No-Bake Chocolate-Nutella 'Cheesecake' Verrines

These cute no-bake chocolate and Nutella cheesecakes are a chocoholic's dream come true. An intense dark chocolate filling is spooned on top of a crumbly Oreo crust and topped with a creamy, rich Nutella filling. They don't really look like a traditional cheesecake, but does that matter? More

Salted Dulce de Leche Brownies

These rich, super fudgy brownies are topped with generous dollops of homemade dulce de leche and a generous sprinkle of sea salt.

Consider yourself warned, because you're gonna want to make these every day. More

Champagne Cake Roll With White Chocolate (White Chocolate Bûche de Noël)

Filled with Champagne buttercream and decorated with gold chocolate shards and sugar pearls, this cake roll is the pinnacle of festivity. Instead of using ordinary Champagne, I make this cake with Marc de Champagne, a pomace brandy made from Champagne grape skins, seeds, and stalks that pairs beautifully with the cake's creamy buttercream filling and sweet white chocolate ganache coating.

Gingerbread Buche de Noel From 'Baking Chez Moi'

Among the plethora of simple, straightforward French desserts that fill the pages of Dorie Greenspan's new Baking Chez Moi, there is a handful of more involved desserts, and those she reimagines in her own way.
