Today: It is time to go on a chocolate-based baking spree.

There is no better way to beat the winter blues than a baking project — a chocolate baking project. Even with spring around the corner, the farmers' market is starting to look a little glum, and apples have been our go-to for months now. I barely even remember the taste of fresh stone fruit. Lucky for us, and our Friday night baking, chocolate is forever — seriously, who needs diamonds? So wrap yourself in the comfort of a chocolate-filled batter, bask in the glory of dark chocolate ganache, and give yourself a gold star excuse to stay inside.

Here are six chocolate projects to carry you through to spring:

1. Chocolate and Olive Oil Ice Cream Sandwiches2. Chocolate Babka3. Mini Black and White Cookies4. Chocolate Soufflé5. Chocolate Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream6. Chocolate Coffee Ice Cream Cake
