How to make a WINEapple ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Chocolate #Wine #Pineapple

What is a WINEapple? It’s a pineapple made out of chocolate truffles and wine  … a gift from my kids for my birthday this year. I don’t know which of them thought of the idea but they were super excited to make this for me, a combination of two of my very favorite things. They […]


Chocolate Caramel Nut Magic Bars

Chocolate Caramel Nut Magic Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #orgasmic #chewy #layer #bars #recipe

I lied. The name of these bars is not “Chocolate Caramel Nut Magic Bars” … the real name for this recipe came about because I gave a box of these lovely bars to my yoga friend for her birthday. She told everyone at yoga how wonderful they were … so then I had to make them […]


Pretzel English Toffee

Pretzel English Toffee ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #candy #ImperialSugar

It occurred to me last winter when I was in my holiday baking mode that putting salty pretzels in toffee would be a brilliant idea … an idea akin to the saltine toffee that many people make, but with more crunch. So I made it … and it was wonderful … and everyone loved it […]

My mother has been trying new flavors of zucchini bread … she told me the most popular flavor she’s made lately is the peanut butter one. She makes hers with peanut butter chips … my mom is not a big fan of chocolate, but she does like peanut butter. Mom didn’t give me a recipe, […]


Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cherry #brownie #recipe

I made brunch for an event this month and I really wanted something chocolate … every event needs a little chocolate, don’t you think? I thought and thought upon it and brownies seemed to be the thing that was calling to me. The fresh sweet cherries in my fridge decided to join the party and […]


Easy Peasy Chocolate Fondue

Easy Peasy Chocolate Fondue ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #5minute #chocolate #fondue #recipe

This super easy chocolate fondue cooks in the microwave, so it’s ready in less than 5 minutes. It will take you longer to assemble the dippers than it will to make the fondue! You see, since I made the cheese fondue, I had to make a chocolate fondue too! Because a fondue party just isn’t complete […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #PB #oats #breakfast #chocolate #recipe

Adapted slightly from Food Faith Fitness Oh dear foodie friends, I did it! After 4 months, I am within 1 lb. of my weight-loss goal. Some people might say I should wait to celebrate until I’m there, but (a couple pounds ago) one of my friends looked at me like it’s time to stop … I said I […]

Pretty Peanut Butter Cup Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #peanutbutter #truffles #recipe

Sometimes when someone tastes something I’ve made and makes a comment, it sticks in my mind forever. So it was with this recipe… I remember one of my friends coming up to me and saying, “Oh my gosh, Ann, these truffles are like Reese’s peanut butter cups … on steroids!” I can’t help but think of that […]

Maple Strawberry Chocolate Chip Waffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #breakfast #recipe #waffles

My teenage daughter made these beautiful waffles last weekend. We had strawberries so she decided to slice some up for her waffle and look at this beautiful presentation! She made her waffle look like a spring flower. Her waffle looked so pretty that we decided we should take pictures. This waffle recipe is one that she makes […]


Dark Chocolate Red Wine Fudge

Dark Chocolate Red Wine Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #chocolate #wine #fudge #recipe

Red wine & dark chocolate are a heavenly match and something I just HAD to try. And then I did add just a bit of hot pepper to make it dance on the tongue. It’s not spicy at all, but it has a beautiful tingle with the creamy chocolate fudge. This lovely little fudge was […]


Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn

Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #spicy #popcorn #gift #recipe

  This popcorn is so simple and such a simple gift to make for your friends and family this holiday season! My boyfriend is responsible for this post … I asked him if he likes popcorn (because I frickin’ LOVE popcorn) and, much to my dismay, he said he isn’t a big popcorn fan … but […]


Chocolate Chipotle Pecan Pie

I’m so glad that #Choctoberfest is here!

Peanut Butter Cookie S'Mores ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookie #smore #recipe

I’ve seen these cookie S’Mores making their way across the interwebs and decided that my kids and I just HAD to try them. My son was not on board with this idea (he prefers to eat his cookies and marshmallows and chocolate UN-toasted), but my daughter and her friend were totally up for it, so […]


Triple Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Triple Chocolate Zucchini Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #wholewheat #darkchocolate #muffins #zucchini

These are everything you want in a dark decadent, super chocolatey muffin, plus some hidden healthy stuff. You cannot taste the zucchini. Seriously. You won’t notice it’s there … (except your body will thank you for eating veggies). And there’s whole wheat flour … and a little flaxmeal … and yogurt. This is starting to sound […]


Mini Chocolate Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Mini Chocolate Cheesecake Cookie Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #mini #chocolate #dessert #recipe

These little cookie cups are really quite easy to put together, and they are fancy and decadent and satisfying too. The cheesecake mixture requires no baking and it’s very chocolatey and creamy good. I made the cookie cups Saturday, painted them with chocolate on Sunday morning, then made the filling and stuffed them Sunday afternoon. It […]

Those of you whose favorite treat at the Dairy Queen is the Peanut Buster Parfait, raise your hand! I am right there with you.
