5 on friday - chocolate edition!

Friday, May 7, 2010

I thought it was high time to pay homage to my favorite treat.  And I had a few more than 5 this week, so consider this an early Mother's Day gift from me to you. :)

1. The idea of baking in my slow cooker is a little scary.  But for this recipe for peanut butter cup cake, I might be willing to try it!


 2. Almond Butter Cookies - I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate.  But almond butter and chocolate sounds like a delectable grown up version!


3. I won't reveal the secret ingredient in these brownies.  You have to click the link to find out. 


4. And who doesn't like a surprise in the middle of a cupcake!  This one has a cream cheese chocolate chip center.


5. Chocolate Oatmeal Cake.  Sounds amazing.  But who knew how ooey gooey yummy it would look? (Thanks Good (& CHEAP) Eats for exposing me to this recipe, and my sister Kristen for exposing me to Good (& CHEAP) Eats!)

6. These are a remake of the Starbucks Oatmeal Fudge Bars.  I've never tried them, but they look divine!

7. Something about chocolate being just slightly melted makes it SO much yummier!  Nothing like warm chocolate chip cookies or slightly melted M&Ms that have been sitting in the car (um, yeah, I'm probably the only weirdo there).  These Molten Cakes take advantage of that yumminess!


8. And the easiest chocolate treat recipe goes to Real Simple.  I've made these often and they do not dissapoint.  If you use the reduced fat rolls and just a few chocolate chips, they aren't even that bad for you!


And don't forget to head to Starbucks for a half price mocha frapp this afternoon!
