Charlie's Afternoon Cake - Bonus Creation

We took a trip this past weekend to my husband's home town. It's a very small town in Southwestern Minnesota with no stop lights or internet. With no internet, I had some time to read more of Chocolate Epiphany. Reading the cookbook only made me more excited to make so many of the recipes in this cookbook. As I made the list of which member would choose recipes and what month, I realized the process of creating these wonderful recipes is going to be a long one! We need some bonus creations or I may still be creating recipes in a few years, from my walker!! :)

Since November starts the holiday season and everyone will be getting busy, I picked an easy one, Charlie's Afternoon Chocolate Cake. The bonus post date will be November 15th. I hope some of you will join me in this creation.

Cookbook Winner and First Chocolate Creation

Congratulations to our cookbook winner, Maggie of The Other Side of 50!!!

While traveling for work this week, I had the opportunity to read a lot of the cookbook. After reading. I am even more jazzed about creating the recipes from this book. I love the tips and hints Francois shares in the book.

Creme Brulee is one of my go to desserts. I love to make it and it's a dessert I like to order when in a restaurant. Since, I also love chocolate, I thought it only fitting that our first creation would be Chocolate Creme Brulee. If you don't have the book yet and need the recipe, send me an e-mail, juliemogler AT and I will send it to you.

Be sure to add the logo to your site and post on the 30th. I've also posted a P & Q for this month's recipe on the site.

The November recipe will be chosen by Karen of Karen's Cookie's Cakes & More. The December recipe will be chosen by Joanne of Apple Crumbles. Please e-mail me your choices and I will post them on the site.

Thanks for joining me in exploring the world of chocolate. I think we are going to have a great time and enjoy some fabulous desserts in the process.

Happy Chocolate Creations!!!
