Sometime, just about everybody has a sweet tooth that needs soothing not quelled by ice cream and candies. These monster cravings require something dense, rich and chocolaty. Chocolate cake is almost always the perfect solution for all sweet cravings, and these five establishments are where you can find the best variety of chocolate cake in town.

Decadence. That’s the only word that can come to mind when biting into Simple Elegance’s fudge chocolate cake. Filled with a choice of flavors that helps to enhance the richness of the chocolate, the fudge chocolate cake is a rich trip down flavor lane. Popular flavors to go along with this moist delight include raspberry, bavarian créme, Baileys Irish Cream and amaretto. Known best for its wedding cake designs, there’s no reason why Simple Elegance’s rich fudge chocolate cake can’t be the centerpiece of any and all occasions.

Drago Sisters Bakery provides sweet treats in the form of cheesecakes, brownies, cannolis and cupcakes with a twist, where you also get psychic readings as you enjoy your tasty treat. Small bits of cake find themselves rolled in a buttery cream and dipped into a chocolate shell. One bite of the chocolate raspberry cake truffle and the flavorful mix of moist chocolate cake and tart raspberry will delight the senses. Complementing the tart sweetness of the chocolate raspberry cake truffle is the chocolate orange variety. This citrus delight is a pleasant treat on those warm summer nights.

Chocolate on top of chocolate on top of chocolate; it may sound like a dentist’s worst nightmare. But Chocolate & Spice’s devil’s food cake is a treat for every sweet tooth. A moist dark chocolate cake filled with the bakery’s signature dark chocolate ganache provides a shocking blend of flavors that has to be tasted to be believed. Topped off with Chocolate & Spice’s own chocolate buttercream, this devil’s food cake puts any store-bought concoction to shame. This dense creation is dangerous in the hands of chocoholics worldwide.

While the bakery’s name may imply something that’s been around for quite a while, the chocolate fountain cake is a fresh experience for the new generation of sweet teeth. An unbelievably rich combination of chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream finds itself dipped in a chocolate ganache, creating the most addictive trio of flavors one could concoct. On the outside, this fountain of moist chocolate looks dark and devilish which gives good insight into how it tastes – rich, moist, dense and, above all, chocolatey.Related: Best Cupcakes in Las Vegas

Nothing Bundt Cakes is a popular name in the city of Las Vegas and has found its way into numerous office parties and holiday gatherings. No matter how common the establishment is, its chocolate chocolate chip bundt cake is a surprise with each bite. Chocolate chips tend to have a processed and overly sweet flavor, but such is not the case with this moist slice of heaven. Each bite of this blissful cake will wrack the tastebuds and send them on a quest for more. Topped off by the bakery’s signature cream cheese and butter frosting, the decadent flavors of the  chocolate chocolate chip bundt are almost impossible to believe. The creators of this devilish desert know the addictive nature and have responded by selling them in single-serving bundtlets; it’s just a matter of walking out of the store before buying five bundtlets.Related: Best Bakeries in Las Vegas
