Looking for a quick chocolate recipe

it must:
  • contain chocolate
  • be really quick
  • be oh! so delicious
no fondants & choc-espresso cupcakes w. ganache cream, please - need something new and absolutely mind blowing!

ideas, anyone?

You can't beat a perfect chocolate mousse (also quick and easy):

or, failing that, dunk some strawberries in melted chocolate and savour, slowly

Re: Looking for a quick chocolate recipe

Take a 100g bar of any kind of chocolate.
Unwrap.
Eat.

Quick and no washing up afterwards (unless you are a messy eater).

Based on personal experience, this also works well with other size bars of chocolate.

Re: Looking for a quick chocolate recipe

Betty Bossi is an old publisher of Swiss cooking recipes:

100g of chocolate (70% cacao)

2 heaped teaspoons of sugar
2 egg yolks separated

1 small carton cream = 2 dl

2 egg whites separated
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 pinch salt

Melt chocolate in a pint basin, over a hot water bath,

beat the sugar and 2 egg yolks until light colour,
beat in the cream until light and airy
quickly mix into the chocolate

Beat the 2 egg white with sugar until peaks,
add salt, beat until shiny,
mix into the rest of the chocolate mixture.

Pour into moulds and chill in fridge 3 hours until lover arrives.
Resist eating it, as this will make you fat and unattractive.

Re: Looking for a quick chocolate recipe

My daughter made us one of those fondant chocolate things, which looks like a muffin, but when you stab it, all the delicious creamy chocolate filling flows out. I'm not telling you how to make it though

Re: Looking for a quick chocolate recipe

Gordon Ramsey's Hot chocolate souffle is easy and quick (the recipe says one hour prep but he must have been slacking!)

Gorgeous, thank you! Have already copied & pasted As for resisting eating eat - well, it's not a matter of how much you each, but of how many calories you burn afterwards

these are called fondants and I make them almost weekly, my husband would die for them!

@saint7uk: this is the easiest thing I know, it will take you around 20min to have them ready (baking time included, yep!). just let me know if I should send you the recipe! don't feel like posting it here since PaddyG would prefer to keep it a secret

What about gorgonzola dolce with dark chocolate?

This is straight out of the Green&Blacks Chocolate Recipe book (my most favourite chocolate recipe book ever ).
-bar of dark choc (min 60%) should be chopped into chunks
- you press lots of chocolate over the surface of pieces of the gorgonzola dolce so it is densely covered
- eat

A guaranteed mind blowing experience!
