CONTEST: Your Fave Gourmet Chocolate Dessert?

By Cal Orey, The Writing Gourmet

"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."
- Charles M. Schulz

I woke up this sunny morning to read a dark anti-chocolate blog post. Imagine that! I sense the bold blogger did it to draw big attention. It did. So, I'm swinging the other way. As a converted "serious" chocolate lover (and one who now knows the healing benefits of chocolate which are shared in my new book The Healing Powers of Chocolate), I'm offering a free book (mass market edition of The Healing Powers of Olive Oil or The Healing Powers of Vinegar published by Kensington) as a gift to the person who does love chocolate...
Simply share the title of your most delicious and creative gourmet chocolate dessert--a favorite for the upcoming holiday season. Mousse, muffins to truffles and cheesecake. Whatever chocolate delight grabs you--and me--will do it. And I will share the chocolate-loving winner's pick complete with a yummy recipe I find and use and/or where to find it at gourmet stores.

Deadline Date: November 11. Good luck! (I dedicate this book giveaway to the late Charles Schulz whom I had the awesome pleasure of interviewing on more than one occasion.)


  1. Hmmm Fried Chocolate Truffles or Chocolate Bread Pudding. I just found these and they are fast becoming favorites in my house. I can not believe anyone would write an Anti-Chocolate post, crazy!!

  2. Chocolate Bread Pudding, ah that does good. Warm, comforting, and I bet I can find a super healthy grown up recipe for people of all ages.

  3. Kwarezimal; it's a typical Maltese Lenten sweet made with chocolate and almonds and drizled with honey and crushed hazelnuts when still hot.

  4. Just looked it up, the Kwarezimal. Looks easy and different. Thx! Total hazelnut fan.

  5. Cal, thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm all about chocolate and very interested in Mediterranean food- so excited to have found your blog!
