Torte, Elsaís on the Park
Elsaís is known for its martinis and burgers, but it
should also be known for this cake. Dense, moist chocolate cake
comes with equally dark chocolate mousse, and some whipped cream to
lighten things up. Also delectable is the gooey butter cake with
Call it chocolate with a view. Layers of chocolate
cake and dark chocolate pastry cream, plus whipped cream and
raspberry, make this the bomb.
Chiffon Pie, Story Hill BKC
A citrus shortbread cookie crust gets topped with
some serious chocolate cream, orange-kahlua flavors and, oh, mounds
of whipped cream. Itís over the top, but in the best way possible.
Raspberry Dome, Le Reve Patisserie & Cafe
Picking just one dark chocolate dessert at Le Reve is
nearly impossible ó there arenít any bad choices here, and no matter
what patisserie confection you choose, youíll be over the moon and
in love with it. The dome starts with a pistachio cake, then
raspberry and dark chocolate mousse and raspberry gelee swirl
together and get topped with a glaze of dark chocolate.
Chocolate Apples, Amyís Gourmet Apples (formerly Amyís Candy
The basic dark chocolate over caramel over a
ginormous Granny Smith apple is pretty darn tasty. But you can also
add in Oreo cookies or Butterfinger candies or peppermint or colored
jimmies ó or, well, just about anything yummy that goes with
chocolate and apples. But probably the best is just plain, dark
Belgian chocolate with a sprinkling of sea salt.
Peppermint Trifle, Third Coast Provisions
Third Coast might be known for its seafood, but,
letís be honest, youíre coming here for the dessert. The trifle
layers a dark chocolate brownie, with milk chocolate pudding,
peppermint cheesecake and chocolate sandwich cookies.
It sounds crazy,
and it is ó crazy delicious.
