Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cakes
Pudding cake is simple to make, but the results are miraculous--the batter makes its own sauce while it bakes. These cakes are a chocolate combo that tastes even better topped with coffee or vanilla ice cream and strawberries.
Malted Milk Ball Cake
While this anytime cake is still warm, spread it with a frosting that features milk chocolate. The recipe makes two layers, so serve it stacked or freeze a layer for the next time you need a chocolate fix.
Peanut Butter, Jelly, and Brownie Cookies
Fresh-baked fudgy brownies provide the filling for peanut butter cookie sandwiches. A little cherry jam completes the classic flavor combo.
Upside-Down Banana Split Pie with Easy Fudge Sauce
A warm and creamy chocolate custard awaits when you fork down through billows of soft whipped cream, ripe bananas, and a flaky cocoa-powder piecrust.
Chocolate-Raspberry Grillers with Warm Chocolate Gravy
Pan-grilling makes the bread crisp and buttery and melts the semisweet chocolate inside so it can meld with the raspberries. Make this a knife-and-fork dessert by serving it with warm chocolate gravy.
Hot Chocolate Stout Float
Unexpected and delicious, chocolate tastes wonderful with stout, a rich, creamy, dark beer. To enjoy the combination as a float, drizzle vanilla ice cream with a hot homemade fudge and stout sauce, then slowly pour in additional stout and watch the bubbles dance.
Chocolate-Filled Red Velvet Cupcakes
A miniature chocolate truffle is set in the heart of each of these red cupcakes. Just before serving, gently break open the top, spoon in strawberry jam, and let it marry with the melty filling.
