happy national chocolate day!

I’m starting this post at 11:56 pm, so by my watch there’s still four minutes left to this glorious holiday! However, in my world, every day is chocolate day, and who says it can’t go on for more than 24 hours?! While I don’t have a new post to share (I really should make calendar appointments for all these important food holidays..) I am prepared to remind everyone about some really truly incredible desserts featuring -in my opinion- the very best food in the world. As as I look for good recipes to remind you of, I’m realizing that pretty much everything I bake involves chocolate. So I’m sticking with the REALLY good ones for this post. The ones that are at least 83% chocolatey, and 100% decadent. And speaking of chocolate, will someone please make me this for my birthday next week? Anyway, happy holiday!


No-Added-Sugar Brownies are light and fluffy and any excuse to eat an entire tray of brownies without ending up crying in fetal position is the dream

You haven’t had vegan dessert until you’ve had a slice of No-Bake Chocolate Cherry Tart

Ditto this Avocado Chocolate Pudding. It was actually so rich and chocolatey I had to approach it several times throughout the day to finish my cup..

It looks so simple, but I can assure you David Lebowitz knows his stuff when it comes to Chocolate Almond Cake

And speaking of cake, Emily reminded us we don’t have to pick dessert or drinks, because Chocolate Stout Cake exists. You’re welcome, earth

Cake may be the prettiest in pictures, but you will never go wrong with several batches of Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. They also fit in purses much more easily than any other dessert on this list.

Saltine Toffee. Another purse snack- and this one has that great salty + chocolate thing happening. Science, guys.

One more time for the cheap seats in the back: Chocolate Coconut Pound Cake

And just in case you’re looking for a liquified version: ABC Smoothie and Almond Hot Chocolate should do the trick! 

Hungry yet? I urge you to follow my lead and keep emergency chocolate chips on your bedside table. Happy baking! (Ps- if this post isn’t enough for you, try this instead!)
