Calling All Chocoholics: 5 Decadent Chocolate Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Treat your sweet tooth to Food Network's most-indulgent chocolate desserts, including gooey cakes, over-the-top brownies and next-level cookies.

There are chocolate lovers — and then there are chocoholics, a term reserved for only the most-diehard chocolate fanatics, those who dream about sleeping on a bed of fluffy chocolate frosting and swimming in a vat of chocolate fondue. If you consider yourself a member of this super-sweet club, you're in luck: FN Dish is here with five of the most-over-the-top chocolatey recipes that you're sure to swoon over this Valentine's Day.

Hot-from-the-oven chocolate cake on the outside with a pool of rich, creamy melted chocolate in the center: That's the scene taking place when you make Giada De Laurentiis' Warm Chocolate Cakes with Berries (pictured above). The beauty of Giada's fuss-free cakes is that you can prepare them in the morning, then come back to bake them right before you're ready to eat them, so you're guaranteed a deliciously warm dessert. Follow Giada's lead and add just a pinch of espresso powder to the batter; it will enhance the flavor of the chocolate without adding a coffee taste.

If you prefer something chilled to something warm, look no further than this easy-to-prepare Triple Chocolate Pudding, laced with cocoa powder plus bittersweet and white chocolates for added indulgence. Garnish each cup with a topping of fluffy whipped cream.
