To make a serving of chocolate popcorn, heat about four tablespoons of butter in a pan and 1/2 cup of corn. Cover the lid and let them pop. Once they have popped, add approximately 3/4 cup of grated milk chocolate. Keep mixing for at least a minute so that the popcorn gets nicely coated and covered with chocolate. That's it! Serve warm and fresh.
Make a dough by mixing refined flour, ghee, black cardamom seeds, and water. Separately, melt some chocolate, roast your favorite nuts, and mix them together. Next, divide the dough into small balls and flatten each using a rolling pin. Cut them and make cone shapes. Fill with chocolate mixture, smear water on the edges, and seal them. Deep fry them, and serve.
Heat some butter in a pan, add risotto rice, and saute for two minutes. Later, add some water and cook. Add some vanilla extract and when the rice is cooked, add milk and continue cooking. Add another cup of milk, some sugar, and dark chocolate. Let it cook. Finally, add cream and orange rind, mix and cook for one minute. Serve warm.
Mix wheat flour, cocoa, olive oil, and eggs. Knead into a tight dough and then roll into thin sheets. Make the stuffing by combining chopped apricots, sun-dried tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, cheese, and basil. Place the mixture into the sheets and make ravioli shapes. Make sauce by mixing cream with melted chocolate. Now, drop the raviolis in it and cook until soft. Serve fresh.
To make a quick and delicious serving of chocolate fries, make the French fries until they are golden. In a pan, heat some honey and toss the fries to coat them evenly. Optionally, you can add your favorite dry fruits too. Once cooked properly, transfer into a bowl and drizzle some chocolate sauce on the fries. Shake and mix well. Enjoy!
