SUGAR HIGH FRIDAY #27 - CHOCOLATE BY BRAND
Don't be scared. Are you still with me? Good.
Three great words.
On their own, or strung together.
Chocolate is the theme for this month's Sugar High Friday. Oh I'm sorry, I forgot to mention that we are not alone. Do you know David? Of course you do. Everyone knows David. David is the ONLY person who could be up to this task. He's hosting this sweet little event. Oh, but don't worry, he's just watching.
Do you like Valentine's Day? I do. I love...love. And loving. But don't worry, because it's okay if you don't. In fact, some think it's better not to...
Did you already finish your Champagne? Wait a minute while I put on this CD. It's Barry White.
Here...let me pour you another glass.
You like Barry? Don't worry if you don't know the music, you just have to relax into it. Okay now, lower the lights. That's good. Maybe light some candles. Excellent. Do I make you nervous? It's okay. Don't worry. Get close to your monitor and make sure nobody is watching. A little closer. Mmmmmm good. I'm ready to share this with you. Just you right now, okay?
Don't worry. It's chocolate! You like chocolate, right? And, it's warm. Just a little. Let me show you...give me your hand.
It's delicious. And you've never had chocolate quite like this before? What's that? Oh, I see. You have, haven't you? Mmmmmm I see. You are coy. Maybe you are ready for this after all...
Uh-oh, wait a minute. I think some other people are here. I feel eyes...watching us.
We have to wait a little bit longer. Just a little bit. These people here, you know, the ones watching us? They want some too. I don't have enough for everyone.
I have to show everybody now. Wait for me. Okay? Please wait.
I chose Dagoba Latte chocolate for this. For lots of reasons. Let me tell you...
1. Dagoba chocolate is organic. Mmmmm no, that's not what I said. I said 'organic'. We only want to share pure, sacred, organic chocolate ingredients.
2. Coffee--Provides stimulation. Prolongs the experience.
3. Cinnamon. Excites and arouses the senses. Intensifies your exotic charms.
4. Frederick Schilling (of Dagoba Chocolate).
ORGANIC CHOCOLATE BODY PAINT
2, 2 oz Dagoba Latte organic chocolate bars
1/4 cup heavy organic cream
1 tsp vegetable oil
*optional* tiny pinch of chili powder
Lower your kitchen lights and wear something comfortable. Break up the Dagoba Latte chocolate bars into small chunks and sprinkle with 1 tsp vegetable oil. Heat cream until hot--but not scorched or boiling. Pour cream over chocolate and let sit for 3 minutes. Then slowly and deliberately take charge, stirring mixture. Chocolate should slowly yield to you and give way to your gentle pressure. Don't stop until chocolate has given way and produces a smooth, velvety sauce.
For an extra exotic treat and sensation, add tiny pinch of chili powder and stir until blended. If chocolate is too thick to use as paint you may thin slightly with a small amount of warm cream or vegetable oil.
Okay, I have to go now. I have somebody waiting for me. I really love tattoos. But you know what to do with this now, right? This is one recipe that you will most definitely enjoy cleaning up.
