Magically Chocolate Desserts

August 9, 2015

Chocolate is a magical ingredient. It can become the main feature in a savory dish, or a much beloved sweet dessert. For me, it's all about dessert. As I have gotten older, I have also become somewhat of a chocolate snob. Once you taste really good chocolate, everything else doesn't hold up. 

Chocolate desserts made with good chocolate always taste better. It's not about the sweetness, but about the richness of the chocolate bean itself. Here are some recipes that use chocolate the right way. 

You can find good chocolate at your local grocery story or health food store, look for something over 70% cocoa and you can't go wrong. If you don't happen to have any stores that carry exceptionally good chocolate, that's what the internet is for. Amazon has just about anything could ask for, and with two day shipping, it's almost instant gratification. 

Once you get your super good chocolate, now it's time to cook with it. Here are some recipes that will highlight the quality of your chocolate and impress your family with the cooking skills you possess. Tasty!
