Chocolate Desserts from Around the World

Posted on by Elizabeth Shaw

Here in England we love our chocolate, and adore creating recipes that indulge our sweet tooth. While Chocolate Sponge is a favourite in England, there are many desserts around the world that use chocolate to accentuate different flavours.

ITALY

Italy is known for its pizzas, pastas and gelato, but their favourite way to use chocolate is in Tiramisu. Layers of coffee dipped sponge fingers are sandwiched with an egg, sugar and mascarpone mixture and the dessert is finished with cocoa for the magic touch.

NETHERLANDS

Stroopwafel, which translates literally to syrup waffle, is a waffle filled with a thin layer of caramel syrup. Originally made in the city of Gouda, these delicious desserts can be eaten plain but are even better when dipped in creamy chocolate.

CANADA

The Nanaimo bar, named after the west coast city of Nanaimo, British Columbia, is a rich treat that features two layers of chocolate sandwiching a layer of custard flavoured butter icing. The crumb based bottom layer adds a bit of crunch while the custard melts in your mouth.
