(Recipe from our friends at Haystack Mountain Goat Dairy, Longmont, CO)

Open two 4-ounce packages of Haystack Mountain Plain Goat Chevre and place the cheese in a small bowl. Add 6 ounces (half a jar) of Izzybelle Chilli Cinnamon sauce and a heaping teaspoon of honey. Stir until you have a smooth, even mixture. Roll into a ball, then roll the ball in toasted almond slices. Serve on your favorite cracker with your favorite wine! Experiment with different proportions of cheese and chocolate 'till it's perfect for you.

(with thanks to Tish Boyle for her inspiration)

1-½ cups all purpose flour
¼ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened Scharffen Berger or Guittard are great)
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 stick of soft unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 medium mashed very ripe bananas (about 1 1/3 cups)
1 tsp Mexican vanilla extract
½ cup Izzybelle Original chocolate sauce
about 4 oz. coarsely chopped Chocolove 70% bittersweet chocolate

Spray a loaf pan with Pam.

Set your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Sift them and put them into a small bowl.

Cream the butter and add the sugar and beat until light. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add the bananas and the vanilla.

Microwave the chocolate sauce so it is pourable but not hot. Add the flour in thirds, alternating twice with half of the chocolate sauce. Stir in the coarsely chopped chocolate. Do not overbeat.

Pour the mixture into the loaf pan. Bake for about an hour. Test for doneness with a knife or toothpick in the center of the cake.

Let the cake cool for at least 15 minutes on a rack before taking it out of the pan.

Alternate suggestions: In place of the Original chocolate sauce, try baking this cake using Izzybelle Raspberry chocolate sauce, or for a special and unexpected treat, use Izzybelle Chilli Cinnamon sauce.

11/2 cups chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate filled sandwich cookies
1/4 cup plus 2-3 tablespoons melted butter
1 pint vanilla ice cream and a small bag of Hammonds' peppermint candies,
or 1 pint of the best peppermint ice cream you can buy
one jar of Izzybelle Original Chocolate Sauce

Crush the chocolate wafer cookies or the chocolate filled sandwich cookies—enough to fill your favorite pie dish. Melt the butter, combine it with the crushed cookies and press firmly into the pie dish.

If using vanilla ice cream, pull it from the freezer to soften a bit while you crush Hammonds' peppermint candies to taste. Combine the peppermint and ice cream and press them over the top of the cookie crumbs. Easier still, if using peppermint ice cream, soften it and fill the pie dish. Spread room temperature or slightly warmed Izzybelle Original chocolate sauce over the top of the ice cream.

Wrap the pie with foil or plastic wrap to protect it. Put it into the freezer until you are ready to eat. Pull it out to warm up for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with a few peppermint candies. Add a bit of whipped cream if you must. Enjoy!

(A St. Pattie's Day delight)

Purchase a container of the best chocolate ice cream you can buy. Warm it until it is stir-able. Add a small amount of cold coffee (under 1/4 cup for a pint of ice cream) and about 1/4 cup of Irish whiskey or bourbon. Stir. Let cool in the freezer again. Dish up and add some warmed Izzybelle Chocolate Sauce over the top. Toss a sprig or two of fresh mint on the top if you can get it. Tasty little treat you'll have, and that's no blarney!
