Happy National Dessert Day! –Roy’s Melting Hot Chocolate Souffle Recipe!!! ;)

Happy Monday everyone!

Today, October 14, is National Dessert Day, which means if you haven’t done so, CELEBRATE the day by treating yourself to all things SWEET!!!!!  Cookies, cake, cupcakes, candies, ice cream-  anything to your heart’s desire darlings!

My absolute favorite dessert, which is by far the BEST in the world, a heavenly creation from Roy’s Restaurants… Classic Melting Hot Chocolate Soufflé! I have compared it to every other similar dessert that I can find in other restaurants, and absolutely nothing can beat this delicious, decadent piece of sin… 🙂

OMG yummy.

Officially referenced from Roy’s Restaurant Recipes page, you can attempt to make your very own Melting Hot Chocolate Soufflé:

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup sugar
3 tbsp. cornstarch
4 eggs plus 4 egg yolks
12 tbsp. butter
8 oz. semisweet dark chocolate (make sure to use a good quality)

PREPARATION:

In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. In a separate bowl, mix eggs and yolks together. In a saucepan, bring butter to a simmer, then add the chocolate. Mix until the chocolate is smooth and begins to simmer along the edges. Combine this chocolate mixture with the sugar and cornstarch and mix thoroughly. Add eggs and mix at low speed until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Refrigerate overnight in a bowl.

Preheat oven to 375º. Line 4 metal soufflé rings with parchment paper and coat with non-stick spray. On a baking sheet, place each ring on a square of parchment paper. Fill 2/3 of each ring with the filling. Bake for 28-30 minutes. Remove the baking sheet. While holding each mold with tongs, slide a metal spatula underneath and transfer to a plate. Gently lift the mold off, remove the paper and serve with ice cream.

Of course, if you are not the in the mood to bake, or are just simply craving it at the moment, you can visit any of Roy’s Oahu locations below:

What’s Bakin Miss Honey? Peanut Butter & Toffee Cookies ;)

Sunday evening my inner domestic goddess decided she wanted to bake cookies.

Using scraps I found in my cupboard and fridge, and a little bit of help from google (on substituting baking powder for baking soda), I created my super delish version of Peanut Butter & Toffee Cookies.

INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Natural Honey Peanut Butter
1 large egg
1/2 cup Heath toffee bits

MIXING DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together.
In a separate bowl (large) beat butter and sugar using an electric mixer- setting on high. Beat until light and fluffy.
Add peanut butter and egg and beat until smooth.
Change mixer setting to low. Slowly add flour mixture.
Stir in toffee.

BAKING DIRECTIONS

Drop 1 tablespoon of batter onto baking sheets about 1 inch apart
Flatten with a fork if you like.
Bake until edges are golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!!!! Tastes even yummier with milk!!!

Keep calm and have an Oreo Cupcake

To help endure this dreary weather, I decided to make cupcakes in celebration of Oreo’s 100th Birthday.  With the help of two of the coolest teens you’ll ever meet, we were able to create a batch of delicious Oreo Cupcakes.

Below is a basic recipe for Oreo Cupcakes, Miss Honey’s version.  I deviated from the original Death by Oreo Cupcake Recipe, just a little bit.  The cupcake itself, as you will see,  is overloaded with oreo cookies.  Instead of making an oreo-filled frosting I decided to go with  plain vanilla frosting as it evens out the taste so you can enjoy the oreos and the cupcake bite by bite!  I hope you love them as much as we did.

Here ya go::
