Andrea loves Saltine crackers. She was very happy to discover this easy candy recipe that uses the crackers to add a nice crunch.
When Andrea was nine years old, she discovered cream puffs. She wanted to learn to bake them and would keep asking for me to teach her. Finally, I gave her a recipe for French Profiteroles and let her make a batch. Was she surprised to learn they were cream puffs.
While we usually eat these with whipped cream and homemade nutella or chocolate sauce, they are also very good with vanilla ice cream.
Andrea wanted a less sweet grain free brownie. It is slightly crumbly and a little dry, but goes wonderfully with ice cream or whipped cream.
If you want it sweeter, replace part or all of the unsweetened chocolate with semi sweet baking chocolate.
I discovered tiramisu when I let Mark chose a dessert for me at a waterpark. He chose something new to both of us in a chocolate bowl. I shared a bite with him and we were both hooked.
