Qalat Daqqa Chocolate “Kielbasa”

  • Related Items

This recipe was inspired by the chocolate kielbasa in Kachka, a cookbook from the Portland, Oregon restaurant of the same name. We first tried it at a Tom Douglas Cookbook Socials and were instantly taken with the unique recipe. Don’t be turned off by the unusual name! Think of it as the best fudge you never knew you needed in your life.

Of course, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to play with the recipe, adding some spices and dried fruit for a bit more texture and flavor. Qalat Daqqa, also known as Tunisian Five Spice, is one of our most underused blends. It’s great as a rub or in stews and tagines, but absolutely sublime in sweet applications pairing especially well with anything chocolate. This is a great recipe to make for holiday giving or for parties. It’s easy to make, and you can finish it the day before you need it.
