For the Love of Chocolate

For the Love of Chocolate

I've always liked chocolate, but recently I've fallen in love with this miraculous substance. Is there anything else that so quickly lifts, comforts or excites you? Nothing comes to mind. Since there's that big holiday tomorrow, here are some chocolate recipes that caught my eye. Whether you're sharing them with a sweetie or gorging with your friends, I hope you find a way to enjoy some chocolate this weekend.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Granola | Oh My Veggies | Sinful, but only a little.

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge | Sophisticated Gourmet | Apparently this is quick, easy and doesn't require a candy thermometer. Sold.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies | Pinch of Yum | These + romantic comedy = perfect girls' night

Brigadeiros (Brazilian Chocolate Truffles) | Half Baked Harvest | Did you say "sprinkles"?

Chocolate Truffle Creme Brûlée | Love & Olive Oil | My brain just went, "Hubba hubba hubba!"

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Toffee | Barefeet In The Kitchen | Like a Heath bar, but so much better.

Chocolate Almond Biscotti | Pastry Affair | Give me these and a hot drink and I'll love you forever.

Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie Baklava | Half Baked Harvest | Everyone does regular cookies. Stand out with something crunchy instead.

What are your favorite chocolate recipes?
