Today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Cherry Theme Week.*
The cherries, in this case, were bits of morello cherries embedded (along with pieces of orange and cranberry) in a gianduja praline chocolate Yule Log. Phew, that was a mouthful -- but a tasty one. Judicious carving of this chocolate yule log should yield enough slices for a medium-sized family.
*Note: This is the third Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week we've run on Chocolate Banquet, and the second one this year -- proof that there are a lot of interesting cherry-related possibilities out there in chocolate-land.
