Vegan Mocha Mousse

Serious Eats Liz Gutman 8 comments

The nuttiness of tofu provides a nice base for the rich chocolatiness and bitter edge of coffee in this mousse. The flavors play nicely together, but definitely don't bother making this if you're not a fan of tofu—there's no mistaking it. More

Chocolate Clay

This chocolate "clay" is great for modeling freehand, pressing into molds, or even as a substitute for rolled fondant. More

Chocolate Bread

This is my twist on a David Lebovitz's recipe. The resulting crumb is somewhat denser and crumblier than ordinary bread, but the taste is really fantastic, and goes well with a hot cup of tea or a cold glass of... More

Chocolate Pudding Snack Packs

What I like about this recipe (aside from its simplicity and delightful flavor and texture) is that it uses egg yolks, which I hate throwing away after making a meringue or something. It can be layered in individual serving cups,... More

Chocolate Chickpea Cake

Serious Eats Liz Gutman 20 comments

This is a very dense, not-too-sweet cake with a nice chocolatey flavor. It's also pretty healthy, packing tons of fiber from the garbanzos and protein from the eggs, and is actually a really nice breakfast sweet. It keeps well in... More

Chocolate Turtle Cookies

The chocolate extract is totally optional, as is the salt garnish, but feel free to mix up the nuts and filling however you like (you'll just have to rename them)! If you do go with caramel, make sure you buy candies that you know are reasonably fresh; if they've been hanging out on the shelf for a while, there's a chance that the filling will end up grainy.

Leon's Favorite Chocolate Cake

This cake is chocolatey but not too sweet, with a a moist, dense crumb. It can be finished with a dusting of powdered sugar, and keeps quite well wrapped tightly in plastic or foil.... More

Rozzy's Banana Nut Bread

For easier slicing, wrap the completely cooled bread in foil and let it sit overnight. This bread also freezes very well, if you're not going to eat it all soon.... More

Simple Chocolate Mousse

Serious Eats Liz Gutman Post a comment

This recipe is from one of Pierre Hermé's books, and is therefore bulletproof. You'll see how specific the directions are, which is incredibly helpful. Feel free to use a hand mixer, or even your own muscle power, to beat the egg whites More

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Serious Eats Liz Gutman 35 comments

Some things just go together—peanut butter and jelly, cheese and crackers, chocolate and mayonnaise. Wait, what? You don't yet know about how awesome chocolate mayonnaise cake is? Today's recipe was actually inspired by a SE Talk thread. I can't say I know its exact origins, but it's certainly nothing new—many recipes refer to it as "World War II" or "Depression-Era" chocolate cake. It's no wonder this recipe has lasted—this chocolate cake is moist, tender and delightful. And really easy to make. More

Rich and Gooey Hot Fudge Sauce

Serious Eats Liz Gutman 8 comments

Making hot fudge sauce is relatively straightforward. You just need cream to keep it flowing, light corn syrup for body and shininess without making it too sweet (that's where the brown sugar comes in), cocoa powder for the rich fudgy taste, and regular chocolate to smooth out the cocoa. The end result is much more interesting than anything you'd buy at the grocery store. More

Serious Chocolate: Easy Chocolate Pie Crust

Serious Eats Melody Kramer 22 comments

[Flickr: jessicafm] I'm one of those people who always bought pie crusts at the store. Why spend all that time on the crust, I thought, when pies were all about the filling? The pie is called a peach pie, after... More

Serious Chocolate: Rice Krispie Spider Treats

Serious Eats Melody Kramer 4 comments

[Flickr: hfb] I'm a big fan of Halloween, in part because it's the one holiday where decorating chocolate treats with fake bugs is socially acceptable. (Just try making gummy worm brownies for Thanksgiving and you'll see what I mean.) This... More
