Pass the Cocoa Turns One! A look at some favorite recipes.

Wow, we can't believe we're celebrating our one-year anniversary! A huge thank you to all of our readers who have followed our baking adventures; you really are the reason we write this blog. This has been a huge learning experience, and will definitely continue to be so! We've had an amazing time writing this blog, and today thought we'd share some of our favorite recipes of the past year.

First, our Cookie Crumble Cheesecake Bars. Chocolate chip cookie meets creamy cheesecake, and the result is an amazing flavor and texture combination.

Our Peanut Butter 

Brownie Pie

, invented by your very own Pass the Cocoa chefs. Gooey, rich brownie with peanut butter swirls in an Oreo Crust, decorated with cream and sprinkles. Bliss.

A creamy, dreamy, four-layer

Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake

Dirt Pudding Cupcakes

. So cute!

. Airy puffs filled with a sweet whipped cream, these are sure to be a show-stopping dessert that is actually pretty easy to make!

Our Homemade Nutella. It is rich, creamy, sweet, and you can swap in different nuts and types of chocolate to your taste. And best of all, you can make it in 15 minutes flat!

Thank you for stopping by! We can't wait to share with you everything we have in store for our second year at Pass the Cocoa!
