Chocolate Covered Garlic

If I was going to roast garlic, I might as well cover some in chocolate to put on top of garlic cupcakes.

Ingredients

  • 6 heads of garlic I only covered some of them in chocolate, I used others in my garlic cupcake recipe
  • a few tablespoons of oil I used hazelnut
  • 1/4 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 T unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.
  • Put each garlic head in foil and place them in a cupcake tin, as shown above.
  • Drizzle a couple teaspoons of oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated.
  • Drizzle each head with honey.
  • Close the foil over each head.
  • Bake at 400 F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  • Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. Use a small knife to cut the skin slightly around each clove. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
  • Melt the chocolate chips with the butter in a double boiler or the microwave.
  • Dip each clove of garlic in chocolate. I thought it looked best to only cover half of the clove.
  • Place chocolate covered garlic on parchment paper and place in the refrigerator to cool.
