It's hard to pick just one, but do you have a favorite recipe for something chocolate?

I have a chocolate mousse cake recipe that I love!

Ingredients for Chocolate Mousse Cake:
7 oz. semisweet chocolate
1 cube sweet butter
7 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions for Chocolate Mousse Cake:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Melt chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
3. Beat eggs yolks and 3/4 cup of the sugar in a large bowl for 5 minutes or until fluffy.
4. Stir melted chocolate mixture into the large bowl. Add vanilla.
5. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until you can create stiff peaks.
6. Gradually stir in 1/4 cup of sugar into the egg white mixture. Fold into the chocolate mixture.
7. Pour 3/4 of the cake batter into a 9 x 3 inch spring foam pan.
8. Store the remaining cake batter in the refrigerator until needed later.
9. Bake cake for 35 minutes and let it cool. The middle of the cake will drop. This is normal.
10. Remove the outside ring of the spring foam pan. Slide cake onto a serving plate.
11. Spoon the refrigerated cake batter on top of the cake. Refrigerate for an hour; prepare the frosting during this time.

Ingredients for Frosting:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 small bar milk chocolate
raspberries for garnish (if desired)

Instructions for Frosting:
1. Beat heavy whipping cream in a small bowl until soft peaks form.
2. Gradually stir in powdered sugar and vanilla.
3. Beat until stiff peaks form.
4. Spread frosting over the cake.
5. Use a peeler to make chocolate curls with the chocolate bar and sprinkle these curls over the frosting.
6. Garnish with raspberries if desired.
