After the first Dreamy post’s spookiness, let’s move on to something lighter and —well, dreamier!
Some folks dream in technicolor, others in black and white. Then there are those, like me, who dream in chocolate. (And related pastries, as well —)
Here’s an assortment for you. Sorry I can’t offer actual tastes, WordPress isn’t quite that advanced. But they’re all available at Chocolate Springs in the town of Lenox, in Berkshire County. A beautiful ride in beautiful countryside, with a great reward at the end!
Can you read the description? “Dark Chocolate Mousse on Dark Chocolate Sponge Cake.” Joshua Needleman, chocolatier extraordinary, labels them “All Dark,” for obvious reasons.
I don’t remember what he calls these; what I call them is Dark Yumminess!
And we won’t overlook those up-to-the-moment darlings of the French pastry world, the macarons. One of them is chocolate, naturellement.
Delicious and tempting as all of these are, though, when push comes to shove for the Hub and we’re ordering at the counter, it’s Chocolate Springs’ hot chocolate that wins his vote.
This is the Ur-chocolate of all hot chocolate, and truly the stuff sweet dreams are made on. Thanks, Joshua. May you live long and prosper!
