Chocolate desserts don’t get any more decadent than this! It’s easy to make, with only 6 easy-to-find ingredients, and it’s ideal for any season, from the depths of winter to the middle of summer. Whenever any of my friends is struggling for a chocolate dessert idea, I suggest this… it’s my favorite!

I got this crunchy chocolate dessert idea while thumbing from a back issue of Southern Living magazine. It’s easy to make, and only has 107 #calories per serving! I love serving it in winter with frothy coffee drinks or cocoa.

I clipped this recipe from the November 2006 issue of Real Simple magazine, and I was delighted I could find it online to share with you! Instead of the traditional pumpkin pie, I bring this chocolate silk pie to Thanksgiving. It’s always a hit!

I heard this recipe during an interview on NPR, and I actually bought the book, “Cooking for Mr. Latte,” because of it (I loved the book, by the way). It’s my new stand-by cake recipe, and it’s ideal for every occasion, from birthdays to everyday.

While it may sound counter-intuitive, I found this recipe in Cooking Light magazine. It’s one of my favorite chocolate desserts, and if you think the ice cream you buy at the store is yummy, try this… you’ll never BUY ice cream again!

This is my very favorite Christmas-time dessert! Everyone loves brownies, so everyone BRINGS brownies to holiday pot-lucks. Change it up a bit by adding the special festive ingredient — peppermint! Make a match to take, and a batch to leave at home, for yourself!

7. White Chocolate Popcorn Balls

Who says all chocolate dessert ideas have to be milk or dark chocolate? Add something new to your recipe box with white chocolate and popcorn! These popcorn balls are very rich, and are great for parties — you can make them as large or small as you like! The small ones are great for the Super Bowl or for kid’s birthday parties, and the larger ones #look pretty as a quite edible centerpiece.

With so many incredibly decadent, easy-to-prepare chocolate desserts to choose from, there’s no reason to be chocolate dessert-free, ever. There’s a chocolate dessert idea on this list for almost every occasion, and then some. Which of these do you think you’ll try first, or do you have another marvelous chocolate dessert #recipe to share?
