Dark Chocolate Halloween!

So during this past week of Halloween I celebrated the time when the veil between the worlds thins by making chocolate offerings for the spirits. White chocolate, bitter sweet chocolate, and toasted almonds prepared on 10/30 and then some chocolate cookies made on 10/31.

While making these chocolate cookies, i also made cayenne spiced dark chocolate hot cocoa for myself! I must confess that I have been going chocolate crazy. I even put cocoa powder on my pancakes two days in a row! Other than the cocoa powder craze, i made oatmeal bread earlier this week and have been eating peanut butter, cheese and honey sandwiches ever since, I combined that with the cocoa powder on Halloween, and for the morning after, i created a modified version of peanute butter, cream cheese, banana slices, dark cocoa powder and honey with oolong tea. These are also sour cream pancakes so they are very filling and nutritious :D I have the recipe for Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes written down in my recipe books, and i don’t quite remember where i got it but it makes wonderful pancakes!

Here are links to pages that have the recipe for Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes:

I love both of those blogs and read Smitten Kitchen Voraciously! The Pioneer Woman’s page is great for those cooking for a large group of people and has wonderful classic recipes. Since i cook for few, I tend to go with with the recipes that Smitten Kitchen publishes.

The chocolate cookies i made with baker’s unsweetened chocolate squares turned out well and I used this recipe that i found on the Kraft company website. They are called Chocolate Sugar Cookies Recipe, so go check that out also!
