Chocolate Cups

Choc Cup Wafer

When I think of the most sinful thing to eat in this world it’s none other than Chocolate that comes to my mind. The pleasure of eating chocolate cannot be replaced by any other dessert. Of course, one needs to watch out for the content of chocolate as it not only contains cocoa solids but also cocoa butter and sugar so as to make it melt in our mouth. It is produced from the seeds of the cacao tree which after roasting and several other processing becomes chocolate or cocoa. This final product is so additive that we are it’s slaves in some form or the other. For my Chocolate Cups, I have tried to use the most optimal balance of flavor and texture of chocolate so that we all do not feel too guilty or break those New Year resolutions.

Recipe: (Makes 8 – 10 chocolate cups)

1 dark chocolate/regular bar or chips
1 white chocolate bar or chips
Paper or Aluminum muffin cups

Boil water in a saucepan. Place a vessel on top of the pan such that the vessel sits well. Pour in some white chocolate chips and stir until it melts. I tried using microwave but the white chocolate did not melt well rather it burnt out soon. Now use a brush and apply a thick coating of white melted chocolate to the inside of the muffin cup in some random fashion. In the meanwhile, melt the regular chocolate. This could either be done in a microwave or the same method as white chocolate. Apply thick coating of this chocolate to the inside of the same muffin cup in which the white chocolate is applied. Place it in a muffin tray or some small vessel and refrigerate it for at least 2- 3 hours. After that, slowly peel off the muffin paper and your designer white and dark chocolate cups are ready.

Scoop some chocolate ice-cream, shave some more chocolate on top. You can also add a couple of chocolate wafer rolls for more chocolate.

    This is a splendid idea, but I didn’t quite get what it means when you say spread the dark chocolate in the “middle of the cup”…is is ok to just apply a layer of white and dark chocolate one after the other, else how would you get the ripple effect, right?

    thanks for sharing a neat idea though!:)

    Mansi,

    Pour the white chocolate mixture in the center and spread them with a spoon. Leave some gap here and there for brown chocolate mixture. Once white choc is done, now pour or apply the dark choc mixture all over. This will cover entire cup as well the gaps left to give that designer look. I hope this is clear. Let me know if it is unclear and I will be happy to explain.
