If you’ve read my blog for any length of time it’s no secret that 1: my boys love to cook, bake, and be with me in the kitchen and 2: they make an impressive amount of messes. Like the time Bentley crawled up on a stool in the pantry and emptied 3 HUGE bags of cereal all on the floor in the time I helped my toddler go to the bathroom? …Or did I forget to tell that story here?…

There are dozens of similar stories (here, here, and here to start) and I’m so excited to be partnering with Palmolive® today to talk a little bit about combating those endless messes (aka great memories or so I’m told) my kids create.

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to watch Freddie Prinze Jr. share his tips for cooking & cleaning in the kitchen with the kiddos. He explained that “Messipes” are like a conjunction of “Messy”and “Recipes” so those particular recipes that tend to make a pretty big mess.

So in creating my own Messipe (Messy Recipe) today, I thought what do my kids tend to get messiest with? Hands down: chocolate. How that chocolate can never seem to make it in their mouths but covers their hands, faces, and table I’ll never understand.

We seriously had the best time making this chocolate tart together and an even better time eating way too much of it. I’m going to warn you right now; not only is it messy it is ADDICTING! Three layers of pure fudgy + chocolatey goodness and you’ll be amazed at how simple it is to make. The hard part is just waiting for it to cool!

  • 1 and 1/4 cups (295g) heavy cream
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups (338g) semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (whatever your preference is)
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  1. This last so yummy!
    My favorite Messipe is not one I actually make…I love watching my husband and 3yr old son make pancakes every Saturday morning! 🙂

  2. My favorite messipe is canning salsa! Not only are you making homemade salsa, but the canning aspect makes the kitchen crazy- I was up to my elbows in tomatoes!
