The Best Chocolate Cake Recipes Ever

There are a lot of things that go great with a tall glass of ice cold milk, but we can't think of anything more fitting than pairing it with a big slice of rich chocolate cake. And, since today is National Chocolate Cake Day, we thought we'd put together a blog packed with our favorite recipes for this delectable treat. 

1. Super Decadent Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting

This one is pretty much the picture-perfect cake of our dreams. The secret ingredient here is hot coffee, which really enhances those chocolately flavors you'll get in every bite. And that thick fudge frosting? To die for.


2. 30 Minute Chocolate Cake For Two

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and we all know the best way to anyone's heart is through their stomach. But since baking isn't everyone's strong suit, this microwavable cake recipe that can be ready in 30 minutes and comes out looking (and tasting) like perfection is sure to impress that someone special.


3. The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake Ever

This is one of those comfort-food cake recipes. The kind that mom would make on a rainy Saturday afternoon, and you'd beg her to let you lick the spoon, and then she'd sneak you a couple bites before dinner. There's nothing too fancy about it - even the ingredients list is simple - but it is so moist, and flavorful, and delicious. 


4. Healthier Chocolate Cake

Now, we get a little confused when we see the word "healthy" next to the words "chocolate cake," but this one has us sold. Maybe it's the delicious Greek yogurt, bananas and peanut butter in the ingredients list that make us feel a little better; or the fact that you can whip up this beauty in less than an hour. Either way, this one is definitely on our must-eat-right-now list.


5. Outrageous Chocolate Cookies

Maybe cake isn't really your gig, but you are head-over-heels for anything that's sweet and chocolately and gooey, and can be dunked in a glass of milk. If that's the case, then your go-to should definitely be these chocolate cookies -- made with real butter and loads of chocolate chunks that turn out so perfectly melty. We bet you can't have just one.


6. One Bowl Chocolate Fudge Cake

We hate doing dishes, so the fact that this recipe only requires one bowl to mix everything makes us happy. And it calls for delicious buttermilk and whiskey (for flavor!). Plus, channel your inner kid because this cake gets topped with Lucky Charms marshmallows. Who doesn't love that? (Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!)


7. Chocolate Lover's Cheesecake

You didn't think we could make it through this blog without a cheesecake recipe, did you? Here's one for the record books, folks. Delicious cream cheese, real butter, melted chocolate pieces and heavy cream? Yes, please.
