    Coconut Mocha Pie

    My creative process is a little…messy. It’s completely the opposite of the rest of my life which is precisely planned with a series of lists and Excel spreadsheets. My most recent, messy creation: Coconut Mocha Pie.

    Mocha Swirl Cookies

    You’ve probably noticed by now that coffee + chocolate is my jam. I’m a big fan of this flavor combo (as you can no doubt tell with a quick search of this site). So when I was looking at all the flavors on my list of Christmas cookies and saw ZERO coffee/espresso anything, I was shocked! How could I not? As such, these Mocha Swirl Cookies were born, and added to the list!

    Peppermint Mocha Cookies

    I’ve had this idea for Peppermint Mocha Cookies in my brain for *years.* I finally decided that THIS is the year to make them a reality! 2020 hasn’t been a great year, but with cookies like this, it’s not all bad, either! 😉

    To say that I have a sweet tooth would be a *colossal* understatement. I love me some sweets. ALL the sweets. Of all those sweets, cream-based desserts have a special place in my heart. They’re delicious and comforting. Whipped cream and pastry cream and custards… (*drools*) I also have a soft spot for chocolate and espresso…so this Mocha Tart is riiiiight up my alley.

    Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

    It’s beginning to look a lot like…peppermint! It’s after Thanksgiving, so I’m now (officially!) in full Christmas mode. Peppermint is just something that screams the holidays to me. I’m not a big fan of peppermint on its own, but pair it with chocolate and I am IN. Better yet, let’s add some espresso, too. These Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes will get you in the holiday spirit!
