Our favorite decadent chocolate recipes, including our devilishly good Heaven and Hell Cake, truffles, and souffle.
Chocolate Truffle Cake
This cake uses chocolate four ways: ganache (chocolate cream frosting), chocolate cake layers, shavings, and cocoa.
Chocolate Caramel Tart
Dark Dutch-process cocoa powder makes for a more flavorful, cookie-like crust, serving as the perfect base for a layer of rich caramel topped with decadent ganache.
Heaven and Hell Cake
Dallas chef Stephan Pyles’s rich, multilayered dessert of angel food and devil’s food cake, peanut butter mousse, and milk chocolate ganache should be frozen before icing is added and refrigerated before it’s sliced. See this Recipe André Baranowski
Alice Medrich’s Chocolate Pudding
Don’t get fooled by the simplicity of a chocolate pudding. This rich, velvety dessert, flavored with bittersweet chocolate and rum, is a real crowd pleaser.
Sour Chocolate Cake
This cinnamony chocolate cake was a staple at the now-closed Half-a-Hill Tavern in Greene County, Missouri, in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. It gets a pleasing tang from vinegar, and a moist, light crumb thanks to shortening in the batter. Get the recipe for Sour Chocolate Cake »
