Jestei's chili has chocolate as a background note: http://food52.com/recipes...
boulangere and I were on the same page with this one:

And this is really easy and satisfies that spicy chocolate craving:

I can vouch for the spicy pots de creme. I reviewed them for the contest and shared them with the neighbors - everyone loved them.

Cincinnati Chili contains cocoa powder, as well as some unusual spices for chili (cinnamon, clove, etc.). It's really quite nice, but I wouldn't call it a dish for a chocaholic.
These Spiced Cocoa Nib Chocolate Cakes are simply amazing, though: http://www.poiresauchocolat.net/2012/03/spiced-cocoa-nib-chocolate-cakes.html

Here's a bit of a twist on pan au chocolate. It's sweet/savory: http://greaterdc.wholefoodsmarketcooking.com/recipes/13031_chocolate_dinner_rolls_with_pear_and_rosemary

I make a chocolate custard tart with chocolate crust that is pretty satisfying to chocolate lovers and if it is chilled, then the filling is more like a truffel than a custard. Easy to make as well.

I think Dorrie Greenspan has a cookie that is supposed to be the bomb, but I haven't tried it yet. IT is a chocolate salbe also called World Peace cookie, you should be able to find via google.
