    friday five--the CHOCOLATE five 29 April 2005

    OK, my dears, here goes. Anyone who doesn't eat chocolate at all. . . I don't know what to say. Perhaps you can create your own Friday Five.

    What's your favorite kind of chokkie--dark, milk, or white?

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert of all?

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert to fix at home?

    Do you use chocolate in any cooking other than sweets?

    Where does chocolate rank in your dessert cravings? Is there something you love better than chocolate?

    OOOOHHHHH, chocolate!

    What's your favorite kind of chokkie--dark, milk, or white?

    Dark's my fave by far!

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert of all?

    There was this dessert at an old French restaurant chain (Cafe...something...) that had this dessert called a Martha. It was a rum soaked lady finger at the bottom, then a layer of some type of custard, then really thick, dark chocolate mousse. I don't know if it's my favorite, but it's something I miss and can't find anymore.

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert to fix at home?

    Choco Hot Pots (I think it's a Nigella recipe and I think I got it off this bb) - amazing hot little chocolate souffles with white chocolate chips. It's so easy to make, my 3yr olds do almost the whole thing themselves and the results are always fabulous!

    Do you use chocolate in any cooking other than sweets?

    I do like mole, but rarely make it at home and, when I do, I use a purchased sauce. It has chocolate in it, but you can't really tell.

    Where does chocolate rank in your dessert cravings? Is there something you love better than chocolate?

    Chocolate is numero uno in my book! I love my kids more than chocolate, but dh might come in close second (just kidding - sorta!)

    I don't like white chocolate, but I like both dark and milk. Milk is probably my favorite but just by a little bit.
    What's your favorite chocolate dessert of all?
    Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, or a See's chocolate bordeaux candy
    What's your favorite chocolate dessert to fix at home?
    I like to make faux chocolate souffles - they're impressive, easy and yummy
    Do you use chocolate in any cooking other than sweets?
    I haven't tried it, but I really like mole sauce that I've tried in restaurants

    Some form of chocolate is usually at the top of my dessert cravings - I have a major sweet tooth

    What's your favorite kind of chokkie--dark, milk, or white? Dark is best, in small doses... milk is for pig outs.... white is never good

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert of all? brownie.... hot fudge brownie sundae

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert to fix at home? see question #2

    Do you use chocolate in any cooking other than sweets? Yes- sometimes I'll put a small piece in chili... the dark Mexican cooking chocolate

    Where does chocolate rank in your dessert cravings? Is there something you love better than chocolate? Difficult.... I think I have a healthy love of chocolate. I don't consider myself a chocaholic at all. There are many desserts I LOVE with no chocolate at all in them. I love warm apple pie ala mode. I love bread pudding. I love flan, creme brulee, and custardy type things..... I don't eat chocolate that much (really, honestly) and I will probably MORE often choose something non-chocolatey on a dessert menu.

    Nope

    Where does chocolate rank in your dessert cravings? Is there something you love better than chocolate?

    I'm not a huge chocolate person. I may have it once a month, except for ice cream, so it's low on the scale for me. I actually am not a sweets person, so that's probably why I can pass on the chocolate. I am all about the chips, dips, cheese, crackers etc..

    Milk or dark. Don't care for white chocolate.

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert of all?

    I like chocolate mousse, or the molten chocolate cakes that used to be really popular at restaurants.

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert to fix at home?

    Chocolate chip cookies are up there, and a chocolate cake is always tasty.

    Do you use chocolate in any cooking other than sweets?

    I don't; I've never made anything with a mole sauce. I like the idea of adding a small square to chili--may have to try that.

    Where does chocolate rank in your dessert cravings? Is there something you love better than chocolate?

    Chocolate honestly is not at the top of my list. I would take a lovely fruit dessert, like a crisp or pie, or an eggy concoction like a custard, over chocolate most days.

    What's your favorite kind of chokkie--dark, milk, or white? DARK

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert of all? Can't think of just one

    What's your favorite chocolate dessert to fix at home? Brownies!

    Do you use chocolate in any cooking other than sweets? no, but I am intrigued

    Where does chocolate rank in your dessert cravings? Is there something you love better than chocolate? NOTHING is better than chocolate! But if I'm out, I sometime opt for a non-chocolate dessert because so many in restaurants are such a dissapointment anymore. (Look good but fail in taste/texture)
