We first made this recipe two years ago, a decadent treat for Christmas day. Since then it has graced our table a number of times on auspicious occasions, when something particularly decadent is called for. We have nicknamed it Chocolate Butter. And well, considering it is simply one part chocolate, one part butter, one part sugar, a few eggs and a little cinnamon for good measure, I think that is fairly apt. It is at once dense, rich and intense – serve in thin slices with fresh cream and berries before retiring to a comfortable chair to doze in a calorie-induced slumber.
As this will be my last post for 2012, I’ll take this opportunity to give thanks to all our wonderful readers, my fabulous fellow bloggers, and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
