This month's We should Cocoa challenge was a real challenge indeed - to make something savoury with chocolate and it has to be vegetarian! I have to admit I was not completely taken by the challenge initially as I wanted to bake something and not many ideas were forthcoming! However, I do like a good challenge and decided to embrace it. I thought about making potato waffles with chocolate syrup but thought it was too similar to a sweet dessert. I also thought about making chocolate and cheese scones but wasn't sure how they would turn out. So I decided to make these chocolate and cheese twists instead which includes my favourite ingredients - chocolate (nutella), cheese and puff pastry! I firmly believe that you can make anything with puff pastry and it will taste good. The result - I really, truly liked it :) I love the sweet and salty combination and who doesn't like pastry? I also made some traditional tomato and cheese twists just in case the chocolate ones didn't work out.
So not very original or out of the box but I really struggled with this one and am looking forward to the round up to view everyone's creation and then thinking to myself "now why didn't I think of that?" Make sure you check out Chocolate Log Blog who is hosting this month at the end of Feb to see the creative entries! If you are interested in joining in, check out Chocolate Teapot on the 1st of March for a new challenge.
the eagle eyed amongt you will notice that there is only a small corner of chocolate... yes I was very skeptical and I will admit it! Sprinkle generous amounts of grated parmesan on top and fold in half.
