Cakes, cookies, and brownies are great, but some of our favorite chocolate desserts just don’t fit into those categories. Here, you’ll find our collection of the best recipes for classics, such as chocolate puddings, mousses, fondues, bread puddings, and chocolate-dipped fruit. We also have a few new ideas, such as chocolate creme brulee, pavlova, and tiramisu for the more adventurous.
It’s hard to believe that a dessert this elevated is made from such basic ingredients: sugar, egg whites, and vanilla. It is also a lovely study in contrasts: the delicate, crisp exterior; the ephemeral interior; and here, soft, sweet-tart rhubarb and crunchy pistachios. Happy spring.
A pavlova may be a showstopper, but it's also simple to make. Preparing the satiny orange curd and crisp meringue in advance is the secret.Baking a meringue at a low temperature maintains its snowy white color. Leaving it in a turned-off oven overnight helps ensure a completely dry, perfect meringue.
