Hola Amigos! Brand new week and world of opportunities are all at our fingertips! Let's start this week on a sweet note and give the best of us to make each day count!
Do you remember your first kiss? Perhaps you remember the sweetheart who stole it from you, perhaps you remember the place or even what you were wearing that day..what I'm sure deep inside you don't want to remember are the feelings of adolescence awkwardness of that important moment in life, Not quite knowing what to do or how to react, all those emotions were most likely summarized in one word "wow", but you didn't show it...cool as a cucumber you went on with your date while your heart was doing Olympic flips!
My dessert today in many ways resembles that first kiss. It's sweet, leaves you wanting more...but it's sloppy! No matter how you cut it, serve it, photograph it...it's just a sloppy mess! Let;s get the recipe.
Strawberry and Chocolate Sloppy Pie
50 oz of Semisweet Chocolate
1 3/4 cups of white or wheat bread crumbs
2 cups chocolate milk
2 eggs separated
1/2 cup super fine sugar
3 Tablespoons Strawberry Preserves
Heat up your oven at 360F. In a saucepan, melt your chocolate and chocolate milk until almost boiling. Move from heat and set aside. Temper the 2 egg yolks with a bit of the chocolate mix. Add the tempered egg yolks and chocolate mix to the bread crumbs. Mix and add 5 Tablespoons of the super fine sugar. Pour this mix into a deep pie dish and bake for 25 minutes or firm to the touch.
In the meantime, whip the egg whites with the remaining sugar until forming soft glistening peaks.
Once the pie is firm, remove from oven and top it first with the strawberry preserves and then the Meringue. Place in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
Serve it warm or cold and enjoy it!..
It's a sweet mess...it's slippery sweet texture won't allow you to have a picture perfect shot or the perfect first time serving!
Probably you will be coming back for extra meringue because you didn't get enough the first time.
And you can only eat it with a spoon and lots and lots of napkins!
What I suggest is just do what you did on that first date, the moment you got that first kiss...Close Your Eyes and Enjoy it!
Remember, everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
