One of the perks/hazards of working with food bloggers is the research. In order to stay up-to-date on food blog trends, I simply must spend time with food blogs. Scrolling through the gorgeous, glossy photos of chocolate, reading the tempting, scrumptious recipes about chocolate, and learning new ways to make chocolate – er, food blogs – even better.
All that research can leave a developer really, really hungry and with an unhealthy craving for lots and lots of chocolate.
If you’re looking for some yummy Halloween recipes from independent food bloggers who really know their sweet stuff, check out these recipes that I stumbled across during my research.
I defy you to drool over this photograph from Pumpkin ‘n Spice and then not make the White Chocolate Boo Bark! It’s colorful. It’s fun to say. It’s easy to make. And it’s white chocolate stuffed with cookies and candies! Yes, it makes my teeth hurt a little, but I want it anyway. Don’t you?
Dig in with Dana always does a great job of providing readers with dishes that are as customizable as they are delicious, and this Pumpkin Swirl Brownie recipe is no exception. Dana offers a step-by-step photo tutorial as well as suggestions for making the treat gluten-free, vegetarian, and even dairy-free. That kind of thoughtfulness will always be rewarded with reader loyalty.
I love how Dana took the time to arrange and document all of the ingredients at a glance. Not only does it give me a basis of comparison, it inspires me to take a little extra time with preparation when I’m cooking at home.
If this Death By Chocolate Brownie is your undoing, count yourself lucky. I can’t think of a better way to go. Not only is the recipe pure chocolate gold, food blogger Heather at SugarDishMe has a delightful voice that makes reading her blog posts feel like you’re sitting down for coffee (or wine) with a funny friend.
These Mini Ghost Pumpkin Cakes are the cutest, and I love that they’re simple and easy to personalize. Ashlee of the lifestyle blog Ashlee Marie is generous enough to provide step-by-step photos for guidance, and she has a warm, friendly voice that makes reading the post a joy.
You’ve got to wash all those sweet treats down with something. May I recommend this Vampire Ice Cream Float? Why not go full sugar overload, you’re probably almost there anyway?
The recipe is simple, and food blogger Amy Locurto’s daughter Siena and young friend Avery are adorable in their YouTube tutorial that accompanies the recipe. Amy’s done a fantastic job of harnessing the power of video to promote her lifestyle brand Living Locurto.
