Strawberry Chocolate Chip Love Spell Cake

Charm your beloved on Valentine’s Day with a slice of Strawberry-Chocolate Chip Love Spell Cake!

Cannoli Cake

Sweet ricotta cheese filling separates three moist yellow cake layers in this Italian pastry-inspired cake. It’s frosted with a duo of mascarpone buttercream and rich chocolate ganache, and crowned with six irresistible mini cannoli.

Marzipan Mousse with Candy Cane Almonds

Marzipan Mousse is rich and creamy with intense almond flavor. A topping of chopped Sconza Chocolate Candy Cane Almonds is the perfect complement and so season appropriate!

This no-cook divinity recipe takes the guess work (and candy thermometer!) out of making the classic Christmas candy. This year’s advent of treats has an unintentional theme: Retro Sweets!

Gorgonzola Walnut Tartlets

These deliciously nutty tartlets are quick, one-bite wonders with assertive blue cheese flavor! They take minutes to make and can be served warm or chilled. Say hello to my new favorite hors d’oeuvre recipe! These little bites are simple to make because they use ready-made phyllo tart shells. The combination of crunchy phyllo, creamy Gorgonzola […]

Maple Caramel Walnut Pie

This walnut pie has a luxurious caramel filling that is made with maple syrup and real salted butter. Butter gives the caramel exceptional flavor and creaminess, and an all-butter pie dough provides the most delicious flaky crust. If we didn’t have pie each Thanksgiving, well, it wouldn’t feel like the holiday! There’s usually at least […]

Ham and Swiss Dutch Baby
