Taste Test: VT Editor Gives Jason Mraz's Chocomole Two Thumbs Up!

 <em>VT</em> Editor Gives Jason Mraz's Chocomole Two Thumbs Up!

After building the VT webpage for Jason Mraz�s Chocomole recipe�part of my job as Web Editor�I couldn�t wait to find the time to whip up a batch!�

Truth be told, if I was packing for a trip into outer space and could only bring three things, they would be chocolate, avocados, and my husband. So, as soon as I stumbled upon ripe avocados at my local market, I ran around town like a crazy woman scavenging for the other two ingredients I didn�t already have in my kitchen: raw cocoa and dates

Ten bucks poorer, but rich with anticipation, I was ready to get cookin��or uncookin��I should say, since this is a raw dessert. While Mraz prefers Italian, Flamenco, or Reggae to put �a bounce over the cutting board,� I opted to rock out to some good old Grateful Dead tunes. I set my laptop on the counter, pulled up the recipe page, and got going.

His simple directions made the process a breeze and brought back childhood memories of making mud pies with my hands. Since I don�t own a kitchen mixer, I enlisted my husband to help with the stirring. When the Chocomole reached the right texture, we snuck a taste. Even at room temperature, it was phenomenal�avocado gone decadent.

It was time to pack the pudding neatly back into the avocado-bowls and top each with a few fresh raspberries. This part was a lot more fun than I expected, like wrapping a present you know you get to eat.

Hours later, after dinner, it was time to dig in. By this time, the desserts had chilled in their bowls. I tasted a spoonful. Two words adequately describe the experience: Holy Chocomole! This stuff is good.

Wow....loved the Jason Mraz interview and really looking forward to this recipe. I was a little skeptical at first, based on the ingredients, but this review makes it seem very worthwhile. Great Job VT!!!!

I've been making this for years now and it never gets old. You can process it in your ice cream maker as well! nancy http://testkitchenette.wordpress.com
