American Classics: Homemade Chocolate Graham Crackers

Sweets Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

Sure, you can buy chocolate graham crackers at the store, but making them at home is super easy. As a bonus, when you make your own graham cracker dough you can cut out your crackers into whatever shape you please! The eggless, easy-to-roll-out dough makes baking time fun with even the littlest kitchen helper. More

Like their store-bought counterparts, these graham crackers have a mild chocolatey flavor while still retaining that slightly salty, honey-tinged wheatiness of a regular graham cracker. More

American Classics: Easter Egg Cake

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 1 comment

Growing up, Easter always meant tons of chocolate and pastel shaded candies. Anything egg or bunny shaped was fair game for the table, too. So naturally when I saw a vintage 1950s back-of-the box recipe for a decorated Easter Egg Cake on Pinterest, I had to give it a shot. More

American Classics: Matzo 'Crack' S'mores

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 3 comments

Last year I put together a slideshow of Matzo Crack recipes for Passover. This year's post was inspired by a tweet I saw by Serious Eats New York editor Max Falkowitz that went a little something like this: "What to do with Matzo for Passover: Eat with Charoset. Make Matzo Crack. Cry. End of list." Which got me thinking what else in the dessert realm could be done with matzo. Then it hit me. Chocolate covered Matzo 'Crack' would make a great base for s'mores. Break out the Kosher for Passover marshmallows! More

American Classics: Chocolate Kix Toffee Bark

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 3 comments

There's something wonderfully nostalgic about cereal-based desserts. While Kix was a favorite cereal in our house growing up, I had never thought of turning it into a dessert. Luckily my well-worn copy of Betty Crocker's Cooky Book, had a recipe for Kix Toffee among the "Company-Best Cookies" recipes. We won't tell your "company" that this recipe is simple. Stupidly simple and really good. More
