Although I am not a huge lover of chocolate, I have to admit We Should Cocoa is one of my favourite challenges. In the past few years I've participated in We Should Cocoa by submitting sweet recipes such as Chocolate and Lime Halva; White Chocolate Banoffee Roulade; and Courgette and Apricot Muffins. For those of you unfamiliar with We Should Cocoa - a chocolate challenge. This is a monthly cooking event created by Choclette of Chocolate Log Blog and Chele of Chocolate Teapot a few good years ago. The idea is to create something each month with chocolate. It can be a sweet dish or a savoury one. You can use any kind of chocolate or cocoa substance, but it must include the specially selected ingredient chosen by the host. Well guess what?! Today I am ever so excited to announce that this month I will be hosting We Should Cocoa and its your turn to participate.
The ingredient that I have chosen will be absolutely no surprise to those of you who have been reading my blog - its MANGO. For those of you who don't know the background, well 'Mangocheeks' used to be my blogger pseudonym, before I shared my real name Shaheen a couple of years ago.
Anyway, back to the We Should Cocoa Challenge. You can use fresh mango, dried mango, tinned mango, pureed mango and so on. Make absolutely anything you like as long as it incorporates both chocolate and mango.
If you haven't done so already, you can also check out last months We Should Cocoa challenge set by Choclette using honey. Follow this link for the Honey and Chocolate Round Up and some inspiration.
Simply link your recipe by the 25th of May to the linky below.
