Savory sweets, we are seeing them everywhere lately. From chipotle chocolate chili, to salted caramel candies, to bacon and egg ice cream. Is this a fickle culinary hipster trend or is it here to stay? While that remains to be seen, we guarantee that this recipe will stay permanently in your repertoire!
It’s another delicious video recipe from Chef John of Food Wishes, it literally only takes 5 minutes, and the combination of crispy bread, dark chocolate, and sea salt will transport you into chocolate lovers heaven. The first time we made this, despite having camera batteries charged, it disappeared before we could photograph it! So…we had to make it again, and quickly snap a photo, for the readers of course! The second time it was taken to a holiday party in Aspen, and the crowd loved it. It’s flavor is salty sweet, with both crunchy and soft textures, and the combination’s are magical chocolatey goodness. People were seriously pulling and tugging at a red wool peacoat asking for the recipe.
One question you may have as the party goers did: Is dark chocolate crustini bruschetta a dessert or an appetizer? The answer: it is whatever you want it to be. In fact, it may just be breakfast for us one day, paired with a piping hot Sumatra coffee. Read Chef Johns post, wine pairing recommendation, and full ingredient list here. (Note: For the dark chocolate, we used a Lindt brand bar with 70% cocoa, found in the baking section of our regular grocery store. And, as you may notice in the photo, we were lacking the Maldon sea salt with the nice thick crystals, so we used what we had, but it was still chock full of deliciousness. Is deliciousness a word? )
