These brownies would be phenomenal if chocolate was the actual centerpiece. But contrary to its fudgy exterior, the real star here is actually mint – a handful of peppermint-flavored Hint Mints, like the kind you eat after dinner. Get our recipe.

This cake recipe was originally published on the Hershey’s Cocoa box. We’ve updated the recipe by using white whole wheat (or pastry) flour, a non-dairy milk substitute, and creating the wow factor with three shades and flavors of glaze. We start with a traditional vanilla glaze, turn it into a coffee glaze, and finally add cocoa powder to achieve the delicious dark chocolate glaze. It's glaze-tastic! Get our recipe.

Fermented garlic turns black, and has an earthy, sweet and savory taste that adds just a hint of depth to this fabulous chocolate cake. So go ahead and invite your foodie friends over for dessert – chances are they’ll never guess what’s in it, but they’ll definitely ask for seconds. Get our recipe.
