When I’m stressed out, I like to bake. Baking can be quite therapeutic, especially when the end results are nice. Sadly, there were times my baking experiments turned out to be a total disaster.I was trying to bake a rich dark chocolate cupcake so I googled for the recipe online and got to work. The recipe wasn’t accurate. And in the end, I was left with a huge mess, and MORE STRESS!
Enter DOVE® Chocolate. It melts fairly quickly when you pop it in your mouth, giving you a taste of chocolate instantly. Every bite was smooth and creamy, and I reckon the smoothness comes from plenty of cocoa butter.
The other thing I liked about the chocolate is the silkiness of the bar, something not commonly found in consumer chocolates. These chocolates had a lasting finish, and gave me a longer “Mmmmmmm” feeling. It had that chocolate lava centre feel, but definitely less messy – I don’t have to clean up.
I found DOVE® Dark Chocolate to be less bitter than many others chocolates. Good thing is, it is easier to eat. Bad thing is, it is easier to eat! And knowing me, one bar isn’t enough.
The DOVE® Milk Chocolate had a strong dairy taste with a hint of vanilla. This was sweeter than the dark chocolate, so if you’re not a fan of sweet things, you would probably like the dark chocolate better.The other two chocolate flavours available are DOVE® Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut, Almond & Raisin and DOVE® Chocolate with Crispy Rice. While these were quite good, I preferred the DOVE® Dark Chocolate. Simple is always best, I believe.Now that I found an easier way to de-stress and have my “me-time”, I don’t think I would bake as often anymore. Sorry rif, you’ll have to get your cupcakes from the bakery! =P
