White Chocolate Mocha Cookies

In Chocolate, Desserts on October 26, 2008 at 1:10 am

This is my most useful cookie recipe, to be exact this is the one recipe that I make the most. ever.

Well, the obvious question is why? I`ll tell you- this recipe is easy to make, and takes no time. Every time I make it everybody (and I do mean everybody) loves it , and the most important- this recipe always turn out great.

If you plan to try this one, please pay attention to one thing- the oven temperature. Please don`t be tempted to bake it a higher temperature. It would simply mess the final result.

Fudge Brownies with Walnuts and White Chocolate

In Chocolate, Desserts on September 14, 2008 at 6:34 pm

This brownies recipe is one of the best that I`ve ever made, the greatest thing about it is that you can play with it and add or omit whatever you like, and still get a great brownie. To my opinion, you can reduce the sugar, and use only one cup (that is, if you are using white chocolate, that adds a lot of sweetness). You can also add chocolate chips, pecans, a bit of alcohol (Irish cream, Frangelico…) or whatever you have at home.

If you wish that your brownies will have a clean look, and that applies especially to the fudgey ones, make sure to freeze the brownies after you bake them, and them cut them with a very sharp knife. Even if you are tight in time, never cut brownies while still hot, or you will get a crumbly mess.

Dark and White Chocolate Mousse Cake

In Chocolate, Desserts on August 30, 2008 at 1:06 pm

This is the cake that I made for my brother, before he left to his (very) long trip overseas.
Oddly enough, this is the only mousse cake that I made for my brother that came out decent looking! You see, every time I tried to make him a nice cake for any special occasion, something would do wrong (well, kind of…), so I’m happy that it turned out ok this time.

Now, as for the cake- This is not the simplest cake, but it is not hard to make as you may think. Yes, it takes some time, but believe me, it is so worth it, this is THE cake if you want to impress someone, and the taste is really good as well.

So, if you have some kind of special occasion that requires a nice looking (and nice tasting…) cake, give this one a chance.

Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

In Chocolate, Desserts on August 4, 2008 at 7:24 pm

These cookies were made for my brother, and there is a reason why – Because of the fact that my brother (not Asaf, the other one) is going away for a trip that will go on for at least 6 months, and because he is my number one cookie consumer, and my number one food critic, I’ve decided to make him cookies twice a week. Don’t think that I make this because I’m a super nice sister (just ask Asaf…) but just because I do nothing all day (unless you are consider staring at the TV as an intellectual thing), and because I wont have anyone too make cookies for 6 months (anyone interested?).
If somebody is looking for a little sister that will make him cookies whenever he wishes, just let me know!

So, for the recipe part. This time, because all my dark chocolate was over (who the heck finishes 3 kilos of chocolate in two months?!), I was looking for a cookie recipe with white chocolate, and this is the recipe that I found.
The cookies turned out OK, not very special, but good enough.

Oh, if anybody got great cookie recipe, please send it to me, I have 2 weeks to make 4 recipes, and I’m in desperate need for a brilliant cookie recipe.

And a little cookie tip to finish – if you want your white chocolate will stay white after baking, just divide the amount to two, put one part in the cookie batter, and bake the cookie as listed. About 2-3 minutes before the end of the baking, sprinkle the cookies with the leftover chocolate, and continue to bake until cookies are done.
