More often than not, Saturday night is movie night in my house, and with a movie comes dessert!

We rotate who gets to pick the movie each week, which means every four weeks I get to pick. Who wants to watch Little Women? Meeee!!! When it comes to dessert if I have to choose between chocolate and anything else, I’m always choosing chocolate. My boys might not love every movie selection I make, but chocolate is always a winner.

Some of our movie night family favorites include silky chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream, fudgy brownies cut into bite-size squares, or chocolate ice cream scooped into a bowl. There isn’t anything wrong with keeping it simple. Sometimes chocolate chips mixed into buttery salted popcorn is all it takes.

You have options galore when it comes to chocolate desserts, make any of the above or choose something else from the list below!
