Coconut Peach Cake – So Divine!

If you are looking for a show stopping summer dessert, this coconut peach cake is for you! A bit of work but worth it.  And to make it a bit easier, but still so delicious, you can dress up the cake with coconut that hasn’t been toasted (it will make a gorgeous white cake).

Chocolate Pecan Brownie Pie

Tar Heel Pie Recipe

This decadent brownie pie recipe comes from Cooks Country Magazine, however, they refer to it as Tar Heel Pie.  What I’m sure you’ll call it is “delicious”.  I knew I had to make it when the last line of description read “For people who like brownies so fudgy and barely cooked that they are too messy to out out of hand, this pie was a a must”.  Hello – I’m waving my hands!!!

Double Chocolate Cream Pie – TOTALLY DIVINE!

homemade chocolate pie

I recently started subscribing to Oprah’s magazine and I absolutely love it!  Great articles AND great recipes.  Like this double chocolate cream pie.  It starts off with a delicious pastry crust that’s easy to make.  Follow that with a layer of chocolate pie filling (think pudding but better) that is absolutely dreamy.  Top if off with a billowy chocolate whipped cream and you know you’ve got a winner!

If the recipe seems like too much work (although it truly is worth it) here are some shortcuts you can take:

  • You can use a frozen pie crust and just pre-baked it as directed.
  • You can use chocolate whipped topping in the tub for the topping.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

You can tell from my posts that I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  LOVE!  So when Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO posted this recipe, I just had to share it.  The peanut butter layer is like a cheesecake filling thanks to the addition of cream cheese.  Rich, decadent and perfect!

A timesaver for this recipe is to use your favorite brownie mix for the bottom layer.
