The November skies are getting a bit less sunny. Lemons and cherries helped brighten things up, and today's warm chocolate dessert.

I melted part of a milk chocolate cherry bar from Coco Polo (Highland Park, NJ), and used it to top a lemon souffle, along with some chopped almonds and apricot bits.

This stevia-sweetened, 39% cocoa milk chocolate bar had just the right amount of tart-sweet Montmorency cherries (from Michigan and Utah, according to Coco Polo's website) complemented the lemon souffle nicely. The almonds added some satisfying crunchy texture and also helped cut the sweetness. (I used sweet Meyer Lemon Marmalade and Limoncello in the lemon souffle.)

Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Lemon Theme Week.
