So, I kinda figured you’d all need another chocolate recipe for Christmas. Because, you know, you may not have had your share of holiday treats yet and by all means, you need ta get your sweet tooth on.
I love chocolate. Well, let’s break that down. I love chocolate. But good chocolate. Good dark chocolate and raw cacao nibs. I think I could be happy just spending the day with some chocolate alone. But I won’t because my belly wouldn’t be too happy with that. It’d be asking for zucchini. So, then I’d just drizzle some dark chocolate over roasted zucchini.
But for now, enter dark chocolate bark. It’s sweet, it’s rich and has enough dark chocolate to completely knock your lil’ socks or mittens off.
And wait till you try this organic maple sugar. Seriously; it blew my mind. I am ready to order it by the dozen because it makes everything taste amazing. Yes, everything.
