I do not consider myself a big fan of chocolate, or, better, let me reformulate this … uhm…how could I say it right…I do not eat chocolate often but when I do, I kind of exaggerate . I mean, if I have to eat chocolate, I need first of all good quality chocolate in a certain amount . You cannot fool around with chocolate. There are moments when you feel like eating it and that is the right time to do it right: it has to be sweet and full of flavor, with the right amount of cocoa, not too dark, but not too milky…it’s complicated…
For example, when you make a chocolate cake, in my opinion, that cake must really taste like chocolate and has to be soft and creamy – it has to make yourself dream about beautiful things, it has to cheer you up.
That is why, in one of my need of chocolate moment I prepared a chocolate mud cake, with a twist – I added some fudge candies to render it really irresistible. And as October’s Chocolate Party theme is chocolate and candy, this cake will find her way to the party. Don’t try to make it at home if on a diet
