Dia de Los Muertos Flourless Chocolate Cake – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I just came back from Mexico and there were Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead décor everywhere.  I love the idea of celebrating our relatives that have passed and spending an evening talking about what they brought to our lives.  I have so many stories to share about my grandparents and friends who are no longer with us and I think this flourless chocolate cake is the perfect dessert to serve after dinner on such a special occasion.

This cake can be made for any celebration, but I think the colorful chocolate candies creating a Dia de los Muertos face makes it even better.  It all begins with melting butter and chocolate together to create a simple batter.  It’s baked in a single layer and then a thick chocolaty glaze is spread over top.  You can stop there, but why?  Get some fun sprinkles, chocolates or other hard candy to make this cake pop with fun.
