Does your family enjoy chocolate? In our family, two of us have unconditional love for chocolate and seek it out, in its many forms on a regular basis. Of the remaining two family members, excluding our dog of course, one will only eat chocolate as a chip, in a freshly baked cookie and preferably with a glass of cold milk. The last family member does not seek out chocolate, but will gladly partake if it’s offered and will choose Milk Duds at the movie theater.
Can you guess which camp I am in? I am definitely one of the chocolate lovers. At holiday time, be it Easter, Christmas or the upcoming Valentine’s Day, I always visit Priscilla’s Candy Shop to stock up on milk and dark chocolate bunnies, eggs, Santa’s, bells, balls and hearts to share with family, friends and of course me! My birthday cake of choice is chocolate with creamy chocolate frosting and when I make brownies, it’s either Ina Garten’s outrageous brownie recipe, or a recipe I found online called OMG brownies which I will share in a future post.
If you fall into the camp of chocolate lover, or have someone special in your life who does, then you really need to make this recipe for Glazed Chocolate Cake! It is quite heavenly and really very easy to put together, especially if you make it in a springform pan, rather than a traditional pan as the recipe suggests. A smooth and creamy mixture of chocolate and heavy cream is poured over the cake so no special frosting skills are required. The finished cake is dense, full of chocolate flavor and is sure to win over you or your special someone. Happy Valentine’s Day!
