Chocolaty Treats You Can’t Resist

For chocolate lovers, a day without chocolate is a day wasted! The pleasantly bitter taste of cocoa feels like a gush of energy that stimulates them. Indeed, chocolate is one of the harmless indulgences that many people love. It also happens to be a versatile product that finds its way into many foodstuffs. From biscuits to chocolate, ice-creams and other desserts, chocolate fits in seamlessly. There are also several variants of chocolate with varying intensities of cocoa. Depending on the percentage of cocoa, these chocolates classify as dark or milky. There is also white chocolate, made with cocoa butter and milk solids. There are also vegan chocolates that do not have milk or butter – these are generally made with cocoa, sugar and cocoa butter, which is a pale-yellow, edible vegetable fat extracted from the cocoa bean. You also get pure chocolate without sugar, which can be used by diabetics and also for cooking purposes.

Some people love chocolate so much that they can have a rich chocolate brownie topped with chocolate ice-cream, laced with chocolate sauce and garnished with chocolate chips! Others just like to pop a piece of chocolate into their mouth once in a while. Whatever be the intensity of your love for chocolate, you will find the recipe of your choice in this mailer.

The Eggless Chocolate and Orange Cake is a delicacy that everybody will relish. The intensity of chocolate is balanced beautifully by the tanginess of orange, giving this dessert a stimulating flavour. The Gooey Chocolate Muffins and the Fudge Fingers are gooey treats for chocolate lovers who are not flustered by sticky fingers or chocolate oozing out of their mouth when they bite into their dessert!

The Chocolate Swiss Roll, Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies and Quick Chocolaty Biscuits are evergreen treats that will make tea-time special. You can even surprise your kids by packing these as tiffin-time treats in their snack dabba. Chocolate Truffles are lumpy chocolate treats that have a soft, buttery, slightly grainy mouth-feel. The Chocolate Truffle Cake and Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream are other chocolaty inventions that harness the strength of truffles to delight the diners! For those who want a slightly milder, better balanced treat, the White Chocolate Walnut Praline Rocks are just right, as they strike a good balance between chocolaty and nutty flavours and textures.
