All things chocolate! Part 2

Have you ever slept in a room created from chocolate??? With a chocolate mosaic wall and chocolate furniture? 
Well, Godiva created one for a contest:

Godiva created the most amazing chocolate paradise! a room filled with all of a chocolate-lover’s dream, in the the Bryant Park Hotel NY.

The creating included: a full-walled mosaic compose of  chocolates, chocolate artworks were hang on the walls, and two huge chocolate statues were placed in the dining room. The rest of the room was decorated with  more chocolate treats.

This was a prize by Godiva for their annuel Valentine’s Day sweepstakes. The winners of this prize will enjoy the one in a life time suite

And here is a video of the suite!:

I found a lot of other stuff made of chocolate, but I thought that you might find the next idea as really easy, cool and fun to do, and there is also a tutorial! on how to create- Mini chocolate hamburgers!

So, how can you make these mini chocolate hamburgers?
For the burgers:
use chocolate discs (dark or milk)

For the buns:
make these cookies:
7 ounces of butter, at room temp.
5.3 ounces sifted flour
5.3 ounces cup sifted white cornflour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
3.5 ounces of confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place in a mixing bowl the butter, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla extract and beat for several minutes using the flat beater, until you reach a smooth cream.
Gradually add the flour, cornflour and baking powder and mix until combined.
Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Turn on the oven to 350 F/175 C

Create balls from cookie dough, for ½ of the balls make sure the ball isn’t wider than the chocolate discs; flatten them just a bit. For the second half, use just half the amount of cookie dough and flatten the ball to create a round disc. Thus creating 2 parts of the bun, top and bottom.
Both cookie types should be about the same diameter, and just a tad larger than the chocolate discs.

Brush the cookies that are rounded on top, lightly with egg white; spread some sesame seeds on each one.

Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Place a flat cookie, a chocolate disc on top of it and a rounded dome shaped cookie on top of the chocolate.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, be careful not to burn the cookies!, let cool fully and enjoy your chocolate maple mini burgers!

I hope you enjoyed me summer glimps to the chocolate dreams in this world

Til next time
Cake away
