Chocolate desserts for Thanksgiving?
To me, Thanksgiving desserts are about pumpkin and seasonal fruits. To my mother-in-law, "dessert" means chocolate (and maybe nutty). This year, my goal is to make my mother-in-law happy. Ideas for appropriate chocolate desserts for Thanksgiving?

You can also never go wrong with Ina Garten's chocolate pudding tart from How Easy Is That?
I've made this for Thanksgiving before and it fit well with the other desserts, especially with the gingersnap crust.
Have you thought about asking her what her dream dessert might be? You know we could all help you find the right recipe if she would come up with a dessert wish.
Chocolate desserts we have done..Thomas Kellers brownies. We served them with whipped cream or ice cream. Chocolate mousse torte. Basically, a chocolate mousse with an oreo crust made in a springform pan. Either of these could be topped with candied or plain nuts. We're not huge nut fans, but pistachios were fun on both desserts.
