Ghirardelli Hot Fudge Blondie Sundae

by Nicole on November 15, 2010

Ghiradelli Hot Fudge Blondie Sundae

This is a sponsored review by BlogHer and Ghirardelli.

I grew up a few hours from San Francisco, one of my favorite cities and home to Ghirardelli Chocolate. When I was a kid, trips to San Francisco meant baseball games, sourdough bread, and good chocolate.  That was before Ghirardelli was widely available on grocery store shelves, so the chocolate was a special treat!

Maybe it’s because I still associate it with special occasions, but I don’t often buy Ghirardelli even though it is now widely available in stores.  I have used it in recipes that require premium chocolate, but I don’t often splurge on Ghirardelli when making something basic like a chocolate chip cookie.  So when BlogHer approached me to test some samples of Ghirardelli chocolate in a couple of recipes and write about it, I thought it was an excellent chance to try it out in some recipes where I might, out of habit, use a lesser quality chocolate.

The first recipe I tried was a Ghirardelli recipe for Classic Blondies.  Blondies are something I’ve never made before, so I thought it would be fun to try something new while testing out the chocolate.  The blondie batter is made with Ghirardelli Premium White Chocolate and then chocolate chips are folded in before baking.  I decided to use the Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Chips instead of semisweet because I thought it might help cut the sweetness of the blondies themselves.

Ingredients for Ghiradelli Classic Blondies

The recipe worked perfectly and a shiny golden block of Blondies emerged from my oven.

Ghiradelli Classic Blondies

After they cooled for a bit, I cut them into squares.  The blondies were rich, moist, and chewy with dark chocolate oozing from all sides.  Just as I figured, the bittersweet chocolate was perfect in the almost too-sweet blondies.

Sliced Blondies

If you’d like to try making them yourself, here is the recipe for Classic Blondies.

The second recipe I tried was my favorite Hot Fudge Sauce.  I found this on Epicurious a couple of years ago and it originally appeared in Gourmet magazine.  The main change I made to the recipe was to use Ghirardelli Natural Unsweetened Cocoa instead of dutch process cocoa.  I also use light brown sugar instead of dark brown sugar because that’s what I usually have on hand.

Homemade Ghiradelli Hot Fudge

This hot fudge sauce is simple to make and is far more delicious than any store-bought ice cream topping I’ve ever tried.  It can also be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator.  I like to divide the fudge sauce into a couple of glass jars – I keep one in the fridge, and share one with a friend.

Hot Fudge Sauce
(adapted from Epicurious)

2/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup Ghirardelli Natural Unsweetened Cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 oz Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Bring cream, corn syrup, sugar, cocoa, salt, and half of the chocolate pieces to a boil in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat.  Stir until chocolate is melted. Reduce heat and cook at a low boil, stirring occasionally,  for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat then add butter, vanilla, and remaining chocolate and stir until smooth. Cool sauce to warm before serving.

Store leftover fudge sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week.  Reheat before serving.

Yield: about 2 cups.

Ghiradelli Hot Fudge Blondie Sundae with Chopped Pecans

I decided to combine the blondies and hot fudge to create a completely decadent Ghirardelli Hot Fudge Blondie Sundae.  Yes, it was as amazing as it looks!

My favorite dessert this time of year is my homemade Sweet Potato Pie. It is the recipe handed down from my great great grandmother. I make it several times this time of year as it always brings back so many memories of being in the kitchen with my grandmother and mother. I loved to help them peel the potatoes and I loved how light and perfect she made her pie crusts. I still am not quite as good with the pie crusts but the filling comes out so good.

75 Laurie December 14, 2010 at 9:22 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is home made candy. (no recipe) I came up with this concoction a couple of years ago when I was laid off over the holidays. I wanted to make gifts and I had VERY little to spend.
I toasted some pecan pieces in my cast iron skillet – dry – and then at the end poured maple syrup mixed with a pinch of salt and a pinch of cinnamon and half a pinch of cayenne and let it sizzle until all that was left was what was glazing the pecans. Then I melted some dark chocolate chips in the double boiler, added the candied pecan pieces, some cut up marshmallows and some cut up dried cranberries. I put lumps of the chocolate mixture on parchment and cooled it in the fridge. Then I put each lump in a little paper muffin cup and made boxes of 4. They were delicious! Now, that’s my favorite chocolate dessert!

Double chocolate cake is my favorite. Your story of growing up around San Fran made me think of my time there. My parents were divorced and Dad moved to San Jose. When I would visit in the summer he would take me into San Francisco. I’ll never forget those wonderful times. Once, we actually saw John Lennon and Yoko Ono in Ghirardelli Square,

My new holiday tradition is homemade sea salt caramels covered in chocolate – and Ghirardelli is the only brand I use for these – the darker the better. they make great gifts too.

139 Heathercicle December 12, 2010 at 3:33 am

My favorite homemade chocolate dessert is chocolate coated candy canes! They are easy and fun with friends and kids around!

140 Deanna December 12, 2010 at 2:39 am

I love to treat my family to chocolate deserts (#1 love in our home is good ol’ chocolate chip cookies!)when I see they are in need of a little extra TLC! Ghirardelli chocolate chunks make the BEST cookies!! When my husband returns each time from Iraq I usually have a container full waiting for him. :) No better way to say Welcome Home!

160 emily December 10, 2010 at 5:15 pm

168 Tegan December 10, 2010 at 3:52 am

I have this chocolate cake recipe (the first published in the US!) written by an Eliza Leslie, that is amazing. It involves grating 4 oz. of chocolate, and most of a nutmeg, but even people who dislike chocolate cake love it. It’s so decadent, that a sprinkle of powdered sugar is all the topping it needs!

169 Barb December 10, 2010 at 3:10 am

It would have to be a chocolate sundae with my homemade chocolate sauce composed of butter, sugar, whipping cream and cocoa. Yum-o!

170 Krista (kristastes) December 10, 2010 at 2:40 am

174 Susan December 10, 2010 at 2:06 am

My favorite homemade dessert is Paula Deen’s Chocolate Brownie Pudding.

175 Leslie December 10, 2010 at 1:48 am

My favorite chocolate treat is a homemade flourless chocolate cake. I have no problem with flour, but the flourless cake is soooo rich and dense…heavenly!

176 Natalie December 10, 2010 at 1:44 am

That looks amazing! One of my favorite chocolate desserts is, without a doubt, Nigella Lawson’s Dense Chocolate Loaf Cake, which I just blogged about. It’s so dense, moist, and fudgy — all in one bowl!

177 Sallie December 10, 2010 at 1:36 am

Whiskey truffle balls are the best! I can’t wait for Christmas every year when my sister makes them!

187 brookstar December 9, 2010 at 8:25 pm

sometimes, just a square of really good chocolate is enough. easy!

188 Deirdre Reid December 9, 2010 at 8:25 pm

I made a Chocolate Pecan Pie recently that was pretty scrumptious. However, I found a recipe for Chocolate Idiot Cake on David Leibowitz’s blog that I must make – http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2007/01/shf-27-chocolat-1/. He writes, “This cake is extremely rich, and tastes like the most delicious, silkiest, most supremely-chocolate ganache you’ve ever had.” Do you see what I mean? That’s definitely on the “make next” list.

189 laura December 9, 2010 at 8:21 pm

I love nothing more than a good old hot fudge sunday minus the nuts. with a homade chocolate chocolate chip cookie . I love to make it into my own little version of an ice cream sandwich. so yummy!!!!

190 Shawn December 9, 2010 at 8:18 pm

I was in the San Francisco airport once but didn’t have time to leave and explore the city but I felt the call of chocolate. I almost always use Ghiradelli chocolate in my recipes. I just love it. Definitely need to try this recipe it looks yummy!

My favorite chocolate dessert would have to be a toss up between brownies and oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies.

195 Lisa T December 8, 2010 at 8:28 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is a flourless chocolate cake, called chocolate decadance, that I make on very special occasions. So rich and sooooo good!

Can’t wait to make those blondies and my own sundae!

226 Courtney December 4, 2010 at 10:44 pm

So many to chose from but I would have to go with an old fashioned brownie. It is just chocolate perfection.

Chocolate cheesecake!

229 Meaghan December 4, 2010 at 4:45 am

So many things! I think my favourite chocolate dessert would have to be pistachio world peace cookies – the traditional world peace cookie but with lindt “touch of sea salt” chocolate in place of the chocolate chips, and with pistachio nuts added. The salted chocolate, pistachios and intensely chocolatey taste of the biscuits makes them just amazing!

230 Alicia December 4, 2010 at 3:50 am
231 Alicia December 4, 2010 at 3:47 am

233 Lynne December 3, 2010 at 12:41 pm

My favorite brownie recipe is chocolate cake brownie with either walnuts or pecans. I also either add chocolate chips to the batter or ice them with a fudgy frosting. They’re a huge hit and don’t last long.

234 Kathie Mudge December 3, 2010 at 6:46 am

I love to make homemade soft ginger cookies and make a pumpkin spice pie type filling and put between two of them to make an extra large sandwich cookie.

235 Alicia December 3, 2010 at 6:25 am

236 Kelli December 3, 2010 at 3:45 am

Looks amazing! A lot like our favorite dessert around here; a pizzookie, which is a chocolate chip cookie baked in a cast iron skillet and topped immediately with vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and chocolate sauce!

237 Mini December 3, 2010 at 2:50 am

Molten chocolate lava cake.

Love love love San Francisco…and take it from a blondie…that looks awesome!!!

239 Vanessa Marie DeLappe December 3, 2010 at 12:40 am

I am forever a loyal baker of Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies. Though the name speaks for itself (and since I should be studying for finals:) I’ll elaborate. These cookies are ridiculously decadent because they are so simple. No flour (this means gooey wonder) whips egg whites, powered sugar, powdered chocolate(!), melted chocolate(!!), chocolate chips (!!!), and a little corn starch and salt for good measure. Dollops of batter are rolled in more powdered sugar and then baked until the edges crisp and the middle is molten. Divine!

240 Grace December 2, 2010 at 11:18 pm

I’ve never been a fan of blondies, but putting bittersweet chocolate in them sounds excellent! My favorite chocolate dessert to make is a basic chocolate tart with shortbread crust. I mix cinnamon in when making the tart filling, which gives it a little zing.

241 TraceyCK December 2, 2010 at 10:11 pm

I love making brownies wiht different twists – instant espresso to one, white chocolate chips to another, and caramel and roasted walnuts to yet another batch. It’s chocolate, so it’s always good!

305 Tyler L November 25, 2010 at 12:16 am

Every Christmas, my mom makes snickers pie – the most decadent, rich, only-to-be-eaten-once-a-year pie you will ever eat in your life. It has a layer of homemade chocolate fudge, topped with slices of snickers bars and then covered with a layer of cheesecake and drizzled with dark chocolate. Absolutely delicious.

315 Andee November 23, 2010 at 5:03 pm

My favorite chocolate desert is a semi fudge like chocolate brownie with an extra dose of vanilla and then topped with vanilla ice cream.

316 Debbie November 23, 2010 at 4:16 pm

My daughter just made a 6 layer chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting for my husbands birthday… I have to say it is my favorite of all chocolate desserts I have ever had.. so good… I think she used some really good dutch cocoa I have, it had such a wonderful flavor..

317 Lynn B November 23, 2010 at 11:59 am

Chocolate cheesecake!

318 CathyH November 23, 2010 at 7:32 am

Can I come over and have some of your sundae!? :) One of my favorite chocolate deserts is truffles!!

319 Tonya November 23, 2010 at 6:17 am

I like to make Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies, which is a brownie like batter filled with mini chocolate chips, rolled into balls, then a maraschino cherry is pushed into the middle and finally it is drizzled with a chocolate frosting that is baked on. They are amazing!

I just love a great hot fudge sundae!
My most recent favorite chocolate experience is baking a true Black Forest Cake from scratch. The chocolate ganache was paired beautifully and deliciously with homemade brandied cherries by my boyfriend. Happy to say one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve made.

324 Laura Roth November 22, 2010 at 8:25 pm

I am actually not a huge chocolate eater…but my husband and 2 yr old son are! I have currently been trying to use up all the pumpkin puree I made this year…so pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips or butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips have been populating our cookies jar this month.

325 Jill November 22, 2010 at 12:37 pm

Maybe it’s a little pedestrian, but my favorite chocolate dessert will always be brownies! Preferably chewy ones, maybe with some peanut butter or cream cheese baked in.

337 Randa Burden November 21, 2010 at 2:51 am

359 Jamie Tschida November 19, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Thanks for another great recipe entry! I first visited your site while looking for a potato-leek soup, and I’ve been a fan ever since. Both the blondies and the hot fudge sauce look amazing! I have to say, I have many chocolate dessert favorites, but if I have to choose one, I’ll say hot fudge is my favorite homemade chocolate dessert. So good!

I always use Ghirardelli’s bars to make my ganache. Half milk chocolate and half bitter sweet (so technically semi sweet!) And it is so good. Not really a dessert in and of itself, but it makes EVERYTHING better. Cupcakes, brownies, ice cream. So it makes my favorite dessert!

401 Adrienne Gordon November 18, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Mine is brownies w/peanut butte fudge on top.

402 Shannon F. November 18, 2010 at 12:06 pm

Oh my GOODNESS that looks so delish! My Nanny has a hot fudge sauce recipe that is so yummy and foolproof: cocoa, butter, corn syrup – and somehow it comes out to perfection.

414 Vanessa Glasby November 18, 2010 at 12:23 am

My favourite chocolate dessert recipe of all time would have to be my mother’s chocolate pudding cake. It is so amazing! It is a very soupy, thin batter, that ends up dividing into a fluffy cake layer on top and a creamy pudding layer on the bottom. She likes hers warm, but I prefer mine after it has sat in the fridge overnight. The pudding gets uber-thick and super tasty! YUM!

415 Margaret Smith November 18, 2010 at 12:08 am

421 Andy Johnson November 17, 2010 at 4:15 pm

Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies. Legend has it that a patron asked for the recipe and was told it was $3, but was charged on his credit card for $300, so he went back and told them if they didn’t appease him he would spread the recipe around the world. They have chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, and chocolate shavings. Mmmmm!

I don’t think I could really pick just one favorite chocolate dessert. I really don’t discriminate… I love them all. But I like my chocolate desserts warm and served with vanilla ice cream. So give me anything in that category and I’ll be a happy camper!

Anything with chocolate is my favorite thing to make. :) I probably make chocolate chip cookies more than any other chocolate dessert.

439 Carol November 16, 2010 at 11:43 pm

Nothing is better than a classic chocolate cake. Fluffy but rich, not too sweet, and covered with rich thick frosting.

440 britney November 16, 2010 at 11:33 pm

peanut butter chocolate balls that appear around Christmastime. They’re so yummy and are surrounded by great childhood memories!

441 laura k November 16, 2010 at 11:26 pm

Wow, those blondies look freaking spectacular.

As for my own personal favorite chocolate recipe, I’ve been making brownies since I was 10 years old. I even did a school “science” experiment revolving around brownies. I almost always use a recipe from a kids’ cookbook I’ve had for ever, but I’ve started to branch out a little more recently and experiment with new recipes.

I might have to make brownies tonight.

Brownies in any of their various delicious forms, but especially cheesecake brownies! Yum!

457 Jay November 16, 2010 at 6:28 pm

My great grandmother’s chocolate cake, topped with my mother’s fudge frosting, is the only chocolate cake I will bake from scratch — and it’s worth every bit of effort. It’s a densely chocolate, moist cake and the fudge frosting, while sinfully rich, is the only thing that should ever top it. Heaven on a plate!

458 Lynn November 16, 2010 at 6:17 pm

I looooove brownies. Especially a la mode!

459 Chaya November 16, 2010 at 6:06 pm

That’s a tough choice- I think I’d have to go with chocolate pots de creme. Mmm.

460 Hannah T. November 16, 2010 at 5:54 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is a double chocolate torte. It is a chocolate torte with a layer of chocolate mousse then a layer of fresh whipped cream then raspberries…soooo good.

461 Andrea November 16, 2010 at 5:34 pm

mmmmm….so many choices….chocolate covered espresso beans as a snack or mars bar cake (rice krispies with melted mars bars (or milky ways)). Yum!

462 Nama November 16, 2010 at 5:12 pm

My grandmother used to make this amazing chocolate pudding cake that was out of this world. I’m still searching for a recipe that’s as good as I remember it.

466 Dawn Darretta November 16, 2010 at 4:46 pm

My favorite dessert, using Ghiradelli chocolate products, is a flourless chocolate cake. It is a dessert that is not too sweet and oh so decadent! For years now, the only chocolate I use in my baking is Ghiradelli.

467 Lisa November 16, 2010 at 4:35 pm

My favorite homemade dessert is rocky road fudge!!! YUM! And you can melt it and put over ice cream too.

468 Maura November 16, 2010 at 4:23 pm

I looove brownies (even from a box) and molten chocolate cake. My sister made a quick recipe she found a few years back. So delicious!

469 Wendy November 16, 2010 at 4:22 pm

And I also Tweeted about it.

470 Nikki November 16, 2010 at 4:21 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is home chocolate molten cakes – I got the recipe from a family member a few years ago and have been making them whenever I have the ingredients on hand since. They’re gooey, delicious, and quick to whip up – doesn’t get much better than that!

471 Wendy November 16, 2010 at 4:20 pm

Definitely going to try these later on!

My favorite chocolate dessert is Crazy Cake with chocolate chip frosting and vanilla ice cream. I bet Ghirardelli dutch processed cocoa would really add something to the Crazy Cake (some people call it snack cake — it’s cake made without eggs).

472 Laura J November 16, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Brownies with peanut butter cups smooshed in. You make regular brownies (not from a box, because…eew) and pour them in the pan. Then just unwrap mini peanut butter cups & set them in prior to baking. Each brownie should have one peanut butter cup in it. When we’re feeling fancy, we serve this with vanilla ice cream.

473 Kim November 16, 2010 at 4:09 pm

My favorite homemade dessert was something my grandmother made each Thanksgiving called a Chocolate Dainty. It was sort of half cake/half chocolate mousse. She would also make homemade whipping cream to put on top of it. To this day I have never had such a decadant and rich dessert in my life. I miss my grandmother.

I just discovered your blog last weekend when I searched for “pumpkin doughnuts” and love it. My favorite chocolate dessert is just classic chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Oh, and the doughnuts were divine!

475 Dinetonite November 16, 2010 at 3:49 pm

Sounds FAB! Yum :)

478 linda November 16, 2010 at 3:23 pm

your blondies are magnificent & precise! wow!
i love chocolate..& think i make a wonderful chocolate layered cheesecake…milk, white & semisweet chocolates & topped with chocolate ganache.

479 Sara K. November 16, 2010 at 2:50 pm

Ooo! I want to make those blondies. I’ve never been a true fan of blondies, but knowing that there’s bittersweet dark chocolate inside makes me want to try them.

480 Amy Harrison November 16, 2010 at 2:43 pm

My grandma’s chocolate pie recipe with whipped cream is the best!

I love pretty much any thing chocolate, but classic Chocolate Chip Cookies right out of the oven are my fav :)

486 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday November 16, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Chocolate pudding or chocolate fudge or chocolate brownies or. . .
… okay, pretty much anything chocolate and homemade is awesome.

487 Lindsay November 16, 2010 at 2:26 pm

My favorite is my grandma’s chocolate chip cookies. Warm, thin, and crispy (she whips the butter into a frenzy to keep them light). Always uses the ghiradelli chips, too!

488 Kelly Bolduc November 16, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Staring in October my mom would make these delicious chocolate covered cream puffs. She would do it at night after dinner usually on Wednesday or Thursday, it was like a reward for doing so well in school that week. She wouldn’t do it all the time though like every other week or so. The original cream puff recipe came from this old, tomato red colored, Betty Crocker, 3 ring binder cook book.

489 Cheryl Newton November 16, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I am not normally a fan of chocolate cake (I know! Blasphemy!) but I love the one off the Hershey’s cocoa package. Yuuuuuuuummmmmy.

490 Cindy November 16, 2010 at 1:30 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is a warm brownie with peppermint stick ice cream on top!!!!

491 Kelly November 16, 2010 at 1:19 pm

mmm…chocolate covered strawberries. love them!

492 Olivia Tejeda November 16, 2010 at 12:37 pm

So many good chocolate comments are making it difficult to pick just one, but I have to stick with my long-time favorite … hot fudge brownie sundae. Nicole’s Hot Blondie recipe could be a close second. I’ll have to whip up a batch today.

493 Sandy Lory November 16, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Just a plain chocolate covered pretzel – love the sweet and salty combination.

494 Lael Hazan @educatedpalate November 16, 2010 at 11:56 am

OK… So HOW did you consume the entire thing? Of course, I also want to know how to get the calories out of it…. I have a firm belief that if you take a “bite” from your kids plate, it has no calories, right? My favorite chocolate dessert is the Cipriani Chocolate Gelato that my husband makes.

495 Elaine November 16, 2010 at 11:34 am

My favorite chocolate recipe is a peppermint chocolate cake from Bon Appetit.

496 Leslie November 16, 2010 at 11:19 am

My favorite chocolate recipe is chocolate gooey brownie with my grandmother’s sugary chocolate icing. Especially good right out of the oven with warm icing!

497 Wendy November 16, 2010 at 10:30 am

My favorite chocolate dessert is a hot fudge ice cream cream puff!

501 Erica November 16, 2010 at 8:01 am

Besides the fact that all desserts are my favorite thing to eat, my absolute favorite is a chocolate chunk cookie. I know… kinda boring, but they’re so simple to put together & can lift any mood no matter how bad. Really, can you pass up a good chocolate chunk/chip cookie?? Me, no way!!

502 carriem November 16, 2010 at 7:28 am

A Gourmet cake recipe for chocolate layer cake

503 Kellie November 16, 2010 at 7:19 am

My favorite chocolate recipe…ahh, chocolate fudge sauce, over ice cream. So good. Chocolate fudge sauce has to be made at home.

504 Renee November 16, 2010 at 5:32 am

Simple chocolate cake with white frosting is the best!

505 Kay Nicholas November 16, 2010 at 5:26 am

My favorite chocolate dessert is a chocolate cake that my daughter had in grade school. It was very basic….ingredients everyone would have on hand. The best chocolate cake and the best memories!!

506 tiffany November 16, 2010 at 5:09 am

I’m known for my chocolate truffles but I love whole wheat
Chocolate chip cookies. The hot fudge and homemade caramel oven homemade vanilla ice cream sounds unbelievable.

507 Brandie November 16, 2010 at 5:02 am

My favorite chocolate dessert is cookie or brownies…I simply love both! :)

508 Mary Jenkins November 16, 2010 at 4:59 am

My sister’s fudge is hands down my favorite!
quitecontrary1977@hotmail.com

509 lisa lacloche November 16, 2010 at 4:52 am

My favorite chocolate dessert is homemade chocolate cream pie with homemade whipped cream. The contrast between the crispy crust, the warm, thick chocolate and the cold whipped cream is delicious. Can’t eat it too much – it’s deadly. This is one of my favorite childhood memories.

510 TheBon November 16, 2010 at 4:34 am

Chocolate pudding. I don’t make it often, which is silly, but it’s delicious.

511 Brenda November 16, 2010 at 4:33 am

Chocolate chip cookies…warm from the oven.

512 Roxanne November 16, 2010 at 4:21 am

ONE of my favorite chocolate desserts is earthquake cake. Chocolate, coconut, and pecans, soooooo delicious!

513 Bri November 16, 2010 at 4:16 am

Okay, I just want to say: Ignore this comment, Larry Homestein, Chocolate Bushe, Martha and StarrySky. They are all me being insensitive and annoying, but I was just doing it for fun and because I was bored. As you can see, only one of them in the description would be considered a dessert anyway. I realized that even though it was fun making stuff up, I don’t want to be a trickster, because I realize this is a serious give away. It hurt my conscience, to say. You know what, I find writing and making things up very fun for some reason, so I’ll keep my creativity to myself. Thank you and please, IGNORE THIS AND MY OTHER NAMES LISTED ABOVE. Or just DELETE them. Thank You.

514 the blissful baker November 16, 2010 at 4:15 am

my favorite homemade chocolate dessert is fudgy brownies. the chocolatey fudgy-ness is so wonderful! the hot fudge blondie sundae looks to die for. wow!

515 Andrea November 16, 2010 at 4:14 am

That. looks. heavenly. I want to dig my spoon in right now!

My favorite chocolate dessert…let’s see. First, chocolate in general. Second, a hot brownie hot fudge sundae. Something else I’m craving? Rich chocolate cheesecake.

Mmmm. :)

516 Christine N. November 16, 2010 at 4:03 am

Favorite homemade dessert would definitely be tiramisu! :)

517 Chocolate Bushe November 16, 2010 at 3:54 am

Oysters are fine if your gullet can take them. Try a side of sauted butter and garlic. Though the cool thing is you can add chocolate pancakes to make a fine dimanche.

518 Larry Homestein November 16, 2010 at 3:52 am

You know, I have been learning French. French is the language of love, and I know my love is overflown with desserts out of every corner of the universe. I prefer a simple ganache, but with mint chocolate chip cookies sprinkled ontop and some cinnamon as well, sometimes I wish I could make it every day. But alas, for poor Yorick is not a Frenchmen…

519 Marilyn November 16, 2010 at 3:47 am

I’m an anomaly. A woman who ISN’T in love with chocolate! That said, I could eat chocolate molten cakes with really good vanilla ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I make a killer double chocolate ice cream that is so rich even the chocoholics in my family can only eat a small amount. And if those 2 decadent treats aren’t enough? Well, I really like double fudge cream cheese brownies. With ice cream. Vanilla. Enough said.

520 Martha November 16, 2010 at 3:47 am

Teriyaki beef with a side of char siu and some chocolate drizzled on the bones! Mmmm Delicious!!!1!!!11! A side serving of fresh kimchi goes well with it and if I want I could add some snickerdoodle cookies to put as garnish. Coolness!

521 Erica November 16, 2010 at 3:44 am

I choose cupcakes…every single time.

522 Liz @ blog is the new black November 16, 2010 at 3:39 am

All chocolate desserts are my favorite!!!!

523 StarrySky November 16, 2010 at 3:38 am

A chicken pot pie roasted by the hearth is a hefty dessert and helps build strong bones. For me, at least…

524 Cheryl November 16, 2010 at 3:37 am

One of my favorites is “Mississippi Mud Cake”. A homemade brownie base,
marshmallow cream layer and a thick homemade chocolate frosting. Mmmm!

525 bellini November 16, 2010 at 3:23 am

Do I have to pick just one chocolate gavourite. I love Cara,el Sea Salt Brownies, Molten Lava Cake as well as Chocolate Olive Oil Cake. Now I have made myself hungry.

526 Chantel November 16, 2010 at 3:18 am

I love blondies and definitely want to try this recipe. Looks amazing!

My favorite chocolate dessert to make is a simple chocolate pudding pie with pecans and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in. It’s classic chocolate with a little something special and it’s always a big hit with my family, especially around the holidays!

527 Erin November 16, 2010 at 3:11 am

Anything chocolate is wonderful but I love flourless chocolate cake the best.

528 Erin November 16, 2010 at 3:11 am

Anything chocolate is wonderful – but my flourless chocolate cake is to die for!

529 Kara B November 16, 2010 at 3:03 am

Now that it’s winter – I’m thinking about the from scratch peppermint brownies I made last year – yum!

530 Wendy November 16, 2010 at 2:50 am

My favourite chocolate dessert is the chocolate cake from the Rebar cookbook, from Victoria, British Columbia. The cake is everything you want it to be, and wonderfully decadent!

http://fivefortyathome.blogspot.com/2008/03/chocolate-cake-recipe-marks-birthday.html

531 sarah maizland November 16, 2010 at 2:49 am

that dessert looks yummo-licous! My favorite chocolate dessert is called “spring cake”. It is rich, chocolate cake with a fudge like frosting and it calls for cinnamon which gives it amazing depth.

532 barbi November 16, 2010 at 2:46 am

ray romano’s raspberry cream cheese brownies. yummy!!

533 Elise November 16, 2010 at 2:39 am

That looks delicious! I guess chocolate chip cookies have to be my favorite, since it seems like I can eat a dozen at a time…

534 Kristina Lewis November 16, 2010 at 2:38 am

I think my favorite chocolate dessert at “home” would be double chocolate chip cookies from a Ghiradelli recipe. They are quite delish!!! And easy too :)

535 Deb November 16, 2010 at 2:38 am

My favorite is MW brownie in a mug, just enough warm and gooey chocolate for one.

536 Kristen November 16, 2010 at 2:37 am

Chocolate mousse with a spiced kick!

537 Lois Lightweight November 16, 2010 at 2:34 am

I cannot wait to try this recipe. Trying to keep from drooling from the pictures
You posted of the Hot Fudge Blondie Sundae. Thank’s for recipe !

538 Alyssa November 16, 2010 at 2:30 am

I splurge on Ghiradelli Bittersweet chocolate chips every time I bake up a batch of choco chip cookies — those chips are soooo worth it. They make a good cookie GREAT. I love the looks (and description) of your blondies, and can’t wait to try your recipe. Also, thanks for the beautiful photography!!

539 Michelle November 16, 2010 at 2:24 am

I just visited Ghiradelli for my first time 2 months ago and it was Awesome! I just took my favorite dessert out of the oven… Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies. Simple but amazing

540 Katie November 16, 2010 at 2:23 am

My favorite homemade chocolate dessert would have to be the chocolate covered toffee squares that my mom always makes around Christmas! They are so sinfully delicious that I can only eat them once a year!

541 Katie November 16, 2010 at 2:22 am
542 michelle November 16, 2010 at 2:22 am

Brownies…or flourless chocolate torte…..or chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting….wait, I think there’s a trend here! :)

543 Chelsy E. November 16, 2010 at 2:14 am

My favorite chocolate dessert has got to be my mom’s chocolate delight. It starts with a buttery pecan crust, which you bake in the oven until golden brown. Then, you whip up a packet of creamy, chocolatey Jello pudding, and layer that over the crust. Then….you beat powdered sugar and cream cheese together and layer that over the chocolate layer. Repeat the layering process…then top the delight with homemade whip cream and devour immediately!

544 JulieAnn November 16, 2010 at 2:14 am

I make a chocolate cake that my husband and I love. If I’m not making it, I love my mom’s hot fudge, but I’m going to have to give this one a try!

545 Nikki November 16, 2010 at 2:14 am

My grandmother taught me how to make these cookies called oatmeal lace cookies – very simple and delicious. More or less just straight oats with melted dark chocolate drizzled on top. Incredible.

546 sara November 16, 2010 at 2:12 am

Oooooh, that dessert looks AMAZING! Yum. My favorite homemade chocolate dessert is chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting.

547 Abi November 16, 2010 at 2:08 am

coconut chocolate pudding

548 heather November 16, 2010 at 2:01 am

It’s the cake my fiancée and I will have at our wedding, the very first cake we baked together — flourless chocolate.

Cheers,

549 Kelli November 16, 2010 at 1:57 am

I love homemade chocolate chip cookies!!

550 regina November 16, 2010 at 1:55 am

I love homemade chocolate fudge…mmmm….!

551 briita November 16, 2010 at 1:50 am

that looks delicious! i love making a chocolate sauce based on coconut milk & bittersweet chocolate, and then, depending on the day spicing it up with a little allspice, coffee, or chili powder. it’s great on ice cream, bananas, or my favorite, as a dip for pretzels. and so versatile- want it richer, add some cream, want it chunky, add some toffee bits or nuts, the possibilities are endless!

552 Christine November 16, 2010 at 1:43 am

My chocolate craving go to is usually brownies, but hot fudge beats a craving better, but I don’t have a great recipe. Does yours stay thick when heated? What do you think the shelf life in the fridge would be? (Once in awhile I get disciplined…)

553 Jeanne November 16, 2010 at 1:41 am

Brownies are definitely my favorite! But a hot fudge sundae is a close second.

554 Lisa November 16, 2010 at 1:36 am

I love chocolate trifle.

555 Rachel November 16, 2010 at 1:34 am

Hands down, brownies!

556 Patricia November 16, 2010 at 1:32 am

My favorite chocolate dessert is dark chocolate cake.

557 Melissa November 16, 2010 at 1:17 am

blondies and hot fudge sundae!! INCREDIBLE!! there’s really nothing else to say…..

558 Kelly Meyer November 16, 2010 at 1:13 am

I have to say, the flourless chocolate cake is probably my favorite chocolate dessert and chocolate chip cookies are my favorite cookie! YUM!

559 Debbie D November 16, 2010 at 1:09 am

How can I choose a favorite homemade chocolate dessert? It would be choosing a favorite child! There are deep dark delicious brownies. Chewy Hot fudge sauce. Chocolate chip ice cream (homemade of course!) Put all three together and you have an epicurial heaven! Let’s not forget hot chocolate chip cookies out of the oven. How about chocolate bread pudding? It too, hot from the oven. Chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting or sour cream chocolate cake with sour cream frosting! How about a chocolate pudding cake with the gooey chocolate dripping over the warm cake? Topped with a little whipped cream with chocolate sprinkles. I won’t even start with what can be made from Nutella! Have you ever had Nutella biscotti (won second place on these at our County fair) dipped in European (read thick here) hot chocolate for breakfast on a cold winter morning??? How about warm chocolate pudding? How could I ever choose?????? The list could go on and on!

560 Allison November 16, 2010 at 1:03 am

My favorite homemade chocolate dessert has got to be a cake my mother has made for as long as I can remember. It’s a chocolate layer cake with my grandmother’s homemade strawberry jam between each layer, topped with a generous layer of chocolate ganache that drips down the sides.

561 The Duo Dishes November 16, 2010 at 12:55 am

Fondue. But of course!

562 Penny November 16, 2010 at 12:54 am

Ohhhh… chocolate frosting ;)

563 Jayne November 16, 2010 at 12:49 am

I have a great recipe for cheesecake brownies…yum!

564 Tricia November 16, 2010 at 12:47 am

That’s like someone asking which one of your children is your favorite. Anything chocolate….is that a good answer….probably not. I’ve been hooked lately with a chocolate, cranberry, orange problem. Tough problem.

565 Carolyn November 16, 2010 at 12:44 am

My favorite chocolate dessert by far is just a straight dark chocolate bar! Ghirardelli makes the best, of course!! :D

566 Robin November 16, 2010 at 12:32 am

Many others, but probably chewey brownies with cream cheese frosting, or german chocolate brownies with good vanilla ice cream.

567 emily November 16, 2010 at 12:21 am

My favorite is DEFINITELY brownies. Ah, I love brownies.

568 Jennifer Patzkowsky November 16, 2010 at 12:19 am

Chocolate chip cookies. The Toll House recipe is the best!

569 Jessica November 16, 2010 at 12:18 am

I found the most outstanding flourless chocolate cake online years ago from the California Egg Commission. With Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate, instead of the semi sweet indicated in the recipe, it’s even darker and more deliciously decadent.

570 Ellen November 16, 2010 at 12:17 am
571 Emily W November 16, 2010 at 12:17 am

They have many names, but they’ve got rice krispies, peanut butter, corn syrup, butterscotch and chocolate chips. I could eat those all day.

572 Paige November 16, 2010 at 12:14 am

I love chewy brownies, with whole chocolate chips inside

573 Ellen November 16, 2010 at 12:14 am

I really like a simple chocolate chunk cookie.

574 Katherine November 16, 2010 at 12:13 am

I love making brownies with both cocoa powder and melted chocolate. They are so rich and fudgy!

575 Shannie B November 15, 2010 at 11:52 pm

My new favorite is the ultimately gorgeous chocolate gingerbread cookies I just made.

576 Misty November 15, 2010 at 11:52 pm

I love molten chocolate cakes, but Martha Stewart’s Outrageous Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies are the best!

577 Jessica K November 15, 2010 at 11:51 pm

Brownies with chocolate chips, the perfect chocolate chip cookie, or homemade chocolate pudding…please don’t make me pick!

578 natalie November 15, 2010 at 11:47 pm

I love everything chocolate. Ghiradilli is amazing. I like the caramel filled squares best.

579 danielle November 15, 2010 at 11:35 pm

i have this white chocolate cream cheese frosting that i think i put on almost any cake i make that it would feasibly go with. so delicious.

580 judd November 15, 2010 at 11:29 pm

my fav is walnut Brownies with a scoop of Chocolate icecream….
i have to try your blondies….ummmm

581 Aubrey Shelsta November 15, 2010 at 11:26 pm

I love anything with chocolate and PB, a sinfully delicious combination. I think buckeyes and chocolate cake with PB cream cheese frosting are by top two.

582 meeyeehere aka Rachel Crisman November 15, 2010 at 11:25 pm

Fudge is my favorite home made chocolate treat!
jacksoncrisman@yahoo.com

583 Suzanne Barker November 15, 2010 at 11:24 pm

My favorite is called Condon Mudhens (from a friend in Condon, Oregon) that is a chocolate chip cookie recipe pressed in a 9×13 pan and topped with a brown sugar meringue and then baked. Gooey and delicious.

584 RH November 15, 2010 at 11:23 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is banana ice cream (read: one frozen, pureed banana) with cocoa powder.

585 Elizabeth November 15, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Devil’s Food Cake from the Joy of Cooking, plain and simple.

586 Angela November 15, 2010 at 11:23 pm

I have a special place in my heart (and stomach) for cinnamon oatmeal cookies loaded with huge chunks of Ghiradelli chocolate served warm with homemade vanilla ice cream. Ahw! I wants some right now!

587 Kelly November 15, 2010 at 11:22 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert to make is a devils food cupcake with a chocolate ganache center.

588 Frieda November 15, 2010 at 11:18 pm

My favorite homemade chocolate dessert to date has to be chocohotopots, a decadent, fudge-y, brownie-like piece of heaven served in a ramekin! I used Ghiradelli’s double chocolate bittersweet chips and they were fabulous in this recipe!

589 Eliza November 15, 2010 at 11:14 pm

Chocolate yogurt snack cakes, from smitten kitchen. They are fluffy and chocolatey, with a delicious almond and vanilla flavor. Yum!

590 Rick Aldrich November 15, 2010 at 11:13 pm

Earthquake cake is my favorite. You can’t go wrong with chocolate and coconut.

591 Sarah November 15, 2010 at 11:11 pm

My husband makes the most amazing from-scratch chocolate chip cookies. I’ve used the exact same recipe and they never turn out exactly like his! Mmmm

592 bjrooks November 15, 2010 at 11:08 pm

My favorite is an old family recipe for a 12 layer cake with chocolate icing, that I have adaped the icing to use Ghiradelli semi sweet & bittersweet chocolate. Never thought the traditional could be better, until Ghiradelli…….I am probably gaining weight just writing about it………..

593 Elly November 15, 2010 at 10:59 pm

warm brownies…..with vanilla ice cream

594 cassie November 15, 2010 at 10:53 pm

fudge-y brownies are always the way to go for me.

595 Vicki November 15, 2010 at 10:44 pm

I like to reduce port, stir in chocolate until melted, and serve over ice cream with raspberries.

596 Jeanne November 15, 2010 at 10:41 pm

I’m addicted to chocolate, and especially Ghiradelli Triple-Chunk Chocolate Brownies. I’m hungry now!

597 Donna November 15, 2010 at 10:38 pm

The dessert looks so tempting and delicious. I normally don’t care for chocolate fudge, but would have no problem eating it.

I have a brownie recipe to die for. I usually load it with nuts and chips and bake it to a soft stage. They disappear quickly. It only uses one cup of flour.

598 kayduh November 15, 2010 at 10:36 pm

My favorite (white) chocolate dessert is Oreo Truffles. White chocolate + oreos + cream cheese = amazing

599 Nathan November 15, 2010 at 10:33 pm

now I know what I would like for dessert – I have to wipe off the drool from my keyboard

I have to say my favorite Chocolate dessert is Molten Lava Chocolate Cake – I like to put it into a muffin tin because making it in say a 9×9 is too tempting for more helpings

600 Janice November 15, 2010 at 10:31 pm

Nmmmmm!

601 Audrey November 15, 2010 at 10:30 pm

I love my recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies :)

602 Jenni Rich November 15, 2010 at 10:30 pm

I’m kind of drawing a blank I can’t get that hot fudge out of my head. I haven’t had success making my own but a simple hot fudge sundae is one of my all time favorite desserts!

Chocolate Pudding – served hot or cold!…or the most decadent, dark, rich Voldetorte we make for are Harry Potter themed parties – it will turn any chocolate lover to the dark side :)

My favorite will always be good ol’ fashioned chocolate chip cookies. This dessert looks pretty fabulous too!

613 Tracy November 15, 2010 at 10:09 pm

I think brownies are my favorite chocolate creation of all time. In between fudgy and cakey density, with white frosting on top.

Classic chocolate chip cookies – right out of the oven. Heaven!

616 Connie November 15, 2010 at 10:07 pm

There are so many chocolate recipes I love making, but one of my favorites is Chocolate Brownies. I found a recipe online and have since made it many times differently until I decided it was my perfect brownie. 2nd choice would be chocolate cake. Funny you should try a hot fudge sauce recipe using Ghirardelli Chocolate, because I’ve made my husband go on road trips to San Francisco to have a hot fudge sundae from an ice cream shop in Ghirardelli Square.

Love the picture of your blondies cut up.

My favorite chocolate recipe would be pretzel & peanut butter truffles; crush up pretzels, graham crackers, nuts and mix them with peanut butter. Let the mixture firm up in the freezer, shape them into balls, let them firm up again and finally coat in chocolate to eat! :)

620 Laurie C November 15, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Well, considereing the photo-taking time, I hope you ate the sundae before the ice cream melted too much! We do a Better Than Sex dessert that has a brownie/Oreo base with a chocolate mousse/Oreo/white chip/pecan topping that’s a favorite. We make white chocolate covered popcorn for the holidays that people rave about.

My favorite dessert to make with chocolate is my grandfather’s chocolate mayonnaise cake. I’ve learned that I should use the highest quality chocolate *whenever* I can. I don’t have chocolate that often, so when I do, I’m worth the expensive stuff!

624 Deb November 15, 2010 at 10:02 pm

A family favorite is “Decadent Chocolate Cake” (from the Silver Palate cookbook) drizzled with pureed raspberries over the ganache icing. Ghirardelli chocolate makes it over the top decadent!

625 Bec Sleeman November 15, 2010 at 10:01 pm

How could I go past the good ol’ Chocolate Brownie!?

626 Ruby November 15, 2010 at 9:58 pm

I had the fortunate experience of trying these, and boy was I lucky! These are almost too good to be real!

629 Jamie N November 15, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Wow! Those blondie’s turned out beautiful!

My favorite dessert is chocolate chip cookies hot from the oven with cold milk.

630 Shawn November 15, 2010 at 9:53 pm

Baked Fudge…you know the recipe! Ree Drummond makes it. Absolutely incredible!

631 Susan T November 15, 2010 at 9:53 pm

I love my sisters truffles. They are to die for!!! NO kidding.

632 Jan November 15, 2010 at 9:52 pm

I think my favorite chocolate dessert is chocolate cobbler

633 Kate November 15, 2010 at 9:52 pm

I love Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies!

634 Claire November 15, 2010 at 9:51 pm

Chocolate lava cake! Mmm, mmm, good!

635 Ale November 15, 2010 at 9:51 pm
636 Dena November 15, 2010 at 9:50 pm

the blonde brownies look awesome, definitely trying that, probably our fav chocolate recipe is no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies, will have to experiment with some different Ghirardelli chocolates, one of the best recipes I ever made was black bottom banana pie, lots of chocolate, bananas and cream

637 Erin Clark November 15, 2010 at 9:50 pm

My favorite chocolate recipe are my Mom’s Congo Bar.. Don’t deny that jungle beat Congo Bars are good to eat!

638 Leah November 15, 2010 at 9:49 pm

I love hot chocolate. It is so simple to make from scratch and tastes a thousand times better than a packet. When you add a dallop of fresh whipped cream with a splash of amaretto whipped in, it will make you want to cozy up next to the fireplace.

639 Diana M November 15, 2010 at 9:49 pm

I thought it would be too chocolatie, but it was soo goood. I will definately make it again. Perhaps share it will family.

640 Ale November 15, 2010 at 9:48 pm

My favorite is chocolate cheesecake! YUM

641 M @ Betty Crapper November 15, 2010 at 9:48 pm

I have too many favorite homemade chocolate desserts to pick just one. I will tell you that I’m making brownies today using Ghirardelli chocolate. I absolutely love those and yes they are among my favorites.

642 Jenelle November 15, 2010 at 9:47 pm

My fav is my 6-layer brownie bars topped with everything under the sun; from chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, coconut, jam, to caramel. For the brownie I always use Ghirardeli brownie mix. It is the richest and most chocolatey!

643 Jenn November 15, 2010 at 9:46 pm
644 Sarah November 15, 2010 at 9:46 pm

I love the little molten lava cakes where the chocolate just oozes out of them! SO SO SO easy to make but looks like you went through a lot of trouble :)

647 Rachelle November 15, 2010 at 9:43 pm

I love that chocolate pudding cake, like the lava cakes. It’s always something I can run in and make, since the ingredients are always there. =)

648 lex November 15, 2010 at 9:40 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is fudge, especially this time of year. The richness keeps me warm during these cold winter nights.

649 ladywild November 15, 2010 at 9:40 pm

I love plain ole yummy chocolate the best. Melt on your tongue goodness.

650 Julie (Bananas for Bourbon) November 15, 2010 at 9:40 pm

I have to choose one? Probably the chocolate raspberry cake I made for my husband’s birthday that has since become “the birthday cake”. I even used Ghirardelli chocolate when I made it!

651 Maggie Hagan November 15, 2010 at 9:38 pm

My favorite chocolate dessert is a big chocolate chip cookie, still warm from the oven, topped with hot fudge and peanut butter sauce. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

652 Rachel Geary November 15, 2010 at 9:38 pm

My dad grew up in San Francisco and South City, and my mom in San Bruno. This meant when people would come to visit or my parents just wanted to take my brother, sister and me someplace special, we would head to the city and to Ghirardelli. Now we do this for my niece and nephew. Keeping the tradition alive!

653 Whitney Hartwell November 15, 2010 at 9:35 pm

I recently made candy bark for Halloween and that is now my new favorite chocolate recipe to make at home. So many options for variations depending on your holiday or mood!

654 Cindy D. November 15, 2010 at 9:34 pm

I love Kentucky Derby Pie and I try to have Ghirardelli chocolate chips on hand whenever I make it. I made a mistake a few years ago and made the pie using store-brand chocolate chips…bad mistake. Only the best for this pie (and most of my other desserts, too.)

655 courtney k November 15, 2010 at 9:32 pm

Very tough to narrow it down, homemade chocolate anything is pretty much wonderful, but if i had to choose one it would a chocolate cupcake….. with homemade ganache…. mmmmm

656 Michelle November 15, 2010 at 9:29 pm

It’s a toss-up between chocolate chip cookies and brownies for me.

657 Mami2jcn November 15, 2010 at 7:05 pm
658 Mami2jcn November 15, 2010 at 5:57 pm

Chocolate chip cookies are a favorite around here!

659 leanne November 15, 2010 at 5:20 pm

I love making chocolate brownies at home. (I do love blondies, but crave the chocolate versions more often). Homemade hot fudge just makes everything better!
