2. “Way Easy” Chocolate Coffee Mousse

We love recipes with a name that begins with way easy. We also love coffee with our chocolate. Serve this one in martini glasses for an elegant end to a romantic dinner for two (plan to have seconds — this recipe makes four servings). Or, dish this mousse up for a post-dinner delight for the whole family!

3. Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie

You’ll have no trouble at all getting the kids to eat their oatmeal with this scrumptious pie from the owners of Brooklyn’s Four & Twenty Blackbirds pie and coffee shop. It’s one of the few chocolate recipes we’ve seen that includes cider vinegar.

4. Chocolate Pasta with Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Sauce, White Chocolate Shavings, and Fresh Berries

Why wait for dessert to get your chocolate fix? Warning: This recipe’s name alone has about a thousand calories. (But we say go ahead and splurge — you can blame us.)
