We love simple and easy treats, and these cookies are a chocolate lover’s dream. Similar to brownies, this cookie recipe calls for lots of eggs and cocoa powder to keep the center of the cookies soft, chewy and loaded with chocolate.

After mixing the wet and dry ingredients in two GoodCook Touch 5 Qt Mixing Bowls, the ingredients are combined and the dough is placed in a resealable freezer bag and chilled in the fridge overnight. Chilling the dough helps to keep the cookies perfectly formed when baking.

When ready to bake, line a GoodCook 15×21” Mega Cookie Sheet with Sweet Creations Natural Parchment Paper. The parchment paper is chlorine-free and non-stick, so there’s no need to grease the baking sheet. Form 1” balls with the dough and roll in powdered sugar. Bake the sugar-coated dough balls until cracks form on the outer layer and the cookie is set.

Now you’ve got a big batch of indulgently fudgy and delicious cookies to share!

Vintage Recipe Favorite: Hot Fudge Pie

Retro Recipe Favorite! Vintage Hot Fudge Pie

Hot Fudge Pie – A dense chocolate pie that is super easy to make.  Serve warm topped with ice cream and hot fudge for an decadent treat!

I can’t believe that summer is over, and school is starting. Where did the time go?! My son started 5th grade this year, our last year in elementary school. I have no idea how we got here so fast! He didn’t even want me to take him to school on the first day; he wanted to ride his bike by himself. I am just going to have to drown my sorrows in chocolate. Pretty sure this chocolate hot fudge pie will do.

Hot Fudge Pie - A dense chocolate pie that is super easy to make.  Serve warm topped with ice cream and hot fudge for an decadent treat!

I have seen Hot Fudge Pie all over the internet, so I had to come up with my own version. Though this seems like a hot, new idea, it’s actually a totally retro recipe. Classic and delicious, there are hundreds of ways to make Hot Fudge Pie. I opted for no crust, because that is just going to take away from the chocolate taste. And of course I had to serve it while it was warm and top it with ice cream and hot fudge. Because…well, why not? Rich, chocolatey, fudgy, and oh so good. This quick and easy recipe is like a cookie had a kid with a brownie. Gooey and delicious, with a happy crunch around the edges. Seriously so delish, I’m starting to think Hot Fudge Pie will cure any chocolate cravings, and drown away all the sorrows in the world. Top it with ice cream and you’ll be happy forever, methinks.

Plus, hot fudge pie is so easy to make. Just 5 minutes, put it in the pan, and let it bake. Good Cook 9 inch pie plate is the perfect size. And that perfectly round giant scoop of ice cream? Yeah, the Good Cook Smart Scoop did that. You need to top this chocolate pie with a giant scoop of ice cream when it is still warm. It gets all gooey and melty, and oh so good. I am drooling again just thinking about it!

   4-Ingredient Robin's Egg Fudge

It’s here, you guys. 

No, I’m not talking about Spring! Nope, not talking about Easter, either. 

I’m talking about Candy Season. 

Yeah, it’s a thing. A totally delicious thing. 

One would think that Halloween would be the candy capital of the year, but in my house it’s this time of year. 

Simple white chocolate that's loaded with Easter candies!

We have egg hunts at the church, egg hunts at both grandmas’ houses and, of course, the Easter Bunny drops by and hides a few candy-filled eggs. So, yeah. We will be drowning in pastel colored candy any time now! And, to be perfectly honest, I can’t wait. Especially for the peanut butter eggs. Is anyone else just straight addicted to those guys? 

As much as I love to sit around and down handfuls of candy while watching Netflix, I try to be a little more responsible. And by responsible, I mean that I add handfuls of candy to other sugary things and call it dessert. Seems legit, right? Being a grown up is the best.

I went ahead and grabbed a bag of the mini Robin Eggs while I was at the grocery store this week and stuck them in the easiest ever fudge recipe. 

Simple white chocolate that's loaded with Easter candies!

The thing is, I’m not usually very good at fudge. It turns out soupy or it turns out grainy or it turns out like a rock. This fudge recipe, though? Nope. Can’t mess it up, even if you try! You have to give it a shot.

This easy white chocolate fudge is made from a base of powdered sugar, cream cheese, and melted white chocolate. You won’t even need a candy thermometer for this one! Don’t you love recipes that aren’t super fussy?

Once you’ve got your fudge all mixed up, you just chop up a handful of Robin Eggs and stir those right in. Spread it all out into a foil lined 8×8 baking dish, refrigerate for at least 4 hours, cut it into colorful little squares, and you have the most fun, Springiest treat ever! 

Feel free to swap in your favorite pastel colored candy here! You could even stir in some sprinkles if you really wanted to get fancy.

Simple white chocolate that's loaded with Easter candies!

Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownie Bars

Meet Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownie Bars! Sometimes you want a brownie. And sometimes you want a piece of cheesecake. Sometimes it just makes sense to combine the two! 

These Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownie Bars are decadent, chocolatey, and have just the slightest kick from Irish Cream. These are going to be a hit at your St. Patrick’s Day get together. These are a perfect make ahead dessert too. They get better and better in the fridge. 

You can take a knife and drag it through the batters to make swirls, but I like the way two distinct layers look. Resist the urge to cut into these right away. The flavors develop overnight in the fridge and when chilled, are much easier to cut into clean squares.
