What could be better than cherries or strawberries? How about chocolate added on top?! Yes please!

Chocolate Raspberry Jam Canning Recipe

Other fruit besides strawberry and cherries works just as good with chocolate. Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries… you get the idea. Just about anything works with chocolate. Dealer’s choice!

Homemade Nut Butters and Fudge Sauce Recipes

Our custom Rubber Stamp canning labels are a perfect match for nut butters.

Nut Butters and Fudge Sauce Recipes

Not that plain old peanut butter is boring, but it’s exciting to try other nut butters. Also super exciting: Adding chocolate to those new nut butters! Plus, it’s healthier to make your own nut butters by avoiding the store bought varieties that are loaded with added sugar, oils, and high fructose corn syrup.

Since chocolate sauce recipes are low acid and not safe for canning by today’s recommendations, here are a few recipes to freeze or store in the refrigerator.

Valentine’s Day Hot Chocolate with FREE Printables

So what’s better than buying flowers, candy, or cards for Valentines’ Day? How about something chocolaty? Winner winner chocolate dinner! This Love Potion hot chocolate is super easy to make. These cute jars contain 3 basic ingredients: powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. I use dark cocoa powder which tastes extra chocolaty. Use our FREE Printable Hang Tags & Labels to decorate your jar and impress your sweetheart. And don’t limit yourself to making this Love Potion only in February… spread the love year round!

This ambitious baked cake is in the shape of a Ball mason jar. It’s filled with a Ball chocolate raspberry jam recipe too!


chocolate mousse with raspberries recipe

Hey, chocolate desserts in jars can be healthy too! Or at least healthier than some desserts ;) Try making an avocado based mousse or pudding. Yeah, you heard me, whip that weird green thing into chocolate mousse. I was hesitant to try avocado mousse initially, but it’s worth trying for sure. You really can’t taste the avocado, it’s there to add a creamy texture and healthy fats to your dish. Sometimes I use a chocolate protein powder instead of cocoa powder too. 


Chocolate Overnight Oats and Granola Recipes

Chocolate for breakfast? Sure, that’s a thing. Add it to granola or overnight oats for a wonderful morning meal.
