THE Chocolate Making Post – Part 2

February 12, 2014

So you made it through the last chocolate post, but now you’re wondering, “what kind of chocolate should I use, if not chocolate chips?”  When I say don’t use chocolate chips, I mean tollhouse, etc – meant for cookie making.  You can use Pistoles – which are the flat round, or sometimes oblong, pieces of temper […]

THE Chocolate Making Post

There are a few types of chocolate filling – ganache (butter and cream based), sugar based fillings, nut based fillings, etc.  Below is a recipe for butter ganache… which has the best texture in my opinion, and keeps really well.  Use good butter.  It is also key to use liquid sweetener, as the sweetener doesn’t […]

A friend asked […]

Brownies

This is my mom’s recipe, which I’ve tweaked, which she tweaked from the old bakers’ chocolate recipe on the box.  She used to make it in one bowl  – but I prefer to dirty every dish I can.  I like these because they taste like brownie mix brownies, but aren’t.  (Weird right? We all have […]

Chocolate Soufflés

This is what I actually made for Valentine’s day – not the pots de creme. Before you start making the mix, butter 4 ramekins (I used 6oz ones), and coat them with sugar.  Cut 4 pieces of parchment, and butcher’s twine which you will later tie around the ramekins, after you’ve filled them. It is […]
