Bacon Fudge to Brownies: 20 Chocolate Treats from 2009

The Kitchn's Best Recipes of 2009

We don't eat chocolate very often, but when we do, we go all out. Here, from candied bacon fudge to olive oil mousse, and from chocolate cookies that are nutty and dark to ones that are featherweight and chewy, are some of our favorite chocolate recipes from this past year. Chocolate with Nutella, chocolate with Guinness, chocolate with peanut butter — it's all here.
