13 Late Summer Chocolate Recipes & October’s #WeShouldCocoa

13 Late Summer Chocolate Recipes

Well September has vanished in a blur of moving house and location as well as starting a new job. Tin and Thyme has been sadly neglected. However today is the first of a new month and time to get serious again. It’s also the date for the We Should Cocoa round-up and new linky. Here are 13 late summer chocolate recipes to inspire and delight.

If you’d like to join in with next month’s #WeShouldCocoa, scroll down to the bottom of the post and you’ll find the October link-up. If you haven’t joined in before or need a reminder, you can find the guidelines on the We Should Cocoa page.

13 Late Summer Chocolate Recipes

Pick Up Chocolate Brownies

Jenny over at Mummy Mishaps kicks these 13 late summer chocolate recipes off with these pick up chocolate brownies. I’m not sure it’s possible to get more chocolate into a brownie, so it double ticks all of the #WeShouldCocoa boxes.


Box of Chocolates Cake

There’s only one thing better than a box of chocolates and that’s a box of chocolates inside a cake. You’ll find this beautifully executed Box of Chocolates Cake over at Only Crumbs Remain. And the chocolates and jam are homemade too.


Three layered chocolate jelly

If you ever need an elegant dinner party dessert, these three layered chocolate jellies from Searching for Spice might be just the thing. They’re vegetarian friendly so I’d be able to tuck in too – hint hint Corina.


Snickers Cupcakes

If you like peanut butter then these Snickers cupcakes from Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen are for you. Chocolate cupcakes, caramel sauce and peanut buttercream  – wow!


American Midwest Chocolate Cream Pie

This American Midwest chocolate cream pie takes me straight back to children’s book’s I used to read. I always wondered what they were and now I know. Head over to Carline Makes for the recipe.


Nutella Cake

This tower of magnificence is a Nutella cake from The Baking Explorer. I get the feeling she’s a big fan of this particular spread.


Vegan Mayonnaise Chocolate Cake

Have you ever tried a mayonnaise chocolate cake? It’s not as strange as you might think. Johanna over at Green Gourmet Giraffe has made this vegan version and it sounds gorgeous.


Mocha Pear Upside Down Cake

If you’ve never paired coffee and pears, you may want to try this mocha pear upside down cake from the Gluten Free Alchemist. It may seem unusual, but it sounds delicious. It’s gluten-free too of course.


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

I’m not sure why, but for some reason scones speak autumn to me. Right on cue comes Lucy of Baking Queen fame with these autumnal pumpkin chocolate chip scones.


Whisky Truffles with Dark Chocolate and Fresh Cream

My contribution to these 13 late summer chocolate recipes are these rather luscious whisky truffles with dark chocolate and fresh cream.


Chocolate and Caramel Cake

If you’re in need of a good cheer-up, this chocolate and caramel cake from Apply to Face Blog should do it. I reckon it has a fighting chance of working for me anyhow 😀


Hazelnut Millionaires Shortbread

Following on from the Great British Bake Off’s Caramel Week, I would have been surprised not to see at least one Millionaires Shortbread recipe here. I’m not disappointed and this hazelnut millionaire’s shortbread with rum caramel from Recipes Made Easy is up there with the best of them.


Peanut Millionaire's Shortbread

In fact we have two lots. These smart salted peanuts & peanut butter millionaire’s shortbread from Jo’s Kitchen Larder sound equally good. Now I’m stuck as to which one to try first.

      That chocolate box is awfully clever. I don’t think I could ever pull anything like that off.

    I will have one of each please – all look wonderfully decadent! Glad you are still keeping in with WSC despite your busy times as I love seeing all the great chocolate creations – not sure where to start here – scones, cakes, and slices all do it for me!

      Yes, I’m up for trying everything – but then I usually am 😉 WSC is about the only surety in my blogging life at the moment. Thanks for hanging on in there with it. It turned 7 years old last month, but I forgot in all the excitement, so didn’t mention it.

    You’ve moved?! How exciting! I saw in a comment you made that you weren’t in Cornwall, but thought you must be on holiday…..
    Lovely round up as always Choclette. I could quite happily eat all of them x

      Thanks Kate. It’s all very exciting. I didn’t think I’d ever leave Cornwall again as it took me so many years to get back there last time, but you just never know what’s around the corner. I wrote a post “Leaving Liskeard” if you’re interested – /2017/08/leaving-liskeard/

      Those scones look amazing Corina, they are calling to me too. I was rather impressed with your jellies and now itching to give them a go.

    All of these desserts look so delicious and my daughters are HUGE fans of chocolate… so I can use these goodies to bribe them for good grades.

      Hahaha, if only it was that easy Jennifer 😉

  6. Jo / Jo's Kitchen Larder

    Oh wow, you were super busy in September! Hope the move has gone smoothly and best of luck with your new job too! Delicious chocolatey round up again> I got my eye on that lovely Mocha Pear Upside Down Cake 🙂

    • Choclette

      4th October 2017 at 9:35 am

      Thanks Jo. It’s only half a move really as CT and most of my stuff is still down in Cornwall. I’m hoping it won’t be too long until we’re all reunited though.

    These sound great. I love chocolate and am looking for some new recipes to try out with my child.
