These 19 chocolate recipes are proof that chocolate does, indeed, make everything better. Well, okay, maybe it doesn’t make every situation in life better. But it does make us feel better, which in turn makes it a little easier to handle everything else.
Chocolate-Bourbon Banana Bread
This life-changer of a recipe isn't your mom's banana bread. It's better. And we've got no qualms saying that.
If you’ve been hesitant to make chocolate souffle out of fear, worry not. This easy version is guaranteed to reach lofty heights. A no-stress, high-stakes dessert. We show you how.
Easy Chocolate Crepes
French-y but not at all fuss-y, these superbly chocolate-y crepes satiate that certain je ne sais quoi.
Hershey's Chocolate Cake Redux
Certain things in this world inspire lasting love. Like this cake. An old-fashioned American classic for a reason.
Dark Chocolate Waffles
Yep. You've heard of breakfast for dinner. We're up leveling to breakfast as dessert. Not just any dessert. Dark chocolate decadence with crisp edges that's delicious alone or with hot fudge sauce and vanilla ice cream.
Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes
Vegan chocolate cupcakes. So scrumilicious and deep dark chocolatey no one's even going to notice they're vegan. Swear.
These are, quite frankly, as fudgy and rich as the real deal. Despite being flourless. Swear. Make a batch and see if anyone can tell the difference.
Chocolate Pecan Scones
From the Barefoot Contessa herself, these chocolate pecan scones are packed with plenty of bittersweet chocolate and pecan chunks and are, predictably, flaky and tender pastry perfection.
Chocolate Hazelnut Gelato
We're food folks, not number crunchers. But perhaps our most favorite equation ever? Chocolate + hazelnuts = gianduia.
Chocolate Tart with Pine Nuts
We don't know Italian, but we're pretty certain this tart, with its molten filling and brownie crust, translates to "Damn good!"
Basic Chocolate Cake
One of the best darned chocolate cakes we've ever experienced. (Seriously. Would we tease about something as dramatically life-altering as this?!)
Spiced Chocolate Truffles
At last, spiced chocolate truffles made with dark chocolate that taste delectable, are easy to make, and—believe it!—nutrient dense. Our prayers have been answered.
Ultra-Thin Chocolate Chunk Cookies
A theatrical departure from the norm, these diaphanous beauties shatter dramatically as they deliver untold caramelized, bittersweet chocolate goodness.
Toblerone Rice Krispies Treats
A kid classic that’s been gussied up with that candy classic that's essentially chocolate, almond, and nougat with hints of caramel. Guaranteed intrigue.
German Chocolate Cake
Dark chocolate cake stacked high and smothered with gooey caramel and coconut and pecans? Don't mind if we do.
Vegan Chocolate Cake
Yup. Vegan chocolate cake. If you tasted it without knowing, all you'd experience is chocolate through and through. No one will ever know it's vegan...unless you tell them.
David Lebovitz's Best Brownies
"Best brownies" is a bold assertion. Yet these merit exactly that distinction. Shatteringly crisp on top, fudgy in the center, and intensely chocolatey through and through.
Chocolate Bourbon Truffles
Chocolate bourbon truffles. A brilliant and boozy gift for the chocolate lover who has everything.
Chocolate Bundt Cake
An homage to the chocolate cakes of yesteryear but with a contemporary dark chocolate oomph that turns tradition upside-down in the most pleasing possible way. You're welcome.
A no-fail chocolate fudge that's easy to make and foolproof as can be. Although that's not the only reason why we make batch after batch after batch and they each disappear.
