    • Mocha Truffles

      For these sophisticated truffles, slip a spoonful of coffee liqueur into melted dark chocolate before chilling. The bite-size mocha dessert gets a pretty coating of white chocolate. If you like, add a sprinkling of coffee crystals for a finishing touch.

    • Mocha-Cream Shake

      Spike a ho-hum vanilla shake with chocolate syrup and strong brewed coffee for a chilly chocolate dessert. The frosty treat takes just 10 minutes to prepare and gets an extra dose of sweetness from grated chocolate.

    • Almond-Mocha Cake

      Espresso and cocoa powders form the bottom layer of this toothsome chocolate dessert, while amaretto and almond extract flavor the flaky white cake. Homemade cappuccino whipped cream provides a final hint of mocha.

    • Mocha-Orange Bark

      Kick up classic chocolate bark with chopped coffee beans and tart candied orange peel. The mocha dessert recipe makes a pretty holiday food gift or simple party centerpiece.

    • Triple-Chocolate Tiramisu

      Three times the chocolate makes this traditional Italian dessert better than ever. Chopped chocolate-covered coffee beans and espresso powder complete the mocha masterpiece.

    • Mocha Fudge

      Fudge fans will love this subtle coffee twist on the favorite chocolate dessert. Top each treat with an espresso bean using piped chocolate frosting.

    • Cappuccino Cheesecake

      Three layers is better than one when it comes to this chocolate dessert recipe. A dreamy ganache-and-cheesecake filling laced with coffee liqueur, dark rum, and coffee powder tops a crisp chocolate cookie crust. On top of it all sits sweet sour cream icing.

    • Cappuccino Love Bites

      For a super-easy garnish to this chocolate dessert, press a striped chocolate candy into each coffee-flavor cookie while it's still warm. After the chocolate softens, you can swirl it with a knife.
