Yes, we admit it, we've been spending too much at Crisan these days. The call of the $1 gelato is too strong to resist.
And of course, while we're there, why not sample a little pastry to go with? (Did we mention our lack of discipline?)
Well, we think we've found a favorite. It's a tiny little chocolate number that's as sweet as its name.
Don't let the size of the "Kiss Me" fool you. This flourless chocolate cake looks bite size, but if it's just a bite you're looking for, you may want to share it with a friend. And it has something we've never seen on a flourless chocolate cake. FROSTING! A cute little mountain of it, topped with a cherry just to make it pretty.
We thought frosting might be too much on such a dense chocolate pastry, but the textures and different flavors of chocolate are really good together.
We're not going to kid you, the "kiss me" is for serious chocolate lovers only. But if you're not that serious about your chocolate...ummm... could we have yours?
