Today is the last Chocolate Monday of 2014 and I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the most popular chocolate recipes of the year. These are recipes that the readers of The Heritage Cook visited the most often this year – some older classics, some newer offerings, but all wonderful choices for Chocolate Mondays. The recipes vary from cakes and brownies to pastries and cookies. There is truly something for everyone.
For those of you who are gluten-free or baking for someone who follows the GF diet, the older recipes have not be adapted yet but you can substitute my favorite GF flour blend in equal portions to the flour called for in the recipes. Just be sure to weigh the flour blend … 120g for every 1 cup. And if you choose another GF flour blend, make sure it contains xanthan gum or add 1/4 tsp to the dry ingredients.
As a baker from the time I was a tiny tyke, instead of picking the top 12, you are getting a Baker’s Dozen! Now let’s get to the recipes, counting down to Number One!
13. Blackout Cake
I hope you enjoyed this walk down Chocolate Monday memory lane and discovered some treats you may have missed through the years.
It’s almost time to pop the champagne and say good-bye to 2014. I’m getting ready for a new year full of Chocolate Mondays in 2015. Can’t wait to show you what I’ve got planned!
