What baked treats would you put in a chocoholic gift basket? I was thinking a triple layer 6inch chocolate cake with rich chocolate ganache coverd in fondant,two or more jumbo chocolate chip cookies,three triple chocolate fudge brownies and a generous slice of chocolate cheese cake. icon_rolleyes.gif

Any Ideas?

chocolate covered toffee, chocolate dipped oreos (decorated), there is a chocolate truffle cookie that is INCREDIBLE on allrecipes. It is a cookie on the outside but the inside stays soft, the secret is to underbake. Hoping this link goes through..

chocolate crunch brownies made with pb and rice crispies with a layer of marshmallow fluff; mini choc cupcakes with rasberry filling, pb, or carmel or orange mousse (make with bettercream); got to add some candy: choc covered strawberries on top; chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered oreos, sandwich Ritz crackers with pb and dip in chocolate (yummo); chocolate dipped dried fruits (apricots, kiwis (do in white for a nice contrast), dried strawberries if you don't use fresh, any kind of fruit; death by chocolate cupcakes; I'm hungry now. icon_cry.gif

Also...oreo cream balls. It's crushed oreos and cream cheese rolled into balls and dipped in chocolate. TO DIE FOR!

There is a very yummy list building already (and I'm off chocolate for Lent but really want some now!!) but I would go with chocolate truffles too.
Your cake sounds delicious but the fondant wouldn't detract from some of the chocolateyness would it? Personally I'd probably leave it with just the ganache and maybe decorate it with white choc strawberries.

thanks for all your input guys, I was of the PC for the past few weeks. I love all the suggestions made. especially the chocolate coverd cookies.. mmmmmmmmm.. I definitely have to try that one. I also like the idea of not covering the cake in fondant.
