Several weeks ago, Mr. SGCC’s paralegal, Joanne, raved about a recipe she’d made and loved. One of the things I love about Joanne is that she’s an adventurous foodie who is always willing to try new things. She’s a girl after my own heart. The recipe she spoke of was for something called Smoky Chocolate Crackers. Hmmm. Chocolate crackers, huh? I was both skeptical and intrigued at the same time.
The next day, Joanne brought me a little bag filled with said chocolate crackers, so that I could try them. They were a deep, dark brown – almost black – flecked with bits of chopped almonds. They were crisp and buttery, with an almost cookie-like texture and intensely rich chocolate flavor. The crackers were sweet, but ever so slightly so - just enough to remind you that there was chocolate in them. And, they were good, people. Really, good. So good, in fact, that I managed to polish off the whole bag in the car before I even finished the two mile drive home. Now that, dear readers, is a recipe worth keeping. And, sharing.
As soon I got home, I called Joanne and made her promise to bring me a copy of the recipe. I had to make these delicious crackers for myself. The sooner, the better! read more >>
