How to melt chocolate

If you are not a master chocolatier and don't feel like it temper the chocolate, simply melt it in the microwave or in a bain-marie without adding water, milk or other liquids.
Avoid melting it directly in a saucepan on the stove because you risk burning it. It is very risky especially with the more delicate white chocolate, especially if it is not of excellent quality.
Always melt it gently and when it starts to become soft, move it away from the heat and mix it.

How to make chocolates

With melted chocolate you can make many Chocolates different.
Use the special silicone molds and enjoy creating the most original shapes.
You can too stuff them with cream inside of hazelnuts or pistachios, peanut butter or dulce de leche or with fruit like the classic cherry in spirits.
A fun and super-homemade way to make chocolates is to use the ice mold that is usually kept in the freezer. In cubes, instead of water, you can put chocolate. In this way you will get perfect chocolates, all the same.

Tablets for all tastes

Also to make chocolate bars there are stencils, but you can much more simply use the bottom of a mold for disposable plumcake made of aluminum.
You should not grease it or coat it with parchment paper because the chocolate will come off by itself once it is cold. Even with silicone molds you will get excellent results.
Once the melted chocolate is distributed on the bottom of the mold you can decorate it with whole hazelnuts or almonds or pistachios, or with the dried fruit like coconut flakes, raisins, cramberries or even candied fruit.
If you don't want to use the mold, simply pour the chocolate evenly onto a baking paper and let it solidify after enriching it as you prefer. More than tablets you will get so sheets, very beautiful to break roughly.

Bicolor chocolate

It is also very fun to combine different chocolates.
You can for example make a tablet with dark chocolate and white chocolate.
Just pour the first one, let it solidify in the refrigerator and then cover with the other to get a tablet of two colors … or even three if you want to add the milk chocolate.

Cake with advanced Easter eggs: the recipe – Italian Cuisine

Cake with advanced Easter eggs: the recipe


With the advanced egg chocolate you can prepare a tasty cake, which can be made in different variations. Here is the recipe for a super delicious recycling kitchen

Chocolate at Easter is never enough, but in the following days, the leftovers from the eggs donated to children are often discovered in the pantry. To not waste anything and prepare a delicious sweet and different from the usual, you can try to make one cake with Easter eggs. Here is the recipe.

The ingredients for the cake with Easter eggs

To prepare this dessert you will need them 200 grams of flour, about 100 grams of sugar (it is necessary to slightly increase the dose if you use dark chocolate, reduce it if you use the milk chocolate), the seeds of a berry of vanilla, four eggs, 300 grams of chocolate, a sachet of baking powder, a glass of milk vaccine or vegetable, cinnamon and icing sugar. You will also need some butter and flour for the mold.

How to prepare the cake

The first thing to do for the cake with Easter eggs is melt the chocolate: chop it and place it in a bowl, adding a finger of milk and melt in the microwave or in a bain-marie. Once ready, keep the chocolate aside e whisk the eggs with the sugar until the mixture is swollen, clear and fluffy. At this point gradually add the sifted flour, the seeds of the vanilla bean, the yeast, the cinnamon, the rest of the milk and the melted chocolate. Mix the ingredients together well until the dough is smooth and very fragrant. At this point carefully grease and flour a mold not too big and pour the mixture with Easter eggs. Put the pan in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 40 minutes: the "toothpick test" will be the foolproof method to verify that your cake is actually cooked. But resist the temptation to taste it and let it cool. Sprinkle with icing sugar is the last step to have a perfect Easter egg cake.

Alternative versions

To vary, you can try these two versions for adults: add a cup of coffee expressed reducing the amount of milk, or, alternatively, some rum or your favorite liqueur. If you want to serve the cake with Easter eggs like dessert, accompany it with the fresh cream, of Greek yogurt with honey and almonds or a coulis of red fruits. With such a recipe, perhaps, you will want to advance the chocolate on purpose.
