Chewy Mocha Bars

Rich bars topped with a lush firm ganache. These bars are very chewy and strong in mocha flavor. These bars are very decadent. One small bar is the perfect treat to accompany your cup of tea.

Do you recognize that when you have a recipe in mind, do some testing and end up with something completely different but super delicious? That’s what happened when I made these mocha bars. I’m pretty sure you can relate if you’re a(n amateur) baker like me. When I was still in middle school (highschool), I used to work at a kind-of bakery (don’t ask) called Bakker Bart. We sold these amazing brownie bars with nuts and a delicious ganache on top. I’m not sure if they still sell it (I doubt it) but I was craving those brownies so bad last week so I decided to make my own. Unfortunately, I didn’t plan ahead very well and ended up missing a couple of ingredients. Being the lazy person I am, I decided to work with what I had and see what would happen. Results? Delicious chewy mocha bars with a ganache topping. These bars are more like a chewy cookie than brownies, but who cares what they’re called when they taste delicious? Exactly. No one. Read more

Hello chocoholics! How’s everyone? I’m having a bit of a down-day, but still trying to push through though 🙂 There’s a short story I need to get off my chest today. It’s totally non-food related so feel free to skip to the next paragraph for foodtalk 😉 This morning, I went to the doctor  and unfortunately it wasn’t my regular doctor (he’s great!). I didn’t go for something super serious by the way (no worries). The thing is though, this doctor was horrible. This woman just couldn’t listen to me. Every time I started talking, she would blab right through my story or finish my sentence for me (WTF?!). And she kept asking the same question over and over again even though I already answered it like a gazillion times! I seriously think she wasn’t listening to a word I said. In addition, she kept writing down my symptoms wrong and twisting my words. Éven after I corrected her multiple times. Also, at the end she blamed me that the appointment took more time than planned. The whole reason the appointment took too long was because she was all over the place! I was trying to get to the point and get out of there, but she kept asking the same questions and misunderstanding what I was saying! I’m still upset about it, even though I know I shouldn’t be lol. Silver lining: She decided to refer me to another doctor, because she couldn’t figure out the problem. There, end of rant. Back to food. 

Today I’ll be sharing the BEST brownies EVER with you guys. Read more
