Sometimes All We Need Is A Little {Chocolate}

Ok, so I’m a complete Chocolate Fanatic!! Have always been….will always be! Over the years, my taste for Chocolate has grown from loving anything and everything that even remotely looked/tasted like Chocolate, to becoming a Chocolate Snob of sorts. These days, I tend to crave a more refined, dark & deeply flavored Chocolate. On most days a square or two of Dark Chocolate from one of my favorite brands (Green & Black’s, for example) is enough to tide me over until the next day. Sometimes (ok, fine – OFTEN) though, I feel the urge to indulge and have a truly refined Chocolate Dessert. In this case, nothing satisfies me more than a perfectly  rich Dark Chocolate Tart – preferably with a nice layer of Caramel Glaze on top! There, I said it.

The Tart pictured above has the perfect ratio of crust/filling/glaze. Using edible Gold Leaf to decorate this tart is a very simple way to glam it up. I like baking these in small, individual tart forms rather than making one big tart, but either way is divine.

Recipe for the Crust & Filling Here, and for the Caramel Glaze Here.

Have fun with your Chocolate!

  1. Have you ever gone to the International Chocolate Show when it goes to New York? It’s amazing. The air is thick with it and free samples everywhere from chocolatiers all over the world!

  2. Have you tried the Lindt Excellence with a touch of Sea Salt? It’s a little piece of heaven, the perfect combination of sweet, bitter, salty and smooth! Per their website: “And their unique LINDT EXCELLENCE creation will surprise your taste buds with an unexpected alliance of nicely bitter, silky dark chocolate refined with tiniest crystals of “Fleur du Sel” – the flower, or the crown of the sea salt.”


      • Sara,I have question.My hair color is dark brown/black. I want to dye my hair into dark red / burdgnuy. I don’t want to bleaching my hair.I want to use permanent dye. I live in Indonesia. Commonly available brands are L’oreal and Garnier. Do you have any suggestions, what color suit me? And which products are right for me and should I use?I also want to have a few streaks/highlights in my hair with bright colors. Such as blonde, or whatever fits.I don’t know if it matters, but my skin is yellow Asia. So it might be to adjust the color of my hair.Thank you so much

      • If the person was your frneid, they would probably be happy to hear from you. It would be a pleasant surprise to reconnect.If they don’t reply, it could be the wrong email address or an email address that they no longer use.I use it every day.

  3. Oh my! This post is making me crave chocolate. I’m also a chocolate fanatic and love a classic chocolate cake with chocolate icing. I now have a sudden urge to bake a cake!
