Over Shabbat I was perusing various cookbooks and came across the following recipe in Ellen's(one of my apartment mates) Kosher By Design: Short on Time.
Intriguing, I thought. Every time I go to Cafe K or Shallots or various other places I pay anywhere from $10-15 for that dessert. Could I make it myself? If I could, then there was no need to get these desserts at those restaraunts anymore, now was there?
Well, thought I, I have the little ramekins (so thoughtfully provided by my mother), so why not try?
And guess what? I made perfectly beautiful hot chocolate surprise cakes- and they are parve! The only thing I would have needed to set them off would have been parve confectioner's sugar and chocolate syrup. Then I could have drizzled the syrup, sprinkled the confectioner's sugar, placed a little flower on the side and voila- professional, pretty dessert!
Here they are:
And this is how it looks when you eat it:
Yum yum yum. If I only had a ballroom, the parties I could throw!
