Fans of Ina Garten and dark chocolate may wish to check out the Barefoot Contessa’s new line of sweet treats:
Chewy Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels—very light on the salt for those who aren’t into salty, with distinct cocoa notes from the chocolate.
Dark Chocolate French Bark—creamy dark chocolate with a milkiness that even children would love (there’s milkfat in the recipe). The 6.5-ounce bar is topped with cashews, dried apricots and cherries, crystallized ginger and raisins. The French don’t use the word bark, but mendiant, which means beggar. See the origin of the term in our Chocolate Glossary.
Dark Chocolate Toffee With Almonds, very crunchy and made with butter, although if you like your toffee very buttery, this is not that style.
