  • Vanilla & Almond Whipped Chocolate Mousse

    Vanilla was the 18th century’s Viagra. Its odour implicitly acts upon sexual stimulation in both men and women.

     

    And almond also does the trick. Even before the 18th century, Samson courted Delilah with fragrant almond branches. Alexandre Dumas is purported to have dined on almond soup each night before meeting his mistress. It’s rich in vitamin E – know to be the ‘sex vitamin’.

     

    Ingredients

    1½ cups skinned almonds

    500 g milk chocolate callets

    2 tbsp butter

    1 cup caster sugar

    6 eggs (separated)

    2 tbsp vanilla essence

     

    Method

    1. Toast the almonds in the oven until fragrant and golden brown.

    2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.

    3. Remove from heat. Add half the sugar and very gently stir in.

    4. Stir in egg yolks, almonds and vanilla essence.

    5. Beat the egg whites till stiff peaks form, and then beat in the remaining sugar until you have re-formed the stiff peaks.

    6. Whisk one third of the white egg mixture into the chocolate mixture. Once that is done, gently fold the chocolate mixture into the remaining egg white peaks with a wooden spoon.

    7. Pour the mousse into individual bowls and refrigerate until firm. Decorate the top with whipped cream, chocolate curls and a couple of almond flakes.

     

    Just for fun: Feed each other a teaspoon of the mousse at a time while naked.

  • Chocolate Pizza

    It’s Friday night, and you and your loved one are going to stay in and play footsies in front of the fire – what’s the only thing that could possibly add to your enjoyment? Chocolate pizza, of course!

     

    I have included bacon in this recipe, as I think chocolate-coated bacon is right up there with the light bulb, the telephone and Australia’s Got Talent for inventions. However, these are nearly as delicious without the bacon. (But go on, give it a try – you only live once!)

     

    Ingredients

     

    Basic Dough

    680 g plain strong flour (look for a flour that is high in protein)

    20 g cocoa powder

    1 tbsp dried yeast

    1 tbsp salt

    1 tsp sugar

    425 ml tepid water

     

    Topping

    120 g sugar cane molasses

    90 g cocoa powder

    100 g butter

    ¾ cup whipping cream (use the extra ¼ cup for spreading over your partner’s body later!)

    4 rashers of bacon

    100 g dark chocolate callets

    100 g milk chocolate callets

     

    Method

    1. Sieve flour and cocoa powder into a bowl. Add sugar, salt and dried yeast, and stir. Add tepid water.

    2. Prepare to get your hands well and truly sticky (with dough!). Mix flour mixture into water until you have a dough ball. (If your mixture is crumbly, add more water; if the mixture is too sticky, add more flour – sometimes life really can be that simple!)

    3. Knead the dough ball for a good 5 minutes till the mixture has a nice smooth look and is springy and elastic. Leave in a bowl in a warm spot covered with oiled cling wrap until doubled in size (or longer if you need). For this recipe you don’t need to knock the dough back down and let it re-rise.

    Note: You can make the dough in the morning before work and leave it to rise all day if you like – otherwise it will need a minimum of 1 hour to rise.

    4. Preheat oven to 220C.

    5. Fry bacon and chop into bite-size pieces.

    6. Take a handful of dough and roll it out to the thickness you like your pizza. (I like it very thin and crispy.) Place in oven (straight onto the rack; you don’t need a tray) for 4 minutes and then take it out. The dough should be easily movable in one piece but not quite cooked.

    7. Add 1/3 of the  molasses onto the dough, and spread out and dot with butter. Add bacon pieces. Place back into oven for about 5 minutes.

    8. Take out the pizza and drizzle with 1/3 of the cream and 1/3 of the chocolate.  Repeat process for the rest of the dough.

     

    Sit in front of fire, eat with fingers (and toes if you can – photos, please!) and test each other with the 50 Shades of Chocolate sex quiz!

     

    Enjoy!

  • A Whisker Short of a Party

    Met a lovely new person last week called Cassie. Cassie and I just clicked, and we met up for coffee. I tell her all about my 50 Shades of Chocolate, and she tells me all about her cupcake business. Then she asks me if I like eating Brazilian.

     

    Pause.

     

    Process.

     

    Is this some kind of lesbian overture? 50 Shades of Chocolate could be landing me in all sorts of trouble!

     

    “It’s all you can eat,” she says.

     

    WTF? A lesbian orgy?!

     

    “‘They come round with the meat on skewers.”

     

    Oh God! I think she actually means food.

    Message in a Bottle

     

    A fun game that has the added benefit of (possibly) improving your spelling! We do love a good win-win situation!

     

    Ingredients

    ¼ cup of cream

    200 g chocolate callets

    Dictionary (optional)

    Blindfold

     

    Method

    Add chocolate and cream into pan and heat until melted. Pour into a squeezy bottle.

     

    Get naked! Prepare your partner with blindfold. Squirt an erotic word on your partner’s body, letter by letter. Each time your partner gets the letter correct, you get to lick the letter off until your partner has worked out the full word. Change places and enjoy!

    OMG Edible Chocolate Massage Oil

     

    If you were to close your eyes and think about the most perfect Friday evening in with your loved one, could it possibly be without a session in bed with a jar of edible chocolate massage oil? Add a slice of  decadent çhocolate pizza, and it could be the best night of your life!  

     

    Chocolate massage oil is so easy to make and yet so deliciously delightful to use. You also can burn the oil in an essential oil burner, which will not only introduce heavenly chocolate notes to the room, but will also warm the oil for you. (Just loving these win-win situations!)

     

    Ingredients

    ¼ cup glycerine

    ¼ tsp honey

    ¼ tsp vanilla essence

    1 tsp chocolate extract

     

    Method

    Mix all ingredients together. Light candles. Warm your hands and away you go!

     

    P.S. This massage oil not only pleasures, relaxes and possibly brings you to new heights, but it also nourishes the skin too!
