10 Desserts Made of Chocolate For You to Indulge In on National Dessert Day

It’s that time of the year again when you get a free license to devour chocolates, minus the guilt. It’s National Dessert Day after all, and what’s better than chocolatey desserts to celebrate the day?

The festive season is here, and with it comes the mithais, cakes, and chocolates! While mithai takes precedence here, we would like to nudge you towards the chocolate confections just begging to be eaten.

Chocolate cakes, brownies, pudding, lava cake, and eclairs—there are so many options available, that too just a food app and bakery away! Does your favorite dessert make it to this list? Let’s find out!

1. Brownie

Baked to perfection, the brownie is a classic hit with the crowd. You cannot convince us otherwise, for it pairs harmoniously with vanilla ice cream and has made it to the dessert section in most restaurants. With different ways to make these bite-sized cakes, brownies continue to be a crowd-pleaser.

2. Chocolate Lava Cake

A certain pizza company might have contributed to its massive popularity in India; and why not? The gooey center is what makes this warm French dessert a delight to eat. Eating a chocolate lava cake is an experience—the first bite breaks through the crisp crust to reveal the lava-like chocolate interior. As it mixes with the cool whipped cream or ice cream (recommended), each spoonful offers a new balance of hot and cold, soft and solid.

3. Chocolate Mousse

This fluffy dessert is a classic delight that literally melts in your tongue. Its light and airy texture is achieved by slowly melting rich chocolate and whipped cream into soft peaks. The classic mousse, thus, has a subtle chocolate flavor that lingers after you eat it. Typically, mousse is topped with shaved chocolate curls or fresh berries. A single bite of this heavenly dessert is enough to transport your senses straight to chocolate heaven. The mousse's silky smoothness coats the mouth, awakening taste buds with its nuanced cocoa notes.

4. Tiramisu

Technically, Tiramisu does not use chocolate, but it does have a sprinkling of cocoa powder on top. If you are not too fond of a rich chocolate flavor that cloys the tongue, you will like this coffee-based Italian dessert. Layers of espresso-soaked ladyfingers alternate with a light and airy mascarpone cream. The cream is blended to perfection, with a smooth texture that goes down seamlessly.

5. Ganache Cake

How much chocolate is too much chocolate? If there was a ceiling, gananche would easily shatter it. And why not? A rich layer of gooey chocolate rolling down a moist, layered cake—what's not to love? The darker the chocolate, the better the taste, and dark chocolate is actually good for you and your heart. Each bite delivers some moist cake wrapped in a chocolatey coating that is hard to resist.

6. Chocolate Pudding

Denser than mousse, chocolate pudding is a mouthful of sweetness that is meant to be savored. While mousses are for a more refined palate, this one appeals across age groups because of its smooth, creamy texture that has a silky feel to it. The chocolate tastes rich without being too sweet. It coats your tongue, being dense, but even then, it melts in your mouth and will bring a smile to your face with every spoonful. Chocolate pudding is a classic comfort food that can lift your mood on any bad day.

7. Black Forest Cake

Technically, the Indian version is not the original black forest, so it’s hardly surprising that not every baker gets it right. But the ones that do have managed to artistically master the soaked sponge cake layered with whipped cream and cherries. More whipped cream is featured on the crown, with cherries and chocolate shavings as the garnish. A slice of black forest cake does make for a delight for the senses.

8. Nut Clusters

Crudely put, this is chikki, but instead of caramelized sugar, it is chocolate that acts as the binding agent. Made from an assortment of nuts, they are first roasted to bring out their flavor and then combined with chocolate. The clusters come in various sizes, from small bite-sized pieces to larger chunks. They have a delightful crunchy texture while being sweet at the same time because of the chocolate.

9. Eclairs

The long, phallic-like shells of eclairs have an air of sophistication about them. On the outside, they exhibit a golden-brown and crisp shell that hints at the goodness within. When bitten into, the shell remains light and airy, while enveloping the mouth with a smooth and rich filling. Common varieties include vanilla, chocolate, or coffee. For extra indulgence, eclairs are often dressed up with glossy or piped icing on top.

10. Chocolate Truffles

A smooth, rich ganache forms the center of the chocolate truffles. Bite into one and feel the ganache give way slowly, releasing its chocolate flavor onto your tongue. Savor each morsel, letting the chocolate linger on your taste buds. The texture is heavenly— creamy yet firm, never too soft or too hard. Each truffle is a work of art, a chocolate sculpture small enough to consume in just a few bites. One is never enough.
