Chocolate Overdose Cake



1 Andrea January 31, 2011 at 5:40 am

I think my favorite way to eat chocolat, at this exact moment anyway, is probably in the form of an ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie, fresh from the oven. It’s making my mouth water as I type this. Truffles are close second though ;-).

OR a simple square of Dove dark chocolate. Seriously, probably the best eating chocolate I’ve had.

2 Lindsay January 31, 2011 at 5:46 am

I have to pick a favorite, does loving chocolate in all forms count? I it’s a tie between chocolate frosting and brownies(especially with chocolate chunks).

3 Margo January 31, 2011 at 6:13 am

Definitely chocolate chip cookies–all the goodness of chocolate but not too rich so you can each a gazillion of them and keep going!

4 Judy January 31, 2011 at 6:18 am

I love brownies with cooked fudge frosting…. YUM!!

5 Susan Smith January 31, 2011 at 6:30 am

I just like chocolate! Brownies are good, truffles are good, buckeyes are good…

6 Jordan January 31, 2011 at 6:30 am

I love to freeze my chocolate first. I’m a huge texture person and I generally take a little longer to eat my chocolate so it doesn’t melt all over me as quickly!

7 Amy January 31, 2011 at 6:37 am

Brownies, definitely. But I will take chocolate in any form :)

8 Eliza January 31, 2011 at 6:41 am

Any form is amazing. Most recently I’ve been craving Belgian chocolate ice cream. Yum…

9 Annie January 31, 2011 at 6:57 am

My favroite way to eat chocolate is snuggled up on my couch, no one around and savoring every bite….but then the crowd comes in and it’s a free for all, so it’s a mad dash to get what you can and find a spot to eat it :)

10 Sarah January 31, 2011 at 6:59 am

This give away is right up my alley because my fav form of chocolate is in the form of amazing truffles! I love the expensive choc shops where I can only afford maybe 2 truffles but I savor them like there’s no tomorrow! Thanks for the chance to win! Love your blog :)

11 Jaime January 31, 2011 at 7:04 am

Really? Only ONE way? That’s tough. It used to be hot fudge sundaes, chocolate chip cookies, or fudgy chunky brownies, but, now that I’m more mature (yeah, right!)I find that savored bites of dark chocolate along side a nice glass of red wine are simply divine.

12 Sarah January 31, 2011 at 7:05 am

With a spoon. But if you mean in what form…I’d say a chocolate cupcake with kahlua icing and maybe a little ganache somewhere in there too. I like me some chocolate :-)

13 Sarah R January 31, 2011 at 7:14 am

Dark and in bar form. Doesn’t need to be fancy as long as it’s dark :)

14 Heather S January 31, 2011 at 7:25 am

Just one way….I’d say warm chocolate chip cookies out of the oven. The chips still need to be warm and gooey. Not what I should be thinking about during my first day of a detox cleanse.

15 The Blue-Eyed Bakers January 31, 2011 at 7:26 am

Straight up. Just give us the chocolate. We’ll eat chips out of a bag or break off giant chunks of a Green & Blacks bar like there’s no tomorrow!

16 karen d January 31, 2011 at 7:30 am

Chocolate. Chocolate warm and gooey. Chocolate warm gooey, and all mine. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be molten chocolate lave cakes.

17 Tania January 31, 2011 at 7:36 am

I love chocolate in any form – my favorite is whatever I have around at the time:)

18 Emily O. January 31, 2011 at 7:37 am

Homemade chocolate ice cream…or the brown sugar chocolate chip bars from the Death By Chocolate Cookies cookbook. So delicious!

19 Katie January 31, 2011 at 7:40 am

I love to eat my chocolate between graham crakers and marshmellow’s.

20 Carissa January 31, 2011 at 7:41 am

I don’t discriminate, I will take chocolate in any form!

21 Megan January 31, 2011 at 7:52 am

I love a big fat, ooey, gooey brownie right outta the oven with a big glass of milk!

22 Camila January 31, 2011 at 7:53 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate might be to drink it, haha… I love hot chocolate!

23 Liesel January 31, 2011 at 7:55 am

Yummy, yummy, chocolate frosting! I could eat it off the spoon, no cake required.

24 Christina January 31, 2011 at 7:56 am

ooh..chocolate! my favorite way to eat it is in squares of 70% dark with a wonderful glass of red wine. :)

25 Sara January 31, 2011 at 8:01 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in the form of an unforgivably dense, rich, and decadent brownie.

26 tiff January 31, 2011 at 8:02 am

I love chocolate mousse. That’s my favorite thing to eat that’s chocolate.

27 Melissa January 31, 2011 at 8:03 am

After making ganache, I love for it to harden a little and spoon it out of the bowl.

28 Courtney January 31, 2011 at 8:07 am

Chocolate mousse has to be my favorite way to eat chocolate, though I’ll eat it just about any way. :)

29 Dani January 31, 2011 at 8:12 am

My favorite vehicle for chocolate is a soft, gooey, fresh-from-the-oven, no edges brownie. Mmmmm, heaven.

30 Beth G January 31, 2011 at 8:14 am

I don’t care how predictable or passe it may be, I love chocolate lava cakes with all my heart.

31 Hayley January 31, 2011 at 8:16 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in a triple chocolate decadence cake with chocolate ganache slathered on top!

32 Kyle January 31, 2011 at 8:30 am

Melted. Any chocolate you can eat with a spoon is the best for me.

33 Laura Wifler January 31, 2011 at 8:34 am

Chocolate Frosting. So good.

34 Sara Caldwell January 31, 2011 at 8:37 am

Definitely a REAL homemade brownie, no nuts, just chocolate!

35 Fallon January 31, 2011 at 8:40 am


36 Ginny January 31, 2011 at 8:42 am

Delicious! :)

37 Thea January 31, 2011 at 8:48 am

The best way to eat chocolate is with your hands! Cookies, brownies, pieces, candies, etc.

38 Jason January 31, 2011 at 8:49 am

I’d have to go with fudge on a coffee ice cream sundae (almonds, fudge, caramel, whipped cream). Close second is pecan caramel chocolates, but they’re easier to make whenever I want.

39 Fei-fei January 31, 2011 at 8:51 am

Sneaking it from my pantry baking supplies – M&Ms, chocolate chips, Hershey kisses.

40 Tracy Lynn January 31, 2011 at 8:55 am

In a fudge like brownie, topped w vanilla bean ice cream and homemade caramel. Dont forget the nuts, whipped cream, and a cherry of course!

41 Meredith January 31, 2011 at 9:03 am

Submerged in cookie dough!

42 Nichole Van Bruggen January 31, 2011 at 9:05 am

A straight from the oven brownie, with ice cream and caramel sauce on top. Oh and sprinkles!

43 Lori January 31, 2011 at 9:08 am

Chocolate cookies straight from the oven!

44 Leigh January 31, 2011 at 9:09 am

Definitely a warm, fudgy brownie!

45 Summer January 31, 2011 at 9:10 am

Is there a bad way to eat chocolate? My favorite is definitely truffles – rich and decadent but also bite-size so you’re less likely to be caught red-handed!

46 Anastasia January 31, 2011 at 9:17 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is every way! lol, I am particularly fond of smitten kitchen ‘s best cocoa brownies, made with hershey’s special dark unsweetened cocoa powder…. or anything chocolate from my local pastry shops….

47 katie January 31, 2011 at 9:25 am

My favorite chocolate item is molten chocolate cake, I don’t care if it is out of fashion or not, it is so good.

48 Jen K. January 31, 2011 at 9:25 am

I love love love chocolate fondue!!!

49 Lori January 31, 2011 at 9:27 am

Chocolate with Peanut Butter! They are meant for each other.

50 Shawndra January 31, 2011 at 9:28 am

Chocolate fudge sauce drizzled over ice cream.

51 mikki January 31, 2011 at 9:31 am

squares of chocolate, any kind but lovely posh dark or even a piece of milka are wonderful dipped into a hot café au lait!

52 duchessbelle January 31, 2011 at 9:35 am

In brownie form. Or icing.

53 Becky January 31, 2011 at 9:40 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate (if i had to pick just one) would be in cake form. Yum!

54 kimB January 31, 2011 at 9:41 am

Tough question…I’m going with – as ganache on a cake.

55 Jenn Lee January 31, 2011 at 9:47 am

Anyway I can get it, but probably my all time favorite would be either as a rich, dark shell on strawberries or as a thick drinking chocolate. So good!

56 Julie R January 31, 2011 at 9:47 am

My favorite way is hot fudge sauce over ice cream.

57 Ginny January 31, 2011 at 9:47 am

Actually, your chocolate overload cake. I’ve made it twice since you first posted it. I would make it more often but it is, as I’m sure you know, quite dangerous.

58 Nikki January 31, 2011 at 9:57 am

Chocolate with peanut butter!!! In cookies, brownies, cakes, etc. or when I am desperate, just take a spoonful of pb sprinkled with chocolate chips.

59 Jen January 31, 2011 at 9:59 am

Decisions – decisions…with fruit…in cookies…by itself…with a cup of cocoa or coffee…in a brownie…but the answer is…

in a cake – chocolate cake with chocolate icing. My “birthday cake” choice growing up.

60 Brooke January 31, 2011 at 10:01 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate would have to be in brownie or chocolate chip cookie form! Love! :)

61 Elizabeth January 31, 2011 at 10:02 am

My favorate way to eat chocolate is easily on a pretzel covered in toffee. Yum

62 Barb @ Iced Tea in the Afternoon January 31, 2011 at 10:10 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is BY MYSELF! With two pre-schoolers…need I say more…

63 angela January 31, 2011 at 10:10 am

I love anything with nuts or toffee!

64 Kira January 31, 2011 at 10:16 am

I love, love, love chocolate with fresh fruit! Strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, passion fruit, anything fresh!

65 Angie January 31, 2011 at 10:25 am

In any form, preferably with peanuts or peanut butter!

66 Tiffany January 31, 2011 at 10:25 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in ice cream. Or on ice cream. Or just with a side of ice cream! I need something cool to balance out all that richness!

Can’t wait to check out all the chocolate recipes!

67 Kelsey January 31, 2011 at 10:41 am

What a wonderful giveaway! It’s very difficult to choose just one way to eat chocolate, but if forced, I’d say my fave is to have a great square of dark chocolate with a cup of very hot, strong coffee.

68 vanillasugarblog January 31, 2011 at 10:42 am

oh my gosh my favorite chocolates of all time? it’s these! hello! have you ever had la Maison du Chocolat? they are to die for good. a close 2nd is death by chocolate cake

69 Lynn January 31, 2011 at 10:46 am

It’s hard to pick just one, but I love a good chocolate brownie.

70 Bekah January 31, 2011 at 10:48 am

Anything with the chocolate/peanut butter combination!

71 Valerie January 31, 2011 at 10:59 am

I love a rich & creamy chocolate frosting… even better when it’s on chocolate brownies! Mmmm!

72 Mohana January 31, 2011 at 11:04 am

I love it on lava cakes… or chocolate ice cream with hazelnuts!

73 Alice C. January 31, 2011 at 11:10 am

I’d have to say my favorite use of chocolate is on strawberries! Yum!

74 MicheleB January 31, 2011 at 11:13 am

As big giant chunks in either ice cream or cookies!!

75 Amanda L January 31, 2011 at 11:16 am

My favorite way to eat chcolate would be big chunks of dark chocolate inside a warm cookie. YUM!

76 StaciM January 31, 2011 at 11:18 am

Either a decadent moist chocolate cake with hot fudge sauce and ice cream – OR – homemade hot chocolate. Yummo!!!

77 Kathleen P January 31, 2011 at 11:37 am

Chocolate lava cakes are the favorite around here and a definite menu item for Valentine’s Day and anniversary at my house. But twist my arm and I’ll eat chocolate in just about any form. (-:

78 Lana January 31, 2011 at 11:42 am

Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting: bundt, cupcake, layer, whatever. But I’m not choosy. I’ll take a bar of 70% chocolate straight up, too.

79 Nive January 31, 2011 at 11:43 am

The best way I can savor chocolate is in the form of syrup over any kind of dessert which makes anything richer…thanks for this giveaway…

80 Amy January 31, 2011 at 11:44 am

I can’t resist a really moist chocolate cake.

81 Melissa Hoffman January 31, 2011 at 11:45 am

Chocolate Lava Cakes are our fav around here. But you can’t beat any chocolate any way with a glass of red wine. Mmmmm.

82 Sara January 31, 2011 at 11:55 am

My favorite way to enjoy chocolate is probably with a good chocolate fondue!

83 Mayra W. January 31, 2011 at 11:58 am

My fav way would be as a cake or cupcake.

84 Wendy January 31, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I love a good bar of chocolate, especially with any type of peanuts, almonds or hazelnuts– yum!!

85 Jen January 31, 2011 at 12:02 pm

I love chocolate in baked goods.

86 Cassie January 31, 2011 at 12:05 pm

I love chocolate Bundt cake with powdered sugar glaze, but homemade chocolate ice cream runs a close second!

87 Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking January 31, 2011 at 12:09 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is just as-is! There’s nothing better than the pure, real thing, no fuss, melting in your mouth. Great giveaway!

88 Annah Lee January 31, 2011 at 12:37 pm

I love a good chocolate bar, curled up on the couch with my sweetie in my jamies. Pure indulgence!

89 Seetha January 31, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I love love love brownies. Chewy, gooey, ooh. I love your giveaway too. I love WS’s hot chocolate and that’s what I want to get with it.

90 Vanessa January 31, 2011 at 12:44 pm

I LOVE Lindt truffles and any type of chocolate dessert… :)

91 jamie January 31, 2011 at 12:46 pm

for a quick fix, warm brownies and vanilla ice cream is great. when i can wait for that first bite, i’m really into dark, rich chocolate tarts right now. YUM!

thanks for the giveaway!

92 Kendra January 31, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Chocolate molten cake with salted caramel sauce. YUMMMM!!!!

93 Lauren at KeepItSweet January 31, 2011 at 12:50 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in ice cream:-)

94 Lindsey N January 31, 2011 at 12:50 pm

I take my chocolate straight from the bar! I have a secret chocolate bar stash where I keep several flavors for those late night (or not so late) cravings.

95 heather January 31, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I like plain dark chocolate, eaten by itself, or maybe with a glass of milk. Though a dark chocolate-dipped date or fig is amazing as well.



96 Jen January 31, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I love eating chocolate baked in cookies!

97 PomJob January 31, 2011 at 12:53 pm

With peanut butter. Or in ice cream.

98 Julie (Bananas for Bourbon) January 31, 2011 at 12:58 pm

I love chocolate anything, but the best way to enjoy just chocolate, to savor the chocolate, it just a simple truffle. Can’t beat a perfect truffle.

99 Irene January 31, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Probably a brownie straight from the oven. So good!

100 Cara January 31, 2011 at 1:03 pm

oh so many ways– but I keep a little jar of chocolate on my desk just for when I get tired of talking to people I can eat a little piece and just enjoy it!

101 Kelly J January 31, 2011 at 1:10 pm

I don’t know if it’s my favorite or not, but I always like to have it easily accessible, so there’s almost always a jar of Hershey’s Kisses on my kitchen counter.

102 Jenn S January 31, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Any and every way!!!

103 Melissa January 31, 2011 at 1:23 pm

yum, chocolate!!!!

104 Rhi January 31, 2011 at 1:27 pm

With wine!

105 KristieB January 31, 2011 at 1:31 pm

I have yet to come across a way to eat chocolate that I didn’t love!

106 Linda January 31, 2011 at 1:45 pm

With peanut butter!

107 Karen January 31, 2011 at 1:50 pm

One heavenly piece at a time, from Chocolaterie Stam. Unbelievably good European filled chocolates, handmade in Iowa. Yes. Iowa. ?

108 Dee January 31, 2011 at 2:07 pm

I love eating chocolate bars. There are so many different flavors to try!

109 Erica January 31, 2011 at 2:13 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate? Does inhaling count?

110 Sarah January 31, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Chocolate chip cookies! Yum!

111 Kimiko January 31, 2011 at 2:40 pm

My favorite way of eating chocolate is with strawberries…my 2 favorite things. :)

112 Becky Z January 31, 2011 at 2:44 pm

with peanut butter or by itself… slowly… with my eyes closed

113 Charlotte January 31, 2011 at 2:54 pm

Chocolate-covered strawberries! Or brownies…or both : )

114 Anna M January 31, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Melted, whipped, fried, in bar form…. I’ll take it all! :)

115 seedless grape January 31, 2011 at 3:02 pm

If it’s good chocolate–then straight up!

116 Gwyn January 31, 2011 at 3:09 pm

As a cupcake or truffles! Rich, dark chocolates (not too sweet) are my favorite!

117 LeAnne January 31, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Combined with raspberries in any way, shape or form!

118 laura January 31, 2011 at 3:37 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate:
a huge slice of chocolate cake with chocolate icing between layers and on the outside supplemented with a huge glass of milk of course!


OR if i can’t have that

nutella and wontons

get those little wonton wrapper squares from the store, put a little spoonful of nutella in the middle, fold corner over to make a triangle and pinch edges

fry in a little oil until golden and crispy

sprinkle a little powdered sugar


or chocolate almonds

i’m craving chocolate like a mad woman right now–i could go on and on lol

def. looking forward to that cake post tomorrow :)

119 karen January 31, 2011 at 3:50 pm

Pretzels dipped in chocolate or a big spoon of peanut butter topped with chocolate chips! I’m such a cheap date.

120 PastormacsAnn January 31, 2011 at 3:51 pm

Chocolate fondue! Definitely!

121 Ashley T. January 31, 2011 at 3:54 pm

My fave chocolate candy every has to be Hershey’s New York Cheesecake Kisses, but I CANNOT find them ANYWHERE anymore. =( The other way I like to eat chocolate is probably either my mom’s/aunt’s recipe for Mississippi Mud 7-Layer dessert or Chili’s White Chocolate Molten Cake. YUM!

122 Mellybrown January 31, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I am not a huge chocolate fan, but I have to say I am finding it impossible to resist nutella at the moment. My husband, however, is a chocolate fiend. He would love these truffles.

123 pastormac January 31, 2011 at 4:01 pm

My favorite ways:
1) With my sweeetheart (pastormac’s ann).
2) with peanut butter
3) with abandon
4) chocolate dipped in chocolate sounds good.

124 Kim January 31, 2011 at 4:05 pm

Chocolate mousse or chocolate pots de creme! But I’ll take it any way I can get it. Mmmmmm!

125 Sarah S January 31, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Almost any way that I can get my hands on it. Though I love chocolate mousse, truffles, ice cream, and cookies.

126 Kelsey January 31, 2011 at 4:09 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is straight up! I love eating milk chocolate bars piece by piece.

127 Liz N January 31, 2011 at 4:13 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is via Nutella. I am shameful in my consumption of that product. No day is complete without a spoonful (or more!) of Nutella in my life!

128 Tanya R January 31, 2011 at 4:15 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is just to simply suck on it, till it melts in my mouth! My favorite Chocolate is Cadbury mini eggs around easter time, it’s almost that TIME :) Thank you for the giveaway, YUM!

129 Nicole January 31, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Cake! So I’m really excited about your cake recipe.

130 Courtney January 31, 2011 at 4:20 pm

It has to be cake… with lots of cake and frosting layers!

131 Katherine Hernandez January 31, 2011 at 4:27 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is with a diet pepsi, I like taking a bite and drinking the pepsi, and making the pepsi fizz like crazy!!!

132 Lindsay January 31, 2011 at 4:34 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in the form of frozen chocoalte cupcakes. When I was a child, my mom and I once made a batch of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting, and put them in the huge freezer in the garage. In the days after, I volunteered to take out the trash, or tidy up outside, and sneak one. Then another, etc. Obviously, when it came time to defrost them for service, it was discovered how many I’d eaten, and we had to bake them anew!
Now, I always stash a couple in the freezer for my own secret treats!

133 Ashley January 31, 2011 at 4:37 pm

I love eating chocolate as fondue. Chocolate covered fruit is delicious!

134 m @ random musings January 31, 2011 at 4:43 pm

just one…..?

flourless chocolate cake. when I’m too lazy (read: weather is too hot) to bake, chocolate ice cream is nice, too

135 Margaret Barry January 31, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Chocolate chip cookies.

136 Danielle January 31, 2011 at 4:55 pm

I love it on strawberries. It should be the only way to eat fruit!

137 Jessica January 31, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Mmmm… with a glass of red wine. Talk about the ultimate indulgence!

138 Beth January 31, 2011 at 5:21 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is with peanut butter and oats in no-bake cookies!

139 Janice Jung January 31, 2011 at 5:34 pm

Chocolate with milk!!!

140 ms ellie January 31, 2011 at 5:46 pm

dark chocolate covered raisins!

141 Daniela January 31, 2011 at 5:58 pm

There are so many ways! With peanut butter, in cake, chocolate napoleons, pure melt-in-your mouth kisses…I could keep going!

142 Christina January 31, 2011 at 5:58 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is whenever there is peanut butter alongside :]

143 Holly H. January 31, 2011 at 6:00 pm

Rich chocolate frosting and cake – nothing better!

144 Katie January 31, 2011 at 6:10 pm

I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter!!!

145 Stephanie Coleman January 31, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Looks like my new favorite way will be this cake that you are posting tomorrow! :)

146 Jessica January 31, 2011 at 6:17 pm

I love chocolate! My favorite way to eat chocolate is in any candy form. I’ve been enjoying a box of Russell Stover’s finest chocolates lately.

147 Chris M. January 31, 2011 at 6:23 pm

My favorite is as chocolate bread pudding. Thanks.

148 Kristina January 31, 2011 at 6:42 pm

My favorite is hot chocolate with a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper stirred in. Sweet with the heat. Nothing beats it!

149 Amber January 31, 2011 at 6:51 pm

I just love chocolate! It is great with peanut butter, fruit, anyway at all. Just delicious. :) My current fixation is red velvet cupcakes.

150 Lisa January 31, 2011 at 7:10 pm

If I had to pick a single chocolate dessert to eat the rest of my life, it would be chocolate mousse. It’s all about the chocolate, and you can flavor it with other things like Baileys or Kahlua to change the flavor on a whim.

By the way, La Maison du Chocolate champagne truffles are the most exquisite chocolates in the world. My husband courted me with those, having them shipped from NYC to Seattle every couple of months.

151 Patricia January 31, 2011 at 7:19 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in a rich, moist cake. Yum!

152 Claudia January 31, 2011 at 7:28 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in the form of brownies… or even just brownie batter :)

153 Linsy Holyoak January 31, 2011 at 7:35 pm

I love to brake off a piece of chocolate, and just let it slowly melt. I love chocolate in any way, shape, or form!

154 Emily January 31, 2011 at 7:48 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is to make something new and different with it and then savor that fact that I made something wonderful and delicious. And sometimes I even choose to share it with others. : )

155 Deanna Moore January 31, 2011 at 7:51 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is as fast as I can. Then when Im calm a little more slowly. Love it all the time.

156 Cara January 31, 2011 at 8:14 pm

Favorite way to eat chocolate? I might just have to go with brownie batter :)

157 Sarah @ Cooker Girl January 31, 2011 at 8:17 pm

I don’t care what form the chocolate is in, I’ll take it!

158 Marzipan January 31, 2011 at 8:44 pm

Love chocolate in all forms!

159 Siunna January 31, 2011 at 8:54 pm

If it’s chocoalte, I’ll eat it..but my fave way is a luxurious truffle!

160 Sara January 31, 2011 at 9:01 pm

In large quantities? In any form really!! Dark chocolate best.

161 Melissa January 31, 2011 at 9:11 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is truffles!!!

162 Brandi January 31, 2011 at 9:13 pm

as much as I can as fast as possible before my hubby and kids get to it :)

163 Leigha January 31, 2011 at 9:15 pm

In hot fudge on top of vanilla ice cream!!

164 Sarah January 31, 2011 at 9:20 pm

I think my favorite way to eat chocolate would be in a scotcharoo, or maybe a cheesecake. I can’t pick only on!

165 Jordan January 31, 2011 at 9:23 pm

chocolate dipped caramels with sea salt!

166 Natashia January 31, 2011 at 9:24 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate: every way!!! I love it!!

167 Lindsey January 31, 2011 at 9:28 pm

My favorite is any type of chocolate ice cream. Texas heat means we need lots of cool treats!

168 Lisa F. January 31, 2011 at 9:35 pm

Um, does “for breakfast” count?! I’ll take it any way I can get it! Especially if you pair it with peanut butter or coconut, I don’t stand a chance. :-)

169 Rachael January 31, 2011 at 9:38 pm

I recently discovered the delicious-ness of homemade chocolate ganache! Smooth, creamy, chocolately… what’s not to love?!?!

170 Courtney January 31, 2011 at 9:40 pm

Favorite way is to add it to oatmeal

171 Patty January 31, 2011 at 10:09 pm

Gramma’s secret hot fudge recipe!

172 Pilar January 31, 2011 at 10:10 pm

Chocolate mousse!

173 heather January 31, 2011 at 10:47 pm

Smores!! Gooey marshmallows, slightly melted chocolate and a crunchy graham cracker..mmmmmmm!!!

174 laura January 31, 2011 at 10:49 pm

my favorite way to eat chocolate is in a chocolate extreme blizzard from dairy queen made with chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. so yummy!!

175 Lindsay Tjarks January 31, 2011 at 11:21 pm

Chocolate ice cream, thank you very much!!!

176 Ellen February 1, 2011 at 12:01 am

Cake!!! But not just any cake – moist chocolate cake with layers of mousse and a ganache frosting – yum. What a yummy giveaway!

177 Chris @ HyeThymeCafe February 1, 2011 at 1:31 am

Count me in! I’ll take my chocolate any way I can get it, but I love to just let it melt slowly in my mouth and savor every moment. Next would be wrapped around a luscious strawberry – yummmmm!! Love chcolate AND Williams-Sonoma, especially their Panettone around the holidays. I swoon at the mere suggestion of that stuff!

178 Jen February 1, 2011 at 3:03 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is drenched over strawberries! I’ve made chocolate-covered strawberries at home, but nothing compares to the ones I get every year at the Renaissance Festival. They sell “The Queen’s Berries” where you get a cluster of three huge, juicy strawberries covered in dark and white chocolate. HUZZAH!

179 BeckyS February 1, 2011 at 5:16 am

Chocolate nut clusters. The perfect combination of my two favorite things. Mixed nuts and dark chocolate? Winner, winner! Dark chocolate has health benefits and so does nuts! I’ll invent any excuse to eat these two treats!

180 Marcy S. February 1, 2011 at 6:25 am

My Fave way to eat chocolate is FROSTING with anything… graham crackers and frosting, cake and chocolate frosting, strawberries and chocolate frosting… MMMM CHOCOLATE frosting!

181 Teresa February 1, 2011 at 7:55 am

love to have the chocolate any which way!! Mmmmmm Chocolate.. It’s even good in Beer

182 Hila February 1, 2011 at 8:06 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is when it is covering a huge ripe strawberry! YUMM :)

183 Stephanie February 1, 2011 at 9:07 am

I like my chocolate dark and room temperature. It’s nice if there is some fruit or something that makes it extra luscious – but chocolate is heavenly all by itself.

184 Michelle T. February 1, 2011 at 9:16 am

Any kind of chocolate covered fruit is the BEST to me…especially chocolate covered strawberries or cherries!

185 Mellisa W. February 1, 2011 at 10:08 am

Pie. Thanks!

186 Sharlene February 1, 2011 at 10:19 am

La Maison is my favorite chocolatier! I always try to find a way into their shoppes for a quick indulgence if I can.

187 Sharlene February 1, 2011 at 10:20 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is plain. Just a little nibble at a time.

188 Mestebla February 1, 2011 at 10:36 am

I am not picky with my chocolate! I like it anyway I can get it… cookies, cake, pudding, plain…

189 Kristen February 1, 2011 at 11:00 am

Any which way, in massive, inappropriate quantities.

190 caleen February 1, 2011 at 11:09 am

Every way possible. Especially with caramel and peanut butter. Or fruit. Or out of a frosting can. Just really.. any way.

191 shawn February 1, 2011 at 11:51 am

I honestly can’t think of many ways in which I wouldn’t enjoy chocolate, but favorite chocolate treats include homemade fudge, brownies and eclairs. Oh my!

192 Jennie February 1, 2011 at 12:27 pm

I love to eat chocolate in truffles or chocolate chip cookies!

193 Kat Whitford February 1, 2011 at 12:38 pm

I am a purist. If it is really good chocolate a small (or perhaps a NOT so small ) piece of plain chocolate is hard to beat in my book!

194 Coleen February 1, 2011 at 1:37 pm

I like chocolate right out of the box or in chocolate souffle cake.

195 Stephanie February 1, 2011 at 1:37 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in brownies. I’ve never been a big fan of chocolate cake, but I love brownies.

196 Theresa February 1, 2011 at 1:51 pm

I prefer chocolate as chocolate chips baked into something. Chips in brownies, cookies, breads, you name it! There’s just something charming about a tiny morsel of chocolate. :)

197 Jeanne ODonnell February 1, 2011 at 2:29 pm

with peanut butter of course!!!

198 Erin February 1, 2011 at 2:54 pm

I don’t discriminate when it comes to chocolate but I’d have to say in cake form with a lovely chocolate frosting is my current favorite!

199 Lindsay February 1, 2011 at 3:31 pm

On strawberries from Godiva!

200 Lanea E. February 1, 2011 at 3:44 pm

All kinds of chocolate lol, but you can’t beat a really good chocolate chip cookie

201 Melinda February 1, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Oh gosh, I love chocolate all ways..particular favorites are chocolate mousse, chocolate ice cream and dense chocolate torte.

202 Sam February 2, 2011 at 10:44 am

Chocolate in any form is fine with me. Ice cream, cake, cookies, hot chocolate, etc. If it’s chocolate, it’s my favorite way to eat it.

203 grace February 1, 2011 at 4:23 pm

i like my chocolate as a coating, whether it’s draped over caramel, mint ice cream, cake, or pretzels. :)

204 Megan February 1, 2011 at 4:33 pm

Favorite way to eat is slightly melty with a fresh from the oven cookie… and a big glass of milk

205 Delia February 1, 2011 at 5:20 pm

I like any chocolate, but I love a good rich chocolate dessert with a glass of red wine. Something about the chocolate & wine combo that makes it feel like you’re breaking rules.

206 Holly B February 1, 2011 at 5:53 pm

Mine is at work for a pick me up, when I hit about 3:30 I get a little hungry and on comes the chocolate!

207 Tierney February 1, 2011 at 6:10 pm

A perfect brownie!

208 Kelly R February 1, 2011 at 6:23 pm

SIPPING CHOCOLATE. I recently discovered this at the local chocolate shop. Warm, rich, and SO decadent…like drinking a truffle. It’s incredible.

209 seo k. February 1, 2011 at 6:59 pm

When I eat chocolate, I like to nibble on small bits of dark chocolate. On some occasions I make chocolate mousse (one part chocolate, one part water).

210 Melissa P February 1, 2011 at 7:59 pm

The best way I like to eat chocolate is licking it off my fingers. Nothing better than eating anything chocolate and it melting in your hand and licking it off. Okay, I love smores! Melted chocolate on graham crackers and marshmallows, yumm.

211 Allison February 1, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Does stuffing it in my mouth count as a favorite way to eat it? J/K. I like my chocolate in truffle form or over caramels. Or if I’m feeling like I should watch my weight I will dip fruit in chocolate…cause thats healthy, right?

212 Amanda February 1, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Tough choice, but I’m going to go with warm chocolate chip cookies. Those truffles look like they could take the cake, though. mmmmmm!

213 June g. February 1, 2011 at 8:59 pm

A nice yummy hot fudge sundae, with a little raspberry sauce on the side:)

214 Christine February 1, 2011 at 9:19 pm

Anything with hot fudge…ice cream, brownies, fruit. Yummy!

215 Lyn February 1, 2011 at 9:21 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate? SLOWLY AND FREQUENTLY :-)

216 Taylor February 1, 2011 at 9:23 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in a rich, fudgy brownie!! With a side of milk!

217 Crystal February 1, 2011 at 9:31 pm

I like my dark chocolate frozen so I have to suck on it and it takes longer to eat! esp trader joes truffles right from the freezer!

218 Kristine February 1, 2011 at 9:33 pm

In large volumes? That’s a legitimate answer right?

219 samantha February 1, 2011 at 9:35 pm

I lOOOOOVE my chocolate anyway I can get it. Covering coffee beans, strawberries, pretzels. Large chunks of dark chocolate. In my ice cream, brownies, cookies, cake. As long as I can eat it and enjoy it, I’ll have it anyway I can get it.

220 Lisa B. February 2, 2011 at 6:52 am


221 Bridget February 2, 2011 at 8:33 am

A microwaved s’more!! Melted Hershey, gooey marshmallow, crunchy graham cracker–HEAVEN!!!

222 V.Y.Jackson February 2, 2011 at 9:20 am

My way is to let the chocolate melt slightly between my fingers so I can enjoy both textures. The melted and the firm, yummy!

223 Rachel February 2, 2011 at 11:04 am

Chocolate chip cookies… Mmm or ganache!

224 Posti4 February 2, 2011 at 11:22 am

A big piece of blackout cake, ice cold milk & my family sitting besise me!

225 Jamie February 2, 2011 at 11:39 am

Chips… straight from the bag!

226 Laura February 2, 2011 at 12:20 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is homemade brownies!

227 Ashlee February 2, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Hot Fudge with a spoon!

228 Catherine February 2, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I love to eat chocolate any way at all but however I eat it I do it with my 2 1/2 year old who calls it choclit and LOVES it – makes it better to share with him!

229 Rochelle February 2, 2011 at 12:45 pm

anyway is the right way to eat chocolate?! love cookie and cake…or hot choc pudding over ice cream.

230 Lisa Silver February 2, 2011 at 1:26 pm

I love chocolate in ANY form!!! But, there’s something amazing about chocolate and nuts – peanut butter, pecans, almonds / almond paste… you name, I love it!!!

231 Ashley February 2, 2011 at 1:37 pm

hmmm ya, chocolate in any form in any fasion would be great by me! I do enjoy chocolate that will melt in my mouth though!

232 Jenny February 2, 2011 at 1:51 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is smooth, creamy, chocolate ice cream! Eaten slowly, straight from the container, while sitting on the couch.

233 Jennifer Savage February 2, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Chocolate fondue at our favorite fondue restaurant…Yum!

234 Jeanne February 2, 2011 at 4:00 pm

A hot fudge sundae with vanilla ice cream, lots of hot fudge sauce and marshmallow creme on top — heaven!

235 Nanners February 2, 2011 at 4:16 pm

chocolate…best eaten when I’m breathing…on days that end in “Y”!

236 Abby M February 2, 2011 at 4:54 pm

I love chocolate and peanut butter! :)

237 Judy Utsler February 2, 2011 at 5:26 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is the slightly melty/slightly hardened chocolate on the edge of the tray when I dip candies. Mmmmm.

238 Ellie February 2, 2011 at 5:30 pm

I love to make homemade hot chocolate (with three types of chocolate) with home made whipped cream dusted with cocoa powder and a touch of cinnamon. Mmmmm

239 Jynielle Wells February 2, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Chocolate ice cream

240 Stacey February 2, 2011 at 7:32 pm

My favorite way to eat chocolate is straight up! Having a bar of 70% in the house keeps me from eating too many cookies by satisfying chocolate cravings in small doses. :) That cake looks DELICIOUS!

241 Erin February 2, 2011 at 8:29 pm

Chocolate fudge!!! :)

242 Austyn Pritt February 2, 2011 at 10:04 pm

I love eating double chocolate chunk cookies! yummm.

243 Ruth February 2, 2011 at 10:14 pm

Almost anyway I can get it!

Lately, I love the Milka bar with toffee from Germany, Godiva’s Salted Caramel is a good replacement.

244 Savannah Sipperly February 2, 2011 at 10:25 pm

Brownie batter, of course!

245 Mishelle February 2, 2011 at 11:04 pm

I think I would like to mainline it if it were possible…otherwise anyway is the best way!!

246 jennifer February 2, 2011 at 11:31 pm

In a chocolate amaretto cheesecake

247 Amy February 3, 2011 at 2:06 am

just chocolate is great :) but brownies (still warm) would be the best… or fondue

248 Ruby February 3, 2011 at 5:41 am

I don’t think I’ve met a form of chocolate I didn’t like… but if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be brownies!

249 Audrey February 3, 2011 at 6:41 am

My favorite is chocolate mousse!

250 Happy When Not Hungry February 3, 2011 at 8:27 am

I love chocolate covered anything… pretzels, strawberries, raisins, peanuts, etc. Yum!!!

251 Kristen February 3, 2011 at 9:10 am

I absolutely love Hershey bars. The plain milk chocolate is delish!

252 jenk February 3, 2011 at 9:25 am

definitely brownies… and if those brownies are in a hot fudge brownie sunday, all the better!

253 Carol Davis February 3, 2011 at 10:08 am

I like a plain ole chocolate bar although a truffle runs a close second.

254 Gwyn February 3, 2011 at 10:58 am

Truffles… Hot chocolate… Cupcakes…

255 Katie February 3, 2011 at 11:56 am

chocolate chunk brownies…maybe even topped with a big scoop of chocolate ice cream and hot fudge!

256 Amy February 3, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Hmmm, probably just the classic M&Ms. If I need a chocolate fix I keep mini bags in my desk at work for a pick-me-up!

257 Brittany February 3, 2011 at 12:15 pm

I have to say, my homemade chocolate buttercream frosting is one of my favorite ways to eat chocolate. I’ll take it in almost any form though!

258 Katy R February 3, 2011 at 12:29 pm

I’m a sucker for hot chocolate in any form, it’s liquid ganache!

259 Kerstin February 3, 2011 at 12:29 pm

In chocolate chip cookies!

260 Jamie February 3, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Chocolate chip cookie dough…I whip up a batch often and just leave the bowl in the fridge to nibble on!

261 JulieAnn February 3, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Any way! I love it straight up, as hot fudge, in chocolate cakes, in chocolate chip cookies, as hot chocolate. What’s not to love?

262 Cori February 3, 2011 at 4:19 pm

I can’t just name one way I love to eat chocolate! I just love the stuff… in cookies, as truffles…

263 L33anna February 3, 2011 at 9:35 pm

I love my chocolate in chocolate chip cookies and REESES Pieces! Yum!

264 Damaris February 4, 2011 at 12:00 am

My favorite way to eat chocolate is in the bathroom, where I have the legitimacy to be alone and no one will come in and bug me. I just sit on the floor and indulge myself without sharing one bite.

265 Jessica February 4, 2011 at 8:41 am

My favorite is hot chocoloate!

266 Sam February 4, 2011 at 9:24 am

Chocolate in all forms!

267 Natalie February 4, 2011 at 9:58 am

Chocolate fondue is my favorite! Or just a chocolate chip cookie is enough.

268 Kat February 4, 2011 at 10:45 am

As long as the chocolate is with peanut butter, it’s a win =]

269 Maria B February 4, 2011 at 11:09 am

A good piece of chocolate and a deliciously fresh apple: Nothing can top that :)

270 Sara February 4, 2011 at 12:48 pm

I love chocolate in any form!!

271 Lauren February 4, 2011 at 1:25 pm

I love dark chocolate best so pretty much anything with dark chocolate disappears quickly! I like to eat it best with my husband though!

272 Margie February 4, 2011 at 2:25 pm

I love brownies most of all.

273 Andrea February 4, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Chocolate can be a religious experience :) Love smooth rich chocolate when it just melts on your tongue!

274 Beth February 4, 2011 at 4:15 pm

morsels, truffles, in cookies, cupcakes, brownies. To me it doesn’t matter how, as long as I have chocolate!

275 Ify February 4, 2011 at 6:30 pm

As fast and as much as possible.

276 Ceri February 4, 2011 at 9:05 pm

by mouth. And frequently. And in warm, fudgy brownie form when possible.

277 Fabiola February 4, 2011 at 11:10 pm

I’ll eat chocolate in any form I can get it :D
cookies, brownies, cakes….yum yum yum!!!!!
