Cooking is an art. It’s all about trying out distinctive ingredients and bringing new flavours into existence. Since it’s all about experimenting one can make anything without worrying about the results. Therefore, today I have picked my favourite ingredient that certainly makes my world a better place.
Any guesses? Well, it’s the sweet, dark and tantalizing chocolate. I know this does sound novel but, it’s never too late to try something new. So here are the top 7 weird chocolate combinations with food that you just need to try.
Chocolate + Pizza
Chocolate and Pizza are my two favorite things in the world. And when this deadly combination comes together it’s a door to heaven. For this, all you need is to get the plain base of the pizza and spread chocolate spread on top of it. Sprinkle chocolate chips over it and bake it until the chocolate comes oozes. Yummy! For a crunch add hazelnut on the pizza.
If not baking then you can always check out homemade tawa pizza recipe where you’ll get the answer to your question – “I don’t have an oven, how do I bake chocolate pizza?”
Chocolate + Avacado
The first time you read chocolate and avocado you might have thought “Err, what it is?” Well, let me tell you that apart from being healthy and full-of-nutrients. The chocolate avocado mousse is decadent and easy to make. Gather all the ingredients you need in the food processor. Ripe avocados, melted chocolate, cocoa powder, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla and then churn until creamy.
Chill for at least an hour. Serve the mouse with a dollop of cream, shredded dark chocolate and little nuts. You can use any kind of toppings, perhaps a weird combination as well. * suppresses laughter *
Chocolate + Chiles
The hot and spicy is enough to activate your taste buds chilli powder are mixed with chocolate – they create a crazy mixture that’s delicious. There are many recipes available on the internet but the one that happens to be my favourite is Cinnamon cake with chilli and chocolate buttercream. A plain base of cake induced with cinnamon flavour is needed. And the rest is quite easy.
The subtle spiciness is added to the chocolate buttercream. And then put it in between the cake and top of it. Freeze it and cut a slice of heaven for serving.
Chocolate + Fried Onions
As much as we love French fries we totally love to dig into the fried onions as well. Although the recipe for fried onions varies a lot. In India, it’s generally being made with the gram flour coating and in states with plain flour. But when you are using chocolate with the fried onions, I’ll recommend you to go for flour based coating of which the recipe is accessible on the internet.
Later all you need is to dip the fried onions into the melted chocolate. And let it sit until the chocolate becomes hard.
Ginger + Milk Chocolate
Chocolate almost tastes wonderful almost with anything. Whether sweet and savoury flavour which is why when I first came to know about the Ginger and Milk chocolate – It was the thrilling experience to taste it. The slight spiciness when devoured with the milk chocolate it was versatile. Or perhaps you can bake gingerbread topped with nuts and white chocolate ganache.
Additionally, you can have a candy bar of milk chocolate flavour and little chunks of ginger.
Cheese and Chocolate
There’s no surprise that wine and cheese go hands in hand. But this new compound that you’ll savour will make you forget about it. Bring the tart where the fruits are all being mixed with cheese and other herbs. The crushed dark chocolate on it for garnish will leave you with tingling effects in the mouth.
There are no particular rules when it comes to cheese and chocolate. Since you can make anything with both ingredients without having fear of ruining it.
Chocolate Covered Sun-dried Tomatoes
We are familiar how sun-dried tomatoes make any dish tangy and scrumptious. Hence, the unusual blend with chocolate is strange but loved by all the tomato-lovers. Get sun-dried tomatoes and coat it with chocolate, let it set in the fridge.
Similar to that there are diverse veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and many more to intensify the flavours.
Pairing chocolate with other ingredients can be tricky. But that only means of creating freakish flavors. Thus, the above-mentioned are the fantastic chocolate and food mixture that will make you experience a spectrum of different taste.
