Dunk It or Dump It?: Chocolate Hamburgers

10

 

Every month, I dream up an unusual chocolate combination. With a bit of research, I find out if any brave souls have taken on the unlikely pairing. And I have to say, I have yet to be stumped. Although this week’s combo wasn’t wide spread, it was met head on with chocolate passion. 

Inspired by summer barbeques, this month we are featuring hamburgers.

Yes, we’re talking Beef Burgers…with Chocolate

This first burger was featured on Posh, Broke & Bored .

As you can see, it has no shortage of chocolate.

Perhaps, you like your burgers with layers of flavor? Let’s add some peanut butter to the mix.

Yes, this is real.

Not outrageous enough? Time to bring out the big guns.

 Perhaps the combination would be less intimidating in a recipe…

Hello Chocolate Afficianados!

It’s time for WOULD-YOU-EAT-IT-WEDNESDAY?

 

The objective is simple. I bring an ingredient to the tasting table, and you decide if it’s compatible with chocolate.


Today’s ingredient…
 
Potato Chips!

It certainly fits nicely into that salty & sweet category.

Dunk It or Dump It?: Chocolate with Avocado

10

The holiday hustle bustle has come and gone, and I’m finally getting back into the blogging groove. This month we’re bringing back one of my favorite post topics…


It’s the game where I bring an unlikely chocolate pair to the table for your consideration. And you, my trusted chocolate critics, vote your opinion. This week’s spotlighted ingredient isn’t so odd for some. But, for others like myself, it may take some convincing.

I’ll be honest, when it comes to my chocolate, I’m a purist. Meaning, I’m not big on unconventional ingredients. I hear the gasps. As much as I keep an open mind, I just can’t do it. And this doesn’t just go for healthy options. I don’t like to see words like sour cream or mayonnaise on my ingredient list either. You can tell me the benefits of the product until I’m blue in the face, but if I know that something weird is in there, I’m not going to eat it.

 

Which brings me to this week’s Would-You-Eat-It-Wednesday pairing…

Chocolate and Avocado

Now, I’m certainly not snubbing anyone who eats the combination. In fact I’m a huge avocado and guacamole fan myself.

And the avocado certainly has nutritional perks, showing up in healthier versions of everything from cakes to mousse.

So now I bring the question to you, my fellow chocolate enthusiasts. Where do you stand on this alternative ingredient? Am I the only stubborn one resisting non-traditional ingredients? Is this the best thing since sliced bread (that preferably has been transformed into a lovely chocolate bread pudding)? If so, someone may have to trick me into trying it!

For those of you already absorbing the health benefits of the dynamic duo, here are some recipes worth trying!
