Ps. This is Talita, not me, Priscilla! Maybe you guys will meet me soon;)
The mistery is over!! If you had the curiosity to know who the Chocorango's writter was, with this post I put an end on the suspense!
You can get to know a little about me, Talita, with this interview from RIC TV! Thank you for all the kindness and attention from all of you, from the camera man who recorded the interview, Diones, Maika, the reporter who is a lovely person! And all of you from "behind the scenes" that even showed me everything that goes on backstage.
The recording was done in my house and is an incentive to all of you! Even with a small kitchen like mine, there is no limit if you're passionate about what you do!
I hope you guys like the video, and please don't mind my shyness with the camera! All I can say is, I'm loving everything that has been happening in my life!!
Ps. Yes, my dear readers, chocolate does cause pimples!
This recipe was exclusively created for the Ver Mais show from Maringa, was suggested by Vanessa from RIC TV, who gave the idea of making something to take as a "to-go" snack. We soon thought of something that combined strawberries and chocolate, I thought it would be very appropriated. We added oatmeal to make the bars healthier and we must confess that the flavor surprised us, and it was a big success, everybody loved it!
Ps. Please forgive the sloppy picture, and not including the picture showing the filling.
1tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Oatmeal
350gr All-purpose flour
1 Eggs white
1tbsp Powdered sugar
1tbsp Cider vinegar
100gr Semi sweet chocolate melted
Start with the filling so it's cooled by the time to build the bars
1. Dice the strawberries and cook under low heat with the sugar and vinegar.
2. Cook for approximately 10 minutos. Let cool in room temperature or refrigerate.
3. Preheat oven to 355°F. Cover a large baking pan with parchment paper.
4. Cream butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat a little more.
5. Add the oatmeal and mix it. Mix in the flour just until combined. Do not over mix it.
6. Roll the dough in a well floured suface and using a clean ruller cut the dough into rectangles. Place a little bit of the filling in the center of each rectangle. Make sure you cut some rectangles a little bigger than the other to cover the dough with the filling. Brush the egg white on the bigger rectangles and place them over the smaller ones to seal the bars.
7. With that same ruller, cut the edges of the bars. Place on the previous prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool over a wire wrack and drizzle the melted chocolate to decorate.
Tips: The cider vinegar gives a special taste to the filling, but you can substitute for lemon juice.
You can use blackberries, raspberries even pineapples to make the filling.
Makes 20 bars.
