This Red Wine Chocolate Castle Cake is an irresistibly moist chocolate cake spiced with the dark fruit notes of Malbec wine & coated with a lightly sweetened cream cheese frosting, then covered with a sprinkle embellished white chocolate bark for a fun, yet regal appearance.
Chocolate Mint cookie dough is rolled into logs & then frosted with a Creme de Menthe Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting & decorated with red sugar pearls & royal icing – Bûche de Noël doesn’t get any easier or more fuss free than this.
These cinnamon roll cookies are made up of rings of crispy buttery cookie, alternated with a sweet ribbon of cinnamon sugar. They are then rolled in turbinado sugar for an extra crunch of sweetness & topped with zig zags of cream cheese frosting – it’s everything you love about a cinnamon roll but in the form of a crisp, buttery cookie.
Before we chit chat about this cake, I wanted to tell you that my Crunchy Quinoa Granola was recently featured in the Buzzfeed article “23 Insanely Delicious Quinoa Recipes For Literally Every Occassion”. You can find the article HERE. You can also find the original post for this recipe HERE. This has been one of The Road to Honey’s most popular recipes so I hope you find time to give it a try. It’s very versatile and tastes great on yogurt, ice cream and with milk or on it’s own as a healthy snack.

Now that we got that out of the way, you may have noticed that I have been missing in action for the last couple of weeks. Yes. . . life has been hectic with class, a seemingly endless stream of moves, and a calendar full of kitty chemotherapy appointments. But despite all of this, I managed to sneak away for 2 weeks to participate on a penguin research project happening near a remote town in Patagonia.
