My house has been overloaded by chocolate, which should come as no surprise, because if I had to choose a death, it would be “death by chocolate…”
I’ve made Homemade Chocolate Mousse.
It was ridiculously easy to make. Simply mix 4 egg yolks on high for 3 minutes, then gradually beat in 1/4 cup of sugar. Then, heat 1 cup of whipping cream over medium heat until hot, then pour half of it into the sugar/egg yolk mixture and then pour it all back into the saucepan. Cook over low heat for five minutes, stirring constantly until it thickens. Do not boil. Stir in 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted. Refrigerate for two hours, stirring occasionally, until chilled. Beat 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream in a chilled bowl, on high speed until stiff. Fold chocolate mixture into whipping cream, serve, then immediately refrigerate.
Chocolate cupcakes from scratch.
And though it’s not chocolate, Fruit Pizza is one of my favorites, as well as a contributor to the sweets overload at my house.
I’m slightly puzzled as to why chocolate is associated with women during gift giving times or as their “go-to” comfort food, yet men get the chocolate cakes at weddings…Don’t be surprised if I am the one with a chocolate wedding cake…
Anyway, back to men and chocolate…well, mostly men; In particular, my dad. We all know that Father’s day was yesterday… I have been blessed with a wonderful father.
Hope everyone’s Father’s Day was wonderful!
P.s. enjoy this. It is probably the funniest song involving chocolate…
