I have been searching around here and saw the recipe for the Faux Bavarian Cream the ShirleyW has posted. I tried to PM her to ask a question but for some reason I just end up back on the home page everytime.
My question is, can I (and how do I) add chocolate to this recipe to make a chocolate filling variation? I don't want to use chocolate pudding if at all possible because for some reason I can taste it in anything (and i don't like it!)
I've never used this recipe before so I don't know what the texture is like and if it is possible to mix in melted chocolate. What do you think? Can I? How much do you think I should use? If I slowly add the chocolate do you think it will chunk up on me? HELP!
Well, I guess nobody has any ideas so I guess I'll just wing it and see what happens.
Shirley W is no longer on CC.
If you want to add melted choc., mix up a very, very little bit at a time so the choc. won't seize. Maybe you can mix choc ganache into the pudding
It has a mousse like texture. I sub the pudding flavors for what ever flavor mousse I want as a filling love it. I've never added anything else but I figured I would help with texture.
Thanks for the replies. I'll be trying out a batch today so I have time to do it different if I don't like it.
Well, I made some up but I did it a little differently than I had planned.
I used the big box of pudding (5.? ozs) so I doubled everything else but I also added 1/3 cup cocoa powder. It took about 7 TBS of water to get to a thick paste consistency.
After I had whipped the pastry pride I added 1 TBS of Kahlua flavored DaVinci's coffee syrup and 1 TBS of strong black coffee. I blended it all together and....
OH.....MY......WORD!!!!! It was fantastic! I'm having trouble not eating it! lol Thanks for the help, now I have my filling.
