'Chocolate desserts' on Serious Eats

Doberge Cake

New Orleans may be best known around these parts for beignets and King Cake, but when it comes time to celebrate your birthday in the Big Easy, it's the Doberge Cake (that's pronounced DOUGH-bash for the folks at home), a layered cake with lemon and chocolate that steals the show. More

Holiday Hello Dolly Bars

This recipe is based on the classic Hello Dolly/7-Layer Bar/Magic Square recipe which traditionally includes a butter and graham cracker crumb crust topped with sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and nuts. But play around—the form is perfect for customization. More

Candy Bar Salad

If Candy Bar salad sounds like some sort of new fangled concoction, think again! Candy Bar Salad has been kicking around since at least 1926 as this Ladies Home Journal advertorial for Oh Henry! candy bars shows. In this adaptation I've pared it down to the basics: tart Granny Smith apple slices, Snickers pieces, caramel drizzle, and homemade whipped cream—no lettuce leaves, mayo or Cool Whip required! More

Peanut Butter Cup Pie

This pie is every peanut butter and chocolate lover's dream. A crumbly, chocolate cookie crust cradles smooth and dense peanut butter filling, which is covered with a generous layer of dark chocolate ganache. It's an adult version of the candy classic, and big enough to treat lots of friends. More

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

The beauty of this recipe is the simplicity: chips + melted chocolate = gooood. You can customize it to you taste—don't like dark chocolate? Use milk chocolate instead! Use your favorite brand of chocolate or whatever you have on hand. If you love intensely dark chocolate like I do, consider splurging for the good stuff. More
