Since the time of the ancient Aztecs chocolate has been the ultimate comfort food and guilty pleasure. Now we know that chocolate can actually be good for you! AMERICA’S HOME COOKING: CHOCOLATE asked viewers to send their favorite chocolate recipes for cakes, cookies, pies, soufflés, sauces, brownies, fudge, truffles and mousse. What resulted was a double dark chocolate day of delicious cooking, including a Kentucky Derby Pie laced with bourbon, a minty chocolate layer cake, a chocolate bread pudding with moist chunks of pear, a chicken braised in a poblano mole sauce, pistachio and chocolate matzo brittle, and many more fabulous family recipes for brownies, cookies, biscotti and other treats.
