Like It or Not

I have a friend who really does not crave chocolate.  She rarely even thinks about it!  Especially not when she is stressed, or depressed, or lonely, or unhappy, or excited, or celebrating.  Upon rare occasions, she can be coaxed into trying a few bites of something chocolate if that something has a sterling reputation.  Unlike the rest of the world that knows when you want chocolate it's ok to go for the M & M's if you don't have the gourmet chocolate in the house.

I have another friend who understands the chocolate cravings and surprised me with this little treat last week. She was also willing to share this Rachel Ray Recipe.

1 cup quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons Kahlua (may substitute liquor of choice)
1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute
pinch of salt
1/3 cup cream
1/3 cup water

Add first 5 ingredients to food processor.  Chop for 1 minute or until chips are broken up.
Heat cream and water to boiling. (can be done in glass container in microwave)
With the food processor going, stream in the hot cream/water mixture.  This melts the chocolate and cooks the egg.
Process about 2 more minutes until the chocolate is melted.
Pour into 4 demitasse cups or equivalent containers.
Refrigerate 2 hours (4 is better so a preplanned crisis is advised when using this remedy)
Garnish with whipped cream, nuts, or whatever sounds good to you.

Let me know if this is a recipe for solving all your problems.
