Peanut Butter Rochers

Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate?!?! It's a classic combo for good reason -- the ingredients work incredibly together. You'd be hard pressed to find a person who doesn't like it. In this recipe, we're making a silky smooth, creamy peanut butter praline, enrobing it in dark chocolate and then coating in candied coconut crumbs. Holy dreams coming true, Batman. Do yourself and those you love a favour and make these babies. Russell … [Read more...]

Reishi Coffee Crispie Cups

Chocolate Covered Coffee Bars add the most lovely texture to the cake without overdoing it or ruining the … [Read more...]

So, needless to say, I was very pleased with the resulting recipe. … [Read more...]

Raw Strawberry Almond Granola Bars

As a child, I loved granola bars, especially the ones with the chocolate coating. I'd eat the chocolate coating and then the rest of the bar was, like, second shocker as to why I became a chocolatier! :) But these bars themselves are so amazing that you don't even need the chocolate... however, let's be honest in saying everything benefits from chocolate. These bars use a couple of past recipes I shared with you, the Maple Oat … [Read more...]
