I hosted a potluck dinner some years ago, and I set the theme as "chocolate or garlic" -- guests were to bring one or the other. One person was a wiseacre and bought chocolate covered garlic. (It was hideously unpalatable.)

I've since wondered if there's any way to combine chocolate and garlic in the same dish where you taste both, or if the two flavors are simply incompatible.

    Did this have to be community wiki? It's potentially food-science. – user194 Jan 11 '11 at 23:14
  • Sure you can put them in the same dish, just put something else between them. – John Robertson Mar 26 '14 at 21:15

Roasted garlic will get a slightly sweet flavor, dipped in a chocolate fondue can be wonderful and I have seen a recipe for garlic chocolate chip cookies. http://www.food.com/recipe/garlic-chocolate-chip-cookies-28771

  • Definitely have to roast it. Roasted garlic is sweet and easily palatable all by itself. With a rich chocolate, it could be great. – Ocaasi Aug 22 '10 at 19:02
  • Should work also with caramelized garlic, what do you think? – nico Aug 9 '11 at 19:20

Sure! Most recipes for the darker Oaxacan moles will include both cocoa powder and garlic.

    I'm going to call this cheating, since there are few ingredients which aren't in a good mole. But true. – Ocaasi Aug 22 '10 at 19:01
  • +1 for enlightening me on the existence of Oaxacan mole, now I've just got to taste some! – Benjol Jan 12 '11 at 7:57
