I cannot believe it is December and Christmas is right around the corner! Walter and I got our first big christmas tree this past weekend – in past years we’ve just had a baby tree, but this year we went for the big guy! I love putting up a real tree, the smell of pine needles sends you soaring into the christmas spirit!

I bought us stockings last year, post-christmas on super sale, so after waiting nearly a year, I was more than ready to pull them out and hang them up!

With the holidays and the end of the year approaching quickly I realized I still have not completed all of my 2016 Cooking Goals! With this Flourless Chocolate Cake I’m only checking my 3rd goal out of 5 off my list! I better get to work!

Flourless Chocolate Cake is a chocolate lover’s dream, it’s rich, dense and totally delicious. It’s a perfect cake for the holidays, especially with the appropriate toppings like candy cane ice cream and whipped cream ๐Ÿ™‚

The better the chocolate you use the better your cake will be. I used a mixture of unsweetened and semi-sweet chocolate. Melt the chocolate with butter over a double boiler to keep it from burning so it melts together smoothly.
