I was really craving chocolate the other day, and it’s honestly been a little while since I’ve had that “got-to-have-it” feeling!  I’ve been on more of a savory kick, reveling in recipes like butter sage sweet potato gnocchi and french onion burgers.  But for someone who doesn’t drink coffee, this recipe is a surprising favorite of mine!

I think the thing that does me in is the full spectrum of flavors.  Chocolatey sweetness, balanced by bitter coffee, and savory salt.  Well I couldn’t write “salty salt”, now could I?  Because of the coffee flavor, I think they’d be a great pick-me-up morning breakfast snack, kind of like a biscotti, although much much softer.  Paired with a cup of coffee, sitting in a cafe on a lazy morning, just watching people go by.  The coffee flavor is fairly pronounced, so you can always add 1 Tbsp. and taste test to adjust to your desired coffee level.

Honestly, they’re also great served with this bailey’s chocolate mousse I shared Monday!  The mousse adds additional sweetness to offset the bitter coffee (hey, plus some “tipsy”).  Besides, you can never go wrong adding some more chocolate to any dessert!
