13 Chocolate and Orange Recipes ūüćä

16

When we think of chocolate desserts with fruit, we often think of strawberries, raspberries, and bananas. Citrus? Not so much. But, why not?

Let’s take a look at Oranges. They’re the perfect summer fruit. A little sweet, a little sour, capable of waking up your senses one at a time.

 

The smell,

The feel,

The taste.

There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day.

Now take that tart, juicy masterpiece, and blend it with decadent chocolate.

The results? Nothing short of magic.

Summer ala Mode ‚ėÄÔłŹ

Summer just wouldn’t be summer without ice cream. Which puts this frozen treat in popular demand.

So then, should you go out for ice cream? 

IMG_0827

Before you do, you should know the risks.

Risks?

IMG_0828

Uh, yeah.

IMG_0832

Racing the neighborhood kids to the ice cream truck? Not a good idea. Those kids are hungry. Aggressive. And probably faster than you.

 

IMG_0799

A walk in the park? Not so much. Combine heat and gravity and you have a tragic cone decapitation on your hands. Er, on the ground.

IMG_0792

Ye old ice cream parlor. Surely, that’s safe? Until your cone self combusts.

IMG_0795

Well then, how about a treat right outside the comfort of your own home? 

Weather forecast, cloudy with a chance of soccer balls.

IMG_0793

And don’t forget about all of the ice cream predators lurking out there. 

Man’s best friend? Not when ice cream is involved.

IMG_0568

Gentle giants, not when their tongue is bigger than your head.

IMG_0833

Let’s face it, ice cream can drive even the most motherly of creatures to a life of crime.

IMG_0574

So, does going out for ice cream still seem like a good idea?

IMG_0830

My recommendation, stay safe, and try one of these delightful ice cream creations in the safety of your own kitchen.

13 Chocolate and Peach Recipes ūüćĎ

 I think you’d agree that some fruits just naturally pair well with chocolate. 

Such as….

IMG_0375

Chocolate and bananas?

IMG_0378

 

How about….

IMG_0344

Chocolate and strawberries?

IMG_0379

 

But, what about chocolate and peaches?

IMG_0381


Granted, peaches are not the most common fruit found in chocolate desserts. Actually, the combination might even sound a bit odd. But maybe we just havent given the humble peach a proper chance to shine. 

Still skeptical?
