WHITE CHOCOLATE

I have mixed feelings about white chocolate. If you’ve followed BoB for a while, you’ll know that I usually tell you how much more I like dark chocolate than white chocolate.

I don’t think I’m alone there, am I?

But, honestly, I was convinced for a long time that I didn’t like white chocolate at all. Then, I had this epiphany that I’d had a lot of white baking chips and the like.

Notice the lack of the word “chocolate.” See, that’s the thing. There are a lot of products out there that seem like white chocolate, but they really aren’t. For-real white chocolate is a different story.

If you like those white baking chips and squares, then that’s great. But, if you don’t, then give white chocolate a shot. Just look for the word “chocolate” on the package and cocoa butter in the ingredients list.

All that being said, you still aren’t likely to find an all-out white chocolate recipe on BoB. I like to tame its sweetness by using it along with other ingredients. Here are a few of my favorite recipes that feature white chocolate.

These Blueberry-White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies were born during a bout of spring cleaning. I couldn’t have been more please with that happy accident. These hearty cookies are both sweet and tart. You can add salty to the mix easily with a sprinkle of coarse salt.

Of course, the beauty of bread pudding is its simplicity. Just add some basic ingredients to pieces of bread, and you’ve got a wonderfully delicious dessert. This Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding is no exception. I am fortunate to live very near some really good bakeries. I procured some gorgeous croissants in the neighborhood, used some of my
favorite chocolate, and plied the whole thing with cinnamon download teenpatti online game.

The result is this gorgeous and delicious dessert that’s just the thing when you want a good dose of comfort. Just put on your favorite cozy pajamas, grab a plate full of bread pudding, curl up in your favorite chair, and dig in! What a wonderful treat for yourself!

While I keep referring to this bread pudding as dessert, it would also be a wonderful choice for a sweet ending to a special breakfast or brunch. All that warm bread and melty chocolate… Yeah, you’re going to want to eat this most any time of day.
