I had a Hershey's chocolate bar. I needed to use it. I could only think of chocolate shavings--chocolate shavings that go on a chocolate mousse cake.
So I made a chocolate mousse cake, which I'd never made before. It just sounded good. It looked like this:
It took way too long to make (mix the dry ingredients, add the milk. bring to a boil on medium. let cool. mix with mixer until fluffy. fold in whipped cream). But it tasted amazing. It was even deserving of my cake pedestal that I pulled out of the box from the spare room.
Thank goodness we had friends to share it with.
I'd do it again if I had a good enough reason. It was worth it to celebrate the end of finals and graduation.
