Chocolate Cheese

chocolate cheeseContinuing with our series on health food...you know it, you've seen it next to the Black Truffle Sheep's Milk, yes boys and girls, it's chocolate cheese.
My first encounter with this touch of evil was at an Arena cheese shop on the way to the American Players Theatre. What better way to get cultured than with a hunk of chocolate cheese? Get it, cultured?
Chocolate cheese is in reality chocolate fudge made with cheese: cream cheese, cheddar, white stilon. The slab in question was made with cheddar.
Brennan's Chocolate Cheese Fudge is savory with an unmistakable bite of cheddar. It's not too sweet, and verges on a pleasant tartness nestled in creamy cocoa. I'd prefer larger pieces of walnut.
Brennan's always has incredible cheeses and whatnot awaiting the indulgent sampler. There aren't many places that will intice you with Maple Syrup Cheddar and cranberry mustard.
Have some chocolate cheese for breakfast, dunk a hunk in your midday mochachino. It also comes in loaf and brick form. The kind of brick you'd wrap in your cholesterol results and throw through your doctor's window.

What, none made with Venezuelan Beaver Cheese?

When the chocolate cheese curds chase me in my nightmares tonight, I will be prepared with some nice carrot swords or candy swizzle sticks to protect me from this evil evil thing.

Pelt them with cheese curds.

wow, this is so weird! i've often joked about combining chocolate & cheese as they are two of my favorite things... and there is the curious line between cheese & chocolate fondue...

Hi Connie,
This hunk o' chocolate cheese was sitting next to the Wild Blueberry and Chardonnay Cheddar and pretty easy to find around these parts.
I was suprised how many people were into chocolate covered bacon when I did a search. Now that is taking it too far.
I wouldn't suggest either if you want to keep fitting into one less jean size. Good for you!

It is good, but not something you'd want to make a steady diet of.
The Middleton Sentry grocery store carried it in their cheese case at one time and it was less expensive and just as yummy.
