Chocolate Overload

Since last week's Project Runway was all about Hershey's, I've been thinking a lot about chocolate lately. So I thought I would post some random chocolate-related things.

Tootsie Roll shot
This tastes exactly like a tootsie roll. And it's super-easy: one part Kahlua to one part OJ.

My sister's Cheese-Swirl Chocolate Cake.
This is extremely yummy. She's only made it for us once, probably about eight years ago, but it was so good that I still remember it.

Kahlua Vodka cake
(also called a Black Russian). There's tons of different recipes on Google. This is also very good; if you bake one, make lots of glaze. (But you might not want to take it to a work or church potluck if you do.)

Chocolate clothes!
Next month on Food Network they are airing a challenge where the contestants have to make actual wearable dresses out of chocolate that must survive a runway show.

Chocolate Cheese Fudge
That evil Paula Dean! Now look what she made. My sister (an excellent baker) told me about this, and when we were at her house over Christmas we made some. It was weird. But surprisingly good.

Chocolate Frogs
From Harry Potter.

Animal names
Chocolate-banded snail, chocolate labrador, chocolate-colored cat breeds (including the chocolate-point siamese, York chocolate, and chocolate persian)

Other things people made out of chocolate
Shoes, a house, a cuckoo clock, a billboard.

Chocolate music
Well, bands named after chocolate. Hot Chocolate (best known for the disco hit "You Sexy Thing"), Chocolate (from Colombia), The White Chocolate Band (rocking the southeast US), and The Chocolate Watchband (from Scandanavia somewhere).

Chocolate-covered bugs

And for those candy emergencies, don't forget the chocolate band-aids.
