Are you the kind of person who loves dessert… just as long as it’s rich, dark, smooth, decadent and delicious chocolate?  This class will more than satisfy the cravings of any chocoholic.  Hot Stove Sous Chef Lexi Ochoa has been browsing through some of her favorite dessert cookbooks- The Dahlia Bakery CookbookSweet (by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh) and BraveTart (by Stella Parks)- and she’s chosen her favorites for this class. As Lexi demos, you’ll enjoy a substantial taste of each dessert and you’ll get to roll up your sleeves and make the Dahlia Bakery Chocolate Truffle Cookie hands-on!

What You’ll Learn:


  • Silk Chocolate Cream Pie from Dahlia Bakery Cookbook – lush, dark, and silky smooth, this pie is like the best chocolate pudding you ever tasted!
  • Chocolate and Peanut Butter S’mores from Sweet – this is Yotam and Helen’s take on a childhood classic complete with homemade marshmallows
  • Tahini & Halva Brownies from Sweet – the perfect balance of cakey and gooey plus the magical combo of tahini and chocolate
  • Red (Wine) Velvet Cake from BraveTart – red wine and raw cocoa give this cake a mellow burgundy hue and rich cocoa flavor with a velvety crumb- plus cream cheese frosting!


  • Chocolate Truffle Cookie from Dahlia Bakery Cookbook – packed with bittersweet chocolate, cocoa and chocolate chips, super chocolatey and soft with a crackled top
