Home-Cooking: Wow-Worthy Chocolate Desserts

Are you having the in-laws over? Throwing a posh summer party? Life is full of visitors, and having an exciting dessert is the perfect way to wow your guests. Make sure they leave happy every time by making your dessert a chocolate one.

Here are four chocolate dessert ideas that are sure to impress your guests.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries: 

These are pretty, delicious, and always a crowd pleaser. Jazz them up by drizzling them with white chocolate or sprinkling them with nuts before cooling. For details on how to make flawless chocolate-dipped strawberries, including the best chocolate to use, check out this article.

Chocolate Fondue:

Fondue is a fun and sophisticated party option. Prepare a large platter with different salty and sweet food choices – pretzels, chopped fruit, maybe even something quirky like bacon or radish slices. Place a generous number of fondue skewers on the side, and put your fondue heater in the center of the platter (VanZeek’s Brazilian Dark Dipping Chocolate makes the perfect fondue chocolate). Minimize mess by providing plenty of napkins, or even rolled wet washcloths if you are so inclined.

Manjo Dark Chocolate Cake: 

This cake may well be the life of your party. Made with VanZeek’s Manjo Dark Chocolate, it sure doesn’t scrimp on decadent flavor. For complete instructions, visit this article.

Chocolate Truffles:

This is by far the easiest option on the list, although it is no less impressive than the others. Buy truffles from VanZeek beforehand; the company carries wholesale as well as smaller sizes, so you can count on them for anything from small get-togethers to wedding parties. Before your guests arrive, arrange the truffles in glass or crystal bowls and place them around the entertaining area. Then sit back and wait for your guests to rave about your delicious choice of decor.
