Hey folks, it’s white day again. My favourite japanese chocolate-crafting holiday!
Plus, unlike in previous years, twenty-twenty’s white day falls on a saturday. A recipe day.
So, this time around, I’m going to be a little self-indulgent. I’m going to combine three things that I adore – Chocolate, chilli and slow roasting – in order to make some simple yet delicious, ginger and naga-flavoured, salted, caramelised white chocolates.
And I’m going to hope against hope that some of you feel like following suit. Since, despite the ease with which you can whip these rich, sweet, earthy, almost-nutty and entirely decadent treats up, simplicity does not equal speed.
Caramelisation doesn’t occur quickly and my chocolates do have a two hour cooking time. Their flavour is well worth that commitment, of course, but I could still see it putting a few people off.
Hey folks, it’s a few days late but I decided to make you something for white day, after all.
And, of course, it was always going to be late. I don’t do recipe posts on thursdays.
This weekend, though, I’ve made something thematically appropriate for you all to have a go at: Chimp chocolate chip cookies, using the leftovers from my recent review.
Truth be told, they didn’t come out exactly as I’d planned but they were so soft, cakey and tasty that I had to share them, regardless.
Happy white day, everyone! I wasn’t planning on doing a thursday post this week but then some rather exciting news reached me and I just had to write one.
Today’s post is, as today’s holiday is, a direct follow up to this year’s valentine’s day feature on the Chilli Alchemist. Because, I’m delighted to say, that post no longer properly reflects the situation.
Konnichiwa yet again, spice lovers, and welcome to another mildly japanese-themed post. This time, a tuesday review, featuring one of my favourite holidays and one of my least favourite companies.
You see, I’ve tried all of the Screaming Chimp’s main range (as you can find links to in my sidebar) and I didn’t hate them. In fact, I quite liked a fair few of them, I just didn’t find that the chilli flavour came across very strongly. And they took issue with that.
I don’t dislike their products but I’ve come to hate talking about them because it always ends in a twitter argument that I’d really rather not be a part of. All because I’m trying to give an honest opinion.
But today, I think things are going to be a little different. Because their limited edition sauce certainly is and their chocolate is perfect for a white day post.
