We are ten days into the new year and I’m feeling a little all over the place. On a regular basis I flip back and forth between being extremely excited about things that are happening and completely overwhelmed by all that I have to do. There are some very big plans that are in the works, but I have a lot to do to make everything happen. And while I am depending on some other people to do their parts, most of the effort is my responsibility. The last thing I want to happen is to be so close to something I really want but not quite there because I’ve become a gating item. That just isn’t an option. It’s just slightly emotionally draining.
So in the midst of my mini breakdowns I started bookmarking a few over-the-top chocolate recipes. And since my new recipes are a little slow for the blog at the moment, I figured I should share the chocolate love with all of you. Here are some of the amazing chocolate recipes that I found and others shared with me.

Better-Than-Crack Brownies from Pass the Sushi
