I've said this before and I'll say it again.
I am not in love with chocolate.
I have been wondering if I am the only one out there, but Google tells me otherwise. If that wasn't enough to convince me, the fact that Bon Appetit published a whole post on desserts for chocolate haters tells me that I am not alone.
I. Am. Not. Alone.
Now, I don't "hate" chocolate.
Chocolate has it's rightful place covering a strawberry, in a chocolate chip cookie, as a layer cake (surrounded by peanut butter frosting), paired with hazelnuts, as a vehicle for marshmallows. A fudgy brownie with a streak of caramel running through it. A single piece of really good dark chocolate. In Mardi's chocolate coeur à la crème (I am a total sucker for chocolate as part of a cream cheese heart!).
See, I can be generous like that.
But overly chocolately chocolate items are likely to passed along - much to the chagrin of my household. (And yes, I have had "good" chocolate before, not just the crappy mass produced kind. Heck, I even have a cupboard filled with the stuff for baking.)
I know that my feelings place me on the unpopular side of the chocolate equation.
While I may have been somewhat ambivalent about this week's Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking Chez Moi selection, the chocolate lovers in my house were not.
This frozen mousse like concoction of egg yolks, sugar, dark chocolate and heavy cream was an absolute hit with them - I was asked to make this weekly. Well, then.
This post participates in Tuesdays with Dorie. Other blogged interpretations of this dessert can be found here.The recipe for Marquise au Chocolat can be found here.
