I have to admire the Swiss for their wonderful, smooth milk chocolate. Camille Bloch - "Mon Chocolat Suisse" -- is no exception. Their milk chocolate bar with thick liquid Kirsch (cherry liqueur) filling was adult candy bar good.

I ate a few squares of this 8-square bar. Each square included a dome in the center where the Kirsch filling was housed. Half of the Kirsch bar was broken carefully in into bits and incorporated into a batch of gluten-free banana, cherry, chocolate chunk muffins. I used King Arthur Flour's Gluten Free Muffin Mix (scented with nutmeg) as the base mix, and added in chopped fresh cherries, banana, and some cinnamon and other spices.

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate, Banana and Cherry Theme Week.
