This article will have you looking at flooring options differently since the choices that appear below have colors and textures that resemble some of the most delectable and delicious desserts you can imagine.
Chocolate Malt Engineered Hardwood
How many times have you heard people lament that they need something with chocolate to satisfy their sweet tooth? Who says you have to eat your dessert? Why not combine the two and consider enjoying a malt?
Found in the Jasper Handscraped Aspen Engineered Collection, the Chocolate Malt Engineered Hardwood uses aspen wood in 5-inch planks. However, this flooring option works best in an area that doesn’t receive heavy traffic.
These long-lasting floors feature 10 coats of finish alongside a seven-ply eucalyptus core construction. Its tongue-and-groove locking system offers seamless installation. The aspen floors come with a 25-year finish warranty as well as a lifetime structural warranty.
Chocolate Nature Collection
Found in the Mazama Hardwood Jatoba Nature Collection, the Chocolate Nature Collection has a deep chocolate color, reminiscent of a sumptuous brownie or chocolate pie. Constructed of hard and durable Brazilian cherry wood, also known as Jatoba, this exotic hardwood flooring option provides you with a rich color. For additional peace of mind, if you use these floors for residential purposes, the floors come with a 25-year finish warranty and lifetime structural warranty.
The planks have interlocking grain patterns alongside a medium texture to complement almost any space. The micro-bevel edges, also referred to as kissed edges, give you a more finished look. This type of edging helps if you lay flooring on surfaces that have small imperfections. To help further with installation, these planks can be installed using nails.
Dark Chocolate Engineered Hardwood
Part of the Jasper Engineered Handscraped Distressed Collection, the Dark Chocolate Engineered Hardwood floors have a deep and rich dark chocolate stain that resembles a delectable dark chocolate dessert. Its farmhouse-inspired rustic appearance gives plenty of character to your space, and its versatility and innovation make it a smart choice for almost any part of your house, even your basement. The tongue-and-groove locking edges make for simple installation since you can use glue, nails, floats, or staples to secure them.
Constructed of maple, the hardwood floors have tight graining patterns alongside a uniform texture. This construction lets you easily sand the floors to give them a stunning finish. This type of flooring is also a popular option due to its affordable and ultra-durable nature. These satin-finish floors also feature an enhanced surface protection as well as seven coats of aluminum oxide. The floors come with a lifetime structural and 25-year finish warranty.
Hazelnut European Oak
Constructed of oak, one of the more popular choices for hardwood flooring, the Hazelnut European Oak floors resemble a scrumptious hazelnut dessert. You may conjure up images of something delicious flavored with a hazelnut spread and served alongside a steaming cup of hot coffee. The floors pair well with neutral or warm tones and can go in almost any space in your home. Each plank is 6 feet in length to give your space visual continuity.
Built to last, this flooring option has an eight-layer, scratch-resistant finish, a benefit if you have children and pets. Even if your kids, dogs, or cats scratch the floors, the floors come with a 25-year residential warranty. If you have the floors at your place of business, you can enjoy a three-year commercial warranty.
Some people may argue that white chocolate isn’t considered a type of chocolate. But don’t let that argument deter you from picking out stunning honey pine flooring that resembles this ivory-colored treat.

Evoking the appearance of a warm chocolate chip cookie, just oozing with melted chocolate chips, you can find Warm Caramel planks made from premium-grade oak wood harvested in North America. This high-quality flooring option is part of the Armstrong Prime Harvest Collection, and you can easily nail down the 5-inch planks. The warm hue works well in almost any area, but imagine these floors transitioning from a kitchen into a dining room space. They would make for a smooth transition and stunning focal point. Since oak is one of the most durable flooring options, it remains resistant to warping, and you don’t need to worry about spilling items on it.
