Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Mediterranean Theme Week, and the first in a series of Chocolate and Gluten-Free Cookies this week. There's nothing like a petit bit of sea salt (from the Mediterranean or another sea) to liven up caramel and chocolate. In keeping with this theme, Safeway's French Fleur de Sel ice cream contained tiny chocolate covered sea salt caramels. And the Fabrique Delices (Hayward, CA) Macarons came in a (frozen) mixed pack of two flavors: Salted Caramel and Chocolate. Mais oui, these were good. Sweet, but good.
