Brew up a cup of this rich and creamy White Hot Chocolate made with real raw cacao butter and relax by the fire.

Quick & easy Hazelnut Fudge made with dark chocolate is a delightful treat for Christmas… or any time of year!

Serve velvety dairy-free Chocolate Ganache over ice cream, brownies or cake.
I’ve been making dairy-free, vegan chocolate ganache for years and didn’t think about sharing it here until recently. The recipe is as simple as can be with only two ingredients –dark chocolate and coconut milk.

Homemade and dairy free Peppermint Hot Chocolate to keep you warm and cozy on a cold winter’s night.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate is easy to make, and far better than the instant hot chocolate that comes in a package, which is loaded with sugar and definitely not dairy free.

We had a huge snowstorm here last night and I made my family a batch of this warming Mexican Hot Chocolate. A hot drink is perfect for a cold day, and it’s even better when warming spices such as cinnamon, chili and cayenne are added.
There is a ton of cinnamon in this recipe, so if you’re not a cinnamon fan, you might want to reduce the amount from 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon. Why do I use so much cinnamon? ... read more →
