Finally made it into Cupcake Royale for the now-legendary "Deathcake", which is a killer quad shot of chocolate badness. And I mean bad like bad ass.
Had to split this goodie with Bridget. It was a treat to watch her face light up after taking that first sinful bite. Pity it's only available this time of year.
The love of my life gifted me with some Fran's chocolates, which are sublime. The assortment includes chocolate sprinkled with French salt. Hubby thinks that combo is plain awful. Like Pamela Anderson and Kidd Rock, they just do not belong together. But I love that sweet/salty contrast. No, I'm not talking about the D-list celebs.
That's exactly what got me hooked on dulce de leche, the thick caramel sauce I first tasted in Buenos Aires. It tastes like it has a pinch of salt to keep the sweet from getting too sticky.
Where do you stand on this importance issue of pairing chocolate and salt??
