November 17th, 2015

Are you in a hush-hush situation? Do you want quick dessert recipes with chocolates? If yes, then we are here to help you. These chocolate delights take only 5 minutes to perfect if you have all the ingredients set on your table. Let’s get started with the recipes…

  • Chocolate mousse – Not really the proper mousse but just a chocolate delight mixed with a little milk. Take melted chocolate sauce which has thick consistency and mix it with a little milk. Keep folding it until the texture gets even thicker and put it in your freezer for 2 minutes. That is all you need to do for this easy recipe.
  • Chocolate crunchy – Take waffle biscuits and put some raspberry syrup on the biscuit (You can take any biscuit of your choice; make sure it is big in size). Add in chocolate sauce all over the syrup and put a little cream. This recipe can be made on the spot too when you run out of ideas for desserts with unwanted guests.
  • Nutella sandwich – Take two big rectangular biscuits, which have no sweet in them. They can be salty but not sweet. Put a layer of Nutella on one and cover it with the other biscuit like a sandwich. Put a little cream on top and a cherry for decoration. This hardly takes 5 minutes if you have everything in hand. It is delicious, easy and super simply.
  • Chocolate smoothie – Use your mixer or food processor to make this recipe. Add in lots of chocolate sauce, throw in some biscuits, add a hint of fruits to this and blend it on medium speed. Once the texture is thick enough, remove it and serve it! You can add ice cubes to make this cold and a little vanilla ice cream on top too. Sounds delicious, right?
  • Hot chocolate – We all know how hot chocolate is made. You can either make it with the help of part milk/part water mixed else take hot milk and mix it with chocolate powder, sugar (if required). Blend this well by stirring constantly and if the powder doesn’t blend then make this in a saucepan. You have to just heat the ingredients together to combine them. This will take hardly 5 minutes to make. You can make the cold version of this too by adding tons of ice cubes to the hot chocolate and stirring it 5 to 6 times.
  • Chocolate fruit salad– Put a little chocolate sauce in a large bowl and add in freshly cut tiny pieces of different fruits. Mix this well until all the fruits are covered in chocolate. You can add more chocolate if you want. Other than this, you can serve it with cream on top. This is healthy, sweet, chocolate filled and scrumptious. Plus you can make this in 3 minutes only. It is all about mixing well!

These were just few simple ideas to do with chocolates. The next time you send chocolates by post to your loved ones, add these recipe ideas with the gift.

Unique Uses of Chocolate

March 11th, 2015

The history of chocolates begins with cultivation of a plant called scientifically as Theobroma Cacao. This means it is called as ‘food of the Gods.’ Down the centuries, people have been enjoying the rich taste of chocolate, derived from this plant.

Historians believe that it was the Mayan people of South America who learnt to grow this plant, 2000 years ago. Mayans began sourcing these plants from the rain forests and grew them in their courtyards. They cooked the seeds of the cacao fruit and made a paste. The earliest product was an unsweetened chocolate drink made by adding water and spices to this chocolate paste.

Today, chocolates are big business with trade running into billions of dollars. They are prized not only for their delicious flavour, but recently revealed health benefits.

Other than the use of chocolates in the form of sweets, bars, cakes, puddings, cookies and milk shakes, there are numerous other ways in which people consume chocolate.

Here are a few unique uses of chocolates:

  • Chocolate Toothpaste: In 2005, Unilever introduced a chocolate flavoured tooth paste in Philippines and some other brands have imitated this product. Users say the toothpaste tastes just like chocolate. This product is rare in stores, but one must try using it for its health benefits, which is better than even fluoride according to scientific studies.
  • Chocolate Bubble Bath: This is a chocolate flavoured bubble bath, ideal for kids. It has the smell of real chocolate and works like any other bubble bath product.

  • Chocolate Soap: For a relaxing, sensual bath, this soap wows with fragrance and flavour of chocolate. However, the idea of chocolate soap melting all over your body is an odd one and some may not like the scenario.
  • Chocolate Candles: Resembles real chocolate but it is most definitely not. However, it emits a rich scent of chocolate and is ideal for a romantic, candle light dinner.
  • Chocolate Dress: if you wish to go over the top and have dollars to whittle away, wear a dress made of chocolate. Chocolate dresses will certainly capture everyone’ attention. They are mostly designed for fashion shows and once -only events as they are likely to melt when warm.

  • Chocolate Perfume: Scent that attracts others and makes you feel grand like a queen/ king.
  • Chocolate Wine:  A liquid drink that blends chocolate with wine. This wine is created out of not only grapes but some chocolaty ingredients. A perfect concoction of wine and chocolate.

  • Chocolate Pasta: This is real pasta with a twist: made of chocolate ingredients. It tastes like consuming chocolate spaghetti. Chocolate pasta is bound to be tasty.
  • Chocolate Gum:  A unique product is chewing gum with chocolate flavour. It is made of usual bubble gum products as well as cocoa ingredients.

  • Chocolate Sushi: Made of regular sushi ingredients and natural chocolate to wrap up the sushi.

A unique food item!
