Alright folks, Valentines Day is just around the corner (literally…do you realize that it’s NEXT Tuesday!), so I figured it was time to introduce everyone to my ultimate triple chocolate cookies. What makes a triple chocolate cookie you may wonder? Well, there’s cocoa powder, standard…some chocolate chips, check…but then, oh yes, then, there is also a literal bowl full of melted chocolate. They’ve got a nice crisp crust, hiding a chewy, almost brownie like center, and studded with chocolate chips. Ultimate, I tell you, ultimate. I made these last week so that Bo could take them to work, but apparently they never made it out of his car (greedy little bugger).

Alright folks, it’s time to start thinking Christmas baking. Most of my baking I’ve got down pat from the past few years of trial and error, but it just wouldn’t be the holidays without trying to find a few new things. Also, what would be better to pass out to family on Christmas Eve then some loafs of bread to enjoy with breakfast the next morning.

Alright, let’s get down to the nitty gritty.
This is one bloody fantastic cheesecake. Like, really, really great, though it’s definitely a holiday thing. I don’t see myself waking up on a July morning craving a slice of pumpkin cheesecake (ok honestly, now that I’ve said that, I kinda can see it happening). With our Canadian Thanksgiving over, and the US one and Christmas coming up, I hope that at least a few of you will give it a shot.
I paired it with my spiced nuts as a garnish. Do it.

These are a favorite of mine, especially around the holidays. I made them this past weekend for our Canadian Thanksgiving, and I’ll be making them again in a couple of months for Christmas. You can use pretty much any kind of nut, but if I were you I’d stick to the traditional ones: pecans and almonds.
I started hunting for nuts like this after too many family vacations to Florida, more specifically Universal Studios. Those little carts inside the park, with the delicious spiced nuts sold in the polka dot paper cones. I may drive the 21 hours just for those nuts.
