By: Kellie Arevalo

What better excuse to eat chocolate cake than to celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day? On January 27, people across the nation will be. It's time to treat yourself and enjoy a delicious dessert. Here is a list of five places in New Orleans where you can enjoy some of the best chocolate cake. However, you can still enjoy the holiday in the comfort of your own home. You can make a chocolate cake, or even prepare one from a box mix. Grab your forks, friends, and family, because National Chocolate Cake Day is not a holiday that should be celebrated alone.

Chophouse

Chophouse is a highly rated steakhouse in New Orleans. Founded by two Tulane University graduates, Chophouse offers quality meat with an intimate dining ambiance. With so many steak cuts and seafood options to choose from, if you have room after your meal, you have to order the Gigantic Chocolate Cake. This piece of cake is to be shared with the whole table and comes with vanilla ice cream. In between the many layers of chocolate cake are thick layers of chocolate frosting. You will be needing an extra glass of water. 322 Magazine St., 504-522-7902, chophousenola.com

Bittersweet Confections

Bittersweet Confections is famously known for decorating wedding and birthday cakes, but they also have some sweet treats for purchase. If you want to spice up the chocolate cake holiday, purchase one of Bittersweet's chocolate king cakes, which has been awarded "Best King Cake" four years in a row. There is a chocolate king cake filled with chocolate cream cheese and iced with a dark chocolate ganache or the Bittersweet king cake that has a layer of chocolate mousse with dark chocolate truffles on top. Bittersweet's chocolate king cake allows you to celebrate the national holiday and king cake season all in one bite. 725 Magazine St., 504-523-2626, bittersweetconfections.com
