I love chocolate and it is so quick and easy to make that I can surprise my family anytime of the year. This is also good using chocolate fudge flavored pudding mix. You can also use chocolate flavored Cool Whip instead of regular Cool Whip. It depends on how much you love chocolate. Feel free to add toppings of your choice.
Save some room for the meal''s grand finale, a real super-star of a dessert, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie. From Sara Walker of Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, this pie is simply divine. Says Sara, “This is always a family reunion favorite. Kids love it!” And there's certainly lots to love; it's creamy and really full of peanut and chocolate flavors. Also, it only has 5 ingredients, and with just 15 minutes of chilling time necessary, this pie's ready before you know it!
“This recipe is fun for kids but can also be the perfect ending to a gourmet meal,” says Kim Terhune of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. “And as the chocolate cools, it gets thicker and coats the food even better!”
It's easy to keep the ingredients for this rich fondue on hand in case company drops by. I serve it in punch cups, so guests can carry it on a dessert plate alongside whatever fruit, pretzels and other dippers they like. —Cheryl Arnold, Lake Zurich, Illinois
My dad sandwiches mint patties between two tender chocolate cookies to create these chewy treats. The blend of chocolate and mint is a big hit at our house. Best of all, these cookies are easy and fun to make.

Mom has made this sweet treat for years. Since she knows how much my sister and I like it, she's still happy to serve this torte when we're home for a meal. The chocolate-covered graham cracker crust and fluffy filling are extra-special.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
My husband dreamed this recipe up one night using skim milk and a few lighter convenience items. The result was this fluffy rich-tasting dessert that the kids and I request time and again.—Sue Yaeger, Boone, Iowa
