Chocolate and peanut butter. Those two together seems like a match made in heaven.
My current obsession runs deep. Inspiration to create the most elegant combination can be found in every bakery, every food photo site, on the shelves in grocery store aisles. Pulling my favorites, the things that hung in the back of my mine, refusing to be forgotten, all coming together into one elegantly layered dessert and sliced to serve.
