Double Chocolate Bread PuddingIf you want to experience chocolate heaven, you must try The Red Fish Grill‘s Double Chocolate Bread Pudding. Seriously, it’s worth a trip to New Orleans just for this. It’s not easy to describe, but it’s a bit like a super rich, super moist brownie/cake with a delectable, crunchy crust on top. They bake it when you order it, so it’s served piping hot. As you eat, a triangular piece of white and milk chocolate that’s wedged in the middle gradually melts, making every bite a chocolate sensation. And as if that weren’t enough, the server drowns the whole thing in melted milk and white chocolate at the table. Pure decadence! The only drawback is it takes 20 minutes to bake, so make sure you order it with your entrĂ©.

Chocolate Snowman CookiesThese chocolate-covered shortbread cookies from Jo’s Candies in Torrance, Calif. are truly decadent. Regularly $4.99 for a package of three, they were on sale at Whole Foods yesterday for $2.99. The buttery richness of the shortbread nicely complements the chocolaty exterior. Add a cup of hot cocoa and you’ll be in chocolate heaven!
