Are you a chocolate nut? This is the perfect justification for indulging in some devilish chocolate treats. When you want the world to turn around, you need chocolate. Chocolate has the ability to express everything without saying anything. World Chocolate Day, which falls on July 7th, is just around the corner. What better way to mark the event than to indulge in a decadent chocolate recipe? Due to its widespread popularity, chocolate has become more versatile. Most of the people would immediately start making classics like cakes, cookies, fudge, ice cream, and puddings.
But to give you some tempting inspiration, we drew a list of chocolate-filled recipes you can make with this wonderful centerpiece.
- If you have a tub of vanilla ice cream and a slab of chocolate at home that needs to be devoured, you must try chocolate swirl ice cream. All you have to do is melt chocolate and stir it into the ice cream. Alternatively, you could also drizzle melted chocolate over the ice cream after serving it in a bowl or cone. Mmmmmm!
- Grab some dark chocolate and finely grate or shave (using a knife or peeler) it on top of Greek yogurt for an extremely easy and nutritious treat. To enhance your game, layer yogurt, granola, chocolate shavings, sliced banana and strawberries in a glass to make Yogurt Parfait.
- For World Chocolate Day, this mash-up of chocolate and pizza could be a perplexing yet impactful blast of sensations. Initially it might confuse your taste. However, when you team this layer of chocolate over the pizza base with your favorite toppings, like marshmallows and white chocolate shavings that mimic cheese, you will quickly discover that it is one of the best dessert recipes of all time.
- Those who enjoy indulging in savory foods can also enjoy chocolate; it’s not just for those with a sweet tooth. Our cocoa beans hold the solution. This is due to the fact that cocoa powder, one of its byproducts, may transform savory meals like spaghetti. Regular spaghetti or pasta can be enhanced by adding unsweetened cocoa powder to give it a moorish flavor.
- My friends are often complaining about how spicy my BBQ sauce is. They cannot handle the heat. I melted a few Hershey’s Kisses into my barbeque sauce because I adore my friends. It gave a full-bodied flavor that they liked while balancing the spice level.
- If you love peanut butter like crazy, take a spoonful or two and stir it into your chocolate. Just make sure to thoroughly mix until it melts. This delicious spread will only make things more heavenly on World Chocolate Day! This nutty delicacy is incredibly delicious and protein-packed.
- Chocolate Oatmeal:
Does such a thing actually exist? Yes, oh my goodness! This sumptuous yet healthy breakfast can be prepared for World Chocolate Day, in under five minutes!
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 overripe banana
- 1 chocolate bar
- ⅛ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
- sweetener of choice
Instructions: Combine all ingredients and cook for 5-7 minutes over medium-high flame, uncovered. Stir it occasionally once it begins to bubble. Add sweetness to taste.
- Hot Chocolate:
Combine sugar, cocoa, and a pinch of salt in a medium pot. Stir hot water in it gradually. Stirring often, cook the mixture until it boils over medium heat. Boil and stir for two minutes. Add milk and heat up to the appropriate temperature. Take the mixture off the heat and add vanilla. Using a milk frother, whisk until it is frothy. If preferred, top with a heaping mound of whipped cream. This is one of my go-to morning drink recipes on chilly days.
- Spiced Nuts:
These spiced nuts are a holiday classic, with a mild chocolate flavor and the tingly cinnamon and cayenne pepper spiciness. In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, cocoa powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and salt, breaking up all the lumps. In another large bowl, whisk egg white and water together until frothy and light. Mix the nuts into the egg white mixture with a big spatula until they are completely covered but not gloopy. Fold the spice mixture into the nuts to coat them completely.
Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes in a preheated (to 350°) oven. After turning the nuts over, bake for a further 10 minutes. Allow the nuts to first cool on the baking sheet for a short while before moving to a bowl to finish cooling. As they cool, they become crisp and firm, so you can store them in an airtight container. These spicy nuts are fantastic as a snack, but they also go terrifically with a cocktail and are ideal for giving as gifts.
- Chili Choco Potato Chips:
Simply melt dark chocolate in a bowl. Dunk each chip in the melted chocolate about halfway through. Use thick chips like Lays because thin potato chips tend to become soggy. Put them on a tray with butter paper below. Sprinkle some chili flakes on the chocolate-covered portion. Place them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to ensure the chocolate has solidified and they are fully dry. Chomp away! This kind of seems weird, but what better place to find inspiration than insanity on this World Chocolate Day? You must therefore give them a try since I can guarantee you’ll be astounded by how addicting they are! Chili simply appears to enhance the flavors of other ingredients. After all, everything tastes better with chili, right?
You can’t eat chocolate and frown at the same time. Actually, it isn’t. In honor of World Chocolate Day, make your own chocolate creation recipes in the simplest and quirky way ever. Bang! I’m out of chocolate now, I must refill my stock ASAP!
