  1. wow! dark chocolate SOUP? sounds so new to me! :)

  2. Hi Shirley, very interesting recipe but it look heavenly. Excellent pictures, the other 2 gourmet dishes look mouthwatering.

    Have a wonderful week ahead.

  3. I've heard of chocolate ganache, chocolate sauce, but Chocolate soup? Really new but from the picture, it kind of looked interesting, and especially with the added espresso, chocolate with coffee.... mmmm ... yummy!

  4. Wow - This looks so good ... Could eat it right now :-)

  5. Shirley, this is my kinda soup -- chocolately, espresso-y, YUM! (Almost like a "mousse" soup?) Quick question... is the cardamom added to the chocolate mixture or the espresso? Will watch for your reply -- this is VERY intriguing!

    1. Kimby, Cardamom used here is interesting for me as the ingredient is more common in Indian cooking in Asia, altho it's also popular adding it in coffees or bakes etc. Thks for the heads-up, Kim! This recipe is from Chef Diego; I'll add it in. As Cardamon is rather versatile, u can add it at Step 4 or simply sprinkle it over the dessert, just as some would put over a salad. Hope this helps :)

    2. Shirley, I appreciate your reply. I've only used cardamom in rice pudding and my Grandma's bread recipe, so this will be a new flavor adventure for me. Thanks to you and Chef Diego for sharing this exceptional dessert!

    3. Kim, sounds really nice to have it in pudding too! Looking fwd to your adventure!

  6. Chocolate soup sounds absolutely intriguing!
