Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Recipe

I haven't been active for the past week on PhamFatale.com. We've spent a crazy holiday season, baking a ton! Here's one of the many chocolate chip cookie versions we made during the week. We used chocolate we received over Christmas, so these feature M&Ms and chunks of coarsely chopped Godiva salted caramel milk chocolate bars.

The secret to perfect texture for this timeless classic is to closely watch the baking time. Don't over-bake them but also don't under-cook them or you'll end up with just cookie dough! Happy baking!

Christmas Dessert: Macaroon Parfait Recipe Recipe

Are you still looking for the perfect dessert to serve this holiday season? This dessert contains all the three elements I would usually enjoy as a child during the Christmas season in France: citrus, coconut and chocolate. And how did I accomplish such a feat? By creating a kumquat macaroon parfait, of course! 

To make the dessert Christmas-themed, I made two colored chocolate puddings. One was prepared with white chocolate powder and green-colored chocolate chips and the other with strawberry powdered drink mix and red chocolate chips. The base and top of the dessert were made with macaroons.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

12.13.13 by Jackie

The girls and I have been baking up a storm this holiday season. Here's the recipe for their favorite cookie from this week’s concoctions. We made them without flour, butter or white sugar. The only requirement is the use of a generous amount of peanut butter, brown sugar and a few Christmasy-colored chocolate chips. The result was super gooey, soft and pillowy cookies.

The girls suggested we bake as many varieties of cookies as possible until Christmas Day. I can already tell what my New Year’s resolution is going to be!

Chocolate Pear Almond Tart Recipe Recipe

This month, we're going to bake a lot in anticipation of Thanksgiving. So start pinning the dessert recipes you like, roll up your sleeves and get baking! The first tart recipe of a long series is flavored with one of my favorite flavor combinations: chocolate, pear and almond. 

I prepared a chocolate crust and made a creamy chocolate almond filling. The fruit topping was freshly picked from Lulu's uncle's tree. After a trip to the oven, out came our first Thanksgiving-worthy dessert!

Chocolate and Orange Spritz Cookies Recipe

I love to bake cookies. And when I have free time, I usually make cookie dough to freeze so whenever we have surprise guests, I have warm cookies freshly baked out of the oven. Today, I prepared a small batch of spritz cookies, which I flavored with cocoa and orange to match the season. These "gâteaux" (cookies in French) were made with brown sugar, so once they're baked, the house is filled with the scent of delicious chocolate-y caramel.

As I've mentioned in the past, baby Aria's eating habits are very similar to my husband’s. She loves sweets. She finished almost half the batch this afternoon before the girls even got back home from school. Naughty girl!
