Welcome to Carnival of the Recipes. This is the first time we are hosting this great collection and we hope you enjoy your visit. This week’s theme was CHOCOLATE. Anything that is made of chocolate – from brownies to mole was fair game.
To kick start this list of recipes, Tristan tried to provide a conscious cleansing post about How to Lose Weight Eating Chocolate on the Body And Fitness Blog. It doesn’t have anywhere near as much chocolate or sugar as I would like, but since it’s a Body and Fitness blog, my dream diet of chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate to lose weight probably wouldn’t fly.
Here are the recipes!
GATEAU (and other cakes and pies)!!
I had to look up what ‘Gateau’ was when I saw this recipe. A gateau is basically a very light sponge cake with rich icing or filling. Here’s a delicious Famous Chocolate and Banana Gateau Dark Chocolate recipe found at Famous Recipes.
Here’s a recipe for Devil’s Food Cake posted at Chicken Recipes – Recipes for Chicken. (No chicken with chocolate recipes?)
I had no idea that you could bake a cake in a crock pot. I always thought crock pots were reserved for stews – but lo and behold a Crockpot Choco-Peanut Butter Cake brought to you by Slow Cooker Recipes and Crockpot Recipes.
Here’s a great diabetic-friendly recipe for Chocolate Strawberry Bars for those who still need their chocolate fix, brought to you by diabetic recipes at Diabetic Meals Recipes.
Karen of Gluten Free 365 shares her recipe for Decadent Chocolate Cake and writes, “It isn’t always easy for people with food sensitivities to find acceptable treats. This one is for the gluten-intolerant. I first made this brownie-type cake for Valentine’s Day this year. I made it again Friday night for a dinner I hosted, and topped it with raspberries and real whipped cream. It was a HUGE hit, and my gluten-eating guests didn’t even know it was gluten-free! Warning: It is VERY rich, a little goes a long way. Enjoy!”
Other Chocolate Goodies:
I know that not everyone shares the same love for chocolate that I have, so here are some other delicious recipes.
I haven’t eaten a lot of duck, other than Peking Duck from Chinese restaurants. But this recipe for Rosie Sykes’s Roast Duck at Travel Blog – Mr & Mrs Smith Boutique & Luxury Hotels looks like it’ll taste delicious.
