Description

Adding beets to chocolate desserts may seem like an odd thing to do, but the deep red color of the root vegetable just makes these desserts look that much more chocolatey. Plus, you don't so much taste "beets" as a more complex flavor that's somehow sweet but also more nuanced than that. No one need know the secret ingredient, but it's great fun to spill the beans once you are asked for the recipe.

  • 300 grams beets (peeled)
  • 300 grams 70% cacao chocolate
