This recipe idea came to me as I was waiting in line at Starbucks and was looking at the cake pops in the glass case. I wonder who first created the cake pop? It’s such a clever idea, but I always found them way too sweet. Cake plus overload on frosting blended into the cake to make the cake pop shape. I was curious if it would work with yogurt. Guess what – it did! (or I wouldn’t have posted this recipe)

I know my typical dessert combo is chocolate and peanut butter (like here, here, and here), but I also love the chocolate raspberry combination. Okay, let’s be real.. chocolate and anything. Hi my name is Julie and I’m a chocoholic.

I want to wish my boyfriend, Adrian, a very Happy 24th Birthday!! We celebrated this weekend. I made us Molten Lava Cake!! I know typically all my recipes are on the healthier side, but there are times to indulge and celebrate with decadent desserts, guilt free. My friend/roommate from college gave me this recipe. She is a trained pastry chef, so I knew this recipe was going to be amazing.
