Yummy Flourless Chocolate Cake

I love everything chocolate -Valentine's Day or any day. Real Simple has a delicious post showcasing 50 Best Chocolate Recipes,one of which is a recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cake. This is intrigues me because  a.) I have never eaten a flourless cake and b.) I have never made a cake without flour before.

Usually I will go for truly decadent recipes like these chocolate-raspberry mini-turnovers I made for Mother's Day last year. But my thighs are telling me change can be a good thing. Plus, my teenage daughter has been on quite the health kick these days and would probably appreciate my effort in making a healthier dessert.


So I figure -  why not give this recipe a try?

I  am bringing my son's third grade class donuts for Valentine's Day (29 decadent donuts.) And let's not forget my kindergartner. His class will be enjoying gooey red cupcakes that I will be buying making from boxes of mix scratch.

Then there are those candies. You know, the ones that the kids have to have to go along with their Valentine cards they pass out to their friends. ( Is it just me, by the way,  or does it seem that every year there is a competition of some kind at school where each kid will try to bring the biggest and the best-est candy to school to give to their classmates? It's like those little boxes of mini heart-shaped candy with the cute little 'be mine' sayings on them just do not cut it anymore.)

 And lest we forget, the big fancy red and pink heart-shaped boxes of chocolate candy boys want to give to their teachers. I will need to buy 3 of those boxes this year.

All that chocolaty goodness in my house. My will power will never last. And my thighs will pay the price. My only hope is to try this 'yummy' flour-less chocolate cake recipe and hope it satisfies my sweet tooth.

These flour-less cakes are good...aren't they?? 

And if that doesn't work, well, one of those heart-shaped boxes of candy for the teachers just might be missing a candy or two.
