13 Chocolate and Peach Recipes 🍑

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

Such as….

How about….

Chocolate and strawberries?

But, what about chocolate and peaches?

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?

Dunk It or Dump It? Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

Hello Chocolate Afficianados!

image

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!

image

It certainly fits nicely into that salty & sweet category.

Dunk It or Dump It? Chocolate and Hot Dogs

16

 

It’s my favorite post of the week. The time when I get to hear the opinions of my fellow foodies. The day I like to call Would-You-Eat-It-Wednesday?

Each week we assess an unusual, and sometimes weird, chocolate combination. This week we’re veering on the weird side of the spectrum. 


Hot Dogs!

image

No, that wasn’t a typo. We’re talking about chocolate and hot dogs! Here is where the inspiration for this pairing came from. (Truly, I don’t make this stuff up.)

 

This restaurant hot dog, rooted in Massachusetts, is topped with hot fudge, marshmallow creme, and melted peanut butter.

Chocolate Hot Dog Éclair 

This hot dog, a Canadian fair offering, is served on a Chocolate Eclair, and topped with whipped cream.

I have a feeling this one might be a hard sell. But, with chocolate covered bacon trending these days, perhaps there’s an audience for it? I’ll let you be the judge.

 

What’s the verdict, should Hot Dogs be paired with chocolate?

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.

image

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

image

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!
