These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are moist and fluffy with perfect crackly tops. Made in only one bowl, these are the best homemade chocolate muffins!

Get ready for the best chocolate muffins recipe! Just so you know, I do not use the word “best” lightly. When I say something is the “best”, I truly believe it. These Double Chocolate Banana Muffins are perfect.

Specifically, texture is out of this world! The exterior of the muffins is crackly while the interior is perfectly moist. These are not dry or gummy. Plus, the chocolate flavor really shines. You won’t find muted chocolate flavor in these muffins! In fact, it has two kinds of chocolate.

Full credit for this recipe goes to Tracy at Baking Mischief. She really knows her stuff! Recently, I have been scouring her site and drooling over all her yummy recipes. Most of her recipes are small-batch recipes for one or two people which I love!

I adapted Tracy’s muffin recipe by doubling the ingredients to make 12 muffins instead of 5. I also modified the ingredients slightly. If you want to make my recipe as is, you can. Or you can still cut it in half to make a smaller batch of muffins.

Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings on White Plate

To make easy Apple Dumplings roll apples in buttery crescent rolls, smother, and bake in a sauce made from butter, sugar, cinnamon and citrus-flavored soda.

Using store-bought crescent dough might be my new favorite way to make quick and easy desserts! It’s probably why they sell out quickly at my grocery store around this time of year. So many other smart people have the same idea! Even though I’m late to the party, it’s truly a game changer.

Last year, I discovered a recipe using crescent roll dough to make apple dumplings. Let’s just say, I made crescent roll apple dumplings 3 TIMES during the last holiday season. That’s seems like a lot when there are so many desserts I want to try. Even better, my family and friends loved these apple dumplings too! After I took the blog photos, my brother was all too happy to take these home with him.

Preparation is so simple, and once they bake, the tops are crusty, the bottoms are gooey, and inside, the apples are the perfect texture. To make them even better serve them with ice cream or whipped cream topping. It’s like eating your own personal apple pie.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings Gooey Interior

Stuff and bake crescent rolls with pumpkin, spices, sugar, butter, and cream cheese for the easiest and most delicious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings!

When I first heard of making dumplings with prepared crescent dough, it sounded disgusting. Soggy and flavorless dumplings? No, thank you! Thankfully, that’s not how these turn out at all.

Instead, something magical happens in the oven. As the crescent rolls bake, the outsides caramelize to create a crispy exterior. In addition, the delicious filling becomes creamy and gooey. It’s the perfect contrast!

Specifically, these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings are great for breakfast or dessert! For easy entertaining, try making them in advance. Your friends and family will never guess how quick preparation is. It will be our little secret! You can just rake in all the compliments and watch the dumplings disappear.

Dinner In a Pumpkin Baked (Pumpkin Casserole)

Dinner in a Pumpkin is a casserole cooked right inside a pumpkin! As you serve it, scrape out the tender pumpkin to eat along with the delicious filling!

I get SO excited for Halloween! One of the things I always look forward to is Dinner in a Pumpkin, or pumpkin casserole. Since this dish is seasonal, it’s always really special when I get to eat it. So, I make it as often as I can while pumpkins are still available.

To make dinner in a pumpkin, prepare the casserole filling ingredients. Then, stuff the pumpkin, and bake. As you serve the casserole, also scoop out portions of the pumpkin to eat! After dinner, just throw the pumpkin away! Since there are no casserole dishes, clean-up is so easy.

Speaking of which, why are pumpkins not available AFTER Halloween?! You can find so many other seasonal types of squash. Why not pumpkin? Maybe, if more people make this dish, we don’t have to waste all the after-Halloween pumpkins with a pumpkin smash. #savethepumpkins
