Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Orange Theme Week. I wish I had time for a little navel gazing today. But, today's sizzling work schedule did not allow for any such thing.

So, I enjoyed taking a break in name only with an organic, dark chocolate (70% cacao) bar from Mink Chocolates. While this bar suffered a bit from some heat in the car, Mink's "Navel Gazing" barre de chocolat was still very good -- with tasty bits of candied orange zest (with just the right amount of sweetness and texture, and a pleasant, almost malty taste) embedded (by hand if I'm not mistaken) in each of its raised compartments (squares).
