Crashing with chocolate

Let’s talk about Tuesdays. Tuesday is my busy day this semester. On top of the busy day I have a class that goes from 5 pm til 9 pm. After walking home there are only so many things I want to do. They generally involve a magazine, a drink, and dessert. Last night was a banner night because I had all three.

The Hollywood issue was in my mail box. Why hello Jake, Ryan and James. You look dashing.

I poured a glass of Pinot Noir.

And I broke into this…

I decided it was finally time to try Pure Dark Chocolate. I got the chocolate for free as part of the Foodbuzz Taste Makers program. While the chocolate was free the opinions expressed here are truthful and my own.

I decided to brake off a piece of the bark AND the slab. I told you, banner night at the LCC casa. Both chocolates are dark, 60%, and each package has two servings (I didn’t have a full serving of either last night).

Slab on the top left and the rest is bark.

First I had the slab. Personally, I love dark chocolate. Even like really, really dark chocolate. Compared to other dark chocolates it was smoother and less intense. Overall I recommend it if you want something to supplement raw almonds as an afternoon snack or just for general after dinner noshing. I like to have a little chocolate after dinner to satisfy my sweet tooth.

My favorite though? The bark!

The bark had cherries, almonds, and caramelized cacao bits. Oh yes. The chocolate is just as smooth as the slab but with the sweetness of the cherries, light bitterness of the cacao and the nuttiness? Fantastic. Hit the spot after a long day.

Paired with a glass of wine and my new Vanity Fair full of new articles? Perfection.
