There are so many rich luscious chocolate dessert recipes. Can dessert get any better? Chocolate is the favorite flavor around the world. I have also found that the favorite topic of food discussion around the world is the many dessert recipes.
It stands to reason that chocolate dessert recipes are the hottest topic worldwide and I am included. This is the main reason I decided to gather many of my chocolate cakes together and eventually will add my many other chocolate recipes.
I want to mention, as I am sure you already know that there are many different types of chocolate. Each one of these chocolates is equally delicious and equally valuable depending on the recipe which you will include it in. Not only are they broken down into different types of chocolates as I have listed below but you will notice that each type or brand or manufacturer may have a different percentage of actual chocolate in it. It is best to try different ones and find your favorites to cook and bake with.
TYPES OF CHOCOLATE:
Chocolate dessert recipes can be as simple as dipping strawberries in melted chocolate. While I am mentioning melted chocolate and I am talking about dark, milk or white melted chocolate. Spoon some over pecans, walnuts, peanut or cashews; let them set up and the chocolate harden and see how good this is for a simple quick dessert; try also dipping marshmallows, bananas, pretzels, crackers or shortbread cookies.
I am sure I don’t have to tell anyone how great chocolate layer cake recipes are, or all those rich brownies, or creamy fudge, or wonderful chocolate pies and cookies; but what about chocolate soup recipe, chocolate soufflés and chocolate mousse? How about chocolate cheesecake? I am not just talking about plain chocolate cheesecake but some of those with caramel and pecans and all those other ingredients in them. The great think about chocolate dessert recipes is that chocolate blends so well with many other dessert ingredients like coconut, peanut butter, mint, cream cheese, nuts, caramels and many more. Your choices are endless to come up with some fabulous tasting products. Besides loving the taste of these chocolate dessert recipes, just think, there are some health benefits of chocolate; one being it offers a natural detoxification.
