Chocolate is among the very best people-pleasers. Sure, every now and again, you’ll meet folks who don’t like chocolate, but usually, whipping up a batch of chocolate-filled, super sweet desserts for your friends or romantic partner is a treat to taste and share. Give the following recipes a go for a night full of chocolatey sweet delight:
The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake Recipe, from The Stay at Home Chef. Buttermilk and cream cheese take this chocolate cake recipe to the next level. The Stay at Home Chef’s recipe will give you a delicious triple layer cake that’s as good to serve fresh to any guests you have over as it is to refrigerate and save for the week’s desserts.
The Easiest Brownies Ever, from The Kitchn. The title says it all: This brownie recipe is quick, simple, and delicious. Combine the ingredients in a baking pan and toss it in your oven for not even half an hour. When it’s time to pull the pan out of the oven, cut it into nine delightful brownie squares and share them with your friends.
The Worst Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Sugar Spun Run. Sugar Spun Run has titled this recipe “The Worst Chocolate Chip Cookies” because, in its own words, “these chocolate chip cookies will ruin your life.” Yes, they’re that good. The secret? Maple syrup, an ingredient not commonly found in other chocolate chip cookie recipes.
Four Ingredient No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, from Beaming Baker. We’ll admit it: This isn’t the first time we’ve included this recipe in one of our snack or dessert lists. We’re just that obsessed with this recipe that we’re including it again. And it’s really perfect for this list: it makes 16 chocolate peanut butter squares, all without any oven or stovetop use.
Chocolate Milkshakes, from Betty Crocker. If you’d rather drink than eat your chocolate, Betty Crocker’s chocolate milkshake recipe is the best around. All it takes to make this recipe is vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and milk. To take this milkshake formula to the next level, sub chocolate ice cream for vanilla and keep the chocolate syrup.
Chocolate Truffles, from The Food Network. This recipe is a bit more technically advanced than the others we’ve included, but the effort is worth it for this chocolate delicacy. The recipe calls for half a cup of cocoa powder, coconut shreds, and chopped nuts, but it doesn’t specify how much of each you should use to reach the half-cup total volume — the choice is yours!
Easy Chocolate Pudding, from Cookies and Cups. For this recipe, you’ll use commonplace baking ingredients to make a simple but decadent batch of chocolate pudding right on your stovetop. Top this pudding with your favorite whipped cream for a truly diner-style pudding experience.
Ultimate Chocolate Mousse, from Food and Wine. Mousse is delicate and lightweight, but that doesn’t mean making it is a carefree process. Quite the opposite, in fact — this recipe from Food and Wine is quite challenging, but if you’ve ever eaten mousse, you know the effort is worth it. Trust us — your friends will be truly impressed with this one.
