At Enlightened, we love desserts of all types, but you have to admit that there’s something special about chocolate. “There is no doubt that chocolate beats kissing hands down when it comes to producing a long-lasting body and brain buzz,” says neuropsychologist Dr. David Lewis. (When’s the last time you heard something like that about vanilla?) For all you chocolate lovers out there, here’s the ultimate countdown of Enlightened’s 5 chocolatiest desserts.
We’re diving straight into chocolatey goodness with an ice cream bar dipped head to toe in chocolate. Smooth caramel ice cream, the crunch of chopped peanuts, and a thick shell of dark chocolate make Caramel Dark Chocolate Peanut bars a must-have for any chocolate lover.
“So creamy, and the chocolate peanut coating is crunchy,” says reviewer Jill C. “I feel like I’m eating an old-fashioned bar from my childhood!” If your ice cream truck go-to was a chocolate-dipped bar, this is one flavor you definitely shouldn’t sleep on.
Show of hands: Who’s shared an ice cream pint and gotten into a jousting match with the spoons over an especially delicious-looking chunk? Fudge Brownie Dough Bites do the digging for you: rich, fudgy morsels of brownie ready for snacking straight out of the freezer.
Fudge Brownie Dough Bites may be plenty chocolatey on their own, but we’d also never say no to sprinkling them on a bowl of Chocolate Peanut Butter. And for a total chocolate overload, don’t forget to top things off with the next item on this list.
We’ve seen chocolate you can scoop and chocolate you can snack on. What about chocolate you can pour? Thick, rich, and indulgent, this sugar-free chocolate syrup is perfect for drizzling on everything: a bowl of ice cream, fresh fruit, keto pancakes, or your favorite coffee drink. (And if you’re tempted to try a swig straight from the bottle, don’t worry… we’ll look the other way.)
Believe it or not, we still haven’t reached the #1 chocolatiest Enlightened dessert. We’re headed back into the ice cream aisle next with a pint that’s a massive fan favorite.
This isn’t just milk chocolate ice cream stuffed with chunks of chewy fudge brownie, soft chocolate chip cookie dough, and chocolate chips. This is milk chocolate ice cream stuffed with chunks of chewy fudge brownie, soft chocolate chip cookie dough, and chocolate chips that has only 400 calories per pint.
“This stuff slaps,” says reviewer Evan T. “I would eat 500 of these if I could,” says reviewer Nova. Safe to say that Brownies & Cookie Dough has a loyal following.
We’re approaching maximum chocolatiness, but one new contender goes beyond even Brownies & Cookie Dough in the chocolate department.
We’ve scaled the chocolate mountain, folks. New Triple Chocolate Brownie Dough, created in collaboration with Delish, is like the ultra-chocolatey twin of our first Delish collab, P.B. Cookie & Brownie Dough: rich chocolatey ice cream absolutely loaded with brownie bites, chocolate chips, and a fudge swirl. For those keeping score, that’s four forms of chocolate in every pint.
