Lindt Arabica Intense Dark Chocolate

A little gift from Christmas, I resisted the temptation to open it right away and kept for later.  It is now later...

It is dark Chocolate at 47% with Arabica Coffee.  I have half a piece at a time.  Smooth and the Arabica is intense as the title says.  But not so bitter like 70% Chocolate for example.  The slight sugar in the chocolate is perfectly balanced to let the coffee shine.  Let it melt in your mouth, just like you should when having fine Chocolate.  Don't chew, that's reserved for chocolate cookies.

Hot cocoa with this?  It should be great, I'll give it a try and let you know.

Great if you crave coffee but want to stay away from too much caffeine, its only at 2% here.  The perfect Mocha in a Chocolate bar.

I would have this as an after dinner chocolate, after one of those fine cuisine dinners... not after your pizza :)

Lindt Creme Brulee

This Creme Brulee in a Chocolate bar is kinda perfect.  Its a little crunchy and decadent sweet, just one square for those cravings and we are good to go.  Enjoy it on its own, no hot cocoa making here, well, I haven't tried it.  If I don't have dessert I have this after dinner.  It is a milk Chocolate so kids will love it too, however I think adults would appreciate it more :)

Great as a little present.

I find this at my local supermarket here in New Zealand at Pak n' Save.  I found it online on Amazon too, you can get a whole case of 14 bars for $115.99.

And So It Begins!

Thrilled to be blogging about my favourite subjects, and they are edible too.

I hope I find you enjoying the holidays with a hot chocolate if you are in the north, or an ice coffee if you are in the south.

I thought I would start by getting inspired by a few images of deliciousness, just click on their source for the recipe if you are so inclined to bake or make.

I eat.  Mostly.

Find the recipe at toertchenzeit.de you might need to translate it to english with google unless you speak the language.. German?  Those chocolate roses all over are hypnotic.

Chocolate should be included in breakfast, Coffee gets all the credit, but I'm not complaining that's why Mocha was invented.

I tried this the other day, the blackberry comes through quite nicely.  I think it could be enjoyed best with a little milky sweet type cocktail, sip your cocktail then have a little bite.  I also made it as hot chocolate, you can either use light soy milk or regular milk.  Go extra and add half milk, half cream.  Keep in mind the blackberry seeds are present and will float on your cup, I ate them, but you can easily scoop them out.

Have a good evening.
