Foods That Can't Be Made Better With Chocolate (!?)


Posted in: Opinion

It's possible to make a thick sauce of red chile or chipotle with some Mexican Chocolate. Then either layer it on the beef patty or spread it on the inside of the bread slice. It would give the FAtty Melt a smoky "mole" type flavor. If you thin out the sauce, you could turn it into an au jus type of dipping sauce as well.

Halloween's Upon Us. Your Faves?


Posted in: Tasting Notes

Halloween is certainly one of my favorite holidays as well. The memories of halloween's past bring a big smile to my face. The costumes, the candy, the kids, the candy, the partying, and the candy. We've tried various treats throughout the years. Popcorn balls, homemade cookies, those goofy candies wrapped up to look like eyeballs, you name it. The favorite has always been and will remain CHOCOLATE. Snickers, M &M's, Hershey bars, Reese's PB Cups, even tootsie rolls. These of course are MY favorites and I've been known to sneak a piece or two. Ultimately, the kids don't really care. It's their night to go out and HOWL. I love it. Wish I was 6 years old again.

It turns out I'm a medium/dark. I believe this because of my love of Mexican chocolate.

Cool Tool: Chocoflex Spherical Truffle Mold


Posted in: Geek Gear - Cool Tools

How cool is that? But, I think I'll wait until a less expensive version comes out in the market. Till then, I will continue to roll out the truffles the old fashioned way, by hand.

What Kind of Chocolate Lover are you?


Posted in: Opinion

Any and all chocolate as long as it is at least 50 - 60 % cacao. I do have a preference for Mexican chocolate though.

Chipotle in Chocolate


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

If you are going to add some type of chile powder or sauce, mix it into the chocolate for a smoother finish and taste. It will probably give you a "mole" type of flavor if you add too much though. So go easy with it at first. Taste test until you reach the taste you're looking for. You might want to try using a Mexican Chocolate.

Hershey on the block.


Posted in: News & New Product Press

Never knew the world of chocolate could be so politically and financially predetermined. I understand the business aspect of the industry, but I don't understand if these manuvers will affect the ultimate processing of the chocolate. I'm just a chocolate lover, but in my opinion, the difference in taste and texture is vast.

Chocolate themed t-shirts


Posted in: News & New Product Press

If you've heard of Cafe Press, you know they have a ton of t-shirts in all sorts of designs. Well, they have a great collection of chocolate themed shirts as well. One of my favorites is the chocolate molecule design. Nothing cartooney, not flashy, no picture of dripping chocolate, just the straight molecular design on the shirt. You can see it here.

Is Xocai everything it's made out to be?


Posted in: News & New Product Press

That certainly is disappointing.. I've been curious about the Xocai for a time now and am glad I looked no further. Chocolate has enough "health" benefits on its own without it being exploited in this way.
