Death by Chocolate
Sounds like a hell of a way to go, right? But don’t worry, no dying required, only pure bliss! This is a yummy dessert that my mom makes every holiday season. Making this recipe with my mom is one of my most precious childhood memories. I would stand by the stove and wait for my mom to let me lick the leftover brownie batter from the bowl, and again with the leftover chocolate pudding. The best part came when it was time to smash the Butterfingers. My mom would put half in a gallon Ziploc for me, give the other half to my twin brother, give us a rolling pin, and we would have at it! Get the family in on the holiday festivities by making this dish together.
This year, my mom decided not to make it because Hurricane Harvey left us without a kitchen. For me, the holidays are not complete without Death by Chocolate. This year, I’m taking on the task! I followed my mom’s instructions and it turned out perfect! It tasted exactly as it does when my mom makes it. My first taste testers were my coworkers at our Christmas Party, and I received endless compliments and was told I was “wife material.” Safe to say, it’s a hit! I made it again for family Christmas where it was a success as well. I believe making it has officially been passed down as my holiday duty!
I am Really Into Death by Chocolate. It’s perfect to have at your New Year’s Eve bash, or any holiday party. My Christmas is not complete without Natchitoches Meat Pies & Death by Chocolate. Check out the recipe below!
