6 Chocolate Dessert Recipes That Are Definitely Worth The Challenge, So Let's Get Started

Every other Friday, Yossy Arefi from Apt. 2B Baking Co. shares dessert projects that demand a little extra time and effort. Because your weekends should always be sweet.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 Sandwiches

2. Chocolate Babka

3. Mini Black and White Cookies

4. Chocolate Soufflé

5. Chocolate Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream

6. Chocolate Coffee Ice Cream Cake
