Dove is celebrating 30 Days of Dove Dark Chocolate and they asked me to create a dessert recipe using Dove Dark Chocolate. Well, I couldn’t resist a request to create a tasty dessert. After thinking about it for a bit I decided that a s’more cheesecake would be the perfect recipe to use Dove Dark Chocolate. Now we can enjoy s’mores all year round and not just when we are camping. Just a word of warning. These are incredibly delicious. Make sure you invite friends over for dessert on the day you make these.
Now, when it comes to dark chocolate I prefer to cook with it rather than enjoy it plain, but I know a lot of my friends consider Dove Dark Chocolate the perfect indulgence. I do, however, enjoy pairing dark chocolate with a nice hardy red wine. They compliment each other perfectly.
I posed this question to my Facebook friends: “What is your favorite way to indulge in Dove Dark Chocolate?” Here are some of the replies:
Now I know why they are my friends. They don’t hold back when it comes to sharing their enjoyment. There are so many recipes that are enhanced by using Dove Dark Chocolate. I’ll be sharing a couple more this week. They are all just as drool worthy as this one.
