Dessert recipes to die for?

You know what they are. Like fresh Krispy Kreme donuts (and here I reveal a bias), they are not necessarily elegant (or inelegant). They are not necessarily artistic or good-looking. They are not necessarily sophisticated or trendy.

What they are is ecstatic: desserts that make your heart dance and your blood pound, desserts that crash into you with the fury and joy of a Beethoven symphony, and for a moment make you believe (or confirm your belief!) that life is worth living. It could be that astonishing slice of chocolate cake, or that unbelievable scoop of fresh ice cream. It might be the sheer sinful beauty of a caramel dessert or a slice of pie so divine an angel might have made it...

What are the desserts you would die for?
