Happy Tuesday loves! Today is about cake. Now it is chocolate week here on blog. So of course Taste Test Tuesday is going to feature some chocolate.
For the Fall/Winter catalog season Tastefully Simple has this decadent Raspberry Chocolate cake that you can make in a mug, in the microwave!!! I know what you are thinking “a cake in the microwave” but no worries it’s actually good and very easy to make; cake mix and water, that’s it.
Now the beauty of all of this is the convenience of having a personal portion of cake and not feeling guilty for eating it. Moist chocolate cake with raspberry and add some chocolate sauce; a great way to change up your afternoon snack at work. Plus the mug is adorable and you can reuse it for coffee or tea.
We offer the mug cake as a gift pack so it makes a great gift or treat for yourself. Be sure to check out all the other tasty treats Tastefully Simple has to offer, their button is right here on our site.
Do you love chocolate? The smooth, rich flavor of a great creamy treat. Our friends over at Ghirardelli has a candy making chocolate just for you.
We decided to use this candy and dipping chocolate to make chocolate covered strawberries. Who doesn’t love fruit with a side of chocolate?
A very easy chocolate to use and work with. All you have to do is cut the amount that you want to use and place it in a microwave safe bowl on medium high heat in 30 second intervals. You can also make a double broiler on top of the stove if you want.
Not many people use or even like white chocolate but we love it. You still get the same great taste of chocolate but just not as rich as milk chocolate. No worries this candy is available in milk chocolate as well.
Easter is on its way so let’s get ready to experiment with chocolate. Need some ideas here you go:
• Make your own lollipops
• Ice cream cones
There are so many choices for you. Need some help just let us know.
Thanks so much for stopping by the kitchen today. Be sure to let us know if there is a topic you would like to discuss.
