Quince Volcano with Chocolate Lava

Quince Volcano with Chocolate Lava

Our absolute highlight of this autumn is a top-class divine dessert.

Those of you who love to eat healthy, but also enjoy feasting and savoring; should definitely give it a try.

This year's season served us with a delicious pile of golden yellow quinces.
Quinces from the own garden are a true blessing.

We are fortunate to still have one of these beautiful trees in our backyard.

The fruit with its unique smell brings fragrant memories of past fall times into our house.
Every season we pick a bowl of quinces just to enjoy the wonderful smell.

Already Hildegard von Bingen knew about the healing effect of this delicious fruit.
She recommended it for gout and rheumatism problems.

And on top of this, it provides us with a lot of iron, vitamin C and a high content of fiber.

This year we did not only want to process the quinces into puree or bread; but we wanted to come up with something special for the past weekend.


A combination of fruit and chocolate.

The core of our quince volcano consists of a delicious chocolate mousse and the lava of a chocolatey cashew-sauce.
Of course, the volcanic rocks on the basis of nuts cannot be missed.


How do you find this chocolate seduction of a special kind?

Actually, it would be the perfect dessert for a Christmas meal. But until then it still takes a while and I'm sure there will be tons of new ideas in our heads.


With this, I also want to praise the creative gang of my four men in the house.
Without you, the flavorful creations would not be what they are, the names of the dishes would be unimaginative, the photos probably not as good and without your appetite, it would be much less funny 😀.
Thanks that you exist!!!


Have a wonderful week!
