Chocolate Craving

"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." - Charles M. Schulz

Love this quote as much as I love chocolate. And during this "Stay At Home" time, I've been craving chocolate a bit more than normal. Plus, I've been wanting to expand a bit my cooking knowledge.

I remembered I had a pure cacao bar refrigerated here at home - a bar I had bought on my visit to the Dominican Republic a while ago.

Call it curiosity or been a bit bored, I had a sudden urge to use that bar and learn how to melt it properly. As I was looking for easy ways to melt it, I found a great article called The Foolproof, Four-Step Method for Melting Chocolate by Real Simple magazine (online magazine).

I must say that the steps were easy to follow!

And the melted cacao? I must admit it melted easily. But since it was a small portion and with a bitter taste (pure cacao always tasted bitter), I decided to mix up some dark chocolate I had in stock. The result? A very delicious melted chocolate!

Then, I saved the melted chocolate for a delicious dessert. I had several ideas on mind on how to use this melted chocolate. What did I do with it? You must wait and see!

Any suggestions on how to use it?
All comments are more than welcome!

    1. Yes Sarah, it was a very delicious chocolate. And I do love your suggestions! I gotta try them next time I prepare some desserts based on chocolate.
