The chocolate fondue is as simple as melting some chocolate. We use our sterno (non-electric) fondue pot for the chocolate. It mimics a double boiler. The chocolate can be done in either. If you don’t have two fondue pots or don’t want to clean the one you use for the main course, simply melt…

Dark Chocolate Holiday Bark – Sea Salt, Toasted Coconut, & Almond
Keeping with the theme of the week, I’m made more holiday food gifts! Today, (another snow day by the way) I made 3 kinds of dark chocolate bark; sea salt, toasted coconut, and almond. All equally delicious, and all will earn you a spot in the food gift hall of fame. Shh! Don’t tell anyone,…
Almond Butter Buckeyes
My clean version of the traditional buckeye candy is delicious. I replace the peanut butter with creamy almond butter, which is divine. To make it even better I dip the almond butter balls in dark chocolate, that has just the hint of coconut. These little balls of almondy, yummy, chocolaty joy are amazing. Trust me…one taste, and you will never go back to the originals!
So I’ve been wanting to try something new and different for a while. The holiday season is the perfect time to do it. Who doesn’t love marshmallows! The holidays have so many uses for marshmallows; sweet potato casserole, hot chocolate, toasting over the fire on a chilly night, decorating a ginger bread house…the list goes…
Clean Eating Pumpkin Pie and Pie Crust
So, the local farm market has so many pumpkins they are basically giving them away. I purchased 10 sugar pie pumpkins, locally grown for $4! Yep, you read that right, $4. They are 2 for $4 at the big chain grocery store. And, these are organic and grown locally. It really doesn’t get any better….
Pumpkin Butter – Easy, Simple Thanksgiving Treat
I’ve been trying to figure out what to bring to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. Jessica and I discussed a couple of options and came to the Pumpkin Butter idea! It worked out perfectly because the local Farm Market had these amazing Heirloom Pumpkins that were grown locally. The seeds originated in Italy many many years ago. I assume they were brought over by an immigrant. They look nothing like pumpkins the but inside is a beautiful, dark orange and made a beautiful Pumpkin Butter.
Coconut Almond Butter Cups
Happy Halloween!!! Here at My Clean Kitchen we are brimming with Halloween spirit. We carved pumpkins, decorated the windows with witches. hung spiderwebs, and even …don’t judge us too much…bought costumes for the pups!
Decadently Dark Chocolate Dipped Apples
So..if you saw Sunday’s post about our little fall outing you will understand why today we are making chocolate dipped apples. In hindsight….we may have gone a little overboard on the apple picking. But who wouldn’t…picking apples is soo much fun, it’s easy to forget that you actually are going to need to figure out something to do with them after! So I apologize in advance if we post a few apple recipes this week. But we have to do something with them I guess! Luckily we all like apples, a lot.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Lately it seems like everyone is doing some sort of pumpkin dessert. (I mean obviously right, it is October). But it seems like this year we are going more pumpkin crazy than usual. One thing that seems to be the latest craze is pumpkin cookies. So I though, why not, join in the fray and try to make my own! These cookies are great. So fluffy! And just the right amount of sweet. Oh…and did I mention they have chocolate!
