Onboard Holland America Line

We Love Chocolate

This class began with a primer on the various types of chocolate and how they add flavor and texture to recipes. We showed you how to chop and melt chocolate for two amazing recipes—chocolate pots de crème and our unbelievably chewy brownies. Then we taught you the tricks to achieving a smooth, creamy custard and explained how fat held the key to texture in our chewy brownies.

Pots de Crème

Forget the water bath and slow baking. We found a way to make this classic French chocolate custard faster, simpler, and better.


Chewy Brownies

Our chewy brownies are full of gooey pockets of melted chocolate that round out their complex flavor.
