Clearly, I’ve got some catching up to do on this here blog. I still haven’t figured out what’s happening at my office, but even on my laptop, I can’t get in to my admin space. So much for trying to multi-task on my lunch hour…
But since we are officially in fall (seriously – when/how did that happen?), I figured let’s kick it off with a tasty fall recipe. And this is sure not to disappoint. It is a little bit labor intensive with quite a lengthy ingredient list, but I can assure you that you’ll be considered the world’s greatest host should you make this for a party. Holy-S does it look delicious or what?
At Chocomize, customers can select their favorite chocolate bark base (dark, milk, or white) and then add up to five out of 90 fine ingredients to create their choice chocolate bar. This allows for more than 10 billion possible chocolate combinations. In other words, if every citizen of New York City ate one different chocolate bar a day, it would take over 3 years until two people had exactly the same chocolate bar.
Now that’s A LOT of chocolate bars. And with so many possibilities, it’s virtually impossible to ever tire of them. They have 20 different kinds of nuts, over a dozen different kinds of fruit, eleven herbs & spices, candy, decorations (like “Happy Birthday” for example) and even obscure additions like beef jerky and vegetarian bacon (?). I’m overwhelmed just thinking about all the chocolate bars I could make! Fat pants, here I come!

It never ceases to amaze me what people can/are going to do with bacon. The boundaries are clearly limitless. Case in point, this Bacon Brittle. Served as the “bar nut” at The Redhead, a small neighborhood restaurant in New York’s East Village, it’s a true testament that everything is better with bacon.
