I don't think I need to convince you to add a bit more chocolate in your life. I'm still in awe chocolate doesn't cost more because in my book it's a form of therapy. Seriously, you can't tell me that some chocolate can't make a bad day at least a little better.
From cookies, to brownies, to truffles, to bark there's sure to be a chocolate recipe (or many) here for you. I'll stop there, let's get to the BEST chocolate lover desserts.

Stick with something with minimal ingredients and no bake. It's difficult to mess up and will be loved by all. I suggest these Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles that require just few steps and the result feels so sophisticated.
If your chocolate is stiff/chunky during the melting process it is likely it has burned or “seized." This is why you need to stir it thoroughly between intervals and do not do more intervals than needed (I find three 30 second intervals is the prime amount of time) if using the microwave. If melting chocolate stove top, stir continuously. If you catch the burning chocolate early enough, you may be able to save it by whisking in a tablespoon of water and mixing gently in an attempt to loosen the seized clumps.
Semi sweet, by definition is darker due to its higher cocoa content and lack of milk. Semi-sweet chocolate is cocoa + sugar (and only sometimes milk). Milk chocolate on the other hand has a higher dairy content making it smoother and creamier.
Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa is my favorite. It's super rich and smooth and the quality is spot on. The cocoa itself doesn't have any sugar, so it highlights the chocolatey flavor. It also has a nice, fluffy texture that doesn't chunk up, which is super ideal for baking and drink recipes alike.
Alright my chocolate people! That's a wrap on my favorite chocolate lover desserts. I know you'll find one (or many) you'll obsess over. Satisfy that sweet tooth and make one today!
