    Flourless Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Glaze

    This decadent cake is practically pure, unadulterated chocolate: rich, dense, and truffle-like (and gluten-free, to boot).
  • Recipe

    Chocolate Tres Leches Cake

    It's easy to give the classic Mexican tres leches cake a chocolate twist by substituting cocoa powder for some of the flour. The result is a cool, creamy chocolate treat, a bit like a chocolate icebox cake.

    Chocolate Irish Whiskey Cake

    This recipe reimagines the classic whiskey-spiked Irish coffee as a decadent mocha layer cake filled with coffee-whiskey whipped cream and topped with white and dark chocolate shavings.

    Chocolate Layer Cake with Honey-Ganache Frosting

    The combination of natural and Dutch-processed cocoa powder, coffee, and mild honey gives this cake an incredibly moist texture and an intense, complex, and very grown-up chocolate flavor.
  • Recipe

    Extreme Chocolate Cheesecake

    You can't get more chocolate than this cheesecake: a chocolate-wafer crust, melted dark chocolate in the filling, and chocolate shards scattered over the top.
  • Recipe

    Chocolate-Hazelnut Semifreddo

    Based on the classic pairing of chocolate and hazelnuts, this luscious, creamy frozen dessert gets its hazelnut flavor from Nutella, with melted dark chocolate to temper the sweetness.
  • Recipe

    German Chocolate Bombes

    These showstoppers are a creative spin on a classic dessert. Here, individual ganache-glazed chocolate cake bombes are filled with decadent chocolate mousse and creamy pecan-coconut pudding. And, they're the perfect ending for a dinner party because you can make them ahead.

  • Recipe

    Browned-Butter Banana Cake with Salted Chocolate Ganache

    Toasty browned butter and salted dark chocolate icing transform a simple banana-nut cake into an unforgettable dessert. A few pinches of flaky sea salt on top are a clue to the cake’s secret ingredient.

  • Recipe

    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.
