Chocolate Spaghetti and Chocolate Noodles
That’s right, chocolate spaghetti. Dying for Chocolate in honor of National Spaghetti day posted a chocolate spaghetti recipe and as a fellow chocolate crazed person, not re-post about it! While it may be borrowed from Emeril, does it really matter?
What if you’re looking for more than spaghetti noodles? Fear not, we’ve got you covered:
Creative Chocolates of Vermont makes a TV dinner like spaghetti meal variation with fudge and white chocolate.
Feel more like an Asian inspired noodle? Check out Komforte Chocolate’s Ramen Noodle Chocolate.
And last, but not least, one more starch…chocolate rice pudding recipe from the Food Network, courtesy of Giada DeLaurentis.
* 5 cups whole milk
* 2/3 cup Arborio rice
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest (from 1 medium orange)
* 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
* 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1 1/2 tablespoons orange liqueur
* 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a heavy, medium saucepan, combine the milk, rice, sugar, and orange zest. Scrape in the seeds from the vanilla bean and add the bean to the saucepan. Bring the milk to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the rice is tender and the mixture thickens, about 35 to 40 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and discard the vanilla bean. Stir the cocoa powder and orange liqueur into the mixture. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Allow the mixture to cool for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon the rice pudding into serving bowls. Cover and refrigerate for 2 1/2 to 3 hours and up to 1 day ahead.
