I’m back with more….you guessed it CHOCOLATE! Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate (that’s me, doing a chocolate happy dance). If you’re a frequent visitor here at The Flour Handprint, you know I LOVE all things chocolate.

I’ve even published a comprehensive guide called Types of Chocolate: A Guide to Cooking with Chocolate so my fellow from scratch cooks can tackle their cocoa inspired baking projects with confidence.

But my ever growing chocolate dessert collection on the blog just wasn’t enough, so I set out to compile a list of the best chocolate desserts – all things gooey, fudgy, creamy and crunchy!

Below you’ll find chocolate dessert recipes to suit every mood, all made from scratch, and from talented bloggers and recipe developers I respect. Cakes, cookies, candies, brownies and soooo much more. I hope you find that perfect treat to satisfy that craving!
