Hi, I was making some Glühwein truffles using Glühwein I made myself. Sadly it was one of my total disasters. I drained the fat off and stored the remaining glob of chocolate in the fridge. Today I thought I will grate it and use it to make something for ourselves. It turned out exceptionally tasty when I grated it. Now I sit will all the lovely grated chocolate that I do not want to waste by using it as chocolate chips, it's just too tasty you all the lovely Christmas tastes coming through and it is smooth, not at all grainy.
So, any ideas what I can do with it. I thought of the possibility of using it in a cassata-like ice cream. Any better ideas? It sitting there in my fridge and I do not want it to go to waste.
Why don't you make a cake or something and use this chocolate as topping, or use it in a cream ganache between the layers of the cake?
What recipe did you use? I love gluhwein, so I believe you as you say it a great taste :)
Thanks Davy. I think using it in a filling is the best idea. Here is the recipe I used to make the 50ml of gluhwein I needed.
50ml dry red wine, I used a good cabernet
½ t cinnamon
½ t cloves
½ all spice
1 orange rind
1 slice of lemon
