We start off on this chocolate dessert quest with Jamie Oliver's Ultimate French Toast video recipe. Choclolate and bread actually can come together to form delicious dessert.

Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Regular bread
  • 70% solid dark chocolate
  • Butter
  • Banana
  • Hazelnuts
  • Sugar
  • Greek yogurt

Ingredient Highlight: Hazelnut, also known as filbert, is an edible nut from large shrubs and trees of the birch family. Hazelnuts are very healthy because they provide vitamin E, healthy fats, protein, fiber, plus they are low calorie and have no cholesterol.

Super Fast Chocolate Pots

Next up is Jamie Oliver's Super Fast Chocolate Pots. Because I has no clue what a chocolate pot was, I was curious to see the results. Jamie demonstrates the ideal types of cookies and snacks for dipping into these pots.

Ingredients

  • 70% solid chocolate
  • Organic cream
  • Butter
  • Brandy
  • Egg yolks
  • Salt

Ingredient Highlight: The basic standard for a dark chocolate bar to be considered dark is when it contains at least 70% cocoa. Generally the higher the percentage of cocoa means it will have less sugar. Dark chocolate bars can have as much as 90% cocoa or higher but these deliver a more bitter blow to the taste buds.

Jamie's cooking instructions for this dessert idea are provided on the video below. Quote of the Dessert: "So ladies, gentlemen wherever the love is in your life, do a chocolate pot, make something for someone you love."


Chocolate Cake

After he places the two cakes in the oven, for the icing Jamie makes creme chantilly and chocolate sauce.

Ingredients

Ingredient Highlight: Red raspberries are rich with fiber and easily out perform blueberries and strawberries when it comes to this important nutrient. Red raspberries are also very high in vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and has an important role in the health of your bones, skin, teeth, and even joints for its ability to increase to production of collagen.

Even better? This is a unique version of hot cross buns and it looks insane. Being very rich in chocolate sets this dessert apart from regular hot cross buns recipes.

It's officially a tart dessert but it could be called the Aston Martin of chocolate pie. It has the basic look of chocolate pie but with a lot more horsepower.

Lemon is added and when the syrup cools down it has a similar thickness to honey.
