Who knew??

post #1 of 11

I wanted to pass along this short article and even shorter recipe for chocolate mousse as I found it most interesting and it could not be simpler(only 2 ingredients). It goes against what I thought for years to be THE number one rule in chocolate, which is that chocolate and water shall never, ever, ever touch...as in neverever...guess it took a genius to show us differently...enjoy

Hmm an eggless chocolate mousse....now why didn't I think of that? ;-)
Funny thing is, in my dumb youth I HAVE mixed Choc and water. It
lightened up and looked "whippable". But I never moussed it up.
Who knew? Took me another 20 to discover the uses of mousse in
hair too, what can I say?:-p

Wow!

 

Thanks, Joey!

 

I'm only afraid of what this discovery might do to my waistline.

DH LOVES chocolate mousse, and looks quite decadent.

Look out!  Here I come!

Ginger chocolate, you say Joey?  Where, oh where can one find this delicious sounding ingredient?

 

<edit - my bad, not awake all the way yet... I googled G&B's ... WHAT?  I gotta drive how far to find this? it'll have to wait til I'm headed in that direction for something else redface.gif >

I always have mini bars of various flavoured G&B chocolate in my fridge as well as 80 per cent plain bars for cooking.

 

sadly, the owners sold their choc business to Kraft a while backmad.gif

KGirl.  Look at some of the recipes from their website.  http://www.greenandblacks.co.uk/recipes

Just use regular chocolate and put the flavouring into the liquid that you add.

 

No point in buying and using ginger flavoured chocolate when you can just add a bit of fresh grated ginger to the liquid part of the recipe.

 

The ability to change the flavour is the whole beauty of this recipe... at least for me.

yes, Michael of course I could do as you suggest quite easily, but have you ever had green & blacks organic chocolate?....all of their flavors are fabulous...as in fabulous!....I am partial to 'green & blacks' as they donated cases and cases of all their chocolate bar flavors to me for a 'chocolate fantasia' competition a few years back. My entry "chocolate without borders" won both the 'judges' award and the 'people's choice' award, which apparently was a first.....I give heavy credit to the chocolate.

as an aside, their white chocolate bourbon vanilla bar will change anyone's mind about white chocolate. your local health food store most probably carries them.....hopefully you have another choice other than whole foods....please do give them a try

Hmmm, white chocolate you say Joey?  I will give it a try, as I am NOT a fan, but if you say try, I will try…  and in the health food stores?  I was thinking that I say that label at Sprouts, I’ll look…
