This decadent patisserie-style glazed mousse torte is perfect for chocolate lovers to enjoy on a special occasion.
Mini Chocolate Hazelnut Friands
Not only are these tiny French cakes full of nutty flavour, each petit four is treated to an irresistible chocolate ganache glaze.
Fluffy Chocolate Truffle Tart
This gravity-defying dessert will satisfy even the most diehard chocoholic. A chocolate crust is filled with a dark chocolate truffle and topped with a creamy milk chocolate layer.
Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Tart
You’ll love the double dose of chocolate in this light and airy tart. Delicate raspberry mousse rests on top of a rich chocolate coffee cake, which is then covered in bittersweet ganache glaze for an over-the-top indulgent dessert.
Warm Chocolate Orange Tarts
This dish is heavenly, combining the rich taste of chocolate with the fresh flavour of oranges and spiked with a little orange liqueur for a truly decadent combination.
Chocolate Divinity Candy
Divine little bites that are filled with light, whipped chocolate and dusted in deep cocoa powder. It’s just the sinful chocolate dessert you need to satisfy your cocoa cravings.
No-Bake Chocolate Peppermint Patties
A cool, creamy mint filling is sandwiched between two no-bake chocolate cookies which are then drizzled with white chocolate. If you want to make them even more decadent, dunk the sandwiches in melted dark chocolate.
Warm Chocolate Budini with Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream
Make the beloved chocolate and toasted marshmallow flavour combo of s’mores dinner party-worthy with this fabulous budini. Like a molten chocolate cake, the centre is pleasingly melty, but this budini contains no gluten or flour at all, instead relying on eggs to set the batter.
No-Bake Chocolate Pretzel Salami
These fun no-bake treats are made with dark chocolate, pretzel pieces, dried fruit such as cranberries, and chocolate cookie crumbs. When you slice the roll after chilling, each cookie coin resembles a piece of Genoa salami.
Chocolate Hazelnut Napoleon
A mille-feuille, or a thousand layers, is a true pastry lover’s delight: crisp pastry and creamy custard stacked together and finished with a light dusting of icing sugar. For chocolate lovers, Anna Olson’s version uses bittersweet chocolate and hazelnut liqueur.
Deep Dish Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
The only thing better than chocolate and peanut butter cups is a chocolate-peanut butter pie. This retro-chic chilled dessert is a nod to the much loved combination, and will make everyone at your table swoon.
Pretzel-Topped Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts
These cake-like chocolate doughnuts are dense and rich, with their sweetness is balanced by the addition of salted pretzel twists on top.
Tarte au Chocolat
Silky smooth and decadent, there’s something to be said about a perfect chocolate tart — and Anna Olson’s recipe is a force to be reckoned with.
Chocolate Cream Pie
This pie is packed with rich, chocolatey decadence. Top with homemade cream and get ready to indulge.
Molten Centre Chocolate Cake
The most surprising thing about this molten chocolate cake isn’t its gooey, oozing centre — it’s the fact that this recipe happens to be flourless!
Chocolate Dipped Orange Peel
A gloriously simple snack, dessert, or chocolate garnish, these orange peels combine bright colour with rich chocolate flavour.
Black Forest Torte
This combination of chocolate sponge cake, cherries and whipped cream may be a familiar one but in place of the often-dry chocolate Genoise sponge, a chocolate chiffon cake base offers the same airiness, but it is also moist and rich.
Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies
Tender, buttery and speckled with chunky chocolate chips, this tasty shortbread cookie will be the dessert that steals the show at your next festive get-together.
Individual Marble Bundt Cakes with Ganache Glaze

Flourless Black Forest Roulade
This flourless dessert has all the classic flavours of the black forest tortes we know and love: chocolate cake, fresh whipped cream and kirsch-soaked cherries.
Chocolate Covered Caramel Bars
Crunchy, buttery shortbread is topped with caramel and coated in rich, creamy chocolate. Tempering the chocolate beforehand will give the finished chocolate bar a beautiful satin sheen.
Anna Olson’s classic chocolate fudge brownies come complete with a delicious dose of salted pecans.
Chocolate Banana Muffins
A base of mashed banana, chocolate chips and cocoa make for a healthier treat. For an added twist, hazelnut butter is mixed with sugar and vanilla to create a ribbon right through the centre.
Truffle Centred Beignets
Guests will love indulging in these sweet icing sugar-dusted beignets filled with a rich and melty chocolate centre .
Impress anyone with these easy-to-make truffles and watch them disappear off the plate!
Spanish Hot Chocolate
This is a thick-style hot chocolate you’ll want to keep on hand for dunking churros, cookies and fruit in, acting as chocolate fondue rather than a hot cocoa. Skim milk powder cuts down on the fat, simultaneously adding a full bodied texture you’d swear was thanks to whipping cream (it’s not!).
Classic Dark Chocolate Mousse
One taste of this dark chocolate dessert and you won’t be able to stop. Smooth, creamy chocolate mousse flavoured with brandy and espresso, and topped with a garnish of chocolate shavings.
