I am in independent chocolatier for Dove Chocolate Discoveries. Today I prepared and packed for my Dove Chocolate Discoveries tasting party tomorrow night. Below is the customized menu.
This is the quick cheesecake recipe I made with the DCD white chocolate smoothie mix that I will be serving.
Ingreds: 1 8oz brick cream cheese, room temp; 1 DCD packet smoothie mix; 1 8oz tub whipped topping, thawed.
In a bowl use mixer to cream the softened cream cheese. Add the smoothie packet. Mix until well incorporated. Fold in thawed whipped topping. Pour into pie crust. Refridgerate until ready to serve.
Sandy's Chocolate Tasting Party Menu
“A Pre-Valentine's Day Party” - January
Sip N Say Hello Course
Shake up those endorphins with a chilled mudslide martini, page 10. We mixed this cocktail with vanilla vodka but you can use any vodka: regular, cherry, espresso - possibilities are endless. Treat yourself to the Girls Night Out Kit this Valentine's Day – its the gift that keeps on giving. Kit includes a martini mix, shaker and 4 martini glasses, page 10.
Cinnamon dusted dark chocolate covered almonds
These are full of omega-3's and antioxidents but they taste so amazing you will want to feel guilty anyway, page 6. The almonds are packed in two, 8 oz bags so you can share or save one for later.
Chocolate Mousse piped on spoons
This mousse takes minutes to make but tastes as if you have been working all day to perfect it, page 21. Serve this to your Valentine fresh or frozen. Drizzle our raspberry dessert sauce over it and take it to a whole new level of goodness, page 17.
Cool Off Course
Spiced Chai Dip
Put a dollop in your Valentine's coffee or serve with dippables for brunch, page 9. There is also a sample pack with other flavors: chocolate, raspberry and vanilla. Which one will be your favorite?
Truffle Fudge Brownies and Mint Bits
A dry mix that comes with ½ lb of Dove Chocolate bits to ADD to the batter, page 19. I KNOW! Could it get any better? YES! Pour one of our sauces over the top – Chardonnay Caramel or Merlot Fudge (page 17) sound good? Or add one of baking bits to it: mint or PB (page 19)!
