Happy Chocolate Day, everyone!
In honor of both Valentine’s Day and Chocolate Day (which just happen to fall a few days apart) we’re not only giving you permission to indulge in the most delectable desserts this week but we’re also going to give you the perfect recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth.
We’ve scoured the popular social site Pinterest.com to find the 3 most delicious-looking dishes. There were a lot (and by a lot, we mean A-LOT!) to choose from but we narrowed it down to these three – enjoy!
A top 3 list just wouldn’t be a top 3 list without cheesecake. For that reason, we chose this creamy chocolate cheesecake from the popular Cheesecake Factory as our number three pick. Want to cut back on some of the calories without compromising the experience? Go light on the whip cream and split your piece with a friend. You’ll still get your cheesecake fix but you won’t be over-indulging.
If you’re looking for the perfect treat to surprise your kids, these mouth-watering chocolate cupcakes will definitely do the trick. Click on the image to view the recipe and you’ll see that there are several alternatives to making this sweet treat a little healthier. If you want to let your kids indulge for one night (after all, it is Chocolate Day!), you can make the recipe as is but if you’re looking for a healthier way to make this delicious dessert simply cut back on the number of chocolate chips, opt for low-fat frosting and skip the sprinkles.
Similar to the cheesecake, a Top 3 list just wouldn’t be a Top 3 list without chocolate cookies. Everyone loves chocolate cookies, which is why this unique recipe for mudslide cookies is the perfect way to celebrate this national holiday. Click the image for the easy-to-make recipe that will make your kids the envy of all their friends at school.
