Ingredients

  • 1/2  Cup  plain or unsweetened Fair Trade chocolate
  • 4  Tablespoons  organic butter
  • 2  Tablespoons  heavy cream
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  Pound  powdered sugar

Directions

Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave.

Stir well and add the cream and vanilla.

Sift the organic powdered sugar into a mixing bowl and gradually beat in the chocolate mixture. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little more cream.

Press into a shallow buttered tin and chill until firm.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.

Chocolate Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
