SSS Week Eleven - Chocolate of Our Choice

Chris, bless her heart, decided we should all pick our favorite chocolate ice cream recipe from the book for this weeks assignment.

I chose the recipe for Aztec Chocolate for my base, but then changed a key ingredient from cayenne pepper to ground ginger. The ginger provides a surprise spicyness that I love.

I rough-chopped some of my Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered candied ginger to mix in for a little interesting texture.

It is quite delicious, but the one change I will make next time is to replace both the cayenne AND the cinnamon with the ginger - not just the cayenne. The cinnamon is too strong a flavor to let the ginger shine through.

Looks great! And I love your photo and how the ginger is glistening.

That looks sooooo delicious!! Beautiful photo also :)

The ginger is a great idea! I have been a little too busy for blogs, but hey, are we doing this party in SL next year? Brad keeps saying, "We have next year off. We're going to help Deborah!"

Deborah responds: The key words there are "We'r going to help Deborah" Because no way am I goint to try to attempt to follow the "Palma & Brad" show on my own!!!:grin:
