Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Holiday Spice Theme Week.

I don't know how Alan "Patric" McClure at Patric Chocolate (Columbia, MO) hand-crafts such great chocolate bars with layered flavors; but it certainly was a pleasure to taste his Ginger Spice Limited Edition bar today.

You'll be rewarded if you can hold a piece of this bar in your mouth long enough to let the flavors unfold. I experienced the warming of the ginger, followed by a delicious gingerbread-molasses-cookie finish that took me back to childhood. (Ingredients included: cacao, ginger sugar, cocoa butter, cinnamon and vanilla salt.)

It was hard to think of better holiday dessert fare than these warming winter spices combined with great chocolate.
