  1. chocolate banana bread

    Chocolate Banana Bread

    Banana bread is usually something to eat for breakfast but this one is so decadent, you could easily top it with vanilla ice cream and call it dessert. Chocolate chips and cocoa powder give it deep chocolate flavor and sour cream makes it rich, tender and ultra-moist.

  2. double chocolate mint cookies

    If mom's a chocolate and mint person, she’ll love these double chocolate mint cookies. They have the flavor of Thin Mints® but the texture of chunky chocolate chip cookies.

  3. chocolate cupcakes
