Someone says '??chocolate,'? and I say '??where?'?
Someone says '??grill,'? and my husband says '??medium rare.'?
And when the two meet (the words'?¦not me and my husband'?¦we already did that)'?¦we're both speechless.
There'??s a new line of products from Dove Chocolate's sister brand, Dove Chocolate Discoveries. These "Sweet 'N' Savory" chocolate specialties actually go with grilling season. And no, I don'??t mean an after-dinner chocolate bar or an ice cream treat. Although those are nice too.
These are actually main course delights--sauces and dressings that give your boring summer grill-outs a little chocolate kick. The Chocolate Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette ($12) is an amazing blend of decadent blend of Balsamic vinegar, fig, orange, white chocolate and vanilla that when mixed onto a salad creates an almost sinful sweetness to a healthy start. The Sweet 'N' Spicy Cocoa Rub ($10) is perfect for potatoes, corn and veggies with its versatile blend of cocoa with sea salt, a touch of brown sugar, garlic, onion and smoked paprika. And the Sweet 'N' Smoky Chocolate BBQ Sauce ($12) is my husband's favorite, with molasses, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, champagne vinegar, tomatoes and a sinful spice blend. It goes well on steaks and ribs, but we loved it the best on grilled chicken breasts.
We can'??t wait to try out all the different recipes on Dove Discoveries as well as creating some of our own. Chocolate for dinner? Please and thank you.
These Dove Chocolate Discoveries are available at www.dove-chocolate-discoveries.com or from your local Chocolatier.
