Chocolate lovers will immediately start a grocery list for this deeply chocolatey coffee cake from Cambrea Bakes. It’s so moist, dense, and rich. And with bite after bite, you’re love for it will grow. So yes, you are going to have a second serving. Accept it.
But don’t let the brilliant photography intimidate you. This cake is actually a one-bowl recipe. But it’s the little things that make it so good. Like how Cambrea adds both brewed and ground coffee to intensify the flavor.

No Bake Cream Pie
We know. It’s painful to wait for desserts as good as this no-bake cream pie from The Salt And Sweet kitchen. But such is life. Good things come to those who…you know the rest. Like tiramisu, you dip biscuits (plain cookies) in coffee to form the base, then there’s decadent cream filling. Optionally garnish with crushed roasted hazelnuts.

Mocha Brownie Cheesecake
For Carla, maker of Chocolate Moosey, and most adults the world over, coffee day isn’t a national holiday. It’s every day. Simply put, adulting requires caffeine.
So this cafe-laden confection is a great companion to your cup. It starts with a coffee-infused brownie. Then you top it with a rich and thick layer of cheesecake. Wait, we’re still going. Finally, you top it with coffee whipped cream. Now, that’s how you start the day!

There’s more to these coffee cookies from Gabby of The Cookie Dough Diaries than the name would suggest. So, first, they’re full of authentic espresso so that coffee flavor shows up in each and every bite. But it gets better still. Next, you’ll find decadent and ooey-gooey semi-sweet chocolate chips. How can one resist?

Coffee Mousse In A Chocolate Cup
Coffee mousse served in chocolate cups from Family Around The Table is a delicious light and airy dessert made with marshmallows and whipped cream. It’s a good compromise when your sweet tooth is calling your name, but you don’t want the heaviness of cake or cookies.

Tiramisu With Speculaas
Make this altered version of tiramisu from Maayke of Nutmeg And Vinegar. We all know tiramisu is a wonderful pick-me-up dessert. But Maayke’s interpretation calls for Dutch speculaas cookies instead of ladyfingers which makes for a more flavorful dessert just right for Christmas.

Coffee And Cream Brownies
Talk about decadence! These coffee and cream brownies have a layer of brownie, coffee buttercream, and a fudgy glaze. Wow, just wow! This is the kind of dessert that can turn your haters into your biggest fans. And most of all, it makes us want to get Cooking With Carlee!

Lisa of Cooking With Curls entices us to try this elegant affogato recipe. This simple treat combines ice cream or gelato with espresso and a liqueur of your choice. Some Italian restaurants serve it after pizza. But served in a stemmed glass, it would make a lovely exclamation mark to your romantic dinner by candlelight.

Coffee Jelly is a fascinating creation from Michelle of Cup Of Zest. And while you’ve likely never seen a recipe quite like this, it’s an adaptation of a recipe first published in 1933. But, its roots are even older, going back to 1912 Japan.
As it sounds, you make coffee jelly using coffee and gelatin. It takes just 10 minutes to make and two hours to set. Then, serve it with whipped cream for an oddball dessert no one will see coming.

Crisp Coffee Flavored Cookies Recipe
We like the way Kimberly over at Savvy Mama Lifestyle handles business. You see, the java-loving mom makes a zippy cookie that has instant coffee baked right into it. But before baking them, she rolls them in sugar. Now that’s the shot of life you need to start your day!

Mocha Mug Cake Recipe
Riz of Chocolates And Chai accepts that a mug cake can never stand in for a baked one. But you can still enjoy this simple sweet for what it is—a mouthwatering four-minute coffee and chocolate dessert that satisfies your sweet tooth without dirtying a bunch of dishes. That’s a win any day of the week.

Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake
We love this creative ice cream cake from Sara of Dinner At The Zoo. It has the flavor of tiramisu, but it’s filling. Sandwiched between dense layers of pound cake is a quick no-churn coffee ice cream.
Finally, you top it with a creamy and decadent chocolate ganache. Better still, these cakes are perfect if you’re the planning type, as you can make the ice cream up to a week in advance.

Chocolate Coffee Pots De Creme
French moniker notwithstanding, these chocolate coffee pots de creme from Tiffany of Living Sweet Moments are more accessible than you might think. But first, let’s dive into what they are.
This 3-layer sophisticated chocolate dessert jar starts with lustrous custard. Then you add the coffee custard after the chocolate layer sets, keeping them separate for “for texture dimension and depth of flavor.” The third layer is whipped cream, and Tiffany also provides a quick recipe for that.

Easy Chocolate Coffee Mousse
Mariska of My Chef’s Apron makes a good case for it if you have yet to have or don’t regularly eat mousse. The five-ingredient chocolate and coffee treat is delicate, light, airy, and simply melts away. And best of all, with a reasonable portion, it’s a guilt-free indulgence.

Dalgona Coffee Cake
South Korean Dalgona coffee—a mix of equal parts instant coffee, sugar, and hot water whipped until creamy—became an internet sensation. Then came an explosion of dalgona-inspired treats like this coffee cake from Emily of A Mummy Too.
The base is a chocolate sponge cake, while the frosting is dalgona coffee. How’s that for a new and exciting sweet?

There’s no shortage of original, best, or classic tiramisu recipes. Sure, they’re yummy, but they are not new or exciting. But this mouthwatering “Nutellamisu” recipe from Lee-Ann of Chef Not Required is a different story!
First, the name, an amalgamation of Nutella-the chocolate-hazelnut spread-and tiramisu, is so clever. But the recipe is familiar. You still dip the biscuits in coffee and alternate layers of biscuits and cream. The main difference is the layer of Nutella. And the cream is egg-free.

Mocha Tres Leches Cake
If you visit a food blog named Coffee With Us 3, you’d expect to find a plethora of such recipes. But that isn’t the case. Instead, most of them are something that has nothing to do with coffee.
However, when they do post a coffee recipe like this coffee tres leches cake, it’s so delicious, genius, and yet simple to follow.
Like other tres leches cakes, you’ll find three kinds of milk, but for this one, they also add instant espresso, cream cheese frosting, and chocolate.
Just be sure to plan in advance. It tastes better on day two.
