Mother’s Day chocolates-salted caramel in a new version

Mother’s Day chocolates-salted caramel in a new version

Holy Moly! I don’t quite know  how this happened, but I have two articles left hanging since like a month! I guess it’s the infamous writer’s block – I wasn’t able to get past one paragraph. Meanwhile I looked at  at the calendar, and there I saw it. Mamma Mia! Mother’s Day approaching! This time I decided to stay a little ahead of the calendar and make gift chocolates today. But this courageus idea left me thinking – what should the chocolates for Mother’s Day be like? Definitely  unique and one of a kind (oh, these cliches,  don’t we all love them).  Definitely they should be heart-shaped, preferably red or pink. But what about the filling? How to make something unforgettable? The paragraph  you are about to read is going to be a little pretentious, Let ya’ll be warned! I wanted to make chocolate hearts  with filling that  reflects the uniqueness of the relationship between a mother and a child. It is said that the mother’s relationship with her daughter is one of the most difficult human relationships. Having the experience of unilateral, I consider that this relationship is certainly colorful and definitely the emotions accompanying it cover pretty much the full spectrum. Having thought that, I realised I had my answer right there! What does this mean in practice? Americans, the nation famous for its bravery , discovered  already a while ago the hypnotically-narcotic combination of sweet and salty (salted pretzels or salted potato crisps coated in chocolate, or …salted caramel!) Who has not tried  this freaky combination just yet, should quickly fix this error. The sweet-salty combination doesn’t come up as obvious...
Raw chocolate. The easiest recipe in the world.

Raw chocolate. The easiest recipe in the world.

I never thought of this website to be a food blog, but after a while I reconsidered. Every now and then a recipe won’t do any harm. After all, on a cold autumn evening nothing will improve the mood like handmade and homemade chocolate. And not just any chocolate, but raw, made directly from cocoa beans! Forget about supermarket treats  or pseudo-chocolate recipes straight from hell (take cocoa powder, addhalf a kilo of butter, a kilo of sugar, mix  until smooth and voila ‘!) Let’s make some real chocolate instead. The stakes are high. I dare to claim that if you’ve never tried chocolate made direclty from cocoa bean, this will blow your mind away. Ingredients to prepare 70% chocolate : 70 grams of any cocoa beans 30 grams of cane sugar Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste Coffee grinder (version for hipsters : mortar) Preparation: Grind cocoa beans and sugar until smooth ( approx. 10 min.). Add cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste Done! Eat  with a teaspoon of same, or sprinkle over your favorite dessert. I recommend to sprinkle it over vanilla ice cream. It’s a match made in heaven! It really is so simple and yet so delicious! If you tried this at home, let me know in the comment...
