A beautiful, spicy Cake traditionally served anytime, but very popular at Christmas. It's made in a bundt pan. The addition of Guiness stout makes for a light and feathery texture. Recipe comes from 'The Irish Spirit' cookbook I love so much.
Serve this dark, spicy confection with fresh whipping cream.
I've never been able to tell the difference between this imposter and the real deal. Easy, Easy, Easy!!
I actually overheard this recipe at a meeting when I was working as a journalist. I tried it, and it's a winner! You might be able to get more than 70 cookies out of this recipe.
I’ve been making this pork posole stew for years. It’s simple to put together and fills the house with wonderful smells. I sometimes add a couple potatoes and carrots to get the southwestern equivalent of Beef Stew. Source is an out-of-print cookbook called “Blue Corn and Chocolate”
My sister's co-worker brought these to a party and they were quite a hit. I don't know where the recipe came from originally.
"Bark" is an artificial chocolate or vanilla candy coating/confectioner's coating used to make a treat called almond bark and can be found at most grocery stores near the chocolate chips.
You can use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips if you don't have almond bark, but I have found that almond bark melts better and is easier to work with.
This recipe is from TOH. It did not list the chef's name. I made these today and they turned out really cute. I used an orange M & M for the nose instead of the candy corn and used white almond bark for coating. I didn't measure out the peanut butter either. I just spread the crackers straight from the jar.
This is a Rick Bayless recipe. I made this for a Mexican themed dinner party and thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I took a bite! Oh soooo good!! Be sure to use Mexican chocolate, as it is different from all others. This cake is best when slightly warm and would go great with vanilla, caramel or cinnamon ice cream, but is also wonderful all by itself.
Based on a recipe from Sir Hugh Plat's "Delightes for Ladies" (1609), although he wouldn't have used vanilla or allspice, which are both New World foods and not commonly found in Europe until after 1750.
