13 chocolate-on-chocolate recipes for when just a little won’t do

Chocolate sponge with chocolate custard

Chocolate cake and custard takes us right back to school days, and this version is the real deal. If you could taste nostalgia, we think it would be a little something like this.

Chocolate sponge

Warm double chocolate cookies and malted vanilla cream

Ready in just over 30 minutes, these melt-in-the-mouth cookies are comfort on a plate. The malted vanilla cream is the perfect accompaniment.

Chocolate mousse and passion fruit tart

Silky ganache, rich mousse and an Oreo case. This tart contains vitamin C in the form of passionfruit, but don’t worry, it’s all about the chocolate, really.

Malted chocolate cake topped with Maltesers

Bring smiles to faces with Mary Berry’s chocolate cake recipe. It features a malted chocolate icing and is topped with Maltesers, for that satisfying crunch!

Double baked chocolate meringue brownie

A rich, marshmallow chocolate centre is complemented by a crunchy chocolate meringue topping in this incredible dessert by Eric Lanlard.

Triple chocolate layer cake

This cake isn’t messing around. We’re talking three layers of chocolate and soured cream sponge, sandwiched with chocolate buttercream and coated in chocolate mousse icing. That enough for you?

Chocolate meringues with praline caramel sauce

Chocolate and brown sugar meringues are lifted to new heights when topped with a sauce made from chocolate, hazelnut, praline and caramel. Guests will gawp.

Triple chocolate chip brownies

For when double chocolate isn’t enough – dark, milk and white chocolate come together in this triple choc brownie recipe.

Chocolate cheesecake

Cream cheese and chocolate might sound weird but it’s an epic combination – tart and sweet in all the right places. This chocolate cheesecake with a three-ingredient chocolate glaze is the way to do it.

Three chocolate and cardamon cake

Chetna Makan brings us this triple chocolate creation. White chocolate and dark chocolate ganache fill the chocolate pastry, with the tart brought alive by the warm addition of cardamon and the crunch of hazelnuts.

Double chocolate macarons

Classic French macarons become even more rich and decadent in this recipe. They’re a treat with your afternoon tea, or make a sophisticated dessert.

Triple chocolate cookies

The quintessential chocolate-chip cookie gets dressed up to the nines. Why have one type of chocolate when you can have three? The smell that will fill your kitchen as you bake these is almost as good as they taste.

Triple chocolate verrines

Layers of milk, dark and white chocolate mousse prove that good things come in threes. They are an impressive summery chocolate dessert.
