The (70% cocoa content) Vanilla Bean Toffee Almond bar from Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates (Sacramento, CA) was a tiny symphony of caramelized butter, sugar, Tahitian vanilla beans and toasted almond bits in bittersweet chocolate. This dessert bar was a treat by itself, and also paired with a small mocha, gluten-free brownie square and a mini-scoop of high-quality, vanilla ice cream.

Today was Day #11 of Chocolate and Caramel and Toffee Theme Week.
