Recipes Posted by Lexi Zgud:

My mother is crazy about French toast, raspberries and chocolate. She tended her own raspberry bush and would often use the sweet berries in breakfasts and desserts. This easy brunch dish combines the best of both worlds – chocolatey, nutty Chocmeister, fresh berries, crusty bread and a sweet, eggy custard. To finish, I’ve added an optional raspberry-red wine sauce that can be made the night before. Best of all, it’s perfect for lazy weekends. Prep the recipe overnight and then bake in the morning. Sweet and decadent, Chocmeister […]

I am crazy about brownies. They’re chewy, chocolate and oh-so-full-of-love. Loaded with Chocmeister, two types of chocolate and toasted almonds, these Milk Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Brownies are sweet, decadent and satisfying.

These bars were inspired by my mother, Mary, who is crazy about anything with raspberry and chocolate. Growing up in Kearney, Nebraska she had her own raspberry bush and my fondest memories of spring were plucking berries right off the bush. Nothing goes better with raspberries and peanut butter than chocolate, so here I’ve used both Peanut Butter & Co.’s Dark Chocolate Dreams and White Chocolate Wonderful. A little sinful and decadent, these no bake bars are to-die-for.

There’s something incredibly comforting about these easy-to-make, no-bake peanut butter bars. I remember eating these as a child after school with a big glass of milk to wash them down.
