This reminded me that I'd forgotten all about buying it! It's been one of those weeks. But I might give your suggestion a go, too.consider chilling it into logs (roll it into long tubes between a folded over piece of wax paper)...after chilling slice into medallions and then pan fry!
Ugh, I know how you feel. When I'm really desperate for chocolate, I will raid the baking chocolate (chocolate chips or baking chocolate) and pull something together to help tide me over until I can get to the store. Do you have cocoa powder in the kitchen? You could make some hot cocoa.I am craving chocolate and since no one in my family will let me know when they make a run to the store (they do it on purpose) that craving will not be met anytime soon. I need my chocolate! Grrrrrrrrr.
Punkin I do not have cocoa, but I am hoping that the chocolate chip cookie that I ordered along with the italian classic sandwich from Jimmy john's will help tide me over.Ugh, I know how you feel.

I've seen it shredded and made into hash browns..and I've seen it sliced thin and fried up like potato chips.I had jicama for the very first time today and am in love. It tastes like a cross between a sweet, fresh apple and a fresh carrot. I love finding things like this that I can take to work as a snack instead of opting for candy and such. It's high in vitamin C and is a mild anti-inflammatory, which makes it even better.
I tried making these a year ago Christmas, thanks to Bakerella inspiration, and I found they sort of disintegrated in the chocolate. Any hints?Starbucks is selling "cake pops" which is something that I've been making as Christmas treats for years (I just pass them off as homemade bonbons and forgo the stick). Soooo easy to make:
Bake a cake from a mix
Throw the cake into a large mixing bowl (break it into chunks once it has cooled)
Toss in just enough frosting to give the cake a consistency that allows for rolling the mixture into approximately 1" balls - freeze for a few hours
Melt chocolate with some heavy whipping cream mixed in and then dip the frozen chunks into the chocolate
Re-freeze until chocolate sets
Some, I roll in toasted coconut flakes or white chocolate shavings or cocoa/powdered sugar. The best I've managed to come up with are boxed mix chocolate cake, german chocolate frosting, dark chocolate dip & then rolled again in toasted coconut. Heavenly.
And a teeeeeeny fraction of the cost of the Starbucks pop, which is $1.50. I can make almost 100 of them with one box of cake mix, half a can of frosting, and a bag of chocolate chips.
The first few times I made them they were too dry and fell apart. They really need to be softened into an almost cookie dough consistency. Try adding more icing if they fall apart. Also when dipping they should be very cold... almost frozen.I tried making these a year ago Christmas, thanks to Bakerella inspiration, and I found they sort of disintegrated in the chocolate.
