A rich, chocolaty treat, drenched in dark chocolate and espresso. The flavors meld together so beautifully, you don’t even particularly notice the espresso. A perfect indulgence for holidays, Valentine’s Day, Christmas… snow days. Well, obviously I’m inventing excuses when you don’t really need one. These delectable morsels are rich … but divine … and when you have that chocolate craving … they completely satisfy.
