Since a picture speaks louder than words, we thought we’d share a few of the chocolate treats that are in store at Distinctive Inns of New England during American Chocolate Week, March 14 – 20, 2011. These images were provided by Jumping Rocks Photography, specializing in photography at inns and B&Bs.
Recipe of the Day: Chocolate Frangelico Torte from Rabbit Hill Inn
8 oz. shortening
12 oz dark, sweet chocolate, chopped
½ cup sugar
1/6 cup Frangelico (though other liqueurs may be used)
Melt shortening. Stir in chocolate. In a separate bowl, mix eggs and sugar. Add the liqueur. Combine the egg and liqueur mixture with the chocolate. Pour into a sprayed and papered 6”-7” cake pan. Bake at 350°F in a water bath. It will set like Jell-O when baking is complete.
