Hot Chocolate Pudding — Most Popular Pin of the Week

by in Community, December 25th, 2016

Hot Chocolate PuddingNo, this pudding isn’t served hot a la hot chocolate. Instead, this rich, creamy treat takes its flavor cues from the cozy drink you know and love with the help of hot chocolate mix. That’s right. This week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week is made with the same mix you’d use to make a cup of cocoa, plus a bit of cornstarch, which helps the mixture thicken and turn into a pudding. When it comes to serving the pudding, the chefs in Food Network Kitchen explain, “Our hot chocolate pudding is topped with whipped cream, but as on the real thing, mini marshmallows would be great too.”

by in In Season, Recipes, September 9th, 2016

Caramel Apple CheesecakeA crisp, tart, ruby-red apple dipped in luscious caramel and served on a stick is the quintessential fall treat for kids and grownups alike. Which means it’s time to go apple picking or swing by your local farmers’ market to snag the first fruit of the season plucked straight from the orchard. Then, get to the delicious work of making our Perfect Caramel Apples, or one of these decadent desserts featuring this classic duo.

Bobby isn’t afraid to “gild the lily” when it comes to dessert. Some chefs would call it a day after whipping up a perfectly creamy cheesecake, but Bobby tops his Caramel Apple Cheesecake (pictured above) with fresh apple slices sautéed with apple brandy, a homemade spiked caramel sauce and crunchy toasted almonds.

Dessert Without Chocolate? I Tried It, and You Should Too

by in Food Network Chef, Recipes, September 7th, 2016

Angel Food CakeMy husband and I have a long-standing inside joke that we play on each other at restaurants. We sit down, we look at the menu, and then while we discuss our ordering plans (“What looks good to you? I’m thinking the short rib and roasted Brussels sprouts …”), we try to trick each other by picking the exact opposite of what we want to order, to see if our partner knows us well enough to call it out as a prank. It’s a subtle and super-funny game (to us, anyway — try it and you be the judge). Anyway, I have a “tell,” which is ordering a non-chocolate dessert. If I ever try to pass off a non-chocolate dessert order as my real plan, Philippe, my husband, knows immediately that I am bluffing. Apparently, I believe that dessert, by definition, includes chocolate. In fact, it wasn’t until I married Philippe that I truly understood that not everyone must have chocolate in their dessert in order for it to count. (For the record, Philippe loves chocolate, but in a healthier, more balanced way that allows him to order the occasional lemon cake or apple tart.) (Huh?!)
