The more I look at the chocolate mousse the more I think that come Halloween I'll make big turds with Boston Baked Beans candy coated peanuts and Candy Corn in them.
Now how can I make them stink? Rub the plate with unwashed chitlins? Nah, too unsanitary... Ideas?
Is there some non-toxic edible chemical that smells bad?

Vieux Boulogne cheese
Durian fruit
Stinky tofu

Bravo my friend, that looks amazing!

I dabble a little bit with chocolate, but that is a tale for another time.
I tempered some chocolate and made home made reeses cups a while back along with a chocolate bar that had cereal in it. Reeses are to die for! :D

Thanks to everyone for the views, replies and likes.

Tonight I have to make two,
'Frozen Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pies'
for my daughter's fourteenth birthday tomorrow.

One day soon I'll get around to making,
Dark Chocolate Mousse with Salted Caramel.
Or maybe do a Smoked Gruyere and Apples in Puff Pastry.
Or my Cream Cheese and Cherry Danish.

Those look great.

My Mother-n-Law makes a Reese's Cup variant that I dearly love.
Crunchy peanut butter sandwiched between two Ritz crackers and covered in milk chocolate.
The added crunch and saltiness of the Ritz is freaking killer.

That sounds awesome!
Something I learned when doing these homemade reeses.
If you buy "natural" peanut butter the oil is usually sitting on top. You can pour that out and get the grainier/drier peanut butter like in the actual candy bar. Makes life a little easier too with the candy making vs buying plain non-natural options.

Just a little tip there so you don't have oil coming out everywhere unexpectedly :D

Just send the Hoochie Coochie girl to lure me out and I'll be a lamb following the shepherd.

You can reverse it right now if you eat and drink within a proper diet.
I highly recommend you do this before the Doc proclaims you an actual diabetic... Wish I had.
Me too, sent my A1C to 11.1 when I was diagnosed at 37.. Getting up 5 times a night to piss, always thirsty, blurry vision. Can't believe I missed the classic symptoms, actually failed a life insurance test to find out.

Dude you are killing it with the desserts! Bookmarked this one. I’ll most definitely be keto’ing this up in the next couple weeks.
