Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week, we're all about ooey gooey sinfully decadent chocolate desserts!

Over 20 Decadent Chocolate Desserts | Food Bloggers of Canada

We've all given in at some point in our lives. You know what I'm talking about - that dessert on the menu that you know you can't possibly eat on your own because it will be so rich and decadent and over the top and full of chocolateIf you were feeling generous you might ask for extra spoons to share with your friends but, deep in your heart, you really wanted it all to yourself.

We know... we've been there.

In Vancouver there was even a small chain called Death By Chocolate. It was one of the only places in town you could go for an over the top, perfect chocolate dessert any time of day. Alas, they have all since closed (they had the best chocolate cake).

But, that's ok because we've hit the jackpot here with this new chocolate dessert recipe collection that will satisfy those cravings. Some of them take a little extra time in the kitchen but some of them are surprisingly easy to whip up like the unassumingly named Chocolate Vanilla Ice Box cake from Delicious on a Dime or Dish 'n' The Kitchen's Chocolate Biscuit Cake.

If you love the chocolate/citrus flavour combo you'll want to check out the Chocolate Orange Tart from Sweet Lizzy or Food Nouveau's Blood Orange Chocolate Fondant Cakes. There's lots of tarts to sample - many of them vegan and gluten-free. And for something elegant try Urb'n'Spice's Chocolate Torte With Feuillette or Chef Sous Chef's Port Poached Pear Chocolate Cake.

And for something really different, there's Chocolate and Connie's Melting Chocolate Orbs or Celebrations Generation's Chocolate Dessert Ravioli.  There's lots to choose from - over the top cakes, fudge, creme brûlées, mousses, and truffles.  However you want to get your creamy, rich chocolate fix, you'll find something perfect here.

Any may we remind you that Valentine's Day is coming soon? Why not make one of these over the top decadent chocolate desserts and break out a second spoon to share with somebody important in your life? (can we just say we're available??).

Of course, if you just need to reward yourself for a job well done - like remembering to get the garbage to the curb on time, these are perfectly acceptable ways to say "great job".
