No fair. I can't just pick one.

Chocolate Mousse
Chocolate souffle
Cheesecake
Tiramisu
Trifle (in a pinch, lol)
Chocolate eclairs
Tartufo
Hot Fudge sundae
Banana Split
Brownies
Strawberry shortcake
Charlotte Russe
Rice Pudding (comfort dessert)

That's why I rarely keep dessert in the house - usually triscuits, oreos and fruit.

I have so many that I like, so I would have to go back to my old standard of chocolate
cake with chocolate frosting and a large glass of iced cold milk. second on my list comes
from my favorite chef`s Paula Dean and her recipe of "not yo mama`s banana pudding"
that is so rich but I love. and my favorite purchased dessert would "Pink Champagne Cake".

single most favorite dessert is Sweet Potato Pie with homemade French Vanilla Ice Cream.

but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Yes you make them with choux paste. but they're best filled with pastry cream, imho... you can make it chocolate flavored, too...

FM, they are easy to do..I make them then when cool cut them in half..I use heavy cream and whip it rather stiff..It holds better that way and my kids like it that way..I sweeten it with powdered sugar instead of reg sugar then there isn't any grittyness..I've never done a pastry cream though..Many feel that is "the thing" to put in them..I've never had any that was home made just the store bought kind, which is much to sweet for me...So give both a try..Believe me if I can do it so can you

try sweetening that whipped cream with some seedless raspberry puree! The flavor is rather subtle but unmistakable! then drizzle some chocolate sauce on the top of the cream puff!

Find your prettiest presentation plate and pile them high in a pyramidal shape, then drizzle the chocolate sauce over them. Your dinner guests will swoon....

My favorite dessert - too many to choose, depending on my mood - right now I could go for a piece of strawberry pie !
