Show Stopping Chocolate Recipes

No dinner party is complete without a show stopping chocolate dessert as its centrepiece. We’ve teamed up with chefs, authors and influencers from around the world of food and drink to present to you a selection of mouthwatering recipes to try out at home. 

These truly are recipes that are designed to make a statement, from seasonal dishes such as our Chocolate Cherry Tart of Praline Chocolate Yule Log to perennial favourites such as the Very Ethical And Extremely Delicious Chocolate Cake from Vanessa Kimbell and the Ruffle Ganache Topped Chocolate Cake from Dominic Hutchings.

And remember: Craft cooking chocolate tastes better, is easier to work with and is free from additives and preservatives.

We always love to see what you come up with, so when you give them a whirl, remember to tag us @CocoaRunners on Instagram.
