World Chocolate Day is a great day. Today, it's your duty as a citizen of the world to eat some chocolate. So make the most of it. Don't just unwrap a chocolate bar, celebrate with one of these stellar summery chocolate recipes:
1. Chocolate Fondue with Fruit and Grilled Pound Cake
A grill works just as well as a stovetop for melting this bourbon-kissed chocolate fondue, served here with fresh apricots and grilled pound cake and pineapple.
2. Espresso-Chocolate Semifreddo
This dessert, which is like the fluffiest, creamiest ice cream pie imaginable, was created by pastry chef, Sherry Yard, for the opening of Spago Beverly Hills in 1997. It's based on a Malakoff torte, which is a traditional Viennese layered cake. "For the warmer climates of California, we changed it to a semifreddo, which is perfect for summer," says Wolfgang Puck.
