I've been making chocolate lava cakes and they start to get boring after a while. I'm going to try to bake soft cookies now to see if I can find a cookie recipe with a soft cookie texture so does anybody know any things where instead of just pure chocolate I can make a cookie crusting for the chocolate lava cakes? Just a small amount to press against the sides and bottom. Usually serve it with vanilla ice-cream.

Hi All, My sister is making a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory project for school, and I want to make a real flowing chocolate river. I understand it would be very difficult to do this with real chocolate, so I was thinking I could use chocolate milk. Anyone have any idea on how I could do this? Maybe something with a little tank underneath and a water pump in it or something. The box we are creating this is is a plastic shoebox, but only half of it can be used for the river.

Is there a way to preserve chocolate- as in for an art piece?

I make chocolate art pieces and I am looking for a way to mount one on a wall.  I put a couple of the pieces in an art show into plexiglass frames but they had to sit tabletop.  Maybe encased in resin, but I would need a cold resin so as not to melt the chocolate.  Below is a photo of some of my chocolate art I would like to preserve/encase and mount on the wall but I really don't know how! This photo looks wall-mounted but again, it was shot tabletop.

2 New home-made chocolate ideas I have (sort of) come up with!

I have just been inspired by the Peanut Butter Cup recipes, to make some for my family.. but I decided, that since some people have nut allergies, I would make some filled with Lemon Curd... a little odd, but it works... they are cooling at the moment.. but I had a sneaky taste of one! but I ran out of Lemon Curd (only had 3 teaspoons of it!) so I rumaged in the freezer, and found some frozen raspberries from last years harvest! basically I crushed 3 into each muffin paper, and covered in molten chocolate... I think these are even nicer... (instructable being written.. will have to photograph batch 2!!) Has anybody got any other interesting chocolate recipes??

Finding that perfect brownie

Ok, I have tried and tried and I need some assistance from the Instructable community. My favorite brownies in the world are Ghirardelli's Triple Chocolate Brownie mix. It's a delicious chocolatey blend with 3 different chocolate chips inside (semisweet, milk and bittersweet/dark). The batch comes dry and you add 1/3 oil, 1/3 cup water (though I use coffee), and 1 egg for a 8x8 pan of brownies. My issue is I want to figure out how to make these from scratch. As much as I love them, I'm a scratch kind of girl and I just don't feel like I can call a recipe mine if I'm using a box mix. There's tons of brownie recipes online but none that seem similar. I figured out that the dry mix must obviously have their cocoa powder in it, but I can't find a recipe that has you add egg, oil and water to a dry mix. Many of the recipes I found have you melt one of the chocolates into your chocolate batter, rather than use cocoa powder, but I don't think Ghirardelli does that, unless I'm wrong. And if they did, how would it come as a dry mix? Others might have used powder but then they call for a lot of butter instead just a 1/3 cup of oil. Are there any brownie experts who can figure this one out for me?

Dipped spoon recipe (to stir in coffee).

I would like to find a flavorful dipped spoon recipe for Christmas gift giving.  I have seen the chocolate dipped spoons (with only chocolate and a sprinkling of mint candy or nuts).  I would prefer something with a bit more flavor.  I would add an extract (rum, orange, vanilla, etc.) but I think the chocolate has to harden and adding anything may prevent this from happening.  Any ideas?
