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.
Sheet cakes, long a staple of bake sales and potlucks, are easy to make and even easier to transport. Be sure to let the cake cool completely before you frost it. Once frosted, the cake can be covered with plastic wrap and kept at room temperature up to three days.
It's our new go-to special-occasion cake: a tall, tender beauty that's sophisticated yet easy to make. What saves the lush milk chocolate frosting from being cloying is the addition of tangy sour cream.
You can’t go wrong when luscious chocolate is matched with caramel, nuts, fruit, whipped cream, custard fillings, or flaky pie crust. Browse our collection of the best pie and tart recipes featuring chocolate in the fillings, crusts, toppings, or throughout.
