While I enjoy cooking, my real love is baking. My grandmother taught me to bake and to love baking. She also shares my major sweet tooth. While our favorite thing to bake was peanut butter cookies, we also baked with chocolate every once in awhile. And we both love chocolate!
Since I was a kid I have loved baking for others, especially when they needed some cheering up. One time I baked chocolate chip cookies for the local college ministry during finals week. This is the same place I met my husband. Coincidence?
Baking a chocolate treat is a simple gesture but one that can really brighten someone’s day.

Today happens to be National Chocolate Day so what better day to share some delicious chocolate recipes? I could have easily shared hundreds of recipes but that would be a really long post so I’ll just share twenty that looked especially good.
I can’t wait to try these recipes. The hard part is deciding which to try first!
