indeed need some chocolate in the house. So I decided to make my Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies will put a smile on any chocoholics face! They are a thick, soft and chewy cookie that be a hit anywhere that you bring them. These cookies get baked just until they are set. They have a lot of sugar in them and will continue to bake while cooling on the pan. Plus, with all of the cocoa powder and the two different types of chocolate chips in these cookies the centers while still warm will look like a brownie when you bite into them.

Soft, chewy chocolate chocolate chip cookies.

This recipe will definitely be a keeper for you. These cookies are perfect not just for the holidays while gathering with family and friends. It also works for any celebrations. Do you need a little cheering up? Bake a batch of these and enjoy! (Note: I cannot be held responsible for weight gain, thigh spread or needing new jeans.) No matter what you bake them for though these chocolate chocolate chip cookies will be gone in the blink of an eye. Which is good unless of course you ate them all yourself.

Gluten-Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies

by Jennifer Wieland
Gluten Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies

For the last few months I have been diligently researching gluten-free baking. I didn’t need to do it. Nobody in my house has a reason to go gluten-free but I myself have a lot of health issues and I figured it couldn’t hurt to swap out some gluten for some gluten-free. It also doesn’t hurt that I love adding almond meal to baked goods already to give them a protein bump. I have read up so much on what flours are good for what, how people like the tastes and textures and which ones come closest to something like all-purpose flour. Then a few weeks back I found out that one of my great-nieces (No I’m not THAT old but my husband is older than me so he is that old and I’m the aunt about the same age as my nieces and nephews.) has been put on a gluten-free diet for health reasons. I figured this weekend at the family 4th of July festivities was the perfect time to break out with my first gluten-free recipe for the blog, Gluten-Free Cherry Chip Almond Oatmeal Cookies. I was really pleased with the texture and taste of these and the cookies were well liked by everyone.

During my research on gluten-free baking I learned that you could get gluten-free oatmeal now and process it in the food processor to use as a flour. I decided to use that and a bit of almond meal for this recipe because oats in cookies are very common so it was not to much of a drastic textural change. So, if you are a fan of oatmeal cookies then this will definitely be a recipe you will like but a little kicked up with the white chocolate chips and the sweet and tart dried cherries.

Golden Oreo Balls

by Jennifer Wieland
Golden Oreo Balls

FTC Disclosure

12 daysToday, I am kicking off my 12 days of sweets series. We are going to start it with a simple recipe that many of you may already be familiar with. Well, at least with the chocolate version. We love Oreos in my house! If I buy them they disappear, always leaving some members complaining that they got none. The little ones will sneak into the kitchen and abscond with them thinking they pulled one over on us. The thing is though, as much as we love chocolate in this house we can take or leave the good, old original Oreos. Even my 6-year-old who is fixated on all things chocolate prefers the Golden Oreos like the rest of us.

I always see so many recipes calling for Oreos and then I have to go and change them up some so that they work with the Golden ones instead. Oreo Balls are no exception here. I have been making them for years now and I find that we prefer the Golden Oreo Balls. Question? Am I the only one that for some reason giggles and thinks that sounds kind of dirty? I am? Okay then, we’ll move along.

If chocolate isn’t your thing and your more vanilla then I would totally suggest trying these. You will not be disappointed. They are only three ingredients and are ridiculously easy to make. You could always make the traditional ones too and then have both on hand for guests.

White Chocolate Passion Fruit Meltaways

by Jennifer Wieland

This year I was so excited to be able to be a participant in the 3rd Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. This is a charitable event that is organized by two amazing bloggers. They are Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love & Olive Oil. They started this as a way to bring food bloggers together across the world and raise money for a worthy cause. The charity this year was once again Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. They are a national non-profit organization committed to funding new therapies used in the fight against pediatric cancer, which claims the lives of more children in the US than any other disease.

There were food bloggers from eight countries that participated this year! Some great companies also partnered with the event to help match donations. Those companies were OXO, Dixie Crystals, Gold Medal & Grandma’s Molasses. Together we were able to raise a grand total of $13,778.40 which more than surpassed Julie and Lindsay’s goal of $10,000.

So how did this work? Each blogger registered and contributed a donation to the event and then each blogger was assigned three other bloggers. We then baked a new recipe to our blogs and mailed out a dozen cookies to each of the bloggers we were assigned. We in turn received a dozen cookies from the bloggers who had our names. It was great fun and the kids and I got excited with each package’s arrival to see what yummy treats we received.

All of us are posting our recipes on our blogs today. It’s quite exciting to get to see what everyone made. So who did I send to and who did I receive from? Here they are:

Bloggers I sent to:

Becky at So Very Blessed

Emily at Sweet Bella Roos

Melissa at The Baked Equation

Bloggers I received from:

Taylor at Greens & Chocolate  – Chewy Ginger Cookies

Yang at Fortune Goodies  – Matcha Green Tea Cookies with White Chocolate and Sesame Seeds

Teri at The Freshman Cook  – Frosted Gingerbread Cookies

All of the cookies I received were really good! I would definitely suggest heading to each of the sites and seeing some good pictures of the cookies and the recipes themselves. Taylor, Yang and Teri all did great in my opinion!

So what did I send to Becky, Emily & Melissa? I sent them some White Chocolate Passion Fruit Meltaways. I love these cookies and to my four-year old daughter they are like crack. The girl literally threw herself on the ground and cried when I ran out of them. These cookies are light and literally melt in your mouth when you eat them. They are a good flavor pairing as I have addressed my fixation of all things white chocolate and passion fruit previously on the blog. They make a good addition to your holiday cookie tray in that they are something people will not expect. The tropical flavor and white chocolate will be a unique taste surprise.

Ingredients
  1. 1 c. all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 c. corn starch
  3. 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
  4. 3/4 c. butter, cut into cubes
  5. 1 tbsp. passion fruit juice
  6. 1 c. white chocolate chips
  7. 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar for coating
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour, corn starch and 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream the butter and juice until smooth. Add the flour mixture and mix on low. Once it thickens scrape down the sides and then increase speed. Mix until it becomes dough-like and then stir in the chocolate.
  3. Refrigerate the dough for 45 minutes. When the dough is almost ready preheat the oven to 350° and line the baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Roll the dough into 1" balls and bake them for 10-12 minutes. Do not over bake them. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Once cooled completely roll them in the remaining confectioner's sugar.
