Today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.
I don't drink coffee anymore; but if I did, it would taste like these heavenly Cremino al Caffe squares from Giraudi (Torino, Italy).
Cremino al Caffe is an Italian dessert -- a thicker, richer, creamier version of a latte -- with added egg yolks and cream. More whipped dessert than liquid beverage, it is also commonly infused with sweet nutty flavor of hazelnut.
Today's two-layered, Giraudi Cremino al Caffe chocolate squares, true to their name, embodied some of the same characteristics as this Italian dessert. Each square had a luscious, buttery melt and consisted of a wonderfully well balanced blend of chocolate, hazelnut and coffee flavors.
I can't decide which bright orange and royal blue color scheme I liked best today: this Giraudi foil wrapped square, or the beautiful sunset this evening. Both were beautiful.
