The Quest for Chocolate
I purchased some amazing chocolate at Whole Foods Market a few weeks ago. They are allowed on the maintenance plan but expensive. $4.00 for a bar of 80% dark chocolate is a bit excessive. The recipes online look delicious and easy so, I wanted to try and make some treats. I thought I might get lucky and hit a home run with my first batch but that’s just not the case.
Here’s a link to the recipe’s website in case you want to give it a try. Chocolate
Things seemed to be going well during the cooking process. I was in the final few minutes of stirring the beautiful chocolate mixture then suddenly…I smelled it. “Oooh, I think it’s burning!” I turned down the heat and immediately the mixture started separating. I kept stirring but the oil was pulling out of the chocolate.
I decided to follow through with the recipe and poured the chocolate into the tiny muffin pan that I bought. I put them in the freezer to harden. I cleaned up my mess and went to bed.
The next day I pulled out the chocolate and tasted it. Ugh! I’ve never tasted burnt chocolate before. It’s so not delicious. But, the chocolates looked tastey. Oh well.
Next up, almond flour brownies. I have to admit that after the almond flour pizza crust I made last week, I’m not excited about trying the brownie recipe. Stay posted, I’ll let you know how the brownies work out when I get up the courage to try the recipe.
