Hot Steamy Sexy – 50 Shades of Chocolate Book + Giveaway *WINNER ANNOUNCED*

To my loveliest Readers have you read Fifty Shades of Grey the erotic adult novel? I know it was huge last year and was a sell out, sales even surpassed JK Rowling’s Harry Potter books and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series.

I actually never got around to reading the book ~ My colleagues were obsessed and some finished it without days! While others said it was written quite badly and told me not to bother :P Having said that they’ve told me enough about the story line and I still don’t really understand the complex and absurd  relationship between Ana and Christian.

Anyhow, moving away from the Fifty Shades of Grey, have you heard or seen this book 50 Shades of Chocolate? ;) I first saw it in a news agency last year during my lunch break at work and couldn’t help but blush at some of the photos taken in this book, they were definitely raunchy, sexy and leaves a lot of room for imagination!

Chocolate

This is one of the more milder photos in the book :P It is written by Claire Preen the chocolatier and owner of Blue Mountain Chocolate Co in Sydney. In the book she shares her favourite chocolate recipes but also some more unique ones such as 6 aphrodisiac chocolate recipes :P and also Edible Chocolate Massage Body Oil.

I was recently sent a copy of 50 Shades of Chocolate and was also permission to share a recipe with you :) I wanted to keep the recipe G-rated so Mr Bao and I chose a Shamelessly Chocolatey Cheesecake. He did complain that the book was very distracting to cook with hahaha

50g milk chocolate buttons

Notes
*Recipe asked for tempered chocolate using the recipe in the book, but if you don’t have the book simply melt the chocolate in the microwave or a bain-marie.

Method
1) Either crumb biscuits and add 50g milk chocolate in a food processor or place biscuits and chocolate in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to ‘bash’ them into little pieces.

2) Tip crumbs into a bowl and add the melted butter. Combine using your fingertips, place and press crumb mixture into the bottom of a lined cake tin. Place in the fridge to set.

3) Beat the cream cheese, sugar and milk until it is velvety and smooth. Split the mixture in  between 2 bowls. Pour the white chocolate into one bowl and the dark chocolate into the other. Stir. Then gently fold the cream through the chocolate mixtures.

4) Pour your dark chocolate mixture over the biscuit base and freeze for 10 minutes. Lightly pour the white chocolate mixture onto the dark chocolate. Leave to set.

    at the moment I would say no, but with my husband going overseas for 2 weeks, I could possibly be interested in giving it a go when he gets back ;-)

      Thanks for letting me know about the chocolate facebook page link :( I’m trying to fix it but haven’t been able to find the correct link ~

      I had the same thought food and melted chocolate hmm maybe not who’s gonna do the washing :P

  4. hotlyspiced June 5, 2013 at 11:10 am Reply

    I might make it and give it away to someone but I’m not sure I’d like to use it. What about the mess? I have white sheets! Or maybe this is meant for those times when you’d prefer to roll around on the lino rather than lie in a comfortable bed! xx

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet June 6, 2013 at 9:43 am Reply

      Hahhaa good idea about making it but not using it Charlie :P Because I wouldn’t want to get my bed sheets dirty, I had washing them enough as it is can you imagine if I had to wash them because they have chocolate oil all over hehe xox
