I love all the new flavor profiles exploding around chocolate. I’ve been seeing such an amazing array of flavor combinations in cookies, brownies, ice creams and chocolate confections as this trend takes off. I kept hearing about a little gem of a bakery in Scarborough that I recently had the chance to visit, and they had what’s become my latest addictive find– Double Chocolate Salt and Pepper cookies. One bite and I was hooked. These are the perfect balance of deep chocolate flavor, not too sweet or heavy, with a fantastic crisp texture and a finish that leaves a lingering black pepper burn. Lip smacking good – you’ll find them at Cliffside Hearth Bread Company. I need to schedule another visit on a Saturday, when they are fully stocked with all their specialty breads, to properly review all their goods. If the cookies are any indication, I’ll be in for a real treat.
