SWEET treat pioneers will today bask in their sugar-filled glory as they collectively celebrate World Chocolate Day – lots by tweeting photos of themselves, grinning, revealing the melted chocolate cemented in the crannies of their teeth.
In a bid to unite both sweet and savoury camps – the cause of the biggest worldly divide in history, only recently to be topped by Brexit – here are some chocolate savoury recipes you can try.
1. Chocolate pasta
Not an Italian classic, no, but who needs conventions anyway? Here is a chocolate fettuccine with peas and pancetta recipe that you should try.
2. Chocolate soup

5. Chocolate stew
Let’s slather more meat in the sweet, brown, good stuff. Try this beef and chocolate stew recipe.

The internet lost the plot at the announcement that McDonalds’s in Japan were launching fries drenched in chocolate sauce. Apologies for re-opening the wound, but maybe try out this sweet potato dessert fries recipe.
