Yep, Raksha Bandhan is just around the corner again. For DUites, it’s a much needed holiday smack in the middle of the uber-hectic first semester (and we celebrate more about that than anything else.) Well, the festival guarantees tons of memories filled with moolah for the sisters, and sweet remuneration for the brothers. *A double bonus, yay!*

So, chocolate addicts that we are, we’ve compiled a list of the 7 most amazing cocoa-packed desserts that anyone from our chocoholic generation will be insanely happy to get. Scroll ahead to make your pick:

1. Chocolate Dream Cake

Where: Krispy Kreme

What We Loved: The fact this doughnut is first filled with an ooey-gooey chocolate sauce, then hand-dipped in chocolate icing, and finally drizzled in the creamiest white chocolate.

#SpoonTip: If you and your sibling manage to reach Krispy Kreme before noon, you get to enjoy one of the ultimate pleasures of life – the smell of freshly baked doughnuts.

2. Chocolate Rakhi

Where: The Chocolate Room

The Chocolate Room is a wonder, whipping up premium sweets in Australia, India and beyond.(Crème-de-montes, strawberry spiders, choctails, torroncinos, and toblerone shakes are just a sampling of the madness you’re served here.)

What We Loved: That out of all their pizzas, this one had the best flavor balance without being overly sweet. The treat is made with a freshly baked pizza base smothered in dark and milk chocolate sauce, grilled bananas and marshmallows.

4. Double Chocolate Decadence

Where: Theo’s

What We Loved: Now, any chocolate cake has the ability to make people happy; the cake lover, the chocoholic, the sweet tooth. Treating someone to cake will never lead you astray.

We chose the DCD for its dense silken texture topped with Theo’s special frosting of dark chocolate mousse, thickly smeared.

5. Chocolate Gateau Tub

Where: Mother Dairy

What We Loved: That this dessert reminded us that Mother Dairy still makes gourmet ice-creams, and awesome-yet-cheap ones at that.

The Chocolate Gateau Tub features a surprise chocolate sauce center filled chocolate ice cream with pieces of chocolate brownie that wonderfully complement the overall flavor profile.

6. Chocolate Blood Bath

Where: Social Offline

What We Loved: Social is known for creating quirky flavor combinations that work surprisingly well, considering their “exotic” mixology.

And this decadent monstrosity has got all the fixings we’ve ever dreamt of: Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Brownie chunks, Chocolate Truffle, Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Ice-Cream, Chocolate Mousse, White and Dark Chocolate sauce!
