What is chutney?

What is chutney? A chutney recipe is a spicy or savory condiment originating in India. Chutney is made from fruits or vegetables in a sauce. 

I decided that a chocolate chutney recipe was needed. Most of the chutney recipes I have seen are usually like my Mango Chutney. I wanted more of a dessert chutney.

Dessert cups

If I was to make this chocolate chutney, what would I use it on? The answer came when I saw dessert cups in the store. 

Normally, you use dessert cups for Strawberry shortcake. What if we could do more than filling those spongy dessert cups with strawberries? That was the inspiration for me to come up with this chocolate almond topping.

Chocolate cherry

So I knew chocolate almond is a good combination and would be amazing in a chutney recipe. What about a chocolate cherry combination?

Chocolate cherry is a great combo. I have success with a chocolate cherry combo in my One Bowl Chocolate Cherry Brownies, which my co-workers devoured when I recipe tested with them.

 

Would a chocolate almond with cherries chutney recipe be the same? Would my coworkers be in love with this chocolate dessert? 

The answer was yes! This chocolate cherry recipe was amazing served in the dessert cups cakes. This dessert chutney recipe I came with was a real winner.

Plus, the chocolate almond topping is so simple that anyone can make it. You want to impress, then you should make this chutney recipe.
