Tasteful Tuesday: Chocolate Chip Day

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Since Chocolate Chip Day (5/15), like Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, originated in Massachusetts, we couldn’t skip past it without sharing some recipes that include chocolate chips. Here are three from our blog, and feel free to leave your chocolate chip-including recipe in the comments below!

Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Regular homemade pancakes are delicious, but sometimes we need a little chocolate thrown in.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Same goes for banana bread – chocolate chips add a wonderful surprise to this delicious creation.

White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

We love this recipe, and since white chocolate chips are technically chocolate chips, we felt it belonged on this list.

Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

Chocolate mousse is a dreamy, decadent and creamy dessert that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. This recipe will make about 8 servings, so it’s perfect for a brunch with friends or a dinner party (just alter the measurements for your needs). Make the mousse ahead of time (up to 2 days in advance) or a couple of hours before you plan to serve it.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 8-10 ounce bittersweet chocolate
    (60-70% cocoa)

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, make a custard using the egg yolks, half of the granulated sugar (2 tablespoons) and 3/4 cup of the heavy cream over medium heat. Stir until the ingredients are completely combined.
  2. Place the chocolate in a medium bowl. Using a metal strainer, pour the custard into the bowl of chocolate. Let sit for a couple of minutes, until the chocolate is melted enough to combine. Once the custard is completely incorporated (the mixture should have a fudge-like texture), place in the fridge to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, make whipped cream using the remaining 1 1/4 cup of heavy cream and granulated sugar. We recommend whisking by hand until stiff peaks form. If using a hand mixer or stand mixer, be careful not to overwhip.
  4. Once the chocolate mixture is completely cooled, add a spoonful of the whipped cream to the bowl. Mix until it is combined and the texture becomes creamier. Then, fold the chocolate mixture into the remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, then enjoy!
