food recipe: MOCKING CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Mocking Chocolate Mousse

A recipe shared by my brother-in-law… this dessert is so easy to do with easy to find ingredients as well. It’s quite experimental but has the potential to make you crave for eat. More than your sweet dessert, it can also be your midnight snack while watching movies with family and friends.

It’s not technically chocolate mousse based on the ingredients used. Yet, we used some ingredients quite similar to the real thing but not exactly. That’s why I decided to call it the “Mocking Chocolate Mousse”. It has three layers but the main ingredient is chocolate. We did not use any dark chocolate but instead, we alternate it with a chocolate brownie. There’s no egg or whipped cream present but there’s an ice cream that takes place. Anyway, before anything else… here’s how.

Ingredients:

Chocolate Syrup

Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Ice Cream (but any flavor will do depending on your choice)

Procedure:

1. Drizzle chocolate syrup in a clean flat plate. You can be artistic and form some abstract in drizzling for presentation.

2. Slice a single brownie horizontally in half. Preheat in the oven for 3-5 minutes. Then, lay it on top of the drizzled chocolate syrup on plate.

3. Scoop an ice cream and put it on top of the sliced brownie. Then serve. Enjoy!

food moment: ICE SCRAMBLE a.k.a. “ISKRAMBOL”

When I was a kid during my elementary years… one of my favorite food that I usually buy after school that was sold in food carts placed in a styrobox along the street near the entrance of the campus is… the famous “iskrambol”.

“Iskrambol” is a slang term derived from the word “Ice Scramble”, a shortcut street call per sé. It is the Filipino version of slurpee or slushy made of shaved ice and which is usually in bright pink color. Sometimes, This sweet street food is commonly topped with chocolate syrup with sugar caramel and powdered milk.

As time flies, “iskrambol” evolved into something classy and with many choices of toppings aside  from the said syrup. New toppings such as marshmallows, pinipig and colorful candy sprinklers. You can now enjoy it in different colors as well such as yellow, orange and green. Presently, it is already being sold in malls and open for franchising in many brand names to choose from. Definitely a yummy and an affordable treat to beat the heat of the sun.
