Somehow this is not one of the major food groups: but it certainly should be.
We love chocolate at Southern Living and with so many great recipes it is easy to see why. Chocolate seems perfect for everything. From a sweetener for the perfect mole sauce to a filling for a classic pie, chocolate simply works its magic everywhere. We love chocolate in Mocha Balls. Chocolate Pudding Cake, and Mexican Hot Chocolate Trifle. It also works perfectly in Decadent Chocolate-Espresso Cheesecake, Cherry Chocolate Thumbprints, and Easy Ganache.
So whether you want to spoon it or spread it, slice it, fill it, or bake it, chocolate is a kitchen go-to wonder food. For some sweet and spice you'll want Tex-Mex Brownies. For the deliciously decadent delights, you may prefer Chocolate-Espresso Pound Cake Truffles, or Mississippi Mud S'mores-Fudge Pie. Clearly there are few foods that are as beloved as chocolate: well, clear as Mississippi mud, that is. Some Milk Chocolate-Peppermint Bark should help you see the chocolate forest for the trees, and a few bites of So Good Brownies will prove that chocolate is so . . . divine.
