Chocolate Covered Sun-Dried Tomatoes

We realize this may be a strange, unusual flavor combo, but apparently, tasty nonetheless! A tad chewy, a bit sweet and likely for the tomato-lover only! Coat, chill in the fridge, then devour!

Chocolate and Black Pepper Goat Cheese Truffles

Maybe not too far a stretch, considering cheese often pairs well with chocolate, however, with goat cheese's robust and distinct flavor, we found this to be an interesting pairing of chocolate with cheese. Once blended, the two--topped off with a dash of pepper--complement one another nicely.

Chocolate Covered Broccoli

Broccoli may be a common veggie, but we were surprised to see it coated in creamy milk chocolate!

White Chocolate and Basil

While not your traditional pairing, this combo particularly strikes our fancy. The White Chocolate and Basil Mousse recipe from allaboutyou.com is unexpectedly delicious.

Chocolate Eclair Hotdog

We love hotdogs and we certainly love chocolate, but combined? Be sure to steer clear of the ketchup and mustard when indulging in this unusual hot dog.

Chocolate and Cauliflower

This recipe is perhaps one of our personal favorites. Here, a rich chocolate cake is mixed with cauliflower, which makes for a deliciously soft (and tasty) cake!

From cauliflower to calamari, we count down the most outrageous chocolate combinations.
