I am a huge fan of peanut butter cookies so when I came across these 4 ingredient dark chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies on pinterest I had to make them right away! The 3 ingredients for the cookies are peanut butter, dates, and eggs with the dark chocolate for the dip being the fourth ingredient. I was super curious to see how they would turn out! They are so easy to make, you simply puree the peanut butter and dates until smooth and add the eggs, for into cookie and bake before, optionally, dipping in the melted dark chocolate. As far as peanut butter cookies go, these 4 ingredient dark chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies are really good! The date sweetener is very nice, combo-ing so well with the peanut butter and the chocolate! They are also healthier than regular peanut butter cookies so I will be making these peanut butter and date cookies a lot!

No, your eyes haven't deceived you. These sweet snacks consist of chocolate chip cookie dough sandwiched between two crunchy, salty crackers that are then covered in chocolate. They're a unique dessert to bring along to potlucks, but we don't blame you if you want to keep them all at home.

Without getting too much into the science, tempering is what gives chocolate that satisfying snap when you bite into it. Tempered chocolate hardens quickly at room temperature with a smooth, shiny finish. Think candy bars and those hollow chocolate Easter bunnies.
Untempered chocolate, on the other hand, takes much longer to dry and sometimes ends up with a dull, blotchy finish. It never fully hardens, so it’s usually soft when you bite into it, and it melts very easily in your hands.
So how do you temper chocolate?

Our Chocolate-Dipped Banana Bread Slices elevate a classic favorite to an extra-special treat. Fresh baked banana bread is dipped in melted chocolate, then allowed to set, creating a chocolate shell. You may also choose to drizzle the chocolate on top instead. This method can be adapted to your favorite banana bread or other loaf recipe. You can also try melting other flavored chips, like butterscotch, peanut butter or mint chocolate- or even dip in tempered chocolate!

These were incredibly simple to make. All you need is chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, peppermint extract and green food coloring. With 4 ingredients, and a minty chocolate taste that you’ll love, what excuse do you have for not making these? Am I right?!
These things kind of make me delusional because I make myself believe that zero calories are involved. After all, it’s minty….? Yeah, I know I’m grasping at straws here, but at the end of the day I’m not eating the entire sheet of mint bark. (…or am I? ;))

This is one of my favourite chocolate recipes. It has silky smooth texture to it while having a rich taste to the caramel. This filling always reminds me of the drink Horlicks.
A few tips on getting a smooth caramel, firstly, have the pan on a low/medium heat and add your sugar gradually. If added all at once, you run the risk of burning the caramel and creating a bitter aftertaste to it.

Here’s an way to make amazing chocolates at home. No more spending $2 each for a filled chocolate at those expensive chocolate stores. You can make delicious filled chocolates at home, customize them with your favorite fillings and have some fun while doing it. When my wife tried these the first time, she couldn’t believe how easy they were to make and wondered what she would be doing with all the money she would have saved over the years if she had made her own chocolates instead of buying them at fancy chocolatiers. These also make a great gift for friends.
