Michael Smith says: "I'm addicted to chocolate and always look for a way to work it into a treat, especially with coffee. Together they make mocha. This coffee flavoured chocolate cake batter baked in coffee cups looks like a cup of coffee – until you cut into it!". Enjoy!
Pour this warming treat into a heated vacuum bottle to take to the rink. Whipped cream and crushed chocolate-covered malt balls would make it even more special. Quality chocolate (such as Lindt) gives the creamiest texture.
This easy recipe will make either type of chocolate ice cream with no custard to cook with or without an ice cream maker! Prep time includes 50 mins of pre chilling. Please note that both myself and the first reviewer got "micro chips" of chocolate instead of it being entirely smooth. I don't know if that will happen all of the time OR if it will happen with the white chocolate. We both enjoyed the tiny chips very much though.
From Baking for All Occasions by Flo Braker. Flo says: "Baking the silky, intense chocolate topping on crunchy (firm) shortbread makes
for neatly cut brownies that will lend panache to any dessert time. I prefer to chop the nuts for this recipe in a nut mill for consistently even chopped nuts. For a more attractive finish, after you chop the nuts, sieve them to remove nut "dust" before topping the
brownie." Don't be put off by the length of the recipe, it's just very detailed.
This is my own adapted version that I made from an Epicurious recipe. They are delicious but I need to say that they taste best the next day. When fresh from the oven the ginger hasn't really matured and mingled to it's best yet.
I love collecting hot chocolate recipes from different countries. When wintering in Paris, one of life's great pleasures is sipping a cup of rich hot chocolate, le chocolat chaud, in a cozy café. This hot chocolate is deeply flavorful, but not over-the-top rich, so enjoy anytime! Adapted from David Lebovitz's blog
A hint of strawberry flavor adds an unexpected twist to this chocolaty dessert. The cocoa-flavored crust is topped with a layer of chocolate and almond-laced mascarpone. There is 3 hrs chill time not mentioned in posted times
The Angelina Cafe in Paris, open since 1903, serves a thick hot chocolate in demitasse cups with a tiny dollop of mascarpone and whipped cream. They are famous for making hot chocolate from melted chocolate bars. It is incredibly easy to prepare by mixing chocolate shavings with hot water. You can serve it in small cups or in 17th-century style chocolate pots and demitasse cups such as those sold in gourmet shops.
