Classic Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate mousse is a rich chocolate dessert that is made with lots of chocolate and lightened with either egg whites, whipped cream or a combination of the two. A classic chocolate mousse, in my book, is a chocolate mousse that doesn’t use any whipped cream. It gets its lightness and structure from beaten egg whites. Sometimes it seems that these days, mousses are more likely ... Read More »

Chocolate Mint Pudding

Chocolate Mint Pudding

I was watching a TV series on DVD recently, and in one episode, the characters ate a heck of a lot of chocolate pudding. They are so much that it kind of put me off of it. Now, don’t get me wrong because I do like chocolate pudding – I was just glad that had already eaten the chocolate chocolate pudding that I had made ... Read More »

Milk Chocolate Scones

Milk Chocolate Scones

Milk chocolate scones are chocolate scones, packed with milk chocolate chips and drizzled with melted milk chocolate. I have to admit that I generally prefer my scones to have fruit in them, if they’re not going to be plain to begin with, largely because I like to be able to be able to spread my scones with butter and jam. Chocolate scones don’t go quite ... Read More »

Chocolate French Toast

Chocolate French Toast

Chocolate is not one of the normal breakfast “food groups,” the way things like bacon, eggs, toast and hash browns (among other things, of course) are, so I don’t usually take it into account when I am starting to prepare breakfast in the morning.

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Dulce de Leche Brownies

The best way to eat dulce de leche might be straight out of the jar, but even that can get a bit boring after a while and it’s nice to take advantage of some of the other options you have with a big, open jar of the milky caramel. You can pair it with fruit, pour it on ice cream or swirl it into a ... Read More »

What is cocoa butter?

Cocoa butter

In the simplest terms, cocoa butter is the fat in chocolate that makes it melt in your mouth and in your hand. It is a plant fat from the cocoa bean that has a melting point that is just around body temperature (somewhere around 95F, give or take a few degrees, actually), meaning that it is a solid at any temperature below that point and ...

See’s Semisweet Chocolate Chips, reviewed

See's Semisweet Chocolate Chips

See’s Candy is known for lots of delicious confections, but they are not known for having a wide variety of chocolates that can be used in baking, unlike many other candy companies. I suppose that you could try cutting up their buttercreams and stirring them into a cake, if you really wanted to give it a go. A better alternative would be to try using ... Read More »

Milk Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries with Macadamia Nuts

The best thing about baking a batch of cookies with macadamia nuts in them, like White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies or Macadamia Oatmeal Lace Cookies, is that you’re left with a bunch of macadamia nuts to use up in other recipes. Macadamia nuts can be kind of pricey, so they’re not necessarily something I keep on hand all the time, but their buttery flavor and ... Read More »
