How about this for something different? 

All of us media junkies like to find yummy things to nibble on watching movies at home, or at the theater, or even at the opera (bowties and champagne).

Yesterday, I tried something that is so sinfully delicious, that I want to share it. How about - diary free chocolate sauce!!!

I took some of my 90% dark chocolate bars (tough to eat raw) and broke them into large chunks. After heating in a saucepan, some "Oat Milk Creamer," I added the chocolate chunks and regulated the heat so that I got smooth melting without boiling. Then I added some sugar, a pinch of salt and some cinnamon. (Next time I will add a bit of heat with some red pepper).

I was afraid that it would re-harden, so initially, I put the sauce into a large bowl. But even after cooling, it could still be poured, so I transferred to a glass carafe and into the fridge. Well it congeals in the fridge, but a few seconds in the MW takes care of that. On (non-dairy) frozen treats, banana bread, muffins, in coffee, well     

What is your favorite food thing to nibble on while watching a movie, and if special, how do you prepare it?

(By the way, it would be great if you could comment without quoting my whole post. Would much rather see what you have to say.)

Great Idea. A new favorite of mine but kind of a pain to make so only make it so often...but so delicious!

Bacon Cabbage Dippers:



INGREDIENTS
1 medium head green cabbage
1 lb. bacon
1/4 c. grated Parmesan
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
1 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano


DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 450°. Quarter the cabbage and remove thick stem, then cut each quarter piece in half.
On two large baking sheets, toss cabbage lightly with Parmesan and oil then season with salt, pepper, and oregano.
Wrap a piece bacon around each cabbage wedge. Bake until cabbage is golden and crispy around edges and bacon is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve warm with ranch for dipping.

Ranch Dipping Sauce:
1 tub Sour Cream and 1 Envelope of Ranch Dressing Seasoning mixed well

Just as a suggestion, when heating your chocolate, you may want to try a double boiler method. You boil water in a saucepan, once it's boiling, you put your (metal works best) bowl or another saucepan on top of that one. Make sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the top bowl. Makes it a lot easier to melt the chocolate without scorching! Or, for even easier, use the microwave. Put in for 30 secs, take out stir for several seconds, put in for 10 sec bursts stirring after each until it's fully melted. Just make sure you're stirring a lot because chocolate will heat a bit oddly and keep heating after being taken out of the microwave and you might not have to heat it as much as you'd think you would.

Since you don't need to harden the chocolate after melting, no need to temper/worry about the temperature for either method!

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I heated my chocolate in a bath of warm "Oat Milk Creamer" and stirred as it was melting. In my experience, heating up 90% cocoa dark chocolate alone doesn't work, as it has very little liquid content. It doesn't even melt well in a microwave, due to the low water content. Not quite the same as heating up "milk chocolate."

Good to know! I usually do use milk chocolate when I work with chocolate. I've had 90% but not very often.

Oh, here is one I just tried. My wife and I enjoy Mangos. I was looking at the pits one day and was wondering what use they might have other than being a source of frustration. So I Googled it.

Voila! Mango pit jam!

So, I saved a bunch of them (about 10 or so) and followed the web site directions - except, I added some cinnamon, and red pepper. Also added a bunch of leftover lemon and lime slices.

Need I tell you more ... the taste was sublime. On ice cream, on bread, in a spoon!
