Dark Chocolate Mocha (Full) Moon Pies Cookies (FOOD PHOTO SHOOT)

in #photogrpahy4 years ago (edited)

Are you ready for the fun and spooky stuff of late October?


Dark Chocolate Mocha (Full) Moon Pies!..jpg

So about this recipe. As you can see, they are not you’re traditional moon pie. Actually, I’ve probably only had a real moon pie once, ever, and from what I remember it wasn’t really my thing. Trust me, these are different. My brother-in-law has been telling me I should make moon pies for a really long time now and I got this idea many weeks ago when I was brainstorming for October. I thought the whole moon pie idea would be fun to put a darker spin on. Do you get it, full moon? Yeah, like werewolves. So fun, right?

Even more fun is how yum they are! They have this amazing mocha marshmallow fluff filling (that you’ll probably want to drink by itself) sandwiched between two perfectly crunchy chocolate shortbread cookies with a hint of saltiness. Of course, then you dip the whole thing in chocolate and it becomes something dangerously addictive.

I’m not gonna lie, these aren’t the quickest recipe you’ve ever made but, man are they worth it. My whole family is still talking about these and they were unanimously voted to be almost as good as my snickers bars from last weekend. I’d say those are my best dessert creation to date so that’s saying something. You’ve just gotta do it!\

If you’re wanting to something fun and festive then this is it! They’re triple the chocolate and perfect for any party. Seriously, if you make these for your friends they will love you forever and a day. The spookiest thing about them is how fast they disappear. Lightning fast, I’m telling you!

Also, now that November is just around the corner, baking is the perfect cozy activity...

I LOVE the holidays @irime! Thanks!

These look downright dangerous! And not that complicated to be honest.

Well, I say that now, but you can be sure I'll struggle with the more delicate aspects. Sweets are kinda complicated for me!

Nice post, as always. Upvoted and written down for future attempts!

Thanks so much @steemedchitty - you're right, they can be dangerous - LOL

For me, to be honest, is impressive the way you take your pictures, I see always perfect angles, fitting colours and great light... I know it's so hard to take a good shot and I'm working on that daily, and I appreciate when I see a quality photography.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my post @yasirgawad

The thing I love about food is you never stop learning new things! I actually had no idea what a moon pie was, don't think we have those in Australia at all (and now I think I know what the reference was to on Big Bang Theory !!) - these look amazing. Love that your skills can transfer from savoury to sweet and so easily too, nice work as always!

Always so sweet @phamished. Yeah, 'moon pies' are known more in the South of the United States, they're a southern thing. So glad you liked the post, and thanks so much for commenting!
