Feral had the brilliant idea of starting a decadence thread:D So this is for all the serious chocoholics! Share anything chocolate-related....news about the benefits of chocolate, recipes, cartoons, jokes, or just your blissful experience when you're in the middle of eating chocolate:D

*blushes with false modesty at the recognition*

I have to confess hubby is at football tonight and I am being kept company by a bar of G&B's cherry.

Looking forward to some chocolate recipes

OOh what a great thread. Ok off the top of my head. Chocolate mousse: Melt some Green and Blacks cooking chocolate in a bowel over a saucepan of boiling water. Add soya cream and sugar (if u want) and some liqueur if u want. Whisk it all up and pour into small bowels before putting in the fridge to set. MMMM!!!!!!

Saucey will you marry me?

Apr 4th, 2006, 07:07 PM
Oh, that mousse sounds great:) I have a different variation for mousse:

Melt 12 oz. chocolate chips over a double boiler (as Saucy described)
Get a container of non-dairy whipped cream (I think it's 12 oz too)
Add 1 or 2 tbsp. raspberry liquer
Mix all the ingredients very well
Put into individual cups (wine glasses work great)
Refrigerate for about 2 hours

NO!! Ur eyes scare me!!

Mmm mm mmmm I just know this thread is gonna be so bad for my butt!

Ok here's mine.

Melt your favourite chocolate.
Mix in seeds, crushed/flaked nuts and raisins.
Spread the mixture onto a sheet of greaseproof paper.
When set, cut into bite sized chunks.
Put into the freezer.
When the call of the chocolate gets too much eat straight from the freezer, lasts much longer and you're getting the goodness of the seeds etc :D

Blueshark? I cant see where it says vegan on the site?

Apr 4th, 2006, 07:32 PM
I dont know if it does, but I have checked the ingredients on an actual bar.

Also in the Galler shop in Antwerp, the lady serving confirmed they dont use dairy products in the Dark chocs.

Actually dark chocs, are supposed to be of higher quality, and regarded as the best chocolate.

I have been meaning to try this recipe for the longest time now but I keep on forgetting!

Chocolate Mocha Fondue
In a small saucepan set over low heat, stir in 1/2 cup of strong coffee with 3 tbsp sugar until dissolved. Stir in 8oz (225g) chopped semi-sweet chocolate (Tigerlily Note: I think chocolate chips would work too) and 2 tbsp vegan margarine. Stir often until smooth and hot. Then stir in 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Pour into a bowl, dip your fruits, etc in.

230g raw sugar
8 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp sea salt
3 cups wholewheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup canola oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
400ml cold water
2 tsp vanilla essence
100g macadamia nut butter
vegan chocolate frosting of choice (I use Sweet William Chocolate (http://www.vnv.org.au/Products/Chocolate.htm)Spread)
1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1) Combine the sugar, cocoa, salt, flour & baking soda together in a mixing bowl, and mix well with a fork.
2) Pour all of the wet ingredients (oil, water, vanilla & vinegar) over the mixture, and mix well using the fork. It is important not to beat it.
3) Pour into two greased 9-inch springform pans, and bake at 350F/180C until a knife comes out clean in the centre. This takes between 35-45 minutes, but keep checking just in case.
4) Cool the cakes down on a cooling rack. Once cooled spread one of the cakes with the macadamia butter liberally. You can make it as thick as you like. I like it thick :D
5) Sandwich the other cake ontop of the one that has macadamia butter on it, and cover with lots of frosting.
6) Sprinkle the macadamia nuts on top so it looks pretty.
7) Binge
