Ginger, Cherry, Apricot and Nut Chocolates Recipes

Ginger, Cherry, Apricot and Nut Chocolates

Ingredients Ginger, Cherry, Apricot and Nut Chocolates :

White of 1 egg,
2 tablespoonfuls of cold water,
Sifted confectioner’s sugar,
Almond or rose extract,
Preserved ginger,
Candied cherries,
Candied apricots,
Halves of almond,
Halves of pecan nuts,
½ a pound of Baker’s “Dot” Chocolate.

Step Ginger, Cherry, Apricot and Nut Chocolates :

Use the first four ingredients in making uncooked fondant. (Caramel syrup is a great addition to this fondant, especially if nuts are to be used. Use three tablespoonfuls of syrup and one tablespoonful of water with one egg white instead of the two tablespoonfuls of water indicated in the recipe). Work the fondant for some time, then break off little bits and wrap around small pieces of the fruit, then roll in the hollow of the hand into balls or oblongs. For other candies, roll a piece of the fondant into a ball, flatten it with the fingers and use to cover a whole pecan or English walnut meat. Set each shape on a plate as it is finished. They will harden very quickly. Dip these, one by one, in Baker’s “Dot” Chocolate and set on an oil cloth.

Meringue Pudding & Chocolate Almond Recipe

COCOA MERINGUE PUDDING

Ingredients Meringue Pudding :

1 cup of milk,
2 eggs (yolks),
2 tablespoonfuls of flour,
Pinch of salt,
4 teaspoonfuls of Baker’s Cocoa,
3 tablespoonfuls of sugar,
½ a teaspoonful of vanilla.

Step Meringue Pudding :

Put the milk in the upper part of the double-boiler, and heat. Mix flour and cocoa together and soften in a little cold milk; mix until free from lumps.

When mixture in double-boiler has cooked sufficiently, strain it over the mixture in the bowl. Put back in double-boiler and allow it to cook one or two minutes (stirring constantly), just enough to slightly thicken the eggs. Remove from the stove, and when cool add vanilla and put in the serving-dish. Cover with a meringue. Place dish on a board, put in the oven with the door open, and allow it to remain there for ten or fifteen minutes, and when the meringue will not stick to the fingers, close the door and let it brown slightly. This pudding can be eaten warm or cold, but is much better cold. This will serve four persons generously.

3 cups of granulated sugar,
1 cup of cream,
2 squares of Baker’s Chocolate,
3 cups of pecan nut meats.

Marbled Fudge Recipe

Marbled Fudge

Ingredients Marbled Fudge :

2 cups of granulated sugar,
¼ a cup of glucose (pure corn syrup),
1 ½ cups of cream,
1 tablespoonful of butter,
2 squares of Baker’s Chocolate, scraped fine or melted,
2 teaspoonfuls of vanilla.

Step Marbled Fudge :

Stir the sugar, glucose and cream over a slack fire until the sugar is melted; move the saucepan to a hotter part of the range and continue stirring until the mixture boils, then let boil, stirring every three or four minutes very gently, until the thermometer registers 236° F., or, till a soft ball can be formed in cold water. Remove from the fire and pour one-half of the mixture over the chocolate. Set both dishes on a cake rack, or on something that will allow the air to circulate below the dishes. When the mixture cools a little, get some one to beat one dish of the fudge; add a teaspoonful of vanilla to each dish, and beat until thick and slightly grainy, then put the mixture in a pan, lined with waxed paper, first a little of one and then of the other, to give a marbled effect. When nearly cold turn from the pan, peel off the paper and cut into cubes.
