9 Ways To Use Chocolate Into Your Cooking

6. Chocolate Bark

Chocolate bark is a spinoff of peppermint bark. The basic preparation includes melted chocolate along with a variety of ingredients ranging from toasted pumpkin seeds to cinnamon, to sprinkles of red chili pepper. Begin by laying the melted chocolate mixed with the ingredients on a flat baking pan which is lined with wax paper. Allow it to harden in the fridge. Break it into pieces and enjoy.

5. Chocolate Salami

Chocolate salami is a delicious no bake dish. This is adapted from the Italian hard-cured sausage, salami. Chocolate Salami is extremely popular across Europe, and usually served during holiday occasions such as Easter. Include dried fruits along with assorted nuts such as walnuts, pistachio, or almonds, along with dates soaked in rum, which are all popular ingredients.

4. Chocolate Rice

Most haven’t heard about combining chocolate with rice, which produces an unique sweet rice flavor. This recipe can be terrific when you’re in a mood to experiment, when searching for a taste of the exotic:

2 cups of low-fat milk
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise
¼ teaspoon red hot chili pepper
2 cups cooked rice

Add all the ingredients except the rice into a saucepan over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to bubble at the edges, remove the vanilla bean and the cinnamon sticks. Add the 2 cups of cooked rice and simmer over low heat. Stir for 20 minutes to avoid burning. Chill and serve.
