It’s one of the most delicious substances on the face of the earth, and it’s something I haven’t tasted in a long time. It’s chocolate! These are my top 5 ways to enjoy delicious chocolate.
Chocolate Chip Cookie. Who could say no to a freshly baked warm and gooey chocolate chip cookie with a glass of cold milk?
The Top 5…
#5 Chocolate dipped strawberries. I prefer them dark red and slightly chilled with a thick chocolate shell.
#4 Chocolate Cream Pie. This is slightly less “chocolaty” and a bit sweeter than some of the other selections on this list. It’s perfect with a cup of hot coffee.
#3 Chocolate Milk/Milkshake. Since they are both beverages I decided to list them together, but I prefer a thick chocolate milkshake or malt. I haven’t had a chocolate milkshake since before the Summer.
#2 Brownies. One of the best treats ever is a warm homemade brownie with walnuts. You can dip it in milk or put a scoop of ice cream on top for good measure. The smell of brownies baking can fill a house from front to back and is very pleasant. The smell is one of those Christmas smells that takes you back to those days when family would gather to celebrate the holidays.
#1 Hot Fudge Cake (click the link for a picture). I would rate this treat as one of the all time greatest deserts. It’s two pieces of warm chocolate cake with cold vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between. You pour rich and thick hot fudge over it, top it with whipped cream and a cherry. This will explode your pancreas, but it’s probably worth it. It’s also worth trying to find a Shoney’s and driving out of your way to have it. There are numerous copycat recipes online that you can try, and there are restaurants that serve something similar, but the Shoney’s version is the best. For something similar, go to Chili’s and order their Molten Chocolate Cake. It’s a cake that has a runny fudge center with ice cream and a chocolate shell on top.
