I admit it; I tend to be an emotional eater. And it seems nothing cures the winter time blues like some scrumptious winter dessert recipes. Put a chocolate Tiramisu cake recipe in front of me, top it off with some frozen chocolate mousse pie, and give me some chocolate truffles made with cookies, and I'm pretty much good to go. And if you have a couple of extra surprise winter dessert recipes to spring on me like a Nutella chocolate cake or even that old stand-by, the German chocolate cake, then my mood lifts considerably.
If you've found that the winter blues have grabbed you, it may just be in your best interest to whip up one of these winter dessert recipes to keep around to have after a delicious meal of hot winter soup or some leftover prime rib recipe. They'll pick up your spirits and give you a chocolate boost, which you now can eat with complete confidence. After all, scientific research now says that eating chocolate is good for you, so here's to your health and your palate!
Winter Dessert Recipes List: From Chocolate Tiramisu Cake to German Chocolate Cake
Chocolate Tiramisu cake is one of the best pick-me-ups that I know, and in fact, tiramisu means "pick-me-up" in Italian. What could be better to ward off the winter blues than a winter dessert recipe that combines the decadence of chocolate with touches of coffee flavoring infused throughout? Positively tasty!
Frozen chocolate mousse pie was what I used to eat at the diner I worked at when a shift got especially stressful. It worked every time! I was ready to go back to work after this chocolate-infused-mood-enhancer.
What I like about good chocolate truffles recipes is that they're bite-sized. Naturally, this might be a danger of these scrumptious desserts as well since, well, they're only bite-sized. You can't just eat one, now can you?
Nutella, that concoction of chocolate and hazelnut that sort of feels like frosting in your mouth, might just be Ambrosia. It certainly tastes like the food of the gods. This Nutella chocolate cake allows you to eat said Ambrosia in a more civilized manner. After all, it does look a little more dignified that spooning Nutella straight from the jar, although I'm not above that!
I don't think any winter desserts recipes list could be complete without at least one old stand-by that we all grew up with. For me, that's German chocolate cake. And this is no ordinary cake; it comes the chef master mind of Bobby Flay. Nothing like layers of chocolate cake covered with sweet coconut frosting. Tasty!
