BFF Open House Link Party #125: Chocoholics Unite Edition

The Answer Is Chocolate

Happy First Friday in October! Our weather here in the PNW is a little confused and it's been more like late November with torrential rain and windstorms. Hopefully, not a sign of things to come. Given that I have a blog with chocolate in the title, I thought I'd focus on chocolate this week so all of this week's features are, you guessed it: CHOCOLATE!  Get your pin finger ready. 

So last week I featured truffles by Karyn from The Dieter's Downfall. They were dangerous enough on their own but not content to make us drool over just the truffles, she went and put them on a cake. ON A CAKE! 

Then, along came these Oreo coconut cheesecake bars from Mary Frances at The Sweet-Tooth Life. Chocolate and coconut oh my and yes please!

True confession time. I don't love pumpkin. There I said it. How College Boy ended up in love with Pumpkin Spice Lattes is beyond me. BUT, these Pumpkin Spice Fudge Brownies from Stephanie at Back for Seconds, may just win me over. 

Fall is the perfect time for oatmeal raisin cookies. But these Oatmeal Raisinett cookies from Life With the Crust Cut Off, bring them to another delicious level.  I have a thing for Raisinetts so there might not be any left for the cookies. 

Finally, you know how your family will want hot cocoa and you may or may not feel like making it from scratch and you may or may not have some packets of mix leftover from last year because it hasn't been hot cocoa season yet this year and you haven't bought any and oh...go make this now to have it on hand! You can thank The Pin Junkie

Still with me or are you in a chocolate sugar induced coma? On to this week's party.
