Chocolate Crostini with Olive Oil and Salt

February 18, 2014


1 baguette

1/2 cups Lucero Crushed Mandarin Orange EVOO

2 bars of good dark chocolate

1/2 Tablespoon of a smooth extra virgin olive oil (we used Lucero Chocolate Infused EVOO)

Sea salt for finishing


Too simple for words, these crostini can go sweet or savory. The basic version is simply crunchy French bread slices brushed with Lucero Crushed Mandarin Orange EVOO and lightly toasted. Melt dark chocolate (such as the fruity Scharffen Berger 62% semisweet) with the additional 1/2 tablespoon of EVOO and drizzle over bread, finish with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Voila, you have a snack that goes with cocktails or -- wait for it -- a yummy not-too-sweet afternoon snack in lieu of a cookie.
