What are some chocolate-based food or drink items in the Boston area that you can't get enough of? Are there any particularly good hot chocolate drinks, mole dishes, pastries, or cakes at specific restaurants, pastry shops, etc., that you really like? [Go here to post a reply.]

Not big into sweets but the Torta Cioccolato from Bel-Ari in the Leather District is spectacular. Rich and dark rather than cloying and sweet.

The hot chocolates at LA Burdick might be the only Boston-area chocolate things I specifically crave.

French Silk pie was a favorite growing up. Christina's Ice Cream in Inman Square has this Mexican chocolate flavor that is pretty amazing. But for the ultimate Boston chocolate experience, you have to try Cafe Fleuri's chocolate buffet.
single origin hot chocolate at LA Burdick and Earthquake cookies at Sofra. Not together. That would be wrong.
