Get Your Cake Fix With These Recipes

Did somebody say cake? We're sharing 5 amazing recipes for chocolate cake that range from traditional to unexpected and fun twists on a classic. From chocolate fudge frosting to mint chocolate cake cookies, we've got you covered any way you choose to celebrate!

1. Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake

This fudge-tastic twist on a classic chocolate cake from Sweetapolita has our hearts a-flutter. The twist? It’s a fudge layer cake. Not just chocolate. It’s chocolate FUDGE. So you know about as much chocolate-y goodness as you can pack into one cake. It doesn’t over-do it on the extras and lets the chocolate speak for itself.

2. Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

These adorable little cupcakes from Hershey’s Recipes are perfectly portioned to handle the extremely decadent “especially dark” (Their words. We’re in.) chocolate cake and frosting recipe. This recipe is rich, moist, and unapologetically CHOCOLATE-Y.

3. Gluten Free Chocolate Cake with Berries 

Who says vegans can’t enjoy a delicious creamy cake? Minimalist Baker has the perfect answer for our vegan friends! This is a delicious and light recipe that is also packed with flavour. Plus, how pretty are those berries?! Oh, and did we mention this recipe is gluten free too? See? Something for everyone!

4. Cake Mix Mint Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches 

Move over, Girl Scouts, there’s another mint chocolate cookie in town! This recipe from Food Network Kitchen uses chocolate cake mix in a new way to make these fluffy, cake-y cookies. Add a sweet mint filling for an out-of-this-world taste bud party that gives Thin Mints a serious run for their money.

5. Gluten Free Lava Cake 

Last but not least, we love this flour-less (and consequently gluten-free!) chocolate lava cake recipe from Flippin’ Delicious. An ooey, gooey, chocolate-y dream completed oh-so-perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and fresh raspberries. Sometimes, ya can’t beat a classic!
