Do chocolate and Thanksgiving go together?

I'm thinking about the different desserts I'll be making for Thanksgiving this year. I've browsed through tons of recipe collections online and there are lots of chocolate recipes. Usually our spread includes something with pumpkin, something with apple, and something with pears and/or cranberries. I don't think we've ever made a chocolate dessert for Thanksgiving.

Perhaps it's just our family, but I think the reason why is because chocolate just doesn't feel like a fall, harvest ingredient suited for Thanksgiving. What do you all think? Do you serve a chocolate dessert at Thanksgiving or stick with apple and pumpkin treats? If you do, what's your favorite chocolate recipe?
