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 the combination would be less intimidating in a recipe…

Dunk It, or Dump It? Chocolate Fried Chicken

Today’s what I like to call, “Would-You-Eat-It-Wednesday?”.  I’m really enjoying this new segment, as I’m exploring chocolate options I never even knew existed. And to be perfectly honest, for some of these crazy chocolate pairings, it’s for good reason.  Nonetheless, if it’s chocolate, and somebody is eating it, I want to learn about it!

 It just so happens that this Wednesday coincides with National Fried Chicken Day…which got me wondering. Chicken & Chocolate? Has it been done? Absolutely! As a matter of fact, there are many variations out there, even in restaurants.

 

I’m dubbing this first recipe as ‘The Timid Version’.

This Chocolate Fried Chicken has cocoa powder in the brine and in the batter.

You can find a similar recipe here.

 

And then we have the ‘Real Deal’. Fried Chicken smothered in a Chocolate Sauce!
