Try Out These 8 Homemade Chocolate Recipes for World Chocolate Day

July 7, 2022

It’s World Chocolate day! I’m shouting because my editor has given me permission to share my obsession with chocolate with you guys. How am I doing this? By giving you a bunch of delightful chocolate-filled recipes that can easily be tried at home, and with readily available ingredients. 

Fried chocolate chicken

Wait wait, before you say we’ve come with our madness again, how about you at least read the recipe. It basically just involves putting your chicken in cocoa, and I don’t see how that could go wrong if you spice it well. If you’re scared, you can just use wings or smaller bits of chicken, for starters.

Brownie ice cream crunch bars 

The deliciousness of this recipe cannot be explained in mere words. I love the way the ice cream sits on the brownie, as cheesecake sits on the biscuit. You can try this recipe with either chocolate or vanilla ice cream, and instead of crushed granola bars, use crushed KitKat bars. And your chocolate syrup can be any melted chocolate of your choice. You’re welcome.

QUIZ: Which Ice Cream Flavour Are You?

Chocolate fudge brownie ice cream

If you have some leftover brownies from the previous recipe, how about you mix them all together with ice cream and chocolate fudge. When we’re talking about comfort food, this one recipe is top tier. Making the chocolate fudge isn’t hard, just try this recipe or just substitute with a chocolate bar. You also don’t have to make the ice cream by yourself, as you can just buy any vanilla or chocolate one.

Chocolate bread 

Why have just a fudge brownie when you can have a whole loaf of chocolate bread? The person that came up with this recipe deserves plenty of dollars. It takes about ten minutes to prepare, and you don’t need fancy, expensive baking equipment to mix the ingredients. If you want to go crazy and take things to a higher level, eat the chocolate bread with your favourite chocolate spread. I guarantee you multiple stomach orgasms.

Chocolate Martini

This list wouldn’t be complete if we don’t include cocktails. Chocolate cocktails are the best because they combine two amazing things: chocolate and alcohol. What makes this martini unique is the chocolate liqueur. If you want to make it instead of buying it, here’s an easy chocolate liqueur recipe. And don’t worry about not having a cocktail shaker; just use any cup that has a cover.
