This week’s Ten at Ten comes from Choclette from Chocolate Log Blog. If there’s one person who knows a lot about chocolate recipes, it’s her! “Valentine’s Day and chocolate are the bestest of friends,” says Choclette, and we’d have to agree. Here are her ten favourite choc-tastic recipes from Foodies100 bloggers…
over to choclette:
- Surely a rich little chocolate dessert for a romantic dinner à deux is what we all envisage on Valentine’s Day. Lucy at Supergolden Bakes does it in style with these inspirational chocolate soufflés.
- For something a little chocolatey to keep those hunger pangs at bay, or to offer as an enticing end to the meal, you could try these hazelnut-chocolate thumbprint cookies made by Kate at The Gluten Free Alchemist. They are, as you might expect, gluten free and can easily be adapted to make them dairy free too.
- If you fancy celebrating the day, or any other day come to that, with afternoon tea these rocky road cupcakes from Maggie over at Kitchen Delights might do the trick.
- Or then again, Bintu at Recipes from a Pantry reckons her chocolate cake is the best ever. It will surely create a gasp or two of awe and delight.
- Is it a cake? Is it a pud? Who cares, this Mississippi mud pie from Rachel Cotterill is mighty fine.
- Since discovering matcha back in 2007, baking with it has become a bit of a passion. These beautiful chocolate brownies with coconut and matcha cream cheese swirl are one of the most striking matcha bakes I’ve yet come across. Well done Suelle at Mainly Baking.
- Who needs a box when you can make a cake to present your chocolates in? Ness over at JibberJabberUK shows us how it’s done with this chocolate box heart cake.
- As for the chocolates to go inside the cake, how about these filled chocolate hearts at Becks Bakes. They certainly filled my heart with longing, especially the salted caramels.
- There may only be a smattering of chocolate on these individual Tiramisu, but they are made by Alida of My Little Italian Kitchen and as one of the most popular desserts ever, they are surely right for the big night.
- To finish off I shall leave you with Kate’s chocolate pecan ice cream pie with bourbon butterscotch over at The Little Loaf. If this won’t rock your loved ones, nothing will. You get a wonderful dessert and chocolate coated pecans too.
OK, we admit it, we’re going to have to dive head first into a chocolate fountain to satisfy our choccy cravings, after looking at all of those recipes. Thanks Choclette for this amazing round up!
