Top cookies

Top brownies

  • Double Espresso Brownie Bars
    Give your favourite java head a double shot of espresso: a brownie made with espresso and topped with a chocolate-covered espresso bean.
  • Chocolate Fudge Brownies
    Brownies are hard to resist when they're dark, dense and packed with chocolate chips. They also make great party food and are an excellent offering for a bake sale. Try the master recipe, then discover how toasted nuts, toffee bits and dried fruit such as cherries give brownies a whole new meaning.
  • Brownie Truffle Bars
    The extra chocolate layer on top makes these brownies a true treat.

Top desserts
  • Dark and White Chocolate Igloos
    Bittersweet and white chocolate pair in a very rich frozen two-layer mousse created by chef Michael Mandato. In his pastry kitchen, there is a good supply of rounded silicone moulds necessary for the igloo shape. But layering the rich dessert in ramekins is just fine, especially if, instead of turning out the dessert igloo-style, you simply garnish each with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shards.
  • Chocolate Silk Tartlet Trio
    Three tiny tartlets – each just a mouthful – showcase ultrasmooth, ultrarich whipped chocolate ganache, known as “silk.” You'll need to use premium chocolate and have the cream at room temperature. Each flavour makes 8 tartlets – perfect for a serving of 3 each.
  • Chocolate on Chocolate Trifle
    If there were an award for over-the-top desserts, this triple-chocolate treat would take the cake. It's pure heaven on a spoon, with layers of white and dark chocolate custard, fudgy brownies and totally decadent chopped-up chocolate bars.
  • Strawberries in Chocolate Pavlova
    Crisp on the outside yet soft, chewy and marshmallowy on the inside, this chocolate meringue bowl makes a pretty container for the strawberries.
  • Chocolate Raspberry Pistachio Baked Alaska
    Pistachio-studded ice cream, a sorbet core and a dense dark chocolate cake base all smothered with meringue make a show-stopper dessert. And it goes from freezer to oven to table for a truly no-fuss finale.
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Baklava
    This twist on the honey-nut pastry version has the added appeal of milk chocolate in the filling. An offset spatula makes removal from the pan flawless.
