TWD: Brioche SnailsMarch 18, 2008 at 10:59 pm | Posted in Breads, Chocolate, Tuesdays with Dorie | 17 Comments
Whew, my snails crawled in right at the last minute.
You may be wondering why raisins aren’t in the title … well, I’m a little raisined out and I’m tired of having to remember to keep baked goods away from the dog. As bad as chocolate is, I know my pooch needs a lot of chocolate before it hurts her, whereas a handful of raisins could kill her. So, I replaced one doggie deadly delight with another. I made Chocolate chip Brioche Snails.
Other than my dough not wanting to stop rising, which may be my own fault, I think there’s a slight possibility that I grabbed the rapid yeast instead of the active, everything went smoothly. I loved loved loved the pastry cream, at first I wasn’t sure about it, but a few tastes later, I was in love.
Once I tried my chocolate chip snails I realized I wanted a topping, but the glaze wasn’t sounding as good as drizzling some of the TCHO chocolate that came in the mail from Blake Makes on it. Boy oh boy is that chocolate yummy. Both my hubs and I loved the chocolate and I was itching to use it and it was a fantastic idea. MMmmm MMmmm good.
