Make your own chocolate dessert to end your dinner party in style. Pick from rich, dark flourless chocolate cake as your dessert centrepiece, or go for mini chocolate macaroons, chocolate fondants oozing with salted caramel or chocolate and orange brioche pudding.
Everyone loves a chocolate dessert. Our pick of recipes can be made ahead, leaving you free to relax and enjoy yourself over dinner. There is a chocolate dessert for all occasions, from chocolate shortbread squares or chocolate and frangelico brownies that can be passed around at an informal dinner to an impressive chocolate tarte au citron, which gives another dessert favourite a chocolate twist.
For a fuss free dessert, make a no bake chocolate cheesecake that can be sliced at the table, easy chocolate and salted caramel canapes or go for a quick chocolate hazelnut milkshake, made with Nutella for a retro treat. For a super quick dessert fix, pour melted white chocolate over frozen berries for a hot-and-cold, textured dessert.
Or if it’s wow factor you want, make a towering chocolate and honeycomb torte, a chocolate and coffee roulade or a chocolate and salted peanut cheesecake, which has a rich salty-sweet flavour that works so well, you'll only need to serve a sliver.
To finish, double chocolate biscuits sandwiched with a rich chocolate ganache would make a delicious accompaniment to coffee. Or for a very special occasion, send everyone home with chocolate truffles that you've made yourself.
