For my own personal chocolate hideaway, my favorite recipes are the S’more Brownies and the Chocolate Pound Cake. The S’more Brownies are an old campfire favorite that has been brought back in a whole new way. The S’more Brownie recipe not only perseveres the original s’more ingredients but also adds a double whammy of chocolate and more chocolate in order to make this recipe more than a delicacy on a stick. The Chocolate Pound Cake with chocolate glaze should be dubbed “ sinfully illegal”. This recipe calls for Dutch cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate for an extra rich and chocolate pleasure. Other chocolate recipes include, Chocolate Truffles, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Soufflés, and Carmel Fudge Sauce.
“Chocolate 101” also offers helpful tips on chocolate basics. I especially liked the tip on microwave melting of chocolate by just adding butter so that it will remain smooth and tasty. The other seven tips are chocolate chopping, Bain Marie, perfectly melted chocolate, seized chocolate, piping chocolate (in making truffles), writing in chocolate, and chocolate curls.
