View Full Version : which chocolate desserts are milk-chocolatey?
12-19-2006, 04:44 AM
I've just bought some cacao powder for the first time and I don't really have any idea what to do with it. I've never used agave before either. I want to make a chocolate dessert but its for someone who likes milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate. There are so many recipes around, I've no idea which to do. Which do you think would be best?

I'm not sure. Im still looking for a chocolate bar recipe that doesnt involve coconut oil cause it melts quick. Let me know! I will turn it into a chocolate bar :p

IMO no matter what recipe you make, it's never going to taste EXACTLY like milk chocolate. But it is still yummy... just depends on how finicky the person is maybe?

When you do chocolate desserts with a nut base (cashew or macadamia) it goes less like dark chocolate. It's all a matter of diluting the chocolate a little.
Any of the cheesecake recipes are beautiful turned chocolate. They certainly do satisfy!!

I have a great recipe that is milk chocolate tasting that I created myself!
1 1/2 cup cashew butter (or any other nut butter, or a mixture of cashew and tahini)
3/4 cup coconut butter/oil
1/2 cup agave
1/2 - 3/4 cup ground cacao nibs
1/2 cup carob powder
Vanilla to taste
Vita-mix the cacao fist to make sure that it is pretty ground. Then put all ingredients in a food proccesser and bland well! Make sure not to over blend, cause if you do then it can create a weird texture! I suggest blending (proccessing) the coconut oil/butter first and then the nut butter and agave, and then add the rest of the ingredients, add acrob pwd last.
When the dough is done then put it in the freezer and freeze. It's best when fresh, out of the freezer! You can put it in molds or tupper ware lids or whatever you want.
I really suggest trying this recipe, you will probably love it!
Let me know if you do!
Create a day of peace and love!

Thankyou! I will try it. Not with cashew butter though because raw cashews cost a fortune. But I'll try it with some other nut butter.
