Let this year be the one when you will not lustily dig into your kids' plastic pumpkin buckets, foraging for bite-size chocolate bars. No, their sweets will be safe, because you'll be enjoying other treats. These delectable desserts are inspired by all the Halloween classics: From a rich chocolate cake with crisped-rice filling to malted-milk cremes brulees, these certainly aren't for handing out to the whole neighborhood.
Want to try something that tastes like a million bucks? Take a bite of this chocolate cake, a rich riff on the 100 Grand bar. As with the candy, the best part of this cake is the pop of the crisped-rice cereal against the creamy caramel filling.
For many of us, it doesn't get cooler than York Peppermint Patties. They were the jumping-off point for these chocolate profiteroles. Chilly mint cream fills the puffs, the tops of which are covered with warm chocolate sauce. The bracing peppermint plays up the chocolate flavor.
