  2. Cocoa Cocktails

    Cocoa Cocktails
    It's hard to resist the sweet taste of a delicious chocolate cocktail. From boozy milkshakes to sweet martinis, many drink recipes feature chocolate liqueur, chocolate vodka, and other cocoa-laden ingredients. They are tempting, perfect for dessert, and a whole lot of fun. 

    Here's one of our recommendations:

    DEATH BY CHOCOLATE MARTINI

    Ingredients:
    Cocoa powder, for rimming
    2 parts chocolate liqueur, plus more for rimming
    1 part vodka
    1 part half-and-half

    Directions:
    Add a few tablespoons chocolate liqueur to a small rimmed plate. Add a few tablespoons cocoa powder to another small plate and whisk briefly to break up the lumps. Dip the rim of a martini glass into the liqueur then into the cocoa. Set aside.

  4. The best milk chocolate combinations

    The best milk chocolate combinations

    Chocolate is our number one love and there are a number of reasons why chocolate is so popular. One of those reasons is the fact that chocolate is such a versatile product and can be paired with a range of different textures and flavours. From savoury to sweet, there are so many different ways that chocolate can be enhanced. Milk chocolate is sweeter than other and is therefore more suitable for use with other sweet flavours such as caramel, honey or butterscotch.

     
    It can also work well with the following:
    Coconut
    Lavender
    Orange
    Strawberries
    Raspberries
    Darjeeling tea
    Smoked black tea
    Colombian coffee

    Or how about trying one of these unusual pairings:
    Jalapeno peppers
    Bacon

    How to make the most delicious chocolate spread

    Chocolate spread will never get old. Here at Choc on Choc, we love slathering it on warm toast all year round – so here’s a little recipe (taken from Jamie Oliver) to get you through the last slices from that loaf of bread.

    Spread 40g of hazelnuts evenly on a baking tray and cook at 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6 for 10 minutes until golden, then leave them to cool completely.

    Place the cooled nuts in a blender with 100g of golden caster sugar and blitz until you get a fairly smooth paste. Then, break up 450g of quality dark chocolate, at least 70% cocoa solids, into a medium heatproof bowl, and rest over a pan of simmering water on a medium heat. Stir until melted, then add in 225ml of double cream and 100g of unsalted butter.

    Stir until the mixture is smooth and combined, then fold in 1 big pinch of sea salt and the hazelnut paste you made earlier. Divide the spread into sterilised jars, and you can store it for a few weeks in the fridge. Now get some bread in that toas
