Chef’s Recipe: Choumicha’s Chocolate Fekkas

Tuesday, 16 October 2012 | Tags: , , , ,

On our amazing trip to Morocco for an episode of Anna & Kristina's Grocery Bag, we had the fabulous pleasure of meeting (and cooking for) one of Morocco's most famous celebrity chefs, Choumicha. She shared with us her delicious recipe for these chocolate treats!

Prep Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 2 hours and 55 mins


250g dark chocolate 
40g butter 
100ml cream 
25g walnuts, roasted and coarsely crushed 
30g raisins, chopped into little pieces 
50g candied orange peel, thinly chopped 
For decoration: 80g roasted almonds coarsely crushed


Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (double boiler). Stir in the butter and cream until well blended. Remove from the heat and mix in the walnuts, raisins and orange peel.

Refrigerate for 2 hours until the paste is firm. Shape the paste into long sausages and roll on the crushed almonds. Wrap them in plastic wrap and set them aside in the fridge again for 30 min.

Before serving, cut the sausages diagonally in 5cm long pieces. Place the chocolate fekkas in paper crates (e.g. cupcake liners) or cake moulds for presentation.

    Oops there is an error on your recipe that the guest gave you…on the ingred. list you left out walnuts. Looks delicious though thank you. Love love love your show, I set timers every time it is on, and watch it twice in a day.
