Calling all chocolate lovers! Celebrate Valentine’s with The Chocolate Lover’s Sip & Nibble. Nothing says “I love you” like chocolate does, whether you’re loving someone else, or loving yourself! In this class, we’ll make gorgeous infused chocolate bark, from your choice of a multitude of flavors and textures. Everyone’s will be different (but equally amazing).
We’ve got just the perfect cocktail to pair with this little nibble: a not-too-sweet, just the right amount of sour cocktail.
Will you be our Valentine?
Ingredients for The Chocolate Lover’s Sip & Nibble (for 2)
2 lemons (or limes, or one of each)
gin (or vodka if you prefer)
Amaretto (or Amaro, or orange liqueur)
½ pound dark chocolate (70% pure cacao or higher. Trader Joe’s 72% Pound Plus is a great choice)
Fun options for infusing (choose any or all of these things):
instant coffee or earl grey tea
fresh or candied ginger
freeze-dried fruit, like freeze-dried raspberries or strawberries (you can find this at TJ’s)
½ cup flaked almonds, or chopped hazelnuts, or nuts of your choice
We’ll make a hacked double boiler in class. You’ll need a pot with hot water in it, and a metal or glass bowl that can fit snugly on the rim.
baking sheet lined with parchment paper or an Exopat
a Microplane or fine grater, and a citrus curler (if you have one)
cocktail shaker with muddler & strainer (a mason jar, lid, and mesh strainer is a good hack)
cutting board & kitchen knife
