Sing it with me now! "Heaven, ... I'm in heaven ...". I attended a demonstration-style cooking class today and was introduced to two new-to-me products, about which all I can say is: Oh. My. Goodness.
I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but I'll experiment and figure it out!
First product - Dolce Nero Chocolate Vincotto. What's that, you ask? Well, let me tell ya. It's an aged kind-of-like-balsamic-vinegar concoction with chocolate. Yes, I did indeed just say like-balsamic-vinegar with chocolate. Who would have thought?? And it's FABULOUS!! Click here if you'd like to read a little blurb about it. At the cooking class, we had it drizzled over vanilla ice cream and nectarines. Divine. So ... guess what I had for dessert tonight? Yep, those gorgeous peaches in the picture above - drizzled with my new chocolate love.
Second product - Biscoff Spread. Have you had this?? It looks like peanut butter, but let me tell ya - it's sooooooo not. It's a spread made out of Biscoff cookies, you know those grown-up graham-cracker'ish tasting shortbread'ish cookies that were often served on long flights? (And you can buy them at the grocery store, of course. But I was first introduced to them on a flight.) Well, apparently the Lotus company that makes those cookies came up with the brilliant idea of smashing them up with some brown sugar and other stuff to make a spreadable delite! As you can see in testing this out when I got home ... you know, just to make sure I didn't buy a 'bad' jar or anything ... I made a quick little s'more. Mmmmmm.
Now I'm on the quest of figuring out what delectable goodies can be made with these new treats. If you've used either of these before, please leave a comment with your wonderful ideas! Pretty please. With sugar on top. Or maybe I should say with Dolce Nero Chocolate Vincotto and Biscoff Spread on top.
