Today we are bringing you a delicious recipe for a dark chocolate Valentine’s Day Appetizer from Brittany, our friend at The House That Lars Built. This recipe is the first part of a cheese pairing series she is doing call “Perfect Bites.” They’re a little bit romantic and and a little bit indulgent and all around delicious.
Brittany has partnered up with her sister-in-law Lindsay, owner of Fromage S’il Vous Plait, to educate us on the history and taste of cheese. She has introduced us to unique combinations like this dark chocolate and blue cheese pairing which we love. To learn more about Lindsay’s work go here. For the description and recipe see below. Have a great day.

Point Reyes Blue Cheese served with Dark Chocolate

This is one of my favorite blues! It is creamy and sweet and has that knock out blue flavor every blue cheese lover is after. It is made with raw milk and is from happy California cows. Chocolate you ask? Yes! Chocolate and blue cheese melt at the same rate in your mouth and the bitter, creamy, and sweet flavors found in both the cheese and chocolate marry into a little treat for your taste buds. I used Cocoa Parlor Chocolaterie’s Strawberry Mermaid 67 Chocolate Bar which has dried strawberries and topped it off with some edible gold leaf (get it here
!). To die for!
