Chocolate Mousse Pie

True chocolate-lovers know that just because it’s summer, there’s no reason to abandon those chocolate desserts. It is possible to get your chocolate fix even when the mercury is climbing, as long as it’s something cool and creamy (and preferably no-bake), like these confections.

    No-Bake Chocolate Mousse Pie

    This impressive and insanely delicious dessert requires only six ingredients, but that can be your little secret. Italian chocolate-filled sandwich cookies make a crust reminiscent of a Kit Kat bar; you can also use chocolate wafer cookies. For the spiky chocolate garnish shown here, see the video How to Make Chocolate Shards.

    Chocolate-Hazelnut Semifreddo

    Based on the classic pairing of chocolate and hazelnuts, this luscious, creamy frozen dessert gets its hazelnut flavor from Nutella, an Italian hazelnut-cocoa spread available at the supermarket. Be sure to use a dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids to temper the Nutella’s sweetness.

    Dark chocolate and bourbon make for a truly decadent frozen treat. Since the bourbon doesn't get cooked, it's worth splurging on the high-end stuff. Visit our Drinks & Entertaining page for dozens more fun summer cocktail recipes.

    Chocolate, Beer, and Chile Ice Cream with Hot Chocolate Sauce

    Using amber lager in ice cream may sound odd, but it adds lovely malty, caramel notes. Drizzling the ice cream with the Hot Chocolate Sauce gives you a delicious, double dose of chocolate and chile.
