S’mores Bars

Psssst, hey, you! You need to make these. Like, now. I almost never say that, but seriously: You do. Stop what you're doing and get yourself into the kitchen. You can thank me later.

Old-Time Chocolate Molasses Chews

For this recipe, squares of chewy chocolate caramel get all dressed up in chocolate. They're chewy and chocolate-y and have a deep, sweet earthiness from a generous amount of molasses.

Mocha Layer Cake with Sour Cream Ganache

One of the reasons that I love this cake is that it looks impressive, but it’s ridiculously easy to make—even for folks who don’t have a lot of experience baking. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool completely before you can fill and frost it.

Frozen Chocolate Mousse

OK, this started with a recipe I spotted in Cook's Country magazine for easy chocolate ice cream. You know I'm a sucker for unusual, short-cut recipes that promise delicious results. I couldn't resist giving it...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

These brownies are dark, fudgy, and shot through with ribbons of smooth peanut butter—and dotted with bits of molten chocolate. This recipe could feed an army. If you have a strong sense of self preservation, cut the recipe in half and make it in a smaller baking dish.

Chocolate Cream Pie

I should admit: I have a special spot in my heart for old-fashioned desserts—especially if it's the kind of thing that you're likely to find in the spinning dessert case at a 1950s-style diner. This pie totally fits the bill.

Chocolate Caramel Tartlettes

Hope you all had a fabulous holiday and new years! The Angry Chef and I spent New Year's Eve nestled in with the good folks from The Salem Insider and Rippin Kitten. The company was outstanding....

Caramel Fudge Bars with Cinnamon Shortbread Crust

These bars are one part candy, one part cookie. For this recipe, cinnamon-laced brown-sugar shortbread is draped in a rich fudge topping that's half chocolate ganache, half dulce de leche.

Chocolate Stout Layer Cake

Be still my little mouse heart: This is the best chocolate cake I've ever made.

Chocolate Caramel Tart

This tart is like a grown-up candy bar, in decadent tart form. The cookie crust is crisp and buttery. The caramel is creamy with just a little tang from the addition of a dollop of craime fraiche. The chocolate ganache is velvety and rich.
