I try to keep a bar of dark chocolate around to satisfy a sweet tooth because a little goes a long way.  Quality dark chocolate will keep me from just wanting to eat more and more sugar. (Besides, as all girls know, chocolate might as well be its own food group–absolutely essential to life.  Definitely adds a lot more to the quality of life than say, brussels sprouts!)

But this new thing from Ghirardelli might be hard for me to use in that way.  The Sea Salt Soiree is so amazing that it’s hard not to eat the whole bar.  The idea of salted chocolate appealing to me is new.  One of my friends recommended the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Starbucks, and when I sadly discovered they were out of my seasonal favorite, the Peppermint Mocha, I gave the Hot Chocolate a try.  Now I have two favorites…

The sea salt brings out the sweetness of the otherwise slightly bitter chocolate flavor.  Go ahead, give it a try.  You know you want to.
