Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Cranberry, orange, apple conserve chocolate but no turkey

Well, in an effort to be Thanksgivingish I've created a milk chocolate (using Felchlin Criolait 38%) and a dark chocolate using the Classificado (65% and of course Felchlin) plus a Cranberry, orange and green apple conserve which I then strained. I'll use the conserve park in other desserts and salads.

The milk chocolate are done as stars, the closest thing I have to a turkey, think about it, with lozenge transfer sheet decorations. The dark are done as rounds, looks like a pie, maybe, with musical note transfer sheet decorations. BTW, the tamarind dark chocolates were decorated using a Victorian like wallpaper texture sheet.

Maybe I'll do something with pumpkin. Probably not. The liquid is going to stay mostly liquid which should make this fun to eat. Or messy. Or both.

--Later--

As expected, the cranberry jelled a bit and made this wonderful chocolate easy to eat. Everyone loved them here at the Arms. I served them as one of tonight's desserts with dinner. Now, why don't you buy some of them? Why not.

What in the world? You are putting this comment everywhere on the web. Another Kerbe?

until the Zurich Council banned it in 1722 as unfit for virtuous citizens. (It had a reputation as an aphrodisiac.)

OK. Got it. Thanks. Now, how about a better comment? Thanks.
