Chocolate. If you love it, we understand your struggle. We also understand how therapeutic it can be to eat chocolate after a ridiculous day. Now if you have a culinary bent of some sort, AND you love chocolate, this is the list for you. Without further ado, here are 10 chocolate recipes to help you de-stress.
First, a classic: the chocolate chip cookie. The secret to why this recipe is so good? It’s the brown sugar. Trust me. Plus, this makes so many cookies that you’ll have chocolatey snacks for days.
Or if you prefer a little peanut butter in your cookies, try this four-ingredient recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. If baking isn’t your strong suit, or if you need something chocolatey ASAP, this is the recipe to try.
Another cookie, but this one has pumpkin in it. If you’re full-swing into fall, this is the cookie for you to try. There are a few more ingredients in this one than the last one, but when you consider the pumpkin, it’s totally worth it.
If you want a little bit of a challenge, try this recipe for homemade chocolate-hazelnut spread. It takes only four ingredients, but the directions involve a touch more effort than some of the other recipes. Challenge yourself, amaze yourself, and enjoy!
