I'm a huge fan of lemon curd, and I'm a huge fan of chocolate, so the idea that I could get the two together was fabulous. It was quite expensive, though, so I thought I might try my hand at making my own first.
I cunningly wrote down the ingredients from the back of the jar (only five ingredients - and all of them recognisable and pronounceable, as good food should be) and came home to see if I could find any recipes on the internet.
Alas, alack, the internet has let me down. I found recipes for chocolate curd cake, recipes for fruity chocolate curd with "curd" as one of the ingredients... well, that's not much use. The only thing I found that even faintly resembled what I was hoping for was this blog post with a recipe for white chocolate creme citron tarts. If I combine the ingredients list from the chocolate curd jar, and the instructions from the blog post, I might be able to make something resembling what I'm hoping for.
I'll keep you posted! I've never made any kind of preserve or spread before, but it doesn't look too complex. And if all else fails, I can always go back and buy that jar. Going without no longer seems like a valid option. Chocolate curd... mmmm...
