  • Recipe

    Chocolate-Hazelnut Waffles with Frangelico-Brown-Butter Syrup

    Far from innocent breakfast fare, these deep chocolatey waffles are made all the more sophisticated by a seductive nutty brown-butter syrup (once you try it, you'll want to pour it over everything in sight)
  • Recipe

    Warm Chocolate-Stout Brownie Sundaes

    Stout not only gives these brownies a moist texture but also serves as the base for an unusual chocolate sauce. If you can’t find chocolate stout, regular stout is fine.
  • Recipe

    Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate

    The Aztecs, inventors of hot chocolate, commonly added chiles to their brew; this version uses cayenne.
  • Recipe

    Molten Chocolate Cakes with Raspberries

    These cakes, which come together in a single saucepan, will please even the most serious dark-chocolate aficionados. Tawny port, with its fruit and caramel notes, bolsters the flavor of the intense bittersweet chocolate.
  • Recipe

    Milk Chocolate Pudding

    Most puddings contain eggs for added creaminess, but here, creamy milk chocolate makes eggs unnecessary. To be ready in 30 minutes, this pudding is served warm, but you can also chill it if you like.
  • Recipe

    Chocolate Soufflé Cookies

    Chocolatey and moist with a light, crisp exterior, this recipe is an excellent showcase for high-quality chocolate.
  • Recipe

    Toasted Bread with Chocolate

    Bread and chocolate is a popular snack for kids in Spain. Adding a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt, a twist I picked up from celebrity chef José Andrés, is a sophisticated touch.
  • Recipe

    Dark Chocolate Pretzel Clusters

    Chocolate with a salty crunch is all the rage these days, so next time you find yourself with a bag of broken pretzel pieces, turn them into these just-right mouthwatering candy clusters.
  • Recipe

    Bittersweet Chocolate Pots de Crème

    This quick version of a classic French pudding comes together on the stovetop in minutes and then chills during dinner.
  • Recipe

    Warm Cinnamon Crisps with Hot Chocolate

    If you like the Mexican combination of churros y chocolate this recipe is for you. Flour tortillas cut into small rounds and glazed with cinnamon sugar puff up and get caramelized and crispy in the oven.
  • Recipe

    Chocolate Bark with Ginger and Pistachios

    With a cup of coffee or tea, this is a quick and sweet end to dinner.
  • Recipe

    Fast and Easy Nibby Fudge

    Cacao nibs are roasted and lightly crushed cacao beans—in other words, pure chocolate! Their bittersweet, toasty flavor and irresistible crunch is a wonderful contrast to this super-creamy fudge.
