Q: I recently received a bag of “Schokonudeln” (chocolate noodles). I hate to let anything go to waste, so I’m determined to make something out of these.

I don’t think they’re sweet. The ingredient list is simply durum semolina, eggs-20%, and cocoa powder-6%. I thought about making some variation of Cincinnati chili, although these aren’t spaghetti noodles. Of course, if they turn out to be sweetened, it may be hard to do a savory dish. Any thoughts?

Editor: Based on the ingredients, I’m also thinking these noodles are unsweetened. If so, your idea to make Cincinnati chili sounds really fabulous. A really hearty beef or lamb ragu would also work really well with such savory noodles.

Or you could also go in a completely different direction! Apparently a traditional way to cook schokonudeln is to simmer them in milk with a little sugar and vanilla to make a comforting dessert. You could give this a try, or take it one step further and make a sweet noodle kugel.
