Chocolate Challenge

Deenso | Jun 17, 200510:15 PM

I'm a good cook, but not much of a baker. With very few exceptions, my idea of a great dessert is something that requires minimal effort on my part, beyond washing and cutting up some fruit or, when push comes to shove, using a cake mix. However, for reasons too silly to explain, I *have* to come up with something using a specific ingredient: a 4-ounce bar of Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Bittersweet Chocolate. It would be nice if it didn't have any nuts in it, but peanuts would be acceptable. I'm at a loss. The only thing I can come up with is individual molten chocolate cakes. I've succeeded at this one using Valhrona bittersweet chocolate before. I don't know if there's much difference between the brands. Anybody have an opinion or suggestion for this pastry-challenged soul? By the way, I have no problem using ready-made pie dough or one of those pre-made crusts, if that's something that might come into play. The only requirement is the above-mentioned bittersweet chocolate, but I don't have to use the whole bar if I don't want to. HELP!?
