Life comes at you fast––one moment it’s the first week of September and there’s only a hint of fall in the air, then suddenly your family is calling you about Thanksgiving plans, and you realize fall has almost passed you by! Before snow starts to fall and Christmas carols start playing on the radio, make some cozy fall recipes to help you savor the season.
Tangle Chocolate is all about savoring every sliver of chocolate and making a little go a long way. But occasionally, you may eat a chocolate dessert and think to yourself, “This is good, but is it enough chocolate?” Time for a chocolate bomb, a chocolate shell that goes over other desserts and essentially makes them more of whatever they are. You can take the Instagrammable route and pour hot fudge sauce over the chocolate bomb to watch it melt, or you can make a mousse that goes straight into the chocolate bomb. This is a recipe for a meltable chocolate bomb that is almost as delightful to watch melt as it is to eat, and this is a recipe for chocolate mousse-filled chocolate bombs.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Fall is the one time of the year when no one can tell you not to put pumpkin in everything. Update a year-long favorite by adding pumpkin to chocolate chip cookies! The great thing about baking with pumpkin is that it can act as an egg substitute, which is perfect if you’re vegan (did you know that Tangle Chocolate is vegan?) or just simply out of eggs. Pumpkin is very moist, though, so to maintain a cakey cookie texture you’ll need to blot your pumpkin puree. This is a great recipe for cakey pumpkin chocolate cookies.
Chocolate and Caramel ApplesIf you’re feeling nostalgic for your childhood fall carnival days, recreate some of the magic by making homemade chocolate caramel apples. As we’ve already discussed, sometimes desserts simply aren’t chocolatey enough, and you need to take matters into your own hands. Simply by dunking your caramel apples in a layer of chocolate, you completely elevate your entire experience. The combination of chocolate and caramel is one of the great joys of life, and the slightly sour, slightly sweet flavor of the apple ties it all together. This recipe recommends using dark chocolate, which is a Tangle Chocolate-approved recommendation.
