Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Olive Theme Wk. It is more time-consuming to prepare chocolate items from scratch, or assembling them from a variety of ingredients. However, this week's olive theme seemed to call for it. Fortunately, mixes exist -- and gluten-free ones at that, such as this chocolate brownie mix from Pamela's Products. I incorporated Star extra virgin olive oil into this mix; and I ate the finished brownies with some savory walnuts I made (with rosemary, Italian herb mix, olive oil, and salt).
In the future, I hope to make other chocolate and savory items, e.g. a (gluten-free) olive oil and herb bread, with some chocolate chunks; or a chocolate mousse made with olive oil and sea salt. As always, there seems to be endless possibilities with chocolate.
