Ethan UK's Note:
This is delicious! - and despite being made from fat-free, sugar-free yoghurt is very chocolately and sweet. Was having a mega craving for chocolate but to give in just now would seriously get in the way of what I was doing - I don't usually stop once I start and just don't need to go there at the moment :) So 'Final Liberation' is that I can make this without guilt whenever I feel like it as it's so 'not bad for you' (to say it was actually 'good for you' might be pushing a bit too far!). It stands up very well as a very nice chocolatey chocolate dessert in it's own right but the fact that it's almost fat free and sugar free and can be made in a couple of minutes is a great bonus. I have a feeling I'll be having a couple more of these later :)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Grate part of a piece of your preferred chocolate into a bowl. I used Dark Bitter chocolate for the strongest chocolate flavour) but I'm sure that bittersweet or even white chocolate would be fine if you prefer! :). Put aside.
- 2Spoon Cocoa powder into a small plastic tub. (A cleaned, used individual yoghurt tub is ideal - plastic is good because it doesn't warm the yoghurt like pottery or glass would.).
- 3Add the granulated sweetener and mix it well with the cocoa.
- 4Add the vanilla flavouring and a small 3/4 teaspoon or so of the yoghurt.
- 5Using teaspoon mix well until all the cocoa is mixed in and it forms a very thick paste. If necessary add a little more yoghurt. Should only take a few seconds.
- 6Add a little more of the yoghurt - a teaspoon or two and mix that in well. Then add the rest of the yoghurt and stir it well.
- 7Add the grated chocolate and stir into the yoghurt.
- 9Note: I kept the sweetness on the light side because it's easy to add more. I actually added another 1/2 tsp sweetener but it kind of depends how heaped you make those teaspoons - I don't ! If you find it's already a bit too sweet then you can add a little more yoghurt.
- 10This would stand the addition of some preserved cherries or other fruit such as small pieces of orange, banana, butterscotch or toffee chips and even a little kirschwasser, rum or Baileys if you're feeling indulgent. If you're feeling really indulgent you could add cherries, liqueur and top with whipped cream, then sprinkle some grated chocolate or candied citrus fruit or zest for presentation.
- 11Can easily be prepared in larger volumes and chilled.
- 13I did make it again later - and yes it is absolutely delicious with small pieces of chopped up ripe banana :).
