Charles Chocolates – Krik Krak

More gourmet brands are readily available now – both locally and foreign made. However when nostalgia hits and I want to be transported back to a simpler mood and time I still reach for a Krik Krak. via Instagram ift.tt/1jDKndv Tweet  Read More →

TriniGourmet’s Top Ten Chocolate Recipes!

TriniGourmet's Top Ten Chocolate Recipes!
Feast your eyes (and hopefully more) on the following Top Ten Chocolate Recipes on Trinigourmet I can definitely vouch that you will want to make them again and again 1. Espresso Cake (recipe) Light, moist and incredibly intense in flavour this recipe for Espresso Cake hides one little ’secret’, wholewheat flour! If you’ve never tried wholewheat flour in a dessert recipe I strongly suggest... 

Chocolate Cassava Pudding (recipe & video)

Chocolate Cassava Pudding (recipe & video)
Through the years I’ve made no small secret of the fact that cassava is one of my favourite local ingredients. Starchy and viscous it lends easily equally well to savoury and sweet applications, yet outside of cassava pone, most people don’t think of other ways to incorporate this tuber into desserts. Hopefully, my recipe for this chocolate vegan pudding will change all that! Cassava’s... 

Chocolate Sablés (recipe)

Chocolate Sablés (recipe)
These sablés are dangerous! No, it’s not because of their bittersweet chocolatey goodness. And no it’s not because of the chocolate chips strewn throughout that provide bursts of sweet creaminess. And no, it’s not even their brownie-like denseness that makes me issue this indictment. No, what makes these chocolate sablés so worth of a public warning is their miniature bite-sized... 

Fudgy Chocolate Cake ‘Brownies’ (recipe)

Fudgy Chocolate Cake 'Brownies' (recipe)
I adore brownies, and I definitely don’t make them often enough. Although there are now dozens of variations on the brownie theme (even blondies), for emotional satisfaction I still find that nothing surpasses the simple all-chocolatey goodness of the original. This simple recipe from Everyday With Rachael Ray has stood the test of the time as I have made it several times since first posting...

Upside Down Chocolate Pudding (recipe)

Upside Down Chocolate Pudding (recipe)
This post was originally published January 23, 2007. It has been updated once since then. It was coming down to the wire for Sugar High Friday #27. The theme was chocolate and I still had no clue what I was going to make. Everything that I could think of required a trip to the supermarket which I wasn’t willing to do. Especially since I had already used my supermarket budget for this week. What...

TWD: Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

TWD: Espresso Cheesecake Brownies
It’s been far too long since my last Tuesdays with Dorie post. Truth be told, I think I was extremely disheartened after the disaster that was my attempt at the Coconut-Pineapple Dacquoise. Not that it tasted bad, but I put so much time, energy and money into it, that any disappointment was really too much for me with my stress levels at the level they were at. Now, I’ve cooled off, had... 

Chipster-Topped Brownies

Chipster-Topped Brownies
Did ya think I’d forgotten ya? Hardly! However from now until the end of June I’m focused on some work-related activities that are extremely time and energy consuming, so my apologies from now that updates will be rather sparse. However if all goes as planned I will be able to resume a much more prolific schedule again This time around I’m back with today’s Tuesdays With... 

Mexican Turtle Cheesecake with Banana Rum Sauce (recipe)

Mexican Turtle Cheesecake with Banana Rum Sauce (recipe)
Here it is, down to the wire. Still über busy but I wasn’t gonna let the posting date for this month’s Daring Baker’s Challenge pass me by! The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey’s Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge. I have made cheesecakes in the past but it’s been a long while and I was very excited to try this challenge... 

Chocolate Armagnac Cake: A Study in Creative Insurbodination!

Chocolate Armagnac Cake: A Study in Creative Insurbodination!
It’s with bittersweet reluctance that I bid February goodbye. Never has one month seen me cook and consume SO MUCH CHOCOLATE! Although my tastebuds do not approve of the inevitable shift that leaving the ‘month of love’ will bring, I can only think that my own waistline is relieved by the new page on the calendar! Still, if ever there was a recipe to end a chocolate high on this... 

Chocolate Valentino & Raw Vanilla Softserve (recipes)

Chocolate Valentino & Raw Vanilla Softserve (recipes)
Look at that cake! So perfect for this month’s Daring Bakers Challenge! Chocolatey, gooey, with a thin, crackly brownie-like crust… so light but rich, it melts on your tongue… and.. not a drop of flour in sight! *record scratch* … Yup, you heard me! A chocolate cake, luscious, decadent and gluten free! I loved dropping this piece of information on people, especially my... 

Raw Vegan Brownies (recipe)

Raw Vegan Brownies (recipe)
This recipe (well one of its variants) was my first introduction to raw ‘cuisine’. In my rather shallow, self-indulgent mind, if I could enjoy desserts as these, without fuss or guilt, I owed it to myself to learn more! Since then you’ll be happy to know that most of my raw consumption has expanded to include vegetables and proper meals, but raw brownies remain a guilt-free pleasure.... 

Caramel Crunch Bars

Caramel Crunch Bars
I’ll say it up front. I’m not a toffee fan. I don’t like its overt sweetness, or its sticky tendency to adhere to my teeth. So, when I saw that the recipe that had been assigned for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie contained toffee I was a little worried. These Caramel Crunch Bars appear deceptively complicated but their assembly is actually pretty simple. First a coffee-chocolate... 

Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread

Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread
“Decadence with a smile”, those were Jason’s first words when he first tasted this Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread. Following his example I also dug in and had to nod (or moan) my agreement. “It’s like something I’d actually buy!” I said, and coming from me that’s high praise indeed. Rich, coffee laced chocolate icing forms the perfect counterfoil... 

Exotic Caribbean Mountain Pride Dark Drinking Chocolate

Exotic Caribbean Mountain Pride Dark Drinking Chocolate
In the past I have written about my love affair with Blendo’s chocolate. Well when I was in the supermarket the other day, to my horror nary a Blendo packet was to be found. However, there were two boxes full of cocoa pod shaped pallets of this new kid on the scene. One sniff and I was hooked. So, how did it taste? Well, I’m still trying to find a great first recipe with which to test... 

Army Of Chocolate Biscotti

Army Of Chocolate Biscotti
Like most food bloggers I have amassed a huge set of backlinks to recipes that I want to ‘try’ one day In fact, I would not be hurt if no one believes me anymore when I comment on their blog that I have bookmarked their recipe to try, as it appears that I never seem to get around to it. Well I have set a challenge to myself to become more proactive when it comes to actually putting these...

Sarina's Chocolate Saturns & Ginger Trigs (recipes)
Spaced out by the title of this post? You should be! I’ve been bit by the Sci-Fi bug just in time for this month’s Blog Party Inspired by The Happy Sorceress’ theme requirements, and some leftover ginger ‘hard candy’ that I had made on Friday, I put the following together… Chocolatey, creamy, with a sneaky rum assault, I named this cocktail after the ringed planet... 

Espresso Cake (recipe)

Espresso Cake (recipe)
Mmm Mmm Mmm. Can you believe that this is my first entry to Sugar High Friday for the year? I don’t know what’s taken me so long! But look at this cake, I think it was worth the wait This time around Domestic Goddess asked participants to post desserts that they ‘crave’. Well I crave chocolate cake. Not only is it the cake that I make the best but it also needs little to...
