Rating: 5 stars 34
My Dad made this recipe up one evening to surprise my Mom. They are huge fans of dark chocolate. Add any extra little add-ins that you want! (e.g. coffee grounds, mint extract, cinnamon, white chocolate coating, etc.) Deliciously dark and fudgy! Enjoy with family on holidays, or just any time you have a major dark chocolate craving! Rolling in coating of choice before refrigerating, if desired.

Grandma's Fudge Pie

Rating: 5 stars 1
Grandma's decadent fudge pie will appeal to chocolate lovers everywhere.

Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Brownies

Rating: 5 stars 1
These intensely rich brownie bars are not for the faint of appetite. Each brownie bears a fruity layer of raspberry jam and fresh raspberries that's covered with a truffle-like blanket of chocolate ganache over top. In other words, they're decadence incarnate. If raspberries aren't your favorite, you can always substitute strawberry jam and fresh strawberries--but you'll want to slice them in half rather than leaving them whole. If desired, garnish with a drizzle of melted white chocolate.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 1556
So easy! They're sweet, salty, and chocolaty, with lots of great crunch.
