Decadent Chocolate Desserts can't remember how long it's been since my mother gave me the magnet stating "CHOCOLATE ~ not just for breakfast anymore."  It was a perfect gift, because I do love all things chocolate

Yes, I love chocolate any time of the day.  My boys love chocolate too.  Their favorite breakfast is pancakes with mini chocolate chips.  I know some people will argue that milk chocolate is best, but I am a dark chocolate lover.  Today I challenge you to try a decadent chocolate dessert and see if you disagree.  And please, just because I say "dessert," don't feel like you can't eat these recipes any time of the day that you desire.

Maybe you're a chocolate and peanut butter lover.  If so, I have an easy {3 ingredient} recipe that's amazing: PeanutButter Whip.  Simply use your blender to whip 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and then blend in 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter.  Scrape into a small bowl and top with crushed dark chocolate.  Soooo good!  Thanks to Rohnda Sue for coming up with this quick treat.  If you have a sweet tooth and want to add a few more ingredients, you can see the full recipe {with Stevia & vanilla} by clicking the title above.

For years now my favorite warm, chocolate dish has been Chocolate Soufflé.  If you go to So Simple Desserts: Chocolate Soufflé, you will find the full recipe for this luscious dessert.  I also write about why you don't have to be intimidated by baking this dessert, including tips for a successful soufflé.

Recently though, our favorite dessert has been FlourlessChocolate Cake.  My husband raved "It's melt in your mouth..." and my oldest son exclaimed "delicious!"  You could say it has been a hit.  When talking with my mother about what dessert I could bring for Thanksgiving, she said I should bring this dessert... and she hasn't even tried it yet.  

In addition to being a decadent chocolate dessert, I love that it's another easy {4 ingredient} recipe.  If you don't believe me about how delicious it is, you can see at left how much was gone a couple hours after I made it.

In case you also are a Trim Healthy Mama, I did make this dessert as a THM S by just substituting Truvia for the sugar.  {And, no, not a single person in my family noticed.}

Thanks to Joan at Chocolate, Chocolate and More for sharing this recipe.  It is originally from Lori Lange's "The Recipe Girl Cookbook."  I'm curious what other recipe ideas I will find at Lori's Recipe Girl website.  Also, I cannot wait to go back to Joan's website and explore more... What other chocolate delights does she have to share?!

I was so impressed with the rich chocolate flavor of this flourless cake, that I didn't even bother making the ganache.  Yes, it's sooo good that I didn't even feel the need to add any more chocolate!  I do think that I will add the ganache when I make this dessert for Thanksgiving.  If you have a sweet tooth and want to add a few more ingredients, you can see the full recipe {with whipping cream & chocolate chips for  ganache} by clicking the title above.
