Chocolate mousse (without raw eggs) for the 'better than sex cupcakes' Nigella Lawson – Instant Chocolate Mousse from Nigella Express @ Not Quite Nigella (Chocolate Mousse)

There is very little that needs to be said about a chocolate mousse cake. This one lives up to its name. It is gloriously intense. But the whisked egg whites ensure that it has a balancing lightness. A slice of it, with a smattering of fresh raspberries and a dollop of cream, or better still, sour cream, is the perfect finale. (Photo: Jim Wilson/The New York Times)

You can’t beat a pavlova recipe, especially a crisp-chewy meringue base, with nuggets of chocolate. The meringue provides an enticing layer beneath the cream and crimson raspberries.

Chestnut Chocolate Pots: I'm almost embarrassed by how easy these are.  It's true that you do need a processor, though you could just chop well and whisk using a lot of elbow grease.      As an experiment, I also tried the chestnut pots as chestnut chocolate mousses: the mousses were more work and not as good; this - lazy - way provides a much more meltingly luscious texture.

CHOCOLATE FRUIT CAKE This is the perfect cut-and-come again cake for any time of the year. It lasts for ages, but has the squidgy fabulousness of something so much less serviceable-sounding. I know there are a lot of ingredients listed, but you don’t have to do much more than bung them in a pan and stir, and even then only lightly.

Nigella's white chocolate cheesecake is as easy as can be - no baking, and not too sweet.

I first came across a version of this voluptuously soft, rich chocolate mousse at Morito, one of my favourite places to eat in London. Then – as these things tend to happen – I started finding it everywhere. The olive oil doesn’t just bring its resonant flavour to the mousse, it creates its smooth, soft texture. Go for a smooth but still spicy rather than raspingly peppery extra-virgin olive oil, and use the absolute best quality you can.

Chocolate salame does have a certain charm, especially when dusted with icing sugar and tied like a proper salame with string.
