Actually, I can see that working. I'd think you'd need to use high-cocoa content chocolate (70% or above), and mild sauerkraut. It would add both texture and moisture, and probably a tang.

And let me be the nth person to state that aspic is disgusting. It was served at my BIL's mother's funeral (apparently she was very fond of tomato aspic, and had served canned tomato aspic frequently when her children were little). I only tasted it because I'd never seen it before. I hope I never see it again.

As for the chopped liver salad, calves' or lamb's liver would probably also be good, Thorny. When I was a small child, my parents served lamb's liver, and I must have liked it because I was a very stubborn child and I would remember if I had hated it and been forced to eat it.

It would be different if this was making something like an alfredo sauce.
Thank you for clarifying! Yeah, that definitely fits with the kidn of recipes I mentioned in the OP, where you wonder if the recipe writer actually tested the recipe out before publishing it...
