I had a horrible chocolate monkey on my back last night.
There was no chocolate in the house, and it was pouring buckets and lightning, so I couldn't go get some. It got so bad, that I tried to make my own. I bug out a container of Ghiradelli cocoa powder, some powdered sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla, and tried to make my own. It went from chocolate milk, to chocolate sludge, to something close to frosting, to something kind of like fudge.
I didn't think I was going to be able to get much more powdered sugar into the mix, so I scooped it onto a sheet of buttered wax paper and chucked it in the freezer to firm up. After a half hour, it was firm, but not solid. It tasted kind of like fudge, but it was still kind of grainy. It was chocolatey enough, but almost too sweet. It's still in the fridge, waiting for the monkey to come back.
