It goes without saying that we at the belly love chocolate. We nuzzle on tiny pieces of the best quality we can get our hands on and live for the tiny high that ensues. Today is the day that I unpacked 5 beautiful bars that arrived courtesy of the lovely people at Chocolate and Love. Please feast with us….
This chocolate mousse recipe is courtesy of Bill Granger and is the most insanely rich chocolate mousse ever. Infact it serves 6 and uses almost half a kilo of dark chocolate. Madness! Yet it’s so damn good, especially when I go heavy handed on the obligatory splash of brandy… On top of that, the fresh rasberries and the whipped cream with a splash of orange blossom water, lighten and contrast the chocolate making it infinitely easier to keep on devouring. Bill serves his in coffee cups, which makes sense, but I only had old mismatched tea cups and that worked fine for me. Enjoy! Oh and if you want another great chocolate mousse try this one. It here on Growling belly and very very popular.
Princess Lottie has been at it again. So sinful I’m absorbing calories just looking at them. Nanimo bars a Canadian invention and Cherryripe bars inspired by an Australian confection, this plate epitomises diplomacy degustation…
I served this mousse at Simone’s christmas lunch and it out chocolated all the girls. Intense!
For the ultimate chocolate sensation, this is best made with dark chocolate containing at least 70 per cent cocoa solids. Good with biscotti, shortbread, or a little whipped cream.
As if one desert would ever be enough when Lottie is in the kitchen… On top of the superb white choc cardamon mousse, this Cloud cake made sure we were all as loved up as the anniversary couple on a massive carb high. This cake is flour free and instead relies on the beaten egg whites to raise it’s dense dark chocolatiness.
