There’s something about dark, rich chocolate that makes it impossible to resist. Some people even base their travels around chocolate according to this article at Compare The Market. Due to the popularity to my last post on where to find the best ice cream recipes, I thought I’d also let you know where to find the best chocolate dessert recipes. Chocolate, I find it’s necessary for survival. How about you?
The Best Chocolate Dessert Recipes You Need For Your Survival
1. The Deepest, Darkest Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

4. Salted Caramel Chocolate Pots
I love the combination of salted caramel, chocolate and salt, and I love the recipe at Olive Magazine. They are easy to make, and I love their suggestion to top them with crème fraîche just before serving.

One of my favorite food blogs ever is Shutterbean by Tracy Benjamin. All of her recipes are fantastic, and I especially adore her recipe for Earl Grey chocolate cake. I am a fanatic when it comes to Earl Grey tea. I confess, I even like to eat this cake for breakfast.

A triple layer of chocolate layered over a crust of Oreo’s with chocolate curls on top. That’s chocolate times five. I have no problem devouring every bite. This is my kind of chocolate dessert all the way.

It’s un-processed, vegan, gluten and refined sugar-free cake, and I think it’s one of the best chocolate dessert recipes you can make.

9. Another Chocolate Recipe To Soothe Your Guilt-Superfood Chocolate Quinoa Bark
For those of you who like to eat chocolate every day (me!!!), this is one of those chocolate dessert recipes you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. Half Baked Harvest is another one of my favorite food blogs, and the recipe for Superfood Chocolate Quinoa bark is one of my favorites. Don’t miss putting the rose petals on the top for a whole new level of decadence. I also added some cardamom to this recipe which gave it a nice flavor.
