Chocolate Samosas – hardly a recipe!
You don’t need a recipe to make these Chocolate Samosas! I know that by saying this, I am shooting myself in the foot, because this is after all a recipe blog and why would you be here if it was not for my easy do-able recipes. Good news, this IS an easy do-able recipe and you will be ever so popular at your next dinner party!
When I said at the beginning of this week that I will, on recommendation of a very dear friend and mentor, do a lot less blogging and a lot less socializing (Facebook and Twitter) I had no idea how addicted I have become and how much I will miss you lot, but I have a load of work and writing that require my attention, so I have to abstain for while at least. With all the writing and planning, time for cooking and making my children’s favorite sweet treats is also limited and this recipe was born out of sheer necessity to make a quick and easy dessert snack for my darling sweet tooth son!
As I have said, there is no need for a recipe, simply an idea that works. If you master the art of making chocolate samosas, you can try different sweet fillings, such as apple, custard, caramel or even combine two ingredients such as banana and caramel. Come to think of it….. that makes it a Banofee Samosa! Brilliant idea, I think I will try it myself!

1 x 100gr Lindt Chocolate – the orange flavor makes a perfect after dinner samosa

Break the chocolate in its 10 blocks. Place 1 block at the one end of the samosa wrapper and start folding it.

Heat enough oil in a pan to deep fry and when the oil is hot, but not smoking, add the samosas and fry very quickly on both sides until they are a light golden brown in color. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on kitchen toweling to get rid of excess oiliness. Serve immediately with a dusting of icing sugar and a smooth espresso!
