Chocolate Dulce de Leche bars

Luscious Pastry knows that marriage involves compromise. For instance, a married person must try to be accepting of their spouse’s friends. So, for example, if you are a liberal-minded lady who happens to like to bake, and your dear husband has some very politically conservative friends, well, here’s where some compromise comes in. Even if one such friend is particularly trying, and mockingly refers to our current President as “the Chocolate Messiah”. Okay, Mr. I’m-40-years-old-and-Still-Living-with-My-Parents, we at Luscious just want you to know that you might want to reconsider that messiah phrase, and apply it instead to our Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars. 

They might not save the world (or maybe!), but our new chocolate dessert bars are crazy good. We fold dark chocolate into a dulce de leche custard, then spread it over shortbread that’s got a little spicy kick to it. The result is rich but light with a complex flavor, and of course plenty of chocolately love going on. 

Luscious is sweet, but Luscious can also be salty. No we’re not referring to our joke about the 12-inch pianist, but rather a savory new snack we’re calling Cheese Wafers. They are crunchy, cheese infused little biscuits, and they are addictive, and we would be more than happy to get you hooked. 

No Violet Crown Supper Club this week, which is hard to live without, but we didn’t think you should have to go through the weekend without a little Luscious. We think our Cheese Wafers and Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars are the perfect sophisticated weekend snacks, so we’re offering them from 2:45-3:15 this Friday after school at Brentwood park, then from 3:30 until we run out at Anne-Charlotte’s house (email ACP for directions).

One last night note before we get back to the kitchen: Luscious is taking orders for father’s day!  We delivered prettily boxed gifts of Luscious Pastry treats to teachers and moms last week with great success, so we will be all over father’s day.
