My favorite way to enjoy semi-sweet chocolate is in chocolate chip cookies. Or maybe any number of dark chocolate truffles, like Wicked Chocolate's Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt, or their Strawberry Cheesecake.
To make ordinary chocolate chip cookies more holiday festive, add food coloring to the dough before you add the flour. To make these for my daughter this past Christmas, I divided the dough and added green to half, and red to the other, and used my cookie scoop (a small version of an ice cream scoop) to dip into both bowls of dough, then baking as usual. I used liquid food color, but gel would probably work better to get bright colors.
