Nama Chocolate

Remember in my earlier post I mentioned that I made some nama chocolate, too?
Here it is...


 
 
Oh yes, it's far from perfect. Look at how I coated them with cocoa powder.. it's so not smooth! But hey, it tasted just fine! :)

I used the recipe from Just One Cookbook
Please don't despair me by comparing hers and mine LOL

What you need:

400 gram good quality dark chocolate (70% cacao), but you can also use semisweet for less bitter taste (I used Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate)
200 ml fresh cream (I used whipping cream)
liqueur of your choice (I used Baileys mint)
cocoa powder to coat the chocolate
 
Method:
  1. Chop chocolate to smaller pieces so it'll be easier to melt them
  2. Line a square tray (about 8") with baking paper
  3. Heat cream til almost boiling. Off heat
  4. Pour chocolate  in it and stir til well combined. Add in liqueur
  5. Pour into the tray and smooth the surface. Refrigerate til firm
  6. Remove the firm chocolate from the tray and cut using warm knife
  7. (I dipped the knife into warm water and tap dry for each cut I made)
  8. Sprinkle sifted cocoa powder and serve it chilled
 
I love it, but too bad I couldn't share it with the kids. I shall make another batch liqueur free :)

  7. It will help if you freeze the chocolate, it will not affect the texture. It's bcos of our hot climate hence very difficult to get nice edges if refridgerated.
