Rescuing seized chocolate
So I have some seized chocolate on my hands--fortunately I had more than enough un-seized chocolate to finish my original recipe, but that's neither here nor there. While I know there are lots of things you *can* do once you rescue seized chocolate, I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for things to do with it that work particularly well--brownies? Ice cream? Fudge? Chocolate fondue? Or am I just being ridiculous?
The chocolate is a bittersweet dark chocolate, in case it matters. Thanks!
you're not being ridiculous, you're being a Chowhound :)
i love the fondue idea.
otherwise use it in brownies - they allow for more leeway in terms of any minor changes in the texture and/or moisture of the seized chocolate. just use a brownie recipe that calls for melted bittersweet chocolate.
and now that i think about it, salvaging the seized chocolate with vegetable oil and then letting it harden could actually make for a terrific ice cream mix-in because it won't freeze solid. see, you didn't need any help, you already had great ideas! :)
you can mix it up with cream and add a few egg yolks and back a chocolate tart. that's what i plan to do with extra truffle filing anway..
