Hello my chocolate lovers!! Don’t you crave for a large decadent dose of chocolate right now ??
Yes you do? Well that’s perfect, because I just happen to have the ideal recipe for you!! Please welcome my creamy chocolate!!
It’s a recipe that I “stole” from Valrhona‘s website… I confess…
And since it is such a delight, I had to share it with you!!
This recipe can be a part of another dessert like an insert in a mousse, or as a topping for individual cakes (here on top of chocolate shortbread cookies) or simply on a delicious chocolate tart.
In such case, you just have to make a pastry (shortcrust, sweet, shortbread, hazelnut shortbread) that you will bake without anything on it. Once cooled down, spread the creamy chocolate and that’s it!!
You can also serve it with little cookies or meringue, presented in a little jar it will be perfect.
Another idea: stuff your choux with this creamy chocolate and you are sure to make quite an impression!!
