Chomp. Chewy.  Gooey.  Messy.  Rich.  Satisfying.  Chocolatey. That’s what these Nanaimo Bars are. I am from Canada (born and raised), but I have never actually eaten a Nanaimo Bar before these.  Supposedly they are a Canadian classic, but that’s news to me!  Before moving to the United States (and discovering FoodGawker), I had never even […]

As a kid, I was always a fan of milk chocolate.  When I went trick-or-treating on Halloween, candies containing dark chocolate were the first things I’d give away to the other kids, especially the York Peppermint Patties!  I traded them for my preferred sweets, like Hershey’s bars, Snickers, M&Ms and Twix.  Milk chocolate is softer, sweeter, and […]

Okay.  Get ready.  For these are the most strange, yet most delicious bonbons you will ever make and eat.  And the word “bonbon” is the closest term I can come up with when it comes to naming… these.  First, I called them peanut butter “pockets,” then “truffles,” then “balls.”  But balls didn’t really sound elegant […]

Yes, as promised…  FUDGE.  And, as you can see…  CHOCOLATE FUDGE. But did you notice?  THREE.LAYERS.OF.CHOCOLATE.FUDGE. And yes, it’s sugar-free!  Even though I’m usually not a fan of sugar-free products because of all the strange additives and unhealthy, artificial sweeteners (like Splenda), I saw these bars at Whole Foods and just had to look at the […]
